PV Technology, Production and Cost Outlook: 2012-2016


Over the past year and a half, the PV industry has experienced remarkable price declines at each point along the supply chain from polysilicon to the module. While these declines have prompted record installations globally, the effect on the supply chain itself has been severe with margin collapse, and the consequences thereof, plaguing today's over-crowded and cut-throat PV landscape. Once promising technology upstarts are now shuttering capacity or ultimately exiting the market, while even leading incumbents scramble to revive demand at more favorable price points.

With so many companies and technologies attempting to avoid insolvency and obsolescence, understanding the current and forecasted supply strategies, market dynamics and technology innovations will be crucial for survival.
