With nearly 10% of the solar module market in 2013, Yingli Green Energy (YGE)* retained the #1 spot in the market.
To be more exact, 9.4% of solar module capacity sold in 2013 came from Yingli. #2 was Trina Solar, which accounted for 8.2%; #3 was Sharp (thanks to a strong solar market in its home country of Japan), with 6% of the global market; #4 was Canadian Solar (after sitting in second back in 2012), 5.4%; and #5 was JinkoSolar (replacing JA Solar).
Such rankings can vary a bit from one market research firm to another. This ranking comes from GlobalData.
*Full disclosure: I hold stock in Yingli Green Energy (YGE). I’m “long” Yingli, as they would say.
