India launches anti dumping investigation on PV products to China
India market accounts for more than 40% of the overseas market share of China's PV modules
From Europe to America and Asia, the "sea mark" of China's photovoltaic products can be called "double reverse"". Recently, the Chinese enterprises are facing India again.
The morning of July 25th, the news office of the Ministry of Commerce released the news that in July 21st, India Commerce Department announced anti-dumping investigation on self China in mainland and Taiwan and Malaysia imports of photovoltaic battery and components.
The Ministry of Commerce Trade Remedy investigation bureau director Wang Hejun said this, hope that the Indian side view of the overall situation, take a cautious attitude on the case, strictly in accordance with regulations to carry out the investigation, to avoid the abuse of trade remedy measures.
Modi hopes to replicate the wonders of gujarat"
In May 26, 2014, Narendra Modi, a new prime minister from India, was sworn in as the leader of the world's second most populous country.
Public opinion has come to the point that Modi was able to win a high vote because he created a miracle in gujarat".
During modi's re-election as chief minister of Gujarat, large-scale solar energy development began. In just 5 years, the country has become the leader in solar power development in India, with a capacity of 3000 megawatts, equivalent to 40% of India's solar power installed capacity. It can be said that Modi brought 24 hours of uninterrupted power supply to Gujarat, becoming one of the few "no electricity shortage" areas in India.
Modi said: "we should concentrate on the production of renewable energy power.". God has given us so much renewable energy that if it were to be used, India would no longer need coal, nor would it be expensive to import petroleum products."
According to the economist, Modi has already created a enviable record in gujarat. Modi is considered the first prime minister in the history of India with the knowledge of energy industry, and expanding the production of clean energy will be the modi policy of the modi government in energy development.
Therefore, from the beginning, modi began to make snap reform, give the power of the country vigorously carry out energy construction, he will be regarded as the India solar energy supply "ultimate solution", put forward by 2022 to achieve 100GW PV installed vision.
Thanks to the government's visible hand, India's photovoltaic market has expanded dramatically.
The International Renewable Energy Agency data show that in 2015, India's new photovoltaic installed capacity of 1.905GW, an increase of 141%, in countries around the world new "fifth" installed capacity, second only to China, Japan, the United States, the United kingdom.
The weak foundation of credit popular, India photovoltaic cake is not good.
Obviously, India has become a potential photovoltaic market. From the geographical position and regional economic considerations, Chinese enterprises have become an urgent need for help in India.
The India solar map (2016 Edition) released by BrgeToIndia, a well-known India analyst, showed that in 2016, 8 of the top 10 component suppliers in India came from china. Compared with only 4 Chinese component suppliers in 2015, more and more Chinese enterprises have been involved in the new energy market in India this past two years. According to preliminary statistics, at present, India PV installed capacity of about 70%, using the Chinese manufacturers of components products.
According to the China PV Industry Association statistics, the installed capacity of India this year will increase from about 5GW last year to 9GW, becoming China's second largest market after China, but also China's most important overseas photovoltaic market.
"India times" reported that in recent years the rapid development of India PV market, PV capacity increased by 3.7 times in the past 3 years, which also benefited from the Chinese export price is reasonable, quality excellent photovoltaic cells and modules.
Yingli group public relations director Wang Zhixin on the "China Economic Weekly" said: "India is an important emerging market for solar PV module production, accounting for more than China overseas market share of 40%, Yingli is also focused on the development of the overseas market. India local component manufacturers have less capacity and weak strength, but the potential of downstream power plants is huge."
On 2013, the EU Chinese photovoltaic enterprises to implement anti-dumping and countervailing final, China enterprises shall not be less than the promised in the EU to the lowest price sales, also set a China photovoltaic enterprises in the EU market share limit.
Since then, China's photovoltaic enterprises began to choose to explore overseas emerging markets, Japan and India become an important area of China's photovoltaic enterprise layout. At the same time, India's local PV modules have insufficient capacity and can not meet the plan of the government of India. The huge demand gap has attracted many foreign PV companies to enter the India market.
But India's photovoltaic cake looks good but it doesn't taste good.
In May 2015, under the witness of prime minister Modi of India, Trina Solar signed a memorandum of understanding with India Welspun company. The two sides planned to build 1GW battery and 1GW component manufacturing base in India. However, at present, the target of the project construction and production base has not been fully implemented.
Not only that, India's weak production capacity has also become a hindrance. A photovoltaic enterprise is responsible to the economic weekly "" China Tucao: "from the upstream polysilicon to silicon, batteries, and then to the final assembly, as well as supporting auxiliary, India local production capacity is very weak. Chinese photovoltaic companies set up factories in India, but the raw materials needed still need to be shipped from china."
To make matters worse, many investors believe that business with India enterprises must also bear credit risk.
Trina Solar chief operating officer Zhu revealed that 5 years ago, a local component manufacturer in India bought components from Trina
