PV Operations and Maintenance (O&M) and Asset Management (AM) are technical, administrative and financial activities essential to the performance of a PV power plant as a financial asset. The global market for megawatt-scale O&M will surpass 88 GW by the end of 2014, and is expected to almost triple by 2018, driven predominantly by China, the U.S. and Japan.

The competitive landscape of the PV O&M market is country specific, with different firms leading in each of the top solar markets. Price and service tend to also vary across geographies, with variations as high as 100% between low-price markets like the U.S. and higher-price markets like Italy. The report segments vendors into five categories and maps out the competitive landscape globally and by country.
