China: Export Duties Push Up Vacuum Tube Prices

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 16, 2014
Vacuum tubesWhoever is purchasing vacuum tube collectors from China these days can certainly not complain about getting contradictory information: There are those suppliers which are already charging their clients 17 % more for vacuum tubes because of altered export taxation, whereas others sell their vacuum tubes at the same price as they did in the past. The notable price differences result from a decision by some Chinese provinces to change their HS code for vacuum tubes. The tubes used to be under HS code 84199010, as a part of solar water heaters, and as such, they were exempt from export duty. For example, the authority in Zhejiang province changed the classification to HS code 7020009990 for glassware, which stipulates a 17 % export duty.

China: Engineering Segment Drives Solar Thermal Market

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on August 27, 2014
China building integrationThe make-up of China’s solar thermal market is changing: The segment that used to guarantee the industry’s profits, the retail business of small thermosiphon systems for private households, has been declining in recent years. Other solar thermal segments, however, have been taking off in the meantime – for example, the market for more sophisticated solar thermal installations that are integrated into blocks of flats, hospitals, schools or universities. There is also growing interest in medium- and high-temperature solar thermal systems for industrial process heat. According to the annual surveys and market reports by Sun’s Vision, a consultancy located in Shandong province, the so-called solar thermal engineering market, which includes building integration and industrial process heat systems, increased by 50% in 2012 and 2013, after having grown by 35 % in 2011. The pie chart shows the individual categories of the building integration segment in 2013, which was the main driver of the national market.

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on June 12, 2012

 Solar Shops in China The Chinese solar thermal industry has set up a highly organised distribution network based on more than 50,000 solar shops all around the country. The market researchers of the Sun´s Vision, located in Dezhou, estimate that around 20,000 of these shops are franchise businesses, which deal in one brand only. They belong to one of the top four collector manufacturers Himin Solar, Sunrain Group, Sangle Solar or Linuo Paradigma. The photo shows a franchise partner shop of Linuo Paradigma (left) and Sangle (right) in the city of Jinan, Shandong province. Most shops, however, sell more than one brand of solar energy equipment.
