SolarPower Europe's annual award-winning Global Market Outlook for Solar Power is the most authoritative market analysis report for the global solar power sector.

The Global Market Outlook for Solar Power is one of the most internationally recognized and respected reports in the industry. On top of winning Best Provision of Industry Information and Intelligence at the 2018 European Association awards, the 2017 report received incredible international success:

  • Downloaded over 15 000 times
  • 3 000 hard copies distributed at the sector's major events

With comprehensive historical market data, five-year forecasts for the main global markets, as well as an analysis of the role that solar is playing in the European energy system, this report is an indispensable tool for the solar industry and energy stakeholders alike. Last year we debuted a new addition to the report, "Trends: what's next for solar" covering trade, storage, digitalisation and corporate sourcing, amongst other topics. In addition, we are delighted to have a contribution from the China Photovoltaic Industry Association on the status of solar power in China, challenges and forecasts.
