The main information obtained in this work is the analysis developed beyond the database collected. This information may be used in various studies on photovoltaic application, such as market characterization, references for typical values and technologies comparison. This study intends to be a description of the photovoltaic market in 2012. As photovoltaic technology is in development phase, the variables mentioned here may have large variations in the coming years, which justifies the continuation of this work. Some of the adjustments can be done mainly adding new manufacturers, new technologies and other module types, such as the bifacial ones. The main information obtained are related to the technical characteristics of current photovoltaic market, which can be used both for theoretical characterization technique and as a tool for project development.
