A solar simulator is an instrument that provides illumination approximating sunlight. Solar simulators are used to provide a controllable indoor test facility under laboratory conditions, used for the testing of solar cells, material degradation simulations, weathering tests for coatings, sunblock evaluations, and studying plant growth. Solar simulators are also used on terrestrial, aerospace, and satellite products as a long-term simulated sunlight exposure system to test optical coatings, thermal control coatings, paints, etc. ______ 1. Micromarkets are defined as the further segments and subsegments of the solar simulator market included in the report. 2. Core competencies of companies are defined in terms of their key developments and key strategies adopted by them to sustain their position in the market.
