The "Global Market Outlook for Photovoltaics 2014-2018" includes PV market figures for 2013 and makes forecasts for the next five years for global and European markets. The PV market has grown over the past decade at a remarkable rate - even during dificult economic times - and is becoming a major source of power generation for the world.
2013 was another record year for PV installations with at least 38.4 GW of newly-added capacity around the globe and 11 GW in Europe. The most important fact from 2013 is a rapid develpment of PV in Asia combined with a sharp drop of installations in Europe.
