  5. 5. Executive SummaryThe report titled “The US Solar Photovoltaic Market Outlook to 2015” provides acomprehensive analysis on various aspects such as On-Grid and Off-Grid Cumulative andAnnual Installed Capacity, PV power per capita, market segmentation and competitivelandscape of the major players operating in the country. The report also entails the SWOTanalysis of solar PV market in the US.The future outlook presented the base case, conservative case and aggressive casescenario factor analysis providing an insight on the prospects in the solar PV cumulativeand annual installed capacity for the country.In 2009, 435 MW of PV installations were carried out in the country. The PV installationsregistered a twofold growth in 2010 reaching 820 MW, although the US market share forthe global PV demand has stood between 5% - 7% since 2005 onwards.During the period from 2006-2010, the cumulative installed capacity increased from 624MW in 2006 to 2,528 MW in 2010, rising at a CAGR of 41.9%. This increasing demand forsolar PV products placed the US as one of the significant markets after Germany andSpain. In reality, the US is one of the countries which can sustain the solar PV demand forlong term in future.In 2010, the PV components i.e. PV wafer, cell and module registered a surge inproduction with 624 MW, 1,058 MW, 1,205 MW respectively. This increased growth isprimarily because of rise in the global demand, increase in the local demand and surgeregistered in the production capacity of plants (new plants were added or increase in thecapacity of the existing plants).The year 2010, registered a stupendous growth in the utility sector where the installationsin the segment increased from 70 in 2009 to 242 in 2010. In the last five years, the shareof utility installations has increased from nearly 0% in 2006 to 27.6% in 2010.The PV installations in the country registered a diversified look with 16 states installing 10MW of PV as compared to only 4 states in 2007. A total of 5 states in the US registered PVinstallation of more than 50 MW in 2010. The year 2010, showcases a complete differentpicture with states like New Jersey, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and others increasing theirPV installations. The share of California has reduced to 30% of the total US PV marketwhich depicts lower dependency on a single state for PV growth.However, since 2008 the demand for Single-Crystal Si has increased tremendously. Thedemand for Concentrator technology is rising gradually over the years. The shipment of PVcells and modules for Single-Crystal has increased from 86 KWp in 2006 to 581 KWp in2009, becoming the largest Crystalline Silicon technology shipped in 2009. In 2009, theshipments of PV cell and module made up of cast and ribbon and thin-film technologywere 404 KWp and 267 KWp respectively. 6
  6. 6. The best case situation assumes a spur in the growth of installations especially in theutility scale projects as several utilities will sign power purchase agreements or willdevelop their own projects in order to fulfill their states mandates to propel the amountof renewable electricity bought and sold. The US solar PV market may beat Germany tobecome the largest solar market in the world by 2015 with the cumulative installedcapacity of ~ MW by 2015.Key Topics Covered in the Report: • The feed-in-tariffs introduced in the country and their effect on the solar PV market • The annual and cumulative PV installations along with PV power per capita in the country from 2006-2010 • Future Outlook on the basis of assumed scenarios i.e. base case, worst case and aggressive case on cumulative installed capacity, annual installed capacity and PV power per capita, from 2011-2015 • SWOT analysis of the solar PV industry and Macro Economic Environment in the country • Competitive Landscape of the various players operating in the country 7
