2016 is set to be another record year for solar globally, with the market growing by 45% to nearly 74 GW. However, global demand will slow down next year, expected to drop by 7% as major policy shifts and regulatory uncertainty in several major markets, namely China, Japan, Germany and the U.K., pose headwinds going into 2017. The market will bottom out at a still- impressive 69 GW in 2017, with the contraction abated by triple-digit growth in India, U.S. utility spillover, recently announced tenders in nascent markets, and module oversupply conditions leading to falling module average selling prices (ASPs), especially in India, China and Southeast Asia.
