Manufacturing capacity

From 2014 to 2017, the company’s manufacturing capacity for solar cells and modules is estimated to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 15% and 16%, respectively. Trina Solar (TSL) reached a manufacturing capacity of 3,100 MW for cells and 4,000 MW for modules at the end of 2014. ReneSola (SOL) has a module capacity of 1,200 MW and SunPower (SPWR) has a combined cell and module manufacturing capacity of 1,700 MW. Yingli (YGE), on the other hand, has a capacity of 3,200 MW and 4,000 MW for cells and modules, respectively.

So far, Canadian Solar doesn’t have higher manufacturing capacity than its peers. But taking a look at the company’s photovoltaic module market share, you can see that it has consistently improved over the last five years.
