Polysilicon Capacity Growth to Accelerate, Enabling 85 GW of Solar Photovoltaic Production in 2016

A total of 130 thousand metric tons (kilometric tons or KMT) of polysilicon manufacturing capacity, equivalent to roughly 25 gigawatts of crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar PV panels, is estimated to come on-line in 2015 and 2016, according to GTM Research’s newest report, Polysilicon 2015-2018: Supply, Demand, Cost and Pricing. By 2016, cumulative global polysilicon supply … Continue reading Polysilicon Capacity Growth to Accelerate, Enabling 85 GW of Solar Photovoltaic Production in 2016

Can Photovoltaic (PV) Technology Change before 2015?

Around about this time each year, we have a closer look at the PV technologies that were used to make all the solar panels in 2013 that ended up being shipped through downstream channels. This is done by analysing the exact split of production across all the different c-Si process flow types, substrate types for … Continue reading Can Photovoltaic (PV) Technology Change before 2015?

Photovoltaic Global Demand for Polysilicon to Surge 25% in 2014

Demand for polysilicon used in solar and semiconductor applications is expected to rise sharply to 282,000 metric tons in 2014, up 25% versus last year. According to the latest NPD Solarbuzz Polysilicon and Wafer Supply Chain Quarterly report, the growth in demand for polysilicon is being driven by the rapid increase in end-market solar photovoltaic … Continue reading Photovoltaic Global Demand for Polysilicon to Surge 25% in 2014
