PVinsights: Polysilicon collapse triggers downstream price routs

Polysilicon price is not out of the woods yet with downstream demand remaining a significant concern. The purchasing power of polysilicon buyers has been hampered as the wafer prices see enlarged correction and the domestic demand is also noticeably slower. Unclear order visibility has pressured on polysilicon suppliers to release more price discounts. Although Chinese polysilicon suppliers have tried to curtail production output by conducting annual maintenance, such attempt is unlikely to temper the weakening market sentiments. In addition, as the quarterly financial accounting process approaches, the accumulated inventory pressure also forces polysilicon suppliers to dump excess stocks and sending the price down further.

China's Solar Panel Glut Undermines Its Agreement with the EU

By Reuters:  “We fear a second wave of bankruptcies,” said the head of an association of EU solar producers.  A sharp increase in solar power production in China and a sharp fall in domestic demand have sparked a sudden surge of cut-price exports, undermining a China-EU agreement to limit damage to European producers. China produced 27 gigawatts (GW) of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules in the first half of 2016, an increase of 37.8 percent and installed 20 GW of new solar power capacity in the same period, three times as much as the same period a year ago. However, demand has since tailed off. Solar projects operational since July face a reduced price paid by grid operators for their power.    Cont'd...
