DUBLIN, February 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Megawatt-Scale PV Plant Operations and Maintenance: Services, Markets and Competitors 2013-2017" report to their offering. 

     (Logo: )

PV Operations and Maintenance (O&M), the set of technical activities that enable power plants to produce energy in compliance with investor expectations and applicable regulations, is a market that will triple its current size by 2017. Europe currently leads the space, but Asia-Pacific markets will drive installations over the next four years, bringing the worldwide total to 146GW. 

The competitive landscape of the PV O&M market is country specific, with different firms leading in each of the top solar markets. While the United States ranks sixth in terms of current megawatt-scale installations, the top three providers (First Solar, SunEdison, and SunPower) all primarily service the United States. Beyond the fast growth of the utility-scale PV industry in North America, this illustrates that the O&M market is more concentrated in the U.S., while it appears highly fragmented in European markets such as Germany and Italy. 

Price and service tend to also vary across geographies, with variations as high as 100% between low-price markets like the U.S. and high-price markets like Italy.
