Large format wafers, cells, and modules have received heated discussions among the industry since 2019. By the end of 2021, large format cells and modules will see production capacity cumulating to 280 GW and 270 GW, respectively. As technologies matured across the industrial chain, large format wafers saw outstanding performances in cost reductions, with production cost of the entire industrial chain being able to drop by approximately RMB 0.07-0.09/W. Meanwhile, industrial concentration of each sector propelled leading manufacturers to form alliances. Transition towards larger formats is inexorable. Large format products will secure more than 50% of market share for the first time in the second half of 2021 and will continue to grow.

The trend for larger formats saw waves of PERC production capacity expansions this year. With massive expansions and lower production costs, PERC will remain mainstream technology for the coming three to five years. However, as PERC sees cost reductions lose momentum, no conclusion has been made for whether TOPCon or HJT technology can take over the place. The industry is still abuzz with yield rates and production costs of the two technologies. In the webinar this year, we will look into primary n-type cell technologies, updates and future development trends.

As for modules, discussions on string welding technologies centered around shingling, tiling, paving, and narrowed-spacing assembly over the past two years. Subject to production costs and yield rates, the application of narrowed-spacing with ribbon flattening technology or special-shaped ribbon technology is still the mainstream by far. In this webinar, we will talk about product layouts of major module makers, comparisons and contrasts between 182mm and 210mm modules, and forecast for future market share of bifacial modules.
