Due to the recent turmoil on foreign exchange market, strong dollar has dragged down overall solar panel prices to decline this week. In China, although the demand seems solid, the attempts to raise the price quotes only have limited success. Such demand improvement is not strong enough for PV developers to accept the price hike that have many solar module makers to suffer with eroded margins. Moreover, due to the RMB depreciation, the slight price improvement in RMB term has been hindered in USD terms. Meanwhile, the strengthened greenback has also suppressed solar panel prices in Japan as Yen weakens. Solar panel prices in EU have plateaued in euro, but reflect a price drop in USD term. On the other hand, the persistent pressure continues to build on the solar panel prices in the US, following the rising speculation of stagnate US demand and the uncertain atmosphere around the Presidential Election. Consequently, overall solar panel prices perform a drop this week.
