FRANKFURT (Reuters) - SMA Solar, the world's biggest maker of solar inverters, stuck to its 2010 outlook as strong demand in Germany led the company to post higher-than-expected second-quarter sales.

A buoyant German market has helped industry players around the world -- including SunPower, LDK, Phoenix Solar and SolarWorld -- to post strong second-quarter results, with some even raising their outlooks.

However, SMA said on Friday second-quarter earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) and net profit reached 128 million euros ($164.1 million) and 92 million, respectively, slightly missing analyst expectations.
