Zion Research has published a new report titled “Solar Photovoltaic (PV) (CPV, Hybrid, and Other systems) Market for Residential, Non-residential and Utility Applications: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis and Forecast, 2014 – 2020”. According to the report, the global solar PV market was valued at approximately USD 108.3 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach approximately USD 148.5 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of around 10% between 2015 and 2020. In terms of volume, global solar PV market stood at 33.3 gigawatts in 2014.

Solar photovoltaic (PV) cells generate electricity directly from sunlight. Solar photovoltaic is commonly known as the solar cell. PV is building block in the power or energy system. Solar PV is a type of photoelectric cell which on exposure to light can produce an electric current without any external voltage source. Different types of solar cells are available such as the cadmium telluride solar cell, hybrid solar cell, dye-sensitized solar cell, plastic solar cell, thin film solar cell and polymer solar cell among others. The simplest PV systems can be used to power many of the wrist watches, outdoor lights, small calculators etc.
