Detailed data analysis will help potential investor to know the current market trends, and growth forecasts of the photovoltaic industry.
     
    This report contains detailed data on global cumulative photovoltaic capacity, by country annual installed photovoltaic capacity, and investment done in sustainable energy (Solar Photovoltaic Energy, Biofuels, Biomass and Waste, Wind, Other Renewables, EE/Other Low Carbon). This report will help the clients to understand the market drivers and restrictions in the growth of photovoltaic industry. On the global warming issue this report has also analyzed the tonnes of CO2 saved with the use of photovoltaic cells.
     
    Market Overview
    As crude oil prices are non-stop rising to a new height in the last 4 years virtually forcing the many governments to look to solar photovoltaic as an alternative fuel. European Union dominates the global photovoltaic market in the year 2006 European Union cumulative installed photovoltaic was 43.46 percent which is expected to increase to 49.45 percent by the year 2007. Germany is the biggest player in the photovoltaic industry but it is expected that by the end of the year 2012 U.S. will takeover Germany in annual installed capacity.
