Australian Solar Panel Market Share - SunWiz lifts the lid [Charts ahoy!]
What’s the most popular solar panel brand in Australia? How much volume is each brand moving?
These are burning questions for Australia’s solar industry. Here are a few reasons why:
- Panel manufacturers need to keep an eye on their competitors - and understand which brands (if any) that they’re losing market share to.
- Wholesalers want to know if they’re the top provider of a particular panel brand - or whether they should be offering other ‘rising stars’
- Solar retailers would love to know what panels are the most popular - so they can offer them to customers
Even though this kind of solar market data is in high demand, it’s not easy to get, make sense of, or put to good use.
When you do look for data, what you’ll find is charts like the one below. It shows the volume of ‘tier 1’ vs ‘tier 2’ panels installed in Australia over the course of several years.
It shows an interesting and relevant trend - an increasing percentage of the panels sold in Australia are classed as tier 1.
But in addition to being outdated, it doesn't identify which brands are winning.
Here’s a fun fact about SunWiz: We already track each and every solar power system installed in Australia - over two bloody million of them!
What’s more, we can instantly produce data on the system size, where & when it was installed, and (often) who sold it.
All of this info is in our flagship Insights reporting service.
The missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle has always been panel brand - until now!
