PV cell technology has made great strides in 2019. P-Mono PERC products have become the mainstream in the market.
The total capacity for manufacturing P-Mono PERC cells is expected to exceed 115 GW in 2019, according to the 2019Q4 Advanced PV Technology Report published by EnergyTrend, the Green Energy Research Division from TrendForce.
When P-Mono PERC is in, what products are on their way out?
As the PERC manufacturing process has become the standard production technology of PV cells, P-Mono & P-Multi general products are exiting the market.
P-Multi PERC products are supported by demand from certain buyers. Their price-performance ratio is slightly superior in comparison with other module technology.
Why N-type cells rule the market: lower costs and higher power
The capacity for manufacturing N-Cell products may be able to exceed 15.8 GW in 2019, accounting for 7.9% of the total cell manufacturing capacity (including thin films).
It is estimated that it will continue to increase by more than 10% annually after 2020.
Thin film products have remained stable. It is expected to increase 2~4GW annually after 2020.
