NEW YORK, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The German Solar Photovoltaic Market: A New Era Of Competition Dawns

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0172467/The-German-Solar-Photovoltaic-Market-A-New-Era-Of-Competition-Dawns.html

Although Germany's geographical position on the world map does not make it an ideal location for solar energy due to it receiving only moderate levels of solar radiation, it ranks second place in the photovoltaic (PV) market, generating about one quarter of the total world market.

While PV generating capacity is set to increase, there is some uncertainty regarding the pace of growth in Germany given the current economic crisis. What is clear, however, is that the recent expansion of capacity at all stages in the German PV value chain is resulting in an increase in the availability of modules. Consequently, the industry is observing a significant reduction in prices and a shift from a seller's market to a buyer's market.

While PV generating capacity is set to increase, there is some uncertainty regarding the pace of growth in Germany given the current economic crisis. What is clear, however, is that the recent expansion of capacity at all stages in the German PV value chain is resulting in an increase in the availability of modules. Consequently, the industry is observing a significant reduction in prices and a shift from a seller's market to a buyer's market.

The strength of this report therefore lies in the analysis of German PV value chain, providing detailed company specific information on manufacturers of silicon, wafers, cells, modules, Poly-Si, a-Si, CIS, CIGS, CdTe and CPV-based photovoltaic technologies. It shows how recent economic changes and political support for the solar PV market is resulting in a new era of competition heading toward grid parity.
