According to JMK Research’s latest annual India Solar Report Card, LONGi has emerged as the sub continent’s leading supplier of solar modules in 2020, with a 15.6% share of total shipments of some 9478 MW.
The company supplied over 1,500 MW (DC) of modules during the year and, in addition to its top position in utility projects, also gained a significant share of the rooftop market.
“2020 has been a memorable year for LONGi’s business in India. We sincerely thank all our partners and customers who made this possible. In 2020, LONGi was also ranked number one in terms of global shipments and was once again the PV industry’s highest investor on R&D. We work tirelessly to provide our customers with the best technology for their projects,” commented Pradeep Kumar, LONGi Solar’s Director for India and Sri Lanka.
2020 was the first year where shipments of high efficiency mono crystalline PERC modules in India overtook those of multi crystalline modules. Key factors contributing to this significant market shift from multi to mono are the narrowing price differences between the two, the higher efficiency of mono modules and the complete shift to mono production by leading Chinese suppliers.
