Summary / Abstract: The objective of this paper is to propose a reliable and accurate perspective on key markets and policies related to PV development in 2019 and previously. It aims at offering a clear analysis of how PV markets have developed in 2019, with updated numbers, along with analysis of the policies behind the development. In this paper are displayed and analyzed survey results for the calendar year 2019 concerning PV markets and policies, as well as other key issues. An increasing number of national markets experienced notable growth in 2019 with impacts on policy development. Figures show that close to 115 GW of PV systems have been installed in the world last year. Consequently, cumulative capacity crossed the 600 GW mark in 2019.
