News Release

 

Easy-to-Install Designs Drive North American PV Mounting Systems Market to exceed U.S. $1.5B in 2018, According to Wolf Research

 

Innovative and durable designs that reduce part counts and speed installation time of PV systems are key differentiators for growing market share

 

Miami, Florida, December 5, 2013 –The North American PV Mounting Systems market is poised to grow 67% between 2013 and 2018 to account for more than $1.5 billion (U.S.), according to the Wolf Research North American PV Mounting Systems Report. This market value growth will be strongest in the roof-top segment. The compound annual growth rate 2013-2018 for the flat roof-mount market value (primarily commercial buildings) will be 17.5%. For the pitched roof-mount market value, the CAGR is expected to be an almost equally impressive 16.1%. Ground-mount, the dominant segment in 2013, will experience slower growth during the next five years as utility-scale solar energy projects slow down, but is expected to still account for 37% of the revenue opportunity in 2018.

 

The top three market share leaders for North American PV Mounting Systems during the first half of 2013 were Schletter, Unirac and IronRidge in terms of MW equivalent mounting systems installed. Schletter was also the clear leader in ground-mount systems; Zep Solar was the leader in pitched-roof installations. The leader in flat-roof installations was IronRidge.

 

Significant market share shift for established as well as emerging competitors underscored the need for continued innovation and controlling manufacturing costs. The healthy PV market in North America is attracting new competitors from overseas and domestic start-ups alike, resulting in increasing price competition and investment in new production, as well as accelerating product innovation and differentiation.

 

“The need to speed up installations and reduce total PV system cost is critical for market growth," said Wolfgang Schlichting, Executive Research Director at Wolf Research and lead author of the North American PV Mounting Systems Report. “Mounting systems vendors address this need with simpler, more integrated designs of their still durable solutions.”

 

The lead author of this comprehensive, 100-page North American PV Mounting Systems Report is Wolfgang Schlichting, an experienced downstream PV market analyst and Executive Research Director at Wolf Research. Contributing authors for this study include these industry veterans:

 

Barrett Silver, VP of Sales & Marketing for Sun Ray Install, LLC, an East Coast based solar ground mount installation company.  Barrett was most recently the Director of Business Development, Northeast, at Unirac and Director of East Coast Accounts at SunLink.

 

Bryan Conklin, President & Marketing Consultant at Resurgent Solutions. Previously Bryan was Senior Director of Marketing at Mainstream Energy/REC Solar and Director of Marketing - North America at BP Solar.
