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.

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.
