When It’s Cheaper to Buy Than Manufacture, What Do You Do?

When It’s Cheaper to Buy Than Manufacture, What Do You Do?

It's that time of year when top 10 lists are created from the flotsam of the current year's sales -- and there was a lot of flotsam in 2009. Cell and module prices have crashed by (in some cases) 50% from 2008 levels. In many cases it is much cheaper to outsource or toll than it is to manufacture product in-house. This means arriving at an accurate count of what was sold will be difficult, the potential of overcounting the industry significantly more probable, possibly rendering the usefulness of the annual top 10 lists moot.
