Chinese PV module manufacturers are starting to quickly gain global market share by capitalizing on the global economic downturn and utilizing their low-cost production structures to compete with rival American and European companies.  Recent data from GTM Research reveal that China’s global module production, as measured in MW-dc, grew from 30 percent of the global total in 2007 to 40 percent in 2009. China’s four largest PV module producers — Suntech Power, Yingli Green Energy, Trina Solar, and Solarfun — all rank in the top ten PV module producers globally, accounting for a total of 1,941 MW-dc of module production in 2009.
