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

American PV Mounting Systems Report is Wolfgang Schlichting, an experienced
downstream PV market analyst and Executive Research Director at Wolf Research.
