PVinsights: Solar Edged Down, Thin Trading Limited Losses

Polysilicon prices edged lower this week, declining for a second week and sapping more strength from a third-quarter rally, amid signs that global glut in downstream may not be clearing as the bulls had hoped. The prices tiptoed lower in China, pressured by weaker multi-crystalline wafer prices but supported by the tight supply and the solid demand from mono-crystalline wafer makers which afford polysilicon's high prices. The polysilicon supply took a brief knock in overseas market as the explosion of Wacker's American plant restricted the supply, although healthy inventories and other suppliers, like Hemlock and REC silicon, offered support to the polysilicon supply.

PVinsights: Strong USD Damped Solar Prices

Polysilicon prices came off from three-week highs this week amid RMB depreciation against USD. As tight supply seemed to dwindle and buyers remained conservative of purchasing high-priced polysilicon, polysilicon prices in China hold steady in RMB term, but were translated into a moderate decline in dollar term with weakening RMB. Meanwhile, polysilicon prices in overseas stayed immobile from last week. Some polysilicon suppliers attempted to leverage the supply reduction caused by the factory explosion in Tennessee of Wacker Chemie to boost up the prices. However, such attempts were mostly failed as major buyers outside China continued to realize their long-term contracts with sufficient supply instead of purchasing expensive polysilicon in the spot market.
