Solar energy product demand in China will grow 16.6 percent annually through 2013. Solar thermal collectors will remain the dominant type while photovoltaic modules grow the fastest from a small base. Central-East China will continue as the largest regional market while the Northwest and Southwest lead gains.
This study analyzes the 23.4 billion yuan solar energy product industry in China. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by product type (photovoltaic modules, solar thermal collectors), application (e.g., electric power generation, water heating, communications) and region (e.g., Northeast, Central-East).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry participants, including Himin Solar Energy Group, Shandong Sangle Solar Energy and Linuo Group.
