2017 is coming to an end. This year’s market condition is much better than the market expectation. Not just the global PV demand reached 100GW for the first time, but also leading manufacturers witnessed significant improvement in shipment. Although half of the global demand came from the Chinese market, demand in the emerging markets grew as well.
Companies saw wider range of shipment distribution, leading to a booming global PV market. On the other hand, product efficiency still reflects an uptrend. Aside from PERC, applications like wet-etching black silicon cells, N-type, Half-Cut, MBB, and overlapped technologies have matured. We can see from the company shipment that the market share of high-efficiency products has increased rapidly in 2H17.
