Examine the Photovoltaic Industry Analysis and Forecast

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report related to the Renewable industry is available in its catalogue.

Photovoltaic Industry Analysis and Forecast

http://www.reportlinker.com/p089502/Photovoltaic-Industry-Analysis-and-Forecast.html

The leading research firm RNCOS has come up with its latest report "Photovoltaic Industry Analysis and Forecast" that evaluates the global photovoltaic (PV) industry. It focuses on the growing marketplace for PV industry at global as well country level and analyzes the current market trends, evolving market, and growth prospects of the PV industry.

Europe dominates the global PV market, and Germany is the largest European PV market, accounting for more than 90% PV market installed capacity within the continent in 2006.

The report contains detailed data on cumulative PV capacity, annual installed PV capacity, and fund allocated to PV etc. It will help the clients to understand the driving forces of PV industry along with the detailed future opportunities and analyze the leading-edge opportunities critical to the success of the PV industry.

For the purpose of future perspective, PV market greenpeace/EPIA scenario has been taken into consideration under set of certain assumptions.

Key Findings

- The dominance of silicon-based wafer is fading away and it is expected that in long term, silicon supply situation will ease up.

- Declining cost of PV provides opportunities for the deployment of this technology mainly in developing low cost economies such as India and China.

- Despite the high cost of PV modules, there has been considerable investment primarily in the developed countries on R&D in the PV sector. Due to this, total cumulative installed PV capacity reached 6634 MWp in the end of 2006.

- Global PV industry still has to achieve self-sufficiency. It is in its very nascent stage, which is highly driven by government initiatives. Japanese PV industry seems to achieve self-sufficiency where government initiatives are declining in PV.

- From future perspective, it is expected that countries such as China and India will dominate the global PV industry.

Key Issues & Facts Analyzed
