The British market research and consultancy firm IMS Research has identified high earning potential in the field of monitoring in the photovoltaic sector – with skytron® energy among those companies at the very forefront.
A study published in late Febraury 2012 entitled "The World Market for PV Balance of System Equipment" did foresee a short-term dip in turnover due to international pricing pressure, but predicted significant growth over the next four years, with returns of17 billion US dollars in 2011 rising to 24 billion dollars in 2016. Monitoring systems are described by the study as one of the fastest growing sectors in the international photovoltaic industry. Alongside PV module and inverter technology, monitoring is due to account for the third largest market segment.
IMS Research also sees the PV field sensor sector as a particularly important growth area. What will prove to be of increasing interest to PV power plant operators and investors is the leveling off of high PV module costs made possible by the installation of effective monitoring systems.??With a market share of 12.1%, skytron® energy is ranked first in the international market for monitoring of large-scale PV power plants. The Berlin-based company is also the second largest producer of solar combiner boxes. skytron® energy is thus one of the top 3 monitoring companies worldwide. As a result of the high potential for innovation in the sector, the market research institute foresees a guarantee of solid price stability for monitoring systems in the future.
