PVinsights: Shrinking Demand for Mono PERC Products Forces Suppliers Spur Pricing War

Alternative Energy - Thu, 11/09/2017 - 08:56
Overall polysilicon prices drop slightly this week with minor correction in Chinese market. Although demand and supply remained quite balanced currently, the suppliers have sensed downstream price pressure and some reacted faster in lowering prices to retain clients. Furthermore, as to maintain the relationship with certain strategic mono-crystalline wafer makers in China, some Korean polysilicon suppliers proactively lowered prices despite solid demand in polysilicon sector. While in overseas market, polysilicon prices remained little changed from last week amid thinning trading.
