PVinsights: Solar market stumbles as buyers turn cautious

Alternative Energy - Thu, 04/19/2018 - 09:01
The Polysilicon held steady this Wednesday as more buyers halted to pile stocks in recent month in a week of tremendous downward swings felt in downstream market in China. With depressed wafer prices, buyer's efforts to reduce losses have restrained polysilicon price gains, signaling tighter margins and tougher operating conditions for solar wafer firms as polysilicon costs remained high. Although the mono-crystalline wafer makers kept procurement at a solid pace due to aggressive capacity expansion, expensive high-purity polysilicon prices have eroded their profit margin, reluctantly refusing to take further price hike. As for the conventional polysilicon that majorly used for multi-crystalline wafer production, the price pressure was even greater given that sliding multi-crystalline wafer prices and weaker-than-anticipated demand has deterred buyers' interest on procurement. In fact, more 2nd tier and 3rd tier polysilicon suppliers have increasing pressured by dimmed order visibility. Moreover, the recovery of polysilicon production also started to be a major concerns for polysilicon suppliers as the price might be unsustainable soon.
