The photovoltaics industry and markets have been growing at a very high rate in the last few years. Shipments grew by an extraordinary 56% in 2007, and the five-year compound annual growth rate for the industry from 2002 to 2007 has been 44% with the industry capacity increasing by 69% in 2007. ? In this presentation the current status of photovoltaic technology and markets will be discussed. Benchmarking with the semiconductor (integrated circuit) industry will be discussed to determine what aspects of semiconductor technology and manufacturing practices could be profitably copied by the photovoltaic industry. ? Future directions of the technology, with specific focus on silicon? based products and the challenges and opportunities in scale manufacture, efficiency enhancements and cost reductions will be discussed.
