Global PV inverter shipments grew 42% in 2015 to 59.7 GW, up from 42.1 GW in 2014. Shipment growth will be flat in 2016, as the Chinese and Japanese markets level off and the U.S. market works through a build-up of shipments from 2015, but the market will regain steam and grow 11% per year from 2016 to 2020. Overall, shifting global demand, rapidly evolving product preferences and competitive pricing will be key themes moving forward for the dynamic PV inverter industry.

Driven by the emergence of a strong set of regionally diverse country markets in the last two years, the global PV supply chain overcame the stress of overcapacity, now benefiting from a healthy supply-demand market. Though supply-demand stability and input cost reduction are expected to continue in 2015, the continually evolving regional tariff landscape will pose price risks.

Polysilicon is the primary feedstock used for the production of crystalline silicon PV, which constituted 90 percent of global PV module production in 2013. In recent years, rapid growth of the PV market has led to the emergence of a dedicated solar polysilicon supply chain, and the solar industry now dominates global polysilicon consumption (estimated 90% in 2014). After enduring a sustained period of severe overcapacity in 2011-2013, pricing rebounded strongly in 2014, and renewed confidence in strong end-market growth in 2014-2016 has prompted the re-start of many previously shuttered plants and the resumption of capacity addition plans in 2015.

Microinverters and DC optimizers (collectively known as module-level power electronics, or MLPE) comprise one of the newest and fastest-growing sectors in the solar industry. The product segment surpassed 1 GW of annual volume and over 2 GW of cumulative installed capacity in 2013, just four years after the first contemporary products entered the market. While initially considered a niche solution for residential or shaded rooftops, the category has consistently expanded its appeal, to the point where nearly half of the MLPE category’s volume is in the commercial-scale market, particularly for DC optimizers. The module-level electronics providers have done this by evolving their value proposition while simultaneously reducing product costs.
