LONGi Solar, one of the leading solar module manufacturers in the world, recently released its 2018 annual report and first quarterly results.

The report shows LONGi’s operating revenue in 2018 was ¥21.988 billion ($197 million), an increase of 34.38% over the previous year and net profit attributed to shareholders of listed companies was ¥2.558 billion.

As of the first quarter of 2019, the company’s total assets were ¥43.165 billion ($387 million). Independent third-party research data showed the Chinese major accounted for 40% of the industry’s monocrystalline silicon wafer capacity, reinforcing its position as the largest monocrystalline module manufacturer in the world. According to BNEF, the financial health index, as measured by Alman-Z score, of LONGi ranks second in all global photovoltaic enterprises and first in China. 

In 2018, LONGi overseas shipments of the monocrystalline silicon wafer were 3.483 billion pieces, an increase of 59% over the previous year. Annual shipment of solar cells and modules reached 7.072 GW, a 50% increase over the previous year.

By the end of 2018, the production capacity of LONGi monocrystalline silicon ingot/wafer has reached 28GW. The Chuzhou 5GW module factory in Anhui Province was operational in March 2019, further expanding LONGi’s global high-efficiency monocrystalline module capacity. 

The company has also released the latest capacity planning:
