|The Global PV Inverter and MLPE Landscape: H1 2018 - Prices, Forecasts, Market Shares and Vendor Profiles|
|Published: July 31, 2018||Content info:||
The global inverter market continues to concentrate. The top-20 vendors accounted for 93% of shipments in 2017, the highest since GTM began to keep track in 2010. Three-phase string inverter shipments grew 59% year-over-year and exceeded central inverter shipments by nearly 7 gigawatts. However, inverter shipments will fall 22% in 2018 due to the Chinese market downturn.
Inverter prices show no sign of stabilizing, current technology trends have not exhausted their cost-reduction potential, and many markets are still extremely fragmented.
This report provides detailed, country-specific pricing and forecasts for microinverters, single-phase string inverters, three-phase string inverters, central inverters and DC optimizers. The report also profiles and provides current and historical shipment totals for 23 of the world's largest inverter suppliers.
