Report Number LE 090

U.S. solar panel sales are estimated to have increased by one-third in 2014 after suffering a decline in 2013.  Despite these mixed results, solar panel sales were more than five times the levels seen as recent as 2009.  The surge in demand over the past five years has been primarily satisfied by foreign-sourced products.  Foreign-sourced products are price competitive and have made solar power more competitive in residential and nonresidential markets.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Solar Panels.  This First Look also provides data on product line sales, price trends, exports and imports, end-use market purchases, factors driving demand, and the competitive environment.  Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.
