The global photovoltaics market is booming The International Energy Agency (IEA) has identified an increase of around 115 gigawatts of capacity in 2019, a rise of more than 17 percent compared to 2018, while China, the largest photovoltaics market in the world, saw a slight decline. However, this weakness was more than compensated for by stronger growth in the EU countries, above all Spain. The IEA also highlights Vietnam, India, the USA and Japan as important markets for photovoltaics.
