Mainland Exports Of US Photovoltaic Products Channel Closed Mexico's New Latin America Photovoltaic Power Generation Market Highlights

In the 2018 China PV Industry Annual Conference and Smart Energy Innovation Forum, Wang Guiqing, the vice president of the Chamber of Mechanical and Electrical Products Import and Export and the executive director of the Solar Photovoltaic Products Branch, shared the latest developments in the international photovoltaic industry. 

He explained the current trend of the new energy market with 11 charts. It is estimated that this year, the total amount of PV modules exported to the overseas mainland will be about 40GW, and the overseas capacity of domestic component companies will be about 10GW. The proportion of high-efficiency component exports is gradually increasing. At the same time, India, the United States, the European Union and Japan have large capacity gaps. Due to the substantial impact of Sino-US trade friction, the channel for exporting photovoltaic products from the mainland of China to the United States will likely be closed in the future, and enterprises will face more challenges. The local installed capacity is now at the bottom.

In the first nine months of this year, the output of polycrystalline was 178,400 tons, an increase of 4.94%. The module output was 54.9GW, a year-on-year increase of 3.58%. The total exports in the first nine months were approximately $13.142 billion, an increase of nearly 30% year-on-year. The increase in exports is much larger than the scale of production. 

As far as the photovoltaic industry is concerned, the current foreign trade status shows an advantage. 

From 2013 to now, the average export price of components has dropped by as much as 44% in five years. 

2018 In the first nine months of the export component power, 315W to 335W photovoltaic module export power accounted for the largest proportion, up to 46.2%, followed by 335W or more, 275W to 295W component products. 

At present, India's local production gap is 6.9GW, while the US is 8.7GW, and the EU is up to 12.1GW. In addition, China's component production capacity in 2001 is 110 GW, with a production of 74 GW, and the installed capacity is expected to be around 45 GW. 

The cancellation of the double-counter policy in the EU has had a positive impact on the recovery of the photovoltaic industry across the EU market. 


The United States is different. Because of the trade friction, the current door to the United States from the mainland will be hindered, and the installed capacity will drop sharply. 

The Indian region has also been affected by trade frictions, and the number of exports has fallen sharply this year.
