Capitalize on Government’s Pro-Solar Manufacturing Policies

The Modi Government at the Centre is providing an enormous impetus on ‘Make in India’ for Solar and has also set a super-ambitious target of 100 GW of Solar by 2022. The ministry is even considering to provide direct subsidies to Solar Panel manufacturers to encourage growth. Given all this huge thrust, Indian businesses are having the most attractive opportunity in Solar, now.

India today has an installed domestic module manufacturing capacity of about 3100 MW. Of this, India’s top tier module manufacturing companies contribute about 40% of the overall capacity. Solar Mango estimates that an additional 400 MW will be added between May and Dec 2016, and an additional 650 MW in 2017.

Given these market conditions, it is important for the client to evaluate the expected growth, demand and market potential of solar modules before testing the waters. Solar Mango, armed with the experience gained from assisting corporates diversifying into the module manufacturing vertical, can provide rare insights in the following key sections:

Market Potential Analysis

Solar Mango can do a thorough analysis and determine the market potential for Solar PV modules as mentioned below:

Market potential for modules

  • Current Demand
  • Future Demand
  • Demand for various segments
    • By region
    • By rooftop or ground-mounted

Current Supply and Competitor status

  • Domestic manufacturing scenario of modules currently
  • Domestic manufacturing scenario of modules forecast until 2020
  • Trends in imports of modules – now and until 2020

Demand – Supply Analysis

  • Estimates of module demand-supply for different scenarios – Optimistic, likely, pessimistic

Regulatory Assessment

  • Solar Mango will provide an understanding of what are the policies and regulatory barriers that one needs to be aware of-before entering module manufacturing
  • Role of DCR (Domestic Content Requirement) in the success of module business in India
  • Future prospects of the module business inside and outside India

Competitor Analysis

The solar PV manufacturing sector has significant challenges. Some parts of the value chain such as Polysilicon manufacturing have no domestic players but are high risk investments, given the high Capex involved and the significant global competition.

On the other hand, module manufacturing is a relatively low risk game from a Capex standpoint, but have significant competition from numerous domestic companies as well as Chinese companies that offer similar products at far lower prices.
For a new entrant in solar module manufacturing, it is necessary to evaluate the competition before anything and Solar Mango can evaluate the competitive landscape within the sector, with detailed look at the strengths and weaknesses of principal competitors as follows:

Evaluation of Key Players

We can do a thorough assessment on the 10 most successful players in Solar PV manufacturing segment which will include details on the following:

  • Profiles, history and years in operation
