PVinsights: The Worsening Loses Forces Big Buyers Conservative

Alternative Energy - Thu, 06/29/2017 - 08:49
Polysilicon prices slightly slid amid thin trading in overseas market. In China, the prices stagnated due to different outlook interpretations from suppliers and buyers. Suppliers intend to raise the price quotes along with multi-crystalline wafers, assuming demand strength would be better than expected in the coming quarter. However, buyers are more pessimistic about future demand and therefore were more conservative at the procurements. Moreover, as major buyers have enough inventories for the moment, they take a wait-and-see attitude. Overseas demand remains weak as wafer producers are holding a low production utilization rate. Although buyers propose lower prices quote, few deals are signed, so the prices only have a moderate modification.
