Research Report on Polysilicon Industry in China, 2016-2020
While China polysilicon industry expands fast in the past years, the technology, management level and production efficiency also improve greatly. Presently, the production cost of China leading domestic polysilicon manufacturers has been reduced largely. Production cost of GCL-Poly, Daqo, TBEA, Sichuan Yongxiang and Asia Silicon is lower than 11-13 USD/kg, which is lower than that of Wacker, OCI, Hemlock, etc and equal to that of enterprises adopting silane fluidized bed, e.g. REC and SunEdison. However, the cost of other domestic enterprise is high up to 16 USD/kg. By the end of 2015, the number of polysilicon manufacturers decreases from 80 in 2011 to less than 20. Leading enterprises are GCL-Poly and China Silicon Corporation Ltd.
From the second half of 2013, affected by "Anti-dumping and Countervailing Duty" on imported polysilicon by China government, the price of polysilicon on China market rose slightly to 167,000 CNY/Ton in the March of 2014. After that, demand on China market decreased so the price decreased to 148,000 CNY/Ton in the end of 2014.
