PVinsights : Multi module price gets better as the notable China demand improvement.

Overall multi module price steps up this week because the demand of China recovers gradually, but mono module price keeps stable this week. In Japan, the demand on modules shrinks notably as some Japanese power companies stop connecting solar power systems into their electricity grids.

Overall multi module price steps up this week because the demand of China recovers gradually, but mono module price keeps stable this week. In Japan, the demand on modules shrinks notably as some Japanese power companies stop connecting solar power systems into their electricity grids. In the US, Chinese module makers continue to sell modules with lower prices which were imported from China before July US AD ruling on Taiwanese cells. In EU, because the EURO appreciates mildly this week, module price pressure eases temporary.


Overall multi cell price raises this week mainly driven by the gradual demand recovery in China and the increasing multi wafer prices. In addition, multi cell production utilization rate of solar makers shifting to mono cell also supports the multi cell price upturn. Overall mono cell price drops this week, because Japanese mono cell buyers suddenly cease their procurement.

Overall multi wafer price is back to uptrend because China domestic demand pick up slowly but surely. Moreover, major multi wafer makers still have the aggressive intentions to increase multi wafer prices. As for mono wafer price, the decrease of mono cell and module prices ban the mono wafer price increasing while demand on mono wafer remains stable. As the result, overall mono wafer price is flat this week.

Polysilicon prices improve tenderly this week because some polysilicon suppliers are successful to strengthen their price policy through China demand enhancement. However, the China demand recovery is not strong enough to boost the polysilicon price sharply. Therefore, polysilicon prices only increase vaguely.
