Going even further, it notes that “the 2011 cell output was the PV industry’s lowest growth rate since a 34-percent increase in 2003.” Other findings include: Asian companies continue to dominate the sector, with 6 of the top 10 producers coming out of China and 2 out of Taiwan. The top solar cell producer for the 2nd year in a row was Suntech Power. This is the first year that there wasn’t a European or Japanese company in the top 10. The remaining two solar cell producers are from the U.S., First Solar an...
