For each company, Yole Développement details its technologies, key contacts, fab identity & locations, business model and the evolution of the production capacity from 2008 to 2013.

Main new features of 2012 edition  In the 2012 edition of its PV Fab database, Yole Développement takes into account the evolution of the PV market and updates its list of key players.

Moreover, Yole Développement added quasi-monocrystalline (“monolike”) silicon players and flexible cells & modules.
