With the Global annual solar power production is estimated to reach 500GW by 2020, from 40.134 GW in 2014, making this market one of the fastest growing one. It is a billion dollar market with China leading the market of producing Photo voltaic cells. Germany is one of the leading countries for installing Photovoltaic across the country and has an installed capacity of 37 GW. It leads the pack with China, United States of America, Canada, Japan and Italy closely on its heels.
With fossil fuel prices fluctuating continuously and disasters like Fukushima and Chernobyl raising serious questions about nuclear power, renewable sources of energy are the answer to the worlds growing need for power. Hydro Power has environmental concerns so apart from water the other renewable source of energy in abundance is Solar. The Earth receives 174 petawatts of solar energy every year. It is the largest energy source on the Earth. Other resources like oil and gas, water, coal etc. require lot of effort and steps to produce electricity, solar energy farms can be established easily which can harness electricity and the electricity produced is simply given to the grid.
Falling costs; stable policy and regulation; downstream innovation and expansion; and various incentive schemes for the use of renewable energy for power generation are driving the solar power market at an exponential rate.
On the flipside, high initial investment, intermittent energy Source, and requirement of large installation area to setup solar farms are restraining the market from growth.
In the recent years, lot of research is going on in this field to make production easier, cheaper and also to make the solar panels smaller and more customer friendly. Lot of efforts are being put into increase the efficiency of solar panels which used to have a very meagre efficiency percentage. Different techniques like Nano-crystalline solar cells, thin film processing, metamorphic multijunction solar cell, polymer processing and many more will aid the future of this industry.
This report comprehensively analyzes the Germany Solar Power Market by segmenting it based on type (Concentrating type, Non Concentrating type, Fixed Array, Single Axis Tracker, and Dual Axis Tracker) and by Materials (Crystalline Silicon, Thin Film, Multijunction Cell, Adaptive Cell, Nano crystalline, and others). Estimates in each segment are provided for the next five years. Key drivers and restraints that are affecting the growth of this market were discussed in detail. The study also elucidates on the competitive landscape and key market players.
