The eastward shift of global photovoltaic market


After experiencing the trough in 2012, the global PV industry carried out a large scale of the whole, and the PV application market gradually pick up. In 2013 the global PV market to achieve the new installed capacity of 39.5 GW, compared with 2012 increased by 23.4%. Driven by policy influence, the global PV market center rapidly eastward, China, Japan to become the world's emerging market main force.

In 2013, all the main countries of the regional policy for photovoltaic industry are to support attitude, but due to the decline in technical progress and costs, with Germany, Italy as the representative of the traditional European countries to varying degrees, regulates the amount of subsidies. In 2014, the major European countries to cut photovoltaic electricity price subsidies, the new PV installed amounts are likely to continue to decline in 2013.

With major European countries continue to reduce the new installed capacity to form a strong contrast is that China, Japan and the United States as the representative of the emerging photovoltaic market capacity continues to increase.

Because of the huge investment in the construction of photovoltaic power plants, very test of corporate financing capacity. With the deepening of the financial institutions for the photovoltaic industry, the financial market for the recognition of photovoltaic power generation is also gradually increased. 2013 global new energy financing amounted to $.

In the favorable domestic industrial policy support, the rapid expansion of China's photovoltaic market, 2013 annual new installed 12.92 GW, occupy the one-third of the world's new market share. The development of large-scale centralized grid connected power station is still the main development mode of China's new PV market in the stimulation of the PV area benchmark price. In 2013 the new PV installed, concentrated photovoltaic power plants accounted for 93.8%. While the distributed PV market has been highly concerned by all sectors of the community due to the policy, but also because of its business model is not yet clear, the proportion of the total installed capacity has been low.
