PV industry prohibited to drive up prices and hoard

Recently, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the State Administration of Market Supervision and the National Energy Administration (hereinafter referred to as the "three departments") collectively interviewed some photovoltaic enterprises and industry institutions, making the burning photovoltaic industry the focus of the market again.

With the advent of the era of full parity PV access to the Internet and the positive policy impact of countries to achieve the goal of carbon neutrality, the PV industry continues to maintain a high boom. Behind the rapid development of the industry, there are many problems such as mismatch of various industrial chains, price rise, and vicious competition.

The MIIT once pointed out on the official website that the photovoltaic industry has experienced staged supply and demand mismatch, severe price shocks in some supply chains, hoarding in some links, fragmentation of the market, regional closure and other problems in some places. It is urgent to deepen industry management and guide the collaborative innovation of the industrial chain supply chain.

In order to further guide the coordinated development of upstream and downstream photovoltaic industry, on October 9, the website of the MIIT disclosed that the three departments collectively interviewed some photovoltaic enterprises and industry institutions.

The relevant departments will further strengthen work coordination, strengthen supervision and management, and strengthen the investigation and punishment of illegal acts such as driving up prices and monopolizing the production and sale of counterfeit and shoddy products in the industry.

In fact, in view of the soaring price of upstream silicon materials in recent years, relevant departments have already taken action many times, requiring local market supervision departments to strengthen supervision and management, strengthen cross departmental joint law enforcement, and severely crack down on illegal behaviors such as price hikes, monopolies, manufacturing and selling fake and inferior products in the photovoltaic industry.
