Last week Bloomberg reported solar panel makers were boosting production in 2012 as demand in China was expected to double. The $36 billion market is shifting from Europe to Asia. According to estimates compiled by Bloomberg shipments from the five biggest producers of polysilicon solar modules are expected to rise 27 percent to 37 percent, with China's Suntech Power Holdings Co. and Yingli Green Energy Holdings Co. leading the way.

Bloomberg New Energy Finance predicts that China, who trails only Germany and Italy in new installations, will become the top solar market in 2013 as subsidies for new projects are being cut by European nations. "Europe is going down and Asia is going up," said Matt Feinstein, an analyst at Lux Research Inc.
