    GLOBAL SOLAR SUPPLY-DEMAND BALANCING AT LOWER PRICES

    Solar PV Industry to Transition to Supply-Driven Market in 2014…Solar PV costs and prices have fallen dramatically, leading to a more balanced supply-demand picture

    "Over the past three years, solar photovoltaic (PV) installed system prices, module prices, and module production costs have all fallen by more than 50%, while a shakeout of uncompetitive PV cell manufacturers has caused the number of suppliers to decline from 250 in 2010 to 150 in 2013…[As a result] PV demand will continue to grow and the solar industry will shift from a demand-constrained market into a classic supply-driven market in 2014…The demand-constrained environment of the past few years was a catalyst behind the industry’s over-capacity and over-supply problems that hindered capacity utilization rates, and resulted in capital expenditure declining to an eight-year low in 2013. Demand during 2013 was driven primarily by the booming Asian market, led by China and Japan, which are the top two markets globally.
