We bring to you profiles of a few of the many China-based firms that dominate the solar sector today. These distinct profiles simply go to demonstrate the different paths each has followed, with the same end objective. Becoming a serious global player.
Another firm that stands out is Cybrid Technologies. It’s a name not many people outside the sector will hear, considering the nature of the work the firm does. As a builder of backsheets for solar modules, the firm is locked in a battle with much more larger, and older competitors to dominate the global backsheets market. An area where it has had some significant success. Read more about Cybrid here.
When you think of China, you think of scale. And perhaps few firms denote scale as conclusively as Tongwei Solar, or TW Solar, as it is called. The firm has entered, and quickly taken global leadership in cell production for solar modules in a very short span of time. Today, it moves global markets with its announcements, be it on pricing, or capacity expansions. TW has used every tool out there to move ahead, be it the latest technology or massive scale. Catch up on this giant here.
Talking of giants, no discussion on China’s large solar sector firms will be complete without Sungrow. This firm, with an installed capacity of 50 GW of inverters, has been a big believer in India too, with its manufacturing plant for inverters the largest in the category here. The firm has made it a habit to hit miletones, with its latest being the cumulative 100 GW of shipments, back in December 2019. Catch up more on Sungrow here.
