Driven by the emergence of a strong set of regionally diverse country markets in the last two years, the global PV supply chain overcame the stress of overcapacity, now benefiting from a healthy supply-demand market. Though supply-demand stability and input cost reduction are expected to continue in 2015, the continually evolving regional tariff landscape will pose price risks.
