While third-party outsourcing of solar PV module assembly has been a constant feature of the PV industry for many years, the landscape of suppliers and the country of manufacturing has changed radically in the past two years, and will continue to do so out to the end of 2018.
This article shows clearly how third-party module supply by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) has moved firmly to Thailand and Vietnam, with continued market-share gains expected from these countries going forward.
We explain why these changes have occurred and what the implications of this shift are expected to be.
The analysis is taken from the January 2017 release of our PV Manufacturing & Technology Quarterly report. The themes are set to be discussed at the forthcoming PV CellTech 2017 event in Penang, Malaysia, 14-15 March 2017.
