Solar PV Module Market Set to Decline Despite Significant Capacity Addition by 2020
Solar Photovoltaics (PV) is the conversion of solar energy - light and heat from the sun - into electrical energy, which is consequently supplied either to the electric grid or to the consumer directly. This conversion is carried out by photosensitive semiconducting materials, assembled in the form of modules, usually referred to as solar PV modules or just solar modules. Since a single module will only produce a few hundred Watts (W) of electricity, multiple PV modules are connected to form a PV array to produce greater output.

Global Solar PV module market value increased from US$ 36.6 Billion (bn) in 2010 to US$ 44.27bn in 2011. However, with the reduction in the module prices starting 2011, the market value dropped to US$ 30.32bn in 2015. Between 2016 and 2020, the market value dropped from US$ 39.7bn to 33.43bn. The reduction in module price was attributed to the excess production by silicon manufacturers. On the flip side, the reduction in module prices resulted in an increase in the installed capacity in 2016 and is estimated to remain stable through the forecast period. The total installed capacity between 2016 and 2020 is estimated to be 334 GW whereas it stood at 187 GW between 2011 and 2015.

China has been one of the fastest-growing industrial economies in recent decades. Burgeoning energy demand and rapid industrialization have pushed the country to increase the share of renewable energy in its energy mix and reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. China, therefore, became the largest consumer of solar PV modules in 2015, overtaking Japan and the US. The annual installed capacity in China grew from 500 Megawatts (MW) in 2010 to 15.13 GW in 2015, while Japan and the US held the second and third position, with approximately 11.0 GW and 7.33 GW, respectively.

The PV modules prices are estimated to further decline during the forecast period due to competitive market conditions. With minimal price differences between module suppliers, buyers are price sensitive, thus creating persistent price pressure. Furthermore, module prices have declined for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to, the anti-dumping tariffs implemented by the US on Chinese modules, the euro and yen depreciation, and the downward adjustment of the minimum import prices.

Solar PV module market set to decline despite significant capacity addition by 2020.

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) module annual installed capacity is set to increase gradually from 49.77 Gigawatts (GW) in 2015 to 69.86 GW by 2020, due to an increase in economies of scale, emerging technologies, and policy-based governmental and institutional support for the industry, according to research.

The company’s latest report states that PV module prices are estimated to dip further during the forecast period due to competitive market conditions. Despite an increase in module capacity additions, the global solar PV market will decline in value from $39.71 billion in 2016 to $33.43 billion in 2020. With minimal price differences between module suppliers, buyers are price sensitive, thus creating persistent price pressures.

Praveen Kumar Ama, the Analyst covering Power, explains: “With the year-on-year reduction in global module prices, the projects have less capital investment and have driven the solar power system installations on the whole.

“The crystalline silicon (c-Si) and thin-film modules have seen large price drops since 2010. The average price of a module was approximately $2.17 per watt and $1.99 per watt in 2010 for c-Si and thin-film modules, respectively. Module prices fell sharply in 2011 due to a production rush, leading to oversupply.

“Falling prices stabilized starting 2014 and reached $0.61 per watt and $0.60 per watt in 2015 for c-Si and thin-film module, respectively. This price is expected to fall further during the forecast period, reaching $0.48 per watt and $0.46 per watt for c-Si and thin-film module, respectively, by 2020.”

Growing environmental concern has been the key driver for renewable energy, as countries across the world have sought to achieve energy stability and independence, and to minimize their carbon footprints.

Ama continues: “Despite climate concerns, some countries have either rolled back incentive schemes or reduced the level of incentive, which has raised uncertainty over the profitability of solar projects. This may hamper the growth of solar installations worldwide. For instance, Feed-in Tariff (FiT) levels have been reduced in the UK and Japan. Japan has also proposed changes in its FiT structure, which will have a negative impact on the growth of the solar PV sector.”
