Furthermore, the availability of solar radiation across the U.S. has assisted in the market growth over the past five years. Module prices for solar PV have declined over the past few years owing to the presence of various federal subsidies and rise in module installations. Furthermore, raw material prices for manufacturing solar cells have also declined sharply owing to various technological and manufacturing improvements. Supportive regulations involving federal subsidy and various state incentives are expected to augment market growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, technological advancements in solar PV module manufacturing coupled with declining raw material prices are expected to be key market drivers."
