10 trends in the world's photovoltaic development

In 2017, the global solar energy market surged 26%, breaking the 100 gigawatts PV installed capacity for the first time. According to GTM Research, 106GW PV installed capacity is expected to be increased in 2018.

1. global solar bidding continues to increase

In 2017, a total of 53 countries participated in the tender or auction of PV projects, compared with 32 in the second half of 2016, 21 more. In 2018, 29 new countries were bidding or auctioning.

2. the global market is diversified, but the big powers still dominate.

China, the United States, India and Japan will continue to dominate demand in 2018, but their share in the global market will fall from 82% in 2017 to 72% in 2018.
The number of countries that install 1GW and above each year will reach 14 from 9 now. Brazil, Egypt, Mexico, Holland and Spain crossed the threshold of 1GW for the first time in 2018.

3. the US market is expanding

The 18 states of the United States will increase the installed capacity of 1GW and above from 2018 to 2022.

4. PV can compete and even compete with coal and gas

According to the "global solar demand monitoring" report, the recent bidding photovoltaic project is promoting the average PPA to compete with the cost of coal natural gas.

5.The bumpy road of component supply           

The rate of excess capacity is the ratio between available capacity and demand. If the ECR range of healthy solar components is defined as between 30% and 60%, then when ECR is in this range, the price of the component can fall at a stable price. When the ECR exceeds this range, the market is oversupply and the price will fall at a faster rate.

6. system balance cost will become an important driving factor for reducing the cost.

In 2018, the balanced cost of the system will still account for a large share of the cost of large photovoltaic plant projects. In addition to reducing hardware costs, efficiency improvements, efficient components and 1500V systems will provide BOS cost savings, helping the solar energy to compete with the power sources in other markets around the world.

7. the micro inverter will exceed the centralized and cascade inverter.

Micro inverter and direct current optimizer are only a small part of the whole inverter market. However, with the continuous development of the distributed generation market and the high attention to security, the market will continue to expand.

8. solar system prices are high in the United States

Us residential solar systems are priced higher than the other major OECD economies.
In the United States, the states have a big difference in pricing. "Changes in hardware costs, wages, taxes, permits and market fundamentals will bring about a price difference of 68 cents per state," he said.

9. energy storage continues to be included in solar energy projects

The report states that over 350 bids (83%) are used for the development and storage of renewable energy.

10. tariffs will hinder the solar market in the United States

According to GTM, the Trump administration's decision to impose tariffs on imported solar cells and components will lead to a 11% decline in the volume of solar PV installed in the US in the next five years. Compared with previous forecasts, solar PV installed capacity will decrease by 7.6GW from 2018 to 2022. Components under construction or hoarding will ease the impact on the 2018 installations, and tariff reductions will have a greater impact on the downstream market in 2019. Large solar business will be more affected than residential solar energy, and will account for 65% of the expected reduction of 7.6GW in the next five years.
