GoodWe reiterates its ranking as a major global player

With a volume of more than 4 GW of capacity shipped in 2018 and more than 12 GW of total capacity installed all over the world, in 2018 GoodWe reached the ranking of the 7th largest supplier of PV inverters on a global scale. That information according to the recently released report by Wood Mackenzie and titled Global Solar PV inverter market: Market shares and shipment trends 2019.

This is not the first time that according to an authoritative international institution GoodWe makes it to the list of the largest suppliers of PV inverters (IHS and Bloomberg on previous years have also identified us a major supplier). The fact that an organization as reputed as Wood Mackenzie classifies our company on that ranking makes us very proud and it is a joy to share this with our global customers.

First, the hard facts of this report: in 2018, the GoodWe shipments of PV inverters reached 4% of the global market share, which in itself is remarkable, considering how fast the global market has been growing and how rapidly this trend intensified last year.

In two large central regions of the world, Europe and Asia-Pacific, GoodWe maintained an outstanding performance: last year, GoodWe supplied 3% of the inverters acquired by the European market, which made our company the top 10 largest supplier of this continent, which also happens to be the regional market with the fastest growth in the world and consequently, the strongest contributor to the growth of solar in the world.

In Asia-Pacific, GoodWe reached a 5% of the market share, making our company the 4th largest supplier, which is remarkable given the volumes involved and the size of the national markets of this region, that include the largest world markets of China and India and the sophisticated market of Australia.

The year of 2018 was very challenging for the Chinese solar industry, but GoodWe still managed to expand in the global market and the inclusion of our company on the Wood Mackenzie top ten list bears witness to those efforts. It is also worth mentioning that the more than 4 GW volume shipped by GoodWe last year was 35 times more than what we shipped in 2012 and more than double of what we shipped in 2016. The Wood Mackenzie report fully illustrates that despite the challenges of last year, GoodWe has managed to maintain a remarkable high rate of annual growth that since 2012 has averaged 100%.

Across the world the solar industry is experiencing a fresh wave of growth and the demand has continued to expand and diversify. The quality expectation of consumers around the world has become more complex and the inverter suppliers are forced to innovate and deliver value to meet the rising demand and excel amid fierce competition. GoodWe’s competitors are formidable companies and being part again of the big leagues is not a small feat in these times of rapid evolution.

The continuation of GoodWe on the selected group of the world top largest PV inverter suppliers rests on several factors. Three of them stand out: GoodWe has understood that service is of critical importance to win customers trust and satisfaction and as such it has set up local service teams in Europe, Latin America, India, Australia, Korea and other markets. The expansion seen over the past year of the GoodWe businesses across the world is just a reflection of those efforts.

Another factor is that GoodWe is distinguished by its capacity to react quickly to the customer demand, something that has been allowing the company to improve its products over significantly short periods of time.

Last but not least, it is worth mentioning the wide and expanding portfolio of GoodWe products that allow the company to cater to different market segments and within these, meet the quality expectations of different kinds of customers.

To all our partners and potential customers, we would like to tell you that when you buy or consider to buy a GoodWe inverter you are acquiring the product of a reputed brand that is among the top 10 global suppliers. Rest assured that this carries our commitment to provide you with value and the best service. Being part of the Wood Mackenzie top ten list gives us the motivation to keep improving on all respects.

JinkoSolar’s first bifacial panel with a transparent backsheet, Swan,  is about to be officially launched at Intersolar EU, which is likely to be one of the most powerful panels
available in the market.

The competition to deliver 430 watt on Cheetah 158” mono wafer is shaping up to be a fierce one. It won’t be long before all of the major markets will start a shift towards
premium mono solution.

Cheetah 60 cell module and its 158” premium mono technology, enables it to deliver up to 325Wp within a similar size, which is much more powerful compared to its previous
generations, conventional mono or poly module of 275Wp.

With a higher power peek , Cheetah enables lower LCOE, higher IRR and a generally more stable experience under unfavorable shading condition. With global market
continuing to shift towards premium mono, Cheetah will be a whole lot more efficient and reliable to compete.
