Solar PV Global Supply Chains

China currently dominates global solar PV supply chains.


  • The International Energy Agency (IEA) published its Special Report on Solar PV Global Supply Chains, examining solar PV supply chains from raw materials all the way to the finished product, spanning the five main segments of the manufacturing process.

  • Global solar PV manufacturing capacity has increasingly moved from Europe, Japan and the United States to China over the last decade. China has invested over USD 50 billion in new PV supply capacity – ten times more than Europe − and created more than 300 000 manufacturing jobs across the solar PV value chain since 2011.
