Overview of the solar photovoltaic installation market
Based on figures provided by the report, the global solar photovoltaic installation market was 29.6 gigawatts in the year 2011, and growing at a 10.7% CAGR, is expected to be 60.05 gigawatts by 2018. In terms of revenue, the solar photovoltaic installation market is expected to be worth US$145.9 billion by 2018.
The global solar photovoltaic installation market is primarily driven by the mounting worldwide demand for electricity coupled with abundant supply of solar energy. Favorable government regulations and schemes, concerns regarding sustainability and environment conservation, lower prices, and adequate output efficiency have also fueled the growth of the solar photovoltaic installation market.
Accounting for more than 75.7% of the global solar photovoltaic installation, the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region dominated the market in 2011. This was followed by Asia-Pacific in terms of solar photovoltaic installation capacity. This is mainly due to increasing popularity and dependence on solar power in emerging countries such as China and India. Most of the demand for solar photovoltaic installation systems comes from commercial, utility-scale, and residential sectors. This paradigm shift from nonrenewable to renewable energy sources, support from the government, and reduced prices are projected to propel the Asia-Pacific market for solar photovoltaic installation in the forecast period. Among the major end uses, the residential sector accounted for 30.22% of the total demand for solar photovoltaic installation and is expected to be the fastest-growing segment, accounting for 33.36% of the demand by 2018. In terms of technology, crystalline silicon solar photovoltaic installation held the largest market share with 80.81% in 2011, while in terms of grid type, grid-connected solar photovoltaic installation was the largest segment in 2011 with 98.03% of the total installed capacity.
