Chinese solar panels to the U.S account for less than a tenth of the Chinese industry’s worldwide sales
Existing tariffs have already limited sales of Chinese solar panels to the United States, to the point that they account for a little less than a tenth of the Chinese industry’s worldwide sales.
Steven Han, a solar industry analyst at SWS Research, an investment analyst based in Shanghai, said that without adding more tariffs, Chinese manufacturers would account for two to three gigawatts out of an American market of about five gigawatts this year. By contrast, Chinese manufacturers supply virtually all of China’s market, the world’s largest, which could reach 14 gigawatts this year. They also ship about five gigawatts each to the European Union and Japan each year, with smaller shipments to markets like Thailand.
I didn't know they had a production operation in South Africa , I thought they just had a sales office in South Africa. ON JKS web site they only list production operations in China. I only see they have a sales office in Africa.
