Strategic Study | PV Market in Distributed Generation 1st Semester/2018

 In Market Research, Uncategorized

The study provides a realistic understanding about the Brazilian DG Solar Market and were based on representative sample of 552 integration companies from all over the country, different sizes and experiences.

The Highlights


The research shows the companies performance in 2017, the main solar sector challenges  and the expectations for the next years.

DG Market

The DG Photovoltaic Market grown quickly in the second semester of 2017, providing a excellent result if compared with 1 year ago. At the same time, new challenges are coming , the market is more fragmented, opening space to new or regional suppliers. The graphic below shows the DG Market development between 2012 and 2017.

Evolution of DG Market – Cumulative Capacity Additions

It is possible to realize that the DG accumulated imports overcome the 530 MWp between 2012 and 2017. In addiction, the net sales overcomes the 297 MWp in 2017. The total cumulative imported PV modules reached 530 MWp and the sales overcomed 297 MWp in 2017.


Products and Services

The DG Photovoltaic Market Study also determined the market reach of the distributors, module manufacturers, inverters brands and mounting systems manufacturers indicating the penetrability of the brands in the sector.

% of Integrators that uses each Inverter Brand


The price of photovoltaic systems  continues to fall for the end customer, but it is clear that the rate of change has decreased. The last 6 months have shown that further price decreases were only possible due to a significant reduction in Integration Costs.

As the prices of solar modules have increased, solar integrators have absorbed this increase in order to cushion the impact for the end consumer, compressing their net margins in the process, and have tried to compensate for this by improving their operating efficiency.
