2012 Overview of the Development of China's Photovoltaic Equipment

  China's photovoltaic equipment manufacturing industry has a long history of development. The first crystal growth equipment was born in 1961. At the beginning of the 21st century, the rapid development of the photovoltaic industry in Europe, the United States and Japan with the support of policies triggered the market demand for crystalline silicon, silicon wafers and component production equipment, which greatly promoted the development of equipment manufacturing enterprises. Through the introduction, digestion and absorption of international advanced technology, my country's photovoltaic equipment enterprises continue to increase research and development efforts, and gradually own photovoltaic equipment with independent intellectual property rights. With the intensification of market competition and the advancement of technology, the processing capacity, production efficiency and automation of photovoltaic equipment have been continuously improved, and the process of localization substitution is accelerating.

  China's photovoltaic equipment now covers most aspects of photovoltaic production such as crystal growth and processing equipment, photovoltaic cell production equipment, and module packaging equipment, and has a certain production scale and technical level. The cost of photovoltaic power generation is still higher than that of traditional power generation, which is the main reason that restricts the development of the photovoltaic industry. Against the background that global photovoltaic companies urgently need to reduce production costs, Chinese photovoltaic equipment companies will usher in a rare opportunity for their products with excellent cost performance, advanced technology and technology. development opportunities.
