China’s photovoltaic industry has formed the most complete industry chain in the world, said Cao Renxian, the Chairman of industry body China Photovoltaic Industry Association (CPIA) at the 2021 Photovoltaic Industry Chain Supply Forum held in Beijing.
In recent years, China’s photovoltaic industry has made full use of its technological foundation and industrial supporting advantages to develop rapidly, gradually gaining international competitive advantages and constantly consolidating the most complete photovoltaic industry chain in the world, said Cao.
The unique competitive advantage of China’s photovoltaic industry is an important guarantee for the continuous growth of the industry, the continuous improvement of technology and the continuous decline of manufacturing cost. It is the comprehensive technological progress of China’s photovoltaic industry chain that has created the brilliant achievements so far.
Despite the positive outcome, Cao also pointed out, there are still many problems in the development of industrial chain and supply chain. Due to the periodic shortage of raw materials for photovoltaic glass and polysilicon, the supply chain price rises rapidly, which seriously affects the healthy and orderly development of the industry.
Thus it’s urgent for every photovoltaic practitioners to help truly realize the rational and sustainable development of the industry, strengthen the supply chain management of the industry chain, avoid the periodic oscillation of the industry caused by the blind expansion of the production cycle, and avoid vicious competition, added Cao.
