Evaluation of Taiwanese Solar Cell Industry Operational Performance Using Two-Stage Data Envelopment Analysis
Taiwan’s solar power industry has developed midstream cell manufacturers with a certain share of the global market. Therefore, examining the operating performance of Taiwanese solar cell manufacturers has become vital for the international competitiveness of Taiwanese manufacturing. This study used a two-stage data envelopment analysis (DEA) method to measure the operational abilities and profitability of Taiwanese solar cell manufacturers. The research period for this study was between 2009 and 2011. This study’s primary contribution is in constructing a performance evaluation model for the solar cell industry to assist relevant manufacturers in the Taiwanese solar power industry in formulating operational strategies.
