Solar photovoltaic is emerging as a major power source due to its numerous environmental and economic benefits. Installations of PV cells and modules around the world have been growing since 1998 and recorded a tremendous growth till 2009. The annual market has developed from less than 1 GW in 2003 to more than 7.2 GW in 2009 in spite of the difficult financial and economic circumstances. After a 160% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) growth from 2007 to 2008, the PV market in 2009 continued to grow another 15% in 2009.
There has been a continuous development of PV in established markets (like Germany, US and Japan), an exceptionally good growth in Spain and the emergence of new markets, such as France, the Czech Republic, Portugal and Belgium. ” market research reports ”

Over the last 5 years, China has emerged as the largest producer of solar cells in the world.

The solar PV manufacturing base in India comprises primarily of cell and module manufacturing; with the bulk of the value addition-taking place outside the country. The capacity in India is currently estimated in excess of about 400 MW for cells and about 1,000 MW for modules. The capacity of PV cells and modules in India is estimated to cross 750 MW and 1250 MW by the end of year 2010.
