What’s Included

Databases and Market Trackers

Four core market trackers, include MW shipments and production, revenues, units, ASPs and market shares:

  • PV Module Supply Chain Tracker – Combines analysis of the markets for polysilicon, solar wafers, PV cells and modules, with forecasts for PV installations, assessing the balance between supply and demand, and the impact on pricing and margins throughout the supply chain. (5-Year Forecast).
  • PV Installations Tracker – Quarterly updates with detailed tracking/forecasting of installations in all key PV markets, including annual and quarterly data by installation and system type. (5-Year Forecast)
  • PV Suppliers Tracker – Detailed data on the performance of leading companies in the PV module supply chain and detailed data on capacity, production, utilization and shipments for polysilicon, wafer, cell and module suppliers
  • PV Manufacturing & Equipment Spending Tracker – This bi-annual report tracks production, capacity and equipment spending on wafers, cells and modules, supply chain tool demand, technology roadmap adoption rates and more. Also provides quarterly data on market shares for cell types and production tools.
  • PV Systems Price Tracker - This biannual report contains the PV System Prices and Revenues by region, market, and segment. The report aims to show the full system price (or CAPEX) for the investor in the system as it is completed. The total system price therefore includes margins of the suppliers to the system, as well as development costs.

Strategic reports are published regularly, providing a deep-dive into hot topics and key market segments. Recently published reports include:

  • PV Market Trend Survey - China
