In 2020, the photovoltaic industry has achieved remarkable results. The output of photovoltaic modules for 14 consecutive years, the output of polysilicon for 10 consecutive years, the new installed capacity of photovoltaics for 8 consecutive years, and the cumulative installed capacity of photovoltaics ranks first in the world for 6 consecutive years. In the view of Mr. Wang Bohua, vice chairman and secretary-general of the China Photovoltaic Industry Association, it is precisely because of the recovery growth of the Chinese photovoltaic market that the global photovoltaic market has maintained its growth momentum.
Statistics from the China Photovoltaic Industry Association show that in 2020, new global photovoltaic installations will increase by about 13% year-on-year. Affected by the epidemic and price factors, China's exports of photovoltaic products in 2020 will fall by 5% year-on-year to 19.75 billion US dollars. Despite the decline in export value, the export volume of modules was about 78.8GW, an increase of 18% year-on-year, and the export volume of silicon wafers and batteries was basically the same as in 2019. "The proportion of my country's module export volume in output remains high, which fully reflects the growing demand for photovoltaic power generation in overseas markets." Mr. Wang said.
International data show that the Netherlands is still the country's first exporter of photovoltaic modules, and most traditional international markets remain vigorous. However, some markets such as India, Mexico, and Ukraine have been affected by the epidemic, and the imports of photovoltaic modules have declined, benefiting from the opening of bids for many large power stations Chile, which is driving market demand, has entered the top ten exporting countries of photovoltaic modules in my country.
In terms of imports, the import volume of polysilicon in 2020 is about 99,000 tons, down 30% year-on-year. During the "13th Five-Year Plan" period, the proportion of polysilicon imports continued to decline. Mr. Ma Haitian, Deputy Secretary-General of the Silicon Industry Branch of the China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association, pointed out in the report that the current global share of my country’s polysilicon industry has increased from 68.6% in 2019 to 75.2%. Due to some unexpected factors in 2020, Domestic supply has seen relatively large fluctuations, overseas imports have also shown a gradual decrease, and market supply is in the process of continuous optimization.
