Global Solar Demand Monitor: Q3 2016

by Mohit Anand

The global solar landscape is very diverse – top three markets make up the majority of demand, there are over ten major gigawatt-scale markets globally, 20 will be multi-gigawatt by the end of the decade, and Latin America and the Middle East are regions on the rise. At the same time, solar policies globally are in a state of flux, transitioning away from direct subsidies to competitively procured solar, leading to more complex market dynamics and business models. There is now, more than ever, the need to dive deeper into the top markets to sustain growth as they mature while expanding an understanding of major markets and those on the rise.
