How has the year 2022 been for JA Solar’s business in the region?
2022 has been a challenging year same as 2021. Solar modules have witnessed an increase in costs due to elevated commodity and freight prices. Polysilicon prices have reached their highest level since 2011, while other BOM material prices such as steel, aluminum, copper, and silver have also increased in which module prices have gone up significantly. However, the competitiveness of solar as a source of energy actually improves, due to much sharper increases in natural gas and coal prices. With that being said, we have worked closely with our clients and partners to overcome these challenges as we always do to maintain our position in the market as one of the leading solar module manufacturers.
Being a named player in the Middle East, tell us about your offerings in the region.
Given the fact that the ME PV market is in the developing stage these days, JA solar has successfully installed more than 1.5GW in the ME region (UAE, Jordan, Oman, KSA, Bahrain and Egypt) in which we always maintain 10-15% market share in this region. Most of the countries in ME have set ambitious renewable energy goals. If they are to be realized, the region will have to deploy more than 50 GW of solar PV by 2030. We are committed to building on this success and accomplishing a great achievement.
What updates and additions are you planning to your product portfolio in the coming year?
As you know, JA Solar is one of the leading solar manufacturers in the world. We always focus on high-efficiency modules. JA Solar keeps producing and promoting high-performance modules. We strictly focus on the quality of our products as a priority throughout the entire production process which includes raw materials qualifications, modules design, manufacturing quality inspection and testing using leading-edge technology and advanced devices from an ingot, wafer, and cells to modules.
