Light growth: Heavy import penetration to hamper industry revenue growth

Abstract
Solar Panel Manufacturing in the US

The Solar Panel Manufacturing industry has experienced only modest growth over the five years to 2017. The industry has been plagued by high competition from low-cost Asian manufacturers and an appreciating US dollar, while the volatile prices of natural gas and steaming coal have decreased the cost of other forms of energy and shifted demand away from solar energy.

Over the five years to 2022, the industry is expected to continue its modest growth due to increased demand for solar panels and cells. This projected rise in demand is expected to be the result of government programs, including an increase in the number of states with renewable portfolio standards. However, despite increased tariffs, rising imports are expected to account for a significant percentage of the newly generated demand.

Operators in this industry manufacture solar panels and solar cells and supply these products to solar panel installers and downstream residential, commercial and utility customers.

This industry does not include solar cells or solar panels manufactured abroad by US companies.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
