PVinsights: Solar price slumps as competition heats up

Global solar panel prices decline for consecutive weeks, weigh down by growing glut and intense competition amid concern China demand is losing momentum. In China, solar panel remain depressed as Chinese module makers who suffer from frozen domestic demand are strive to win limited solar projects by offer record low prices. Moreover, 2nd tier Chinese module makers, who are imposed with high punitive tariffs to enter EU and US markets, find India, Japan and other emerging countries where no trade barrier enforced to digest their swelled inventory levels, leading solar panel prices in these regions continue to tumble. Meanwhile, 1st tier Chinese module makers with increased capacities in SEA that could circumvent trade barriers target the EU and US markets to compensate the worse-than-anticipated sales in China.
