Beijing on Jan. 23, the United States and Europe dumping cheap solar panels to discredit Chinese manufacturers in the global market, but, according to a report released on Tuesday, China has become the main buyers of PV modules in 2012 the fourth quarter, the Chinese solar market demand accounted for one-third of the total global demand.
Two years ago, the Chinese solar market demand accounted for less than 10% of the total global demand.
Market research firm NPD Solarbuzz analyst Michael Barker (Michael Barker) said in a report, open a new chapter "for the solar industry,
is likely to occupy center stage." China
The report said the decline in solar controller subsidies in
Europe, the introduction of the
new Chinese government policy to stimulate domestic PV demand increased, to
promote the rapid growth of the Chinese market.
Last year, the United States found that the Chinese solar energy enterprises sales of photovoltaic products in the U.S. market at below-cost prices, and thereafter impose tariffs on these enterprises and the EU at the same time launched a fair trade investigations against Chinese solar energy enterprises.
For Suntech, Trina Solar, Yingli, JA Solar and other major Chinese solar cell manufacturers, the booming Chinese market is good news, the products of these enterprises accounted for 80% of the global solar panel production, but they are subject to the impact of the debt burden and excessive expansion, struggling to survive.
Michael Barker said, "China PV Photovoltaic Panels module terminal market preferences different suppliers, pricing and market channels is expected., However, by the threat brought about by the effects of global trade barriers, the biggest challenge faced by the Chinese manufacturer is limited to meet the domestic demand .
American Solar Manufacturing Alliance Federal data analyst said: even if the
year-end sales season is a time when the polycrystalline silicon solar cells
and solar panels, U.S.
fell to the lowest in two years. China
Solar products imported from
from $ 75 million in November to $ 50.5 million in November, less than $ 278
million in November 2011, a fifth. China
Chinese exports of solar panel products to new lows American Solar Manufacturing Alliance said: the decline in imports of Chinese products reflect the market is growing recognition of the risk as well as the cost of imports of Chinese products in the the to levy double reverse tariff of background.
Gordon Brinser, president of SolarWorld American branch: the wave of the Chinese government intervention in the
market is showing signs of regression. But now is not the time to relax. Many
manufacturers are massive layoffs, the financial position of many Western and
Chinese manufacturers worrying. Compared to foreign companies and Chinese
enterprises is different. When they are suffering from the consequences of
illegal trade practices, they can not rely on the government to sustain the
