Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
The still immature Solar Power Generation industry has been developing rapidly. Industry revenue has been rising at an annualized rate of 195.8% over the five years through 2013 to total $1.6 billion.
Rising household demand for electricity in China has led to several power supply shortages over the past few years, which has stimulated demand for solar power generation. In addition, a reliance on imported oil and gas resources for power and increasing environmental consciousness have led to a strong government focus on the development of renewable energy, especially solar power. In the twelfth five-year planning period (2011 to 2015), the State Energy Administration aims to take the installed capacity of solar power generation from 860 megawatts to 21 gigawatts.... purchase to read more
Industry Report - Industry SWOT Analysis Chapter
In the ten years to 2018, industry value-added for the Solar Power Generation industry is estimated to grow much faster than China's GDP, indicating a growing life cycle stage.
Technology changes are frequent in this industry and are focused on power generation efficiency and project expansion. Hence, improvements in technology and systems will elevate the industry in the near future.
Solar power resources are scattered across the country, and a complete well-developed electricity distribution network is essential for maximizing usage of solar power. However, the Electricity Transmission and Distribution industry in China is still in the early phase of its development (IBISWorld industry report 4420)... purchase to read more
