Since last year, the EU exports for
China's photovoltaic module dual investigations
initiated since the development of photovoltaic industry on verge of collapse
state, where last year's PV manufacturers, ,
about 80% of production. Although the state has promulgated a series of
policies stimulating domestic demand, PV, but there was little improvement overall
development, joint development of the PV inverter industry Difficult. Zhejiang Province
PV inverter shipments in 2011 there has been a slight decline, but is expected is expected in 2015 doubled to 52GW. According to the market research company said the PV inverter shipments in 2011 from the previous year 23.6GW fell to 23.4GW. 2013 photovoltaic inverter marketing will drop 20 percent to $ 20.5 billion, compared with 2012 decreased by $ 5 billion. This is because the global PV installed capacity and PV modules due to reduced average selling prices.
2012 global PV installed capacity reached 32GW, an increase of 14%, by the increased demand for the Japanese market, the domestic distributed generation started, is expected in 2013 will be maintained at more than 10% growth.
Meanwhile, in 2013, the invertermanufacturers will continue to face challenges, including certification standards, lower cost base and local manufacturing requirements as well as from local suppliers fierce competition. 2013 could be another challenging year, global revenue growth was flat, traditional markets will gradually shift, supplier base will be remodeling.
As prices continue to decline in the inverter, as well as Japan, China, India and other emerging markets is difficult to penetrate the United States may lead to irreparable growth in emerging markets such as Germany and Italy, the decline in core markets, the world's top ten PV inverter manufacturers will probably have been affected. Since the reference price in some Asian countries is very low, next year inverter manufacturers face the biggest obstacle is that they can not get to make up the European profitable business operations in
With the PV inverter revenues declined 15%, reaching 4.4 billion euros ($ 6.1 billion) because the average selling price decreased by 14%, which is higher than the previous forecast of 10% is even higher. The market research firm expects PV inverter shipments will rise 5 percent in 2012, reaching 24.5GW. This will 2013-2015 years to achieve the expected 52GW shipments tectonic dynamic.
