The report notes that although 2013 is likely to be micro-inverter shipments topped 500MW year, but will compete with the price, this year for the supplier will be a challenging year. Many providers are emerging markets, "eyeing", have launched a new product, which contains two large photovoltaic 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 todrive strong growth in micro-inverter market total revenue growth of over $ 250 million, however, the next few years, micro. Inverter prices still showed a downward trend, expected 2017 global micro-inverter sector's total revenue will reach $ 700 million. "
Report, as a leading global supplier of micro inverters, Enphase Energy last year, the largest share was
residential PV market. However, with the increasing rise of other
micro-inverter suppliers, the enterprises are facing increasingly fierce
competition. Based on this, Enphase and other vendors have looked
"targeting" new markets and actively promote the development of
commercial micro-off grid inverter systems departments to further expand its market
So far, the strategy has been implemented Enphase revealed signs of success. Recently, the company announced that
Fresh Produce Ltd.'s Installed capacity of 2.3 megawatts of solar micro
inverter supply project. Canada
According to the report predicts that by 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, the vast majority of micro-inverter is between the size of 10-100kW system you are using.
