Solar companies have struggled in 2012 as poor economic conditions and increased competition have caused demand for solar cells to fall. Chinese manufacturers have been hit the hardest as complaints from U.S. companies have led to "anti-dumping" tariffs as high as 250 percent on Chinese solar products.
While markets in the U.S. and Europe have slowed, demand for solar products in China remains strong. Despite posting quarterly losses, JA Solar and Yingli Energy shares surged as revenues within China increased. JA Solar reported shipments within China more than doubled quarter-over-quarter, while Yingli Energy reported Chinese sales rose 14 percent sequentially and 28 percent year-over-year. Both companies have plans to expand into Southeast Asian markets in the fourth quarter.
