Chinese manufacturer JinkoSolar was the leading module supplier for solar capacity commissioned in India in the second quarter (April-May-June) of 2021. India added 2,110 MW AC of solar capacity in the second quarter, taking the total installed solar capacity to 46,130 MW AC. JinkoSolar modules accounted for 20% (528 MW) of the overall 2,662 MW DC solar capacity installed in Q2, as per Bridge to India’s latest quarterly report.
JinkoSolar’s flagship model Tiger Pro, which is believed to have been dominating the market since last year, contributed significantly to this figure.
JinkoSolar was the preferred supplier despite raw material sourcing issues, demand pressures, volatile upstream pricing, restricted movement of equipment, supply shortages, among other challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Having built a strong foothold in large-scale utility markets in India, the company also saw rapid adoption of its modules in the distributed PV segment during the second quarter.
“Moving to the third quarter of 2021, JinkoSolar’s Tiger and Tiger Pro ultra-high power series modules will continue to meet the increasing demand and expand our market share in the high-end distribution market,” said Daniel Liu, General Manager, JinkoSolar – South & Central Asia.
“JinkoSolar was the leading supplier to India during the first quarter in terms of shipment capacity with more than 800 MW of solar modules shipped and delivered to customers across the country. The second quarter was crucial for the company as we saw the successful installation and commissioning of a large part of that capacity which reaffirms our position as a market leader in both aspects – market share and technology acceptance. We continue to innovate and upgrade our technology platforms so that our product offerings make commercial sense for a highly competitive and strategic market like India,” said Gener Miao, CMO, JinkoSolar.
