PVinsights: Solar downtrend intact

Alternative Energy - Thu, 07/20/2017 - 08:58
Polysilicon prices are pressured by overseas light trading. Demand remains weak in overseas market due to the low utilization rates of oversea multi-crystalline wafer makers, pushing the buyers to propose lower polysilicon prices amid the glut. In China, the prices stabilize as the solid demand fails to boost the prices as buyers cannot afford more expensive polysilicon, hindered by the decreasing downstream product prices. For the suppliers, it is more important to secure the orders in August so as to keep the prices at the current level, despite the supply cut caused by their annual maintenance.
