Global Solar buyers gather in Korea in September, 2013
Tuesday, Jun 11, 2013SEOUL, South Korea, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EXPO Solar 2013 (www.exposolar.org), Asia's leading photovoltaic exhibition, takes place in KINTEX, Gyeonggi, Korea, for 3 days from September 4~6. This year's event will feature 300 PV companies from 20 countries.
Widely recognized as the gateway to the Asian market for PV companies around the world, EXPO Solar 2013 is drawing attention with 3 interesting themes: "Rising Asia and Declining Europe", "Center of Gravity of PV Industry Moving from Manufacturing to Power Generation and Installation", and "Change in PV Purchase and Demand Pattern".
As the global PV market is shifting from Europe to Asia due to the slowdown in Europe and the shifting focus of the market from cell/module manufacturing to PV power generation and installation, purchase and demand for PV power systems are expected to be strong in the second half of this year. Considering these trends, EXPO Solar 2013, taking place this September, is expected to stimulate the industry as it provides an important forum for exchanging ideas, discussions over PV purchase and practical buyer meetings centered around end users.
As Europe and the US started to impose anti-dumping duties on imported Chinese PV modules, Korean PV modules are gaining popularity in the international PV market. Growing interest in Korean PV modules is expected to bring in a large number of global PV buyers to Korea. In line with this trend in the market, the EXPO Solar 2013 organizer is operating a special buyer invitation program to attract qualified overseas buyers (www.exposolar.org/2013/invitation).
Held concurrently, PV World Forum 2013 will feature about 30 world-class PV speakers from 7 countries including Japan, the US and Germany, and examine trends in PV technology in countries around the world, growth potential in PV market and new approaches to PV business in 2014.
