PVinsights: Solar tumbles into a bear market

Solar panel prices move notably lower this week, extending the downward trend over the past few weeks. Record capacity expansion, historical low bidding prices and an oversupply situation are intensifying a worldwide competition, which in turn are fueling solar panel price drop. In the US, competition among major module suppliers is getting even more intense as major suppliers strive to secure more orders as to maintain high utilization rates and market shares. Other major solar markets also suffer from similar pattern. In China, even as the demand is relatively solid, solar panel prices are dragged down by depreciation of RMB as well as strategic pricing in efforts to win project tenders. As for India, solar panel prices slump as following the downtrend of the rest of the world regardless of its solid demand growth.
