EnergyTrend recently discovered among PV manufacturers a common sentiment of “evident increased demand, while price remained low”. According to this week’s survey, the spot price remained stable, compared with that of last week. The price stopped falling to new low, signaling a market bottom.
According to EnergyTrend’s latest survey, the market price decline has slowed down, while demand showed some signs of recovery. In terms of polysilicon price, the lowest price has come to $47/kg, but the main closing price has stabilized. In terms of Si wafer and solar cell, although the price continued to drop, the extent has narrowed.
According to the latest survey by EnergyTrend, PV spot prices have reached new low at the Intersolar Europe 2011. Though the price of polysilicon remained at $50/kg at the exhibit, it dropped below $50/kg concurrently in China. The Si wafer price has fallen below $2.0/piece while the solar cell price has decreased to around $0.7/Watt.
According to EnergyTrend’s survey, the spot price quotation this week is quite stable, compared to last week. However, the PV market demand remains uncertain. From the subsidy policy's point of view, Germany is considering a further 6% cut in previously scheduled solar subsidy cut, and there was only a slight subsidy cut in the mid 2011.
According to the latest survey by EnergyTrend, the market demand is yet to pick up, and the inventory in stock still remains at a high level. As a result, the polysilicon price has significantly dropped.
