Decline in global demand for Taiwan manufacturers of photovoltaic cells are forced to cut price

Polaris solar PV net news: according to sources, given the sharp drop in global demand, Taiwan crystalline silicon solar cell manufacturers will quote from February 2015, the average price of polysilicon cells (0.30-0.32 dollars per watt), down from the current 0.28 to 0.32 dollars per watt.

With rising purchasing costs and EUR/JPY depreciated against the dollar, EU USA Japan PV module market demand has started to shrink, this is the major factor contributing to global markets fell sharply.

Because of falling demand, Taiwan solar cell capacity utilization is likely to result in early 2015, down to the end of March heads. Other non-first-tier firms could fall to around 50%.

If solar cell prices to fall further, Taiwan manufacturers could be forced to cut production to stem the price decline.

In response to the price decline, Taiwan solar cell makers plan 2015 Si module conversion efficiency increased from 17.6-17.8% in the second quarter. (Translator: Bian Xiaoyun)
