Global Polysilicon Market ----------------------------------------------------2014


View Report Details Executive Summary Polycrystallion silicon, commonly known as polysilicon, is a hyper-pure form of silicon. It is classified on the basis of varying purity levels into three broad categories: Electronic-grade Silicon (9N), Medium-grade Silicon (6-7N), and Upgraded Metallurgical-grade Silicon (>5N). Solar and semiconductor industries are the two major end markets of polysilicon. The global polysilicon market witnessed a declining trend in the past year which was primarily due to excess capacity and low prices in the industry. The key factors driving the growth of the aforementioned industry are solar cell market, semiconductor industry and accelerating global economy. Some of the noteworthy trend and developments of this industry are decreasing production cost, stabilizing prices and strong growth rate in the solar market. However, there are a number of hurdles that are holding the polysilicon market, such as industrial overcapacity and heavy capital and time requirement to establish the business. The report contains a comprehensive analysis of the global polysilicon industry along with detailed study of regional markets including China and Japan. An intense competition is noted among few major players: Wacker Chemie AG, REC Silicon ASA, GCL and SunEdison. Global competitive analysis is also included in the report along with company profiles of the leading players in the market. The report “Global Polysilicon Market� also analyzes the end markets of the polysilicon industry, including solar and semiconductor industry. By taking into account the major segments of the aforementioned industries, the market outlook of the polysilicon industry is also discussed in detailed in the report.


Polycrystallion silicon, commonly known as polysilicon, is a hyper-pure form of silicon and is earth’s second most abundant element. •

The production of the polysilicon accounted for …ton, depicting a slight decline of …% in 2013 from …. ton in the prior year. This decrease was mainly on the back of major overcapacity in 2012. Many companies were shut down in 2012, especially in China, after the problem of overcapacity prevailed and prices were reduced to the minimum. The industry recorded astounding CAGR of …% during the period spanning from 2009 to 2013.

The estimated overcapacity in the polysilicon industry in 2013 is … MW which is …% lower than the overcapacity in the prior year, which accounted for …. MW. 2012 witnessed the maximum overcapacity in the industry ever as several new and established players in the industry moved to build significant new capacity.

As per the current scenario, the major end market of polysilicon is the solar industry, which accounted for a staggering ….% of global polysilicon end demand in 2013. Semiconductor industry held …% of the end demand of polysilicon in the aforementioned period.

The global polysilicon market witnessed a declining trend in the past year which was primarily due to excess capacity and low prices in the industry. •

Following the rising trend towards the use of renewable energy, the demand of the solar PV and hence the demand of the polysilicon is increasing at a fast pace. The estimated demand of polysilicon reached …GW in 2013 from …GW in 2012, depicting an incline of ….%. The polysilicon demand is expected to increase at a CAGR of …% for the period spanning 2007-2013.

As of year 2013, Tier 1 companies accounted for the maximum share of the global polysilicon capacity, even though the capacity expansion plan remained on hold for this segment in the citied period. …% share of the total capacity is held by aforementioned segment. Tier 2 held …% of the global capacity, followed by the Tier 3 segment which accounted for … % share.

Global polysilicon market is rebalanced to some extend in year 2013, after experiencing the oversupply since 2011. Polysilicon industrial cost is one of the factors responsible for this upturn. The cost of the top producer rests at US$../kg, whereas the cost of the very small producers reaches as high as US$../kg.
