PVinsights: Solar plunge exposes a fundamental weakness

Alternative Energy - Thu, 11/16/2017 - 08:56
Global solar panel prices were on track of a downtrend given that global demand strength in 4Q17 are below previous estimation. With Chinese government's 2017 solar target secure, the demand in China showed signs of slowing since 2H17 after Beijing dialed back stimulus efforts of FIT subsidy and closed installation for this year's top runner projects around end of September. Mono-PERC module prices suffered from depressed demand amid higher selling prices, particularly in EU, Japan, and China, forcing module buyers shift procurement toward multi-crystalline products. While the outcome on Section 201 are expected to soon be determined by President Trump, module prices in the US held steady as buyers awaiting for clear market signals. In India, panel prices dropped as domestic manufacturers escalated price competition as domestic suppliers seek to compete with Chinese rivals.
