  • While Longi maintains its no. 1 rank, Trina has switched over areas at No 2 with Jinko Solar, now at no. 4.
  • The study shows the challenge prior to smaller sized module manufacturers, in a sector that is increasingly combined, with the leading 10 bookkeeping for a 90% share worldwide.

An analysis by PV InfoLink, a Taiwan based global photovoltaic or pv analysis company, the global module shipment position for 2021 is out. Topline results suggest that Canadian Solar( 5 ), Q Cells (9) as well as First Solar( 7) are the only non-Chinese companies in the top 10.

The current position is based on PV InfoLink's supply as well as demand data source. In terms of module size, PV InfoLink estimates that the shipments of large modules by the leading 10 producers (excluding Very first Solar) have to do with 160GW or more, accounting for regarding 90% amongst complete shipments by the top 10 in 2021, in which shipments in the 2nd fifty percent of the year were double those of the first half of the year. Large modules have become by far one of the most prominent. The firm asserts that the void between Longi and also 2nd put Trina mored than 10 GW.

The worldwide PV sector expanded by jumps as well as bounds last year, PV-Tech said, with both overall capacity as well as shipments exceeding 190GW. The numbers followed a projection for 2021 that PV-Tech made at the end of 2020. The shipments section of the rankings projection was based generally on the constant tracking for each and every module maker's annual production capacity and also shipments. Ranking of module providers' shipments in 2021:

According to publicly available data, no. 2 player Trina Solar's total organized module capacity last year got to 50GW, of which 210mm silicon wafer-based modules represented greater than 70%. Trina Solar shipped more than 16GW of 210mm modules, ranking first among all makers of large modules. Cumulative shipments of 210mm modules globally exceeded 25GW.

Ultra high-power modules have actually been released in solar projects worldwide, including in many GW- as well as 100 MW-grade projects. At the same time, there is expanding demand in the international PV market for 210mm modules, as well as this is anticipated to drive further rises in the capacity as well as shipments of the high-power modules.

Large modules began to predominate in 2021, with 210mm modules firmly taking the lead. According to the current report from the market knowledge carrier TrendForce, the capacity of large-size modules is expected to reach 349.9 GW this year, regulating a consolidated market share of 74.6%. The capacity of 210mm modules alone is anticipated to get to 206.8 GW, making up 44.1%.
