The business profit rate became negative last year since the sale price of PV modules has fallen down to the level of production cost due to the solar market downturn and hence solar companies are continuously devoting efforts to continue to survive in the solar market.

The Chinese Top Tier Company 'B' which vertically integrated the cell/module business maintains an equivalent level of cell and module capacity since it uses all the cells produced to manufacture modules. The production capacity is expecting to expand to 2.3GW this year from 1.9GW last year and through continuous expansion the capacity is expecting to reach 2.9GW by 2015.

The production cost of module last year in 4Q is 62.5% compared to 2009 Q1. The production cost has been reduced by 26.5% from material cost including glass and film, 6.4% from selling and administration expense, 4.6% from labor expense.

This report contains Company 'B's quarterly production cost analysis of cell/module from 2009 to 2015. In particular by providing production cost and price for component parts for each production process, the production cost analysis is presented with clearer evidence. In addition strategies for cost reduction, CapEx, Opex are provided.
