PV demand in the US market could be reduced by up to 29 GW from 2018 to 2021 if new trade tariffs are implemented on PV cells and modules as a result of the Section 201 petition proposed by Suniva and SolarWorld Americas. IHS Markit has modeled the impact of various PV module price increases ($0.10/W, $0.20/W, $0.30/W, and $0.40/W) on PV deployment in the US market, based on the relative change in attractiveness within each state market compared to the reference case (No Tariff) scenario. The reference case scenario is based on the Q2 2017 edition of IHS Markit Technology’s North America Solar Market Tracker, published in June.
