How do you see the likely price trend of solar modules in upcoming quarters?
The recent scenario states that the industry is witnessing increased energy demand worldwide, significantly solar module demand has also increased exponentially and is surpassing Polysilicon capacity by 2X globally. Apart from several factors including the influence of Covid-19 and the Russia-Ukraine war, which have had a significant impact on solar module costs. Even the market in the previous decade has had a significant influence on polysilicon pricing, as prices for polysilicon have climbed significantly due to rising market demand. The dollar price is too witnessing its highest fluctuation rate with an increase of up to 2% due to numerous reasons and factors indirectly impacting imports and exports. Market disruptions in terms of demand and supply will undoubtedly continue to affect pricing in the future, and exemptions and data indicate that prices are projected to grow in the future.
How many modules have you supplied in India till now? What is the target/expectation for this year and next year?
With our clear vision & mindset, we have grown exponentially, from the date of incorporation in 2016 we have supplied nearly about 1GW+ modules in the market. With continuous efforts and sales practices, Saatvik jumped from a distant No. 10 to a Top 3 Module manufacturer in India. In the financial year, 2022-23 company aims to supply nearly about 700MW+ modules in the market and expects to double the volume to nearly about 1 GW+ as the company has started its global market supply as well.
What do you think is needed to ramp up manufacturing in India? Or are we on track?
India is a growing manufacturing hub and soon will become one of the most preferred countries in the global market for manufacturing quality products. With Govt continuously supporting solar module manufacturers by introducing incentive schemes and policies such as PLI Scheme, the solar sector is soon going to witness high demand. According to the rating agency, robust domestic demand, favorable government policy, increased module conversion efficiency, and price competitiveness will push production capacity. Indian-made items may be more acceptable than imports since they have more reliable supply chains and are not constrained by rising shipping costs, as well as being possibly more competitively priced.
