Industrial Organization Analysis on Solar PV Industry (Solar Photovoltaic)
This article discusses the correlation between market structure and value GetCapabilities of major procedures of the PV industry, from the results we can find: As the number of enterprises involved in four procedures of the industrial chain increases, the degree of monopoly of market structure in all procedures are becoming more and more weaker, increasing the level of competition, which resulting in decreasing order of the corresponding distribution of profits, demonstrated as a "inverted pyramid" structure. Market structure of value chain in every procedure determines its ability to obtain the profits. That the industrial organization of PV industry can be explained by the SCP paradigm of Harvard School.
