Due to fast shrinking demand, some China-based PV makers have run out of working capital and a top-tier maker has deferred payments to supply chain partners, according to industry sources.

Demand has been dropping because of seasonality, worsened by the US's decision to impose 4-year safeguard tariffs on imported solar products, and India's plans to also impose safeguard tariffs as high as 70%, the sources said.

It remains to be seen whether global PV demand will rebound in March, the sources indicated.
