PVinsights: Mono Cell and Wafer Price Correction Weighs on Sentiment

Alternative Energy - Thu, 06/22/2017 - 08:44
Polysilicon prices slipped amid the faltering demand, as the procurement of polysilicon buyers has been slowing down. Moreover, as Chinese polysilicon suppliers currently operate in full production, there has been a growing concern among the supply glut in July. The pessimistic sentiment reflected on the drop of polysilicon prices in China, as Chinese polysilicon suppliers stepped back to comply with price discounts. In overseas market, as the productivity of downstream wafer suppliers was restrained and showed no sign of recovery, major suppliers shifted more of their products to China to prevent worsening glut in overseas markets. However, such attempts did not ease the pressure of downward price trend as the prices in overseas extended the drop this week.
