Summary of “White Paper on Chinese Photovoltaic Industry Practitioners (2021-2022 Edition)” (with report)

From 2021 to 2030, the scale of global photovoltaic industry personnel will grow rapidly

In 2021, the scale of the global photovoltaic market continues to expand, and the number of gigawatt (GW)-level global installed capacity markets has increased from 11 in 2018 to 20 in 2021. According to statistics from the China Photovoltaic Industry Association, in 2021, the new installed capacity of photovoltaics in the world will be 170GW, a year-on-year increase of 31%, of which China’s newly installed photovoltaic capacity will be 54.88GW, a year-on-year increase of 13.9%.

According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) data, the number of global photovoltaic employment in 2020 will be 3.975 million, up from 3.755 million in 2019, a year-on-year increase of 6%, accounting for 33.1% of all global renewable energy industry employees, 2021 The number of employees in the global photovoltaic industry is expected to reach 5.35 million, a year-on-year increase of 34.6%.

From 2021 to 2030, the number of employees in the photovoltaic industry will maintain rapid growth, and the average annual growth rate is expected to reach 13.7%. In 2030, the number of employees in the photovoltaic industry is expected to reach 17.05 million; The average annual growth rate is 0.7%, and the number of employees in the photovoltaic industry is expected to reach 19.594 million in 2050.

my country’s existing photovoltaic industry has 410,000 direct employees, and the total number of employees is about 2.46 million

The number of direct employees in my country’s photovoltaic industry

According to the survey, in 2021, the total number of direct employees in the manufacturing and downstream applications of my country’s photovoltaic industry will be about 410,000. The number of employees in the photovoltaic power station sector is the largest, accounting for 33.2%, followed by modules, silicon wafers, and batteries.

Due to the wide range of subdivisions involved in indirect and derived employees, it is difficult to accurately count the corresponding data. Therefore, we use the widely used employment multiplier method to estimate. The employment multiplier is the total number of jobs driven by a job in a given industry. The semiconductor industry has an employment multiplier of 6.7, and the energy industry has an employment multiplier of 5.9.

Since the photovoltaic industry combines the characteristics of semiconductor manufacturing and energy, conservatively calculated according to the employment multiplier of 6, the total number of photovoltaic employees in China in 2021 will be 2.46 million.

Positions of employees in the manufacturing sector of my country’s photovoltaic industry

The number of direct employees in my country’s photovoltaic industry my country’s photovoltaic manufacturing industry has the typical structural characteristics of manufacturing personnel, and the proportion of production personnel in the job distribution is as high as 69.7%. The component production personnel account for the highest proportion of positions, exceeding 75%. The polysilicon sector has the highest proportion of technical personnel at 27.0%, showing typical technology-intensive characteristics.
