Renewable Energy Market

Renewable energy installations are making significant contributions to the global energy supply. The global renewable energy market grew by 8% in 2011. Globally, wind and solar PV accounted for almost 40% and 30% of new renewable capacity, respectively. By the end of 2011, operating renewable capacity comprised more than 25% of total global power generating capacity and supplied an estimated 20.3% of global electricity.

Renewable energy demand has generated a series of new connectors that address the unique performance and environmental resistance required by equipment related to solar panel arrays and wind turbine farms. Prolonged exposure to extreme weather conditions, as well as UV, and salt spray requires extensive sealing mechanisms to insure reliable service over many years. These requirements are also being fulfilled by many of the standard connectors in the market today.

While a market slowdown is expected in 2012, the long-term outlook for wind and solar energy remains promising for connector manufacturers. Although the development of new technologies and new sources of energy is always an issue to take into account when investing in specific markets, it looks like a safe bet that markets for wind and solar energy generation will continue to grow over the next decade.
