Chinese water heater market is dominated by electric water heater, gas water
heater, and solar water heater, of which, solar water heater enjoys the
highest growth margin.
In regard to manufacturers, solar water heater manufacturers in China can be
divided into three groups. Group 1 is represented by Himin Solar who enjoys
the No.1 market share and is engaged in solar water heater as well as the
entire solar energy industry. Group 2 mainly consists of Ecoo Solar, Tsinghua
Solar, and Huayang Solar, wherein, Ecoo Solar has experienced relatively rapid
development recently with the sales volume in the north very close to that of
Himin. And Group 3 covers some local brands.
The release of subsidy policy for solar water heaters to the countryside will
greatly improve the purchasing power of rural consumers and fuel the
development of rural solar water heater market.
