Report noted that although 2013 is likely to be micro-inverter shipments topped 500MW year, but on competition and prices , this year for the supplier will still be a challenging year . Many suppliers have on emerging markets , " eyeing " , have launched a new product , which contains two large PV inverter manufacturer : SMA and Power-One. IHS said that in 2013 , the inverter market competition battle smoke, micro-inverter prices are likely to fall 16%.
However , IHS added: "Although the 2013 price drop of double-digit percentage , but shipments are still expected to drive strong growth in micro-inverter market growth in total revenue over $ 250 million , but the next few years , micro- inverter prices are likely downward trend is expected in 2017 global micro-inverter sector total revenues will reach $ 700 million . "
Report, as a leading global suppliermicro-inverters , Enphase Energy last year, occupying the largest
residential PV market share. However, as other micro-inverter suppliers rising
power , the enterprises are facing increasingly fierce competition . Based on
this , Enphase and other vendors have looked "targeting " of new
markets and actively promote micro-inverter systems in the commercial sector
development , to further expand its market share. U.S.
So far , Enphase implementation strategy has shown signs of success . Recently, the company announced that the Canadian Vine Fresh Produce Ltd. 's Installed capacity of 2.3 MW solar project supply micro- inverter. According to the report predicts that in 2017 , one-third of global shipments of micro-inverter system will be located in the commercial sector , while in 2012 this figure was only 9%. In addition, in 2017 , most of the micro- inverter is between 10-100kW scale used by the system .
In 2012, the
accounted for the
global micro-inverter shipments 72%. However , IHS forecasts , given the
micro-inverter sector market focus gradually to new markets in Europe and Asia
such transfer , in 2017 , the United States
market share of global proportion will fall to 50%. U.S.
According to IHS forecasts, in addition to the
micro-inverters in the UK, France, Japan
the success of these four new markets, the most significant . If the
micro-inverter with charger suppliers to quickly enter these new markets and overcome their
unique challenges , there are still opportunities to reap lucrative new markets
for the hidden market opportunities . Australia
