Polaris solar PV net news: according to EnergyTrend watch, in December China’s domestic demand still more support, overseas multicrystalline silicon wafer, solar cell prices fell significantly in price in the mid-and expected decline will continue before the lunar new year.
Polycrystalline silicon market in China is still in short supply, some manufacturers will offer up to more than RMB140/kg, but without too much supply available, actual price falls in the RMB135~140/kg range, because polysilicon has been turned down, expected in December, are polysilicon prices peak in January, is difficult to continue to rise.
Devaluation of the renminbi and the easing impact of Taiwan polysilicon prices continue to fall and landed on US$0.64-0.66/pc, the Chinese market is temporarily held steady at RMB5.0-5.1/pc. Downstream demand reduced, polycrystalline silicon chips will continue to decline temporarily widened spreads of polycrystalline and monocrystalline silicon wafer. Monocrystalline silicon wafer is still missing, so in order to avoid influence with coarse the price difference is too large and single crystal growth of market share in the future, anticipated silicon chip prices end may be adjusted slightly.
With polysilicon prices down, China Taiwan 18.4% conversion efficiency of more efficient battery below US$0.23/W,18.2% down half moon battery efficiency than last week, will again fall into US$0.05/W. County vendor quote remains at around RMB1.8-1.85/W, price of two or three small plants are more obvious. Crystal PERC PERC components offer the battery because the market had dropped, making average price falls below US$0.32/W, it is difficult to maintain high gross margins last month, January decline will become more pronounced.
Component parts, component prices continue to fall in the world, used to be the high price market in the United States, Europe, Japan and other places at present minus shipping, has almost no price difference and the Chinese market, was originally responsible for the relatively low price India market has fallen to US$0.32-0.35/W. In addition, manufacturers have quoted 2017Q1 prices still fell markedly, 2017 component prices continue to break the end of next year will be a year of difficult times.
