From NRG Energy to ReneSola - Technavio Announces Top Ten Vendors in the Residential Solar Market in the US from 2016 to 2020

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top ten leading vendors in their recent residential solar market in the US report. The vendors are identified, taking into account their revenue, technology, geographical presence, and end-users.

Competitive vendor landscape

The residential solar market in the US is diversified with the presence of international and regional vendors. The competitive environment in the market is likely to intensify during the forecast period with an increase in product extensions, technological innovations, and strategic M&A. “Prominent vendors in the market frequently pursue M&A and sales and distribution tie-ups in emerging markets to expand their market presence and increase their market share. These vendors believe that the residential market will be the fastest growing market considering its huge untapped potential,” says Anju Ajaykumar, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on power.

Until 2014, only 0.6% of the 82 million single family rooftops was deployed with Solar PV. Vivant Solar believes that by 2017, 37.5 million of the 82 million single family rooftop can be installed. Top vendors such as Solar City and Vivint Solar have retained their market status since 2013.
