Polaris solar PV net news: according to the latest customs statistics, in May 2016, China imports above tons of polysilicon, 10159 tonnes, reduced 16.1% per cent in January-May, imported 58886 tons, an increase of 19.8%. Led to cumulative imports volume constantly refresh increases records of reasons has: first, from Korea imports volume high, in imports total in the accounted for than has been maintained in 50% around of high, keep maximum imports source to, especially April from Korea imports polysilicon volume create history high reached 6614 tons, accounted for total imports volume of 54.7%, May imports volume for 4875 tons, accounted for total imports volume of 48%; second, from Taiwan imports polysilicon accounted for than increasingly increased, April from Taiwan imports volume for 1941 tons, Record, 16% per cent of total imports, imports in May 1511, also remained high at 14.9% per cent, the highest in China’s third-largest importer. In conclusion, Korea, and Taiwan imports remain high for a long time, are the main factors leading to total imports of innovative high.
In May, China imported polysilicon prices slightly rose to 16.59 dollars/kg per cent from 12.1% per cent. May rebound in prices is mainly attributed to the United States imported electronic grade products ratio increased significantly in polycrystalline silicon, so the price may go up.

According to country-specific import figures May total imports 10159, reduced 16.1% per cent, from Korea and the United States, and Germany, and Taiwan four imported polysilicon 8896 tons, total imports of 87.6%,
May from Korea is 4875 tonnes were imported, accounting for 48% of the total imports from United States imports of 383 tons, 3.8% per cent of total imports from Germany imports 2127, 20.9% per cent of total imports from Taiwan was 1511 tonnes were imported, total imports of 14.9%; the other area is 1263 tonnes were imported, accounting for 12.4% of the total.
Worthy of note are the following three aspects:
First, Taiwan imported polysilicon for 9 consecutive months above thousand tons, and in April was increased from 1941, record, total imports of 16% compared to normal imports increased more than twice times, May also remain high at 1511, 14.9% per cent of total imports. Because by Taiwan imports to avoid “double reverse” levy has gradually become the mainstream and more rampant, even from the United States imports substantially reduced, since the United States and Taiwan imports and is still about 2000 tons/month, and the United States is not yet reduced amounts. It is well known that Taiwan did not polysilicon production enterprise, but customs data of Taiwan appears as a country of origin, through 8-bit encodings cannot differentiate between polysilicon ingot, while Taiwan also has ingot manufacturers, making investigation difficult.
Second, May from the Korea import polysilicon 4875 tonnes, a decrease of 26.3%, in the proportion of total inflow for the month up to 48%, today 1-May from Korea imported 28528 tons, up drastic increase of 48.6%. May since Korea by processing trade way imports polysilicon 349 tons, accounted for since Korea imports total of 7.2%, than Qian 50% around of processing trade accounted for than has sharply reduced, main remains due to “suspended processing trade” policy strictly implementation Hou, Korea of main export Enterprise OCI and Korea silicon industry (HankookSilicon) of tax only for 2.4% and 2.8%, anti-dumping tax on its fundamental not caused any effect, so are full produced run, still export China, In accordance with general trade to China, other tax rates slightly higher enterprise through re-exports Taiwan or special approval procedures by processing trade in China. So leads from Korea into the country increased the amount of polysilicon, and again hit a record high. Meanwhile, in 1-May from Korea imported polysilicon prices fell to $ 13.94 per kg, up slumped by 23.6%. The above data shows that the “double reverse” the Korea anti-dumping penalties too weak, Korea whether it is in the general trade and processing trade exports to China, had no effect on its, and it can be repeatedly lower the price dumping. Obviously, Korea imported both from the price or import production had serious impact on domestic markets, so Korea review dumping should be regarded as a top priority.
Three, according to the trade points in May 2016, China’s processing trade imports 1462 tons, accounted for 12.4%, today 1-May by way of processing trade imports 9511, 16.2% per cent of total imports. 1 May for all imported goods in the bonded warehouse for processing trade goods in transit up to 88% per cent, a large majority of non-General trade of such products through the bonded warehousing transit entry mode. Points country specific seems: May since Korea by processing trade way imports polysilicon 349 tons, accounted for since Korea imports total of 7.2%, this 7.2% in the has 68.8% is bonded warehouse transit goods, warehouse transit way imports proportion increasingly increased; 5 since United States by processing trade way imports polysilicon 346 tons, accounted for since United States imports total of 90.4%, while processing trade imports volume in the 100% through “bonded warehouse” of way into ; 5 out of Germany by way of processing trade imports 506 tons of polysilicon, Germany imports total 13.8%, and “bonded warehousing goods” accounted for Germany 88% of the processing trade. “Bonded warehouse” has become to avoid “double reverse” another effective way of tax, to be given enough attention.
Country-specific statistics are as follows:
May 2016 from the Korea import polysilicon 4875 tons per cent increase 26.3% imports price slightly rose to 15.72 USD/kg, rose to 8.7%.
2016 1 May from Korea cumulative imported polysilicon 28528 tons, an increase of 48.6% total import price dropped to $ 13.94 per kg, down 23.6%.
May 2016 from United States imports of 383 tons of polysilicon, the chain increased substantially by 28.5 times times May import price increased sharply to 33.91 dollars/kg per cent from 21.7% per cent.
2016 1 May from the United States today imports of 2243 tons of polysilicon, down 74.2% total imports averaged US $ 40.15/kg, up 119.6%.
May 2016 from Germany import polysilicon 2127 tons, increased 0.9% per cent May import price slightly rose to 15.86 dollars/kg per cent from 0.9% per cent.
2016 1 May from Germany total import polysilicon 14065 tons, down 2.4% total import price of $ 15.27 per kg, down 29.9%.
According to customs statistics, in May 2016, China export 741 tons polysilicon, chain 45%, 1-May total exports 4925 tons, an increase of 92.4%.
