Market Research Report Single User License: $3325

Report Highlights

Global revenues from solar cells and modules totaled nearly $38.7 billion in 2011 and should decline to $28.6 billion in 2012. Total revenues are expected to reach $78.1 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.3%.

Report Scope

The scope of this study encompasses the major PV technologies: monocrystalline silicon, multicrystalline silicon, thin films (e.g., amorphous silicon, cadmium telluride, copper indium diselenide), compound semiconductor materials (e.g., gallium arsenide) and emerging approaches such as nanostructured films, dye- sensitized solar cells and organic technologies.  BCC Research analyzes each technology, examines its current and potential efficiency, assesses the current market status of each, examines its future market impact and presents shipments of PV cells and their values for 2011, 2012 and 2017.

Various technical issues are discussed and a thorough economic analysis of each technology and its impact on future growth is presented.  We also look at polysilicon, building integrated photovoltaic markets (BIPV) and concentrated photovoltaics (CPV) at a higher level with the goal of helping readers understand their relationship to the PV market.

In this report, we analyze the PV industry on a global basis, including manufacturing capacity and consumption by various regional markets.  We examine government funding and support, industry involvement, standards, the environmental impact of solar energy and the impact of incentives to use PV.  We also discuss the potential for applications—both grid-connected and standalone.  Projections of cell and module shipments by major applications are also presented for the five years covered in our study.
