Tier-One Solar Technology Tracker: Ranking the Crystalline-Silicon Leaders for 2016

June 9, 2016 | State of the Market Report

Tier-one manufacturers are slow-moving behemoths that dominate the photovoltaic market: They both set the stage for innovation and are susceptible to disruption. We look at the current market positions of the leading eight tier-one manufacturers and examine their momentum for technology innovation. Manufacturers are moving to offer comparable modules as well as supporting products, but are diverging in their approaches to developing novel cell architectures. In this new methodology, these leading manufacturers mostly fall into the camp of either innovation laggards or supporters, while one clearly leads the pack.
