Worldwide solar market
Do you know that?
The global photovoltaic market was multiplied by 100 in little more than 10 years.
This huge growth came with a 90% fall of the electricity cost generated by solar farms.
Solar photovoltaics is Nr.1 of the utility sector in terms of new worldwide installed capacities per year, far bigger than wind, gas and coal.
In most countries, solar has become the cheapest source of electricity with record low prices around USD 2 ct./kWh.

= 4% of global electricity production in 2021
The International Energy Agency forecasts that photovoltaics will generate 14% of the world electricity in 2030 in the “Sustainable Development Scenario” that sees solar becoming the first source of power with 25% of global production in 2040. In the “Net Zero Emissions by 2050” scenario, solar already reaches 18% in 2030 with 4’000 GW of global capacity.
