PVinsights: Solar market seesawed as China fragile recovery rattled market

Alternative Energy - Thu, 04/12/2018 - 09:00
Polysilicon prices hold steady this week as the attempts of price hike has deterred buyers¡¦ appetite. With wafer prices under pressured, the previous weekly price hike seems irrational for the major polysilicon buyers as to retain their margins, especially for multi-crystalline wafer makers. Although the mono-crystalline wafer makers, who were still in the phase of aggressive capacity expansion, had kept the procurement at a solid pace, the multi-crystalline wafer makers that suffered with weaker-than-then expected demand recovery tended to halt their procurement as the expensive polysilicon curbs appetite. Some 2nd tier Chinese polysilicon suppliers increasingly felt the pressure to likely offer price reduction in the coming weeks to align with the price downtrend of multi-crystalline wafer.
