Turning Lemons into Lemonade: Opportunities in the Turbulent Photovoltaic Equipment Market

September 29, 2012 | State of the Market Report

The existing overcapacity in the PV market has resulted in low capacity utilization and frozen plans for capacity expansion. However, x-Si, CIGS, and CdTe cell and module manufacturers are turning to core product differentiation to revamp margins – leaving an opportunity for PV equipment manufacturers, by way of reducing production costs and improving module efficiencies. Furthermore, equipment manufacturers must adjust as new active semiconductor materials – such as epitaxial Si, CZTS, and GaAs – make their push into the PV market.
