Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Growth Opportunities in Global Solar Photovoltaics Wafer Market 2012-2017: Trends, Forecasts and Opportunity Analysis" report to their offering.
The booming solar energy industry has been a key driver for the global solar PV wafer market. The market experienced exponential growth during 2006-2011; however, it is forecast to witness modest growth over 2012-2017 and reach $16,263 million by 2017.
This report studies the global solar PV wafer market with an in-depth analysis of all four regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World. In the global solar PV wafer market during 2006-2011, Europe dominated, in terms of both value and volume, followed by the APAC market. Strong growth factors such as clean energy agendas and high electricity prices are expected to maintain Europe as the global leader by volume and value over 2012-2017, followed by APAC.
