Although this week’s orders have been completed before Chinese New Year (CNY), due to the benefit of price increase for si-wafer before CNY, price increased this week. Upstream polysilicon and si-wafer benefited from this trend, and the prices slightly rose; the increase in PV cell and module prices still depended on individual products. According to the following trend of overall market, overseas multi-si products were still supported by demands from India and Japan, and although the demand for high-efficiency mono-si products in China was temporarily over, with mono-si product price–performance ratio being more and more favored by the market, the trend is expected to be optimistic, and it will increase the overall solar market product level.

Polysilicon

Affected by the increase after CNY, domestic mono-si and multi-si material prices increased slightly. So far, domestic multi-si material price has slightly grown to 71-77RMB/KG, with the average price rising to 74RMB/KG; mono-si material price has changed to 78-85RMB/KG, with the average price rising to 80RMB/KG. Overseas price has remained at 8.20~9.50USD/KG.

Si-wafer

This week, si-wafer market continued the trend of price increase before CNY, and the transaction price of small quantity orders on the market was higher than the average price. So far, domestic mono-si price has remained at 3.05-3.25RMB/Pc. Multi-si price has remained at 2.05-2.15RMB/Pc, with the average price increasing to 2.15RMB/Pc. Black silicon product price has enlarged to 2.30RMB/Pc. Overseas mono-si wafer price has been maintained at 0.385-0.428USD/Pc, with the average price increasing to 0.406USD/Pc; multi-si price has been 0.277-0.295USD/Pc, with the average price increasing to 0.280USD/Pc. Black silicon product price has grown to 0.310USD/Pc.

PV cell

This week, for PV cell, only specific product price increased due to specific market demand, and other product price remained unchanged. In terms of high-efficiency mono-si and general multi-si, they had experienced a price increase. So far, domestic general multi-si price has grown to 0.89-0.92RMB/W, with the average price increasing to 0.90RMB/W. General mono-si price has increased to 1.01-1.08RMB/W. High-efficiency mono-si price has been maintained at 1.21-1.28RMB/W. Ultra-high efficiency mono-si (>21.5%) price has grown to 1.32-1.35RMB/W, with the average price increasing to 1.33RMB/W. Overseas general multi-si price has increased to 0.115-0.145USD/W, with the average price increasing to 0.118USD/W; general mono-si price has remained at 0.155-0.160USD/W. High-efficiency mono-si price has remained at 0.165-0.175USD/W. Ultra-high efficiency mono-si (>21.5%) price has remained at 0.175-0.180USD/W. Double-sided PV cell price has grown to 1.33-1.39RMB/W.

Module

The market atmospheres of module and PV cell were the same, and price adjustment was a supplement. Orders of the first-tier manufacturers were abundant, while middle- and small-sized manufacturers took a wait-and-see attitude. So far, domestic general multi-si (270-275W) price has remained at 1.78-1.85RMB/W. High-efficiency multi-si (280-285W) price has remained at 1.83-1.93RMB/W, with the average price increasing to 1.89RMB/W. General mono-si (290-295W) price has remained at 1.83-1.96RMB/W. High-efficiency mono-si (300-305W) price has remained at 2.15-2.30RMB/W. Ultra-high efficiency mono-si (>310W) price has increased to above 2.30RMB/W.

Overseas general multi-si price has remained at 0.212-0.270USD/W, with the average price increasing to 0.219USD/W; high-efficiency multi-si price has remained at 0.218-0.275USD/W, with the average price increasing to 0.234USD/W. General mono-si price has grown to 0.252-0.360USD/W. High-efficiency mono-si price has grown to 0.278-0.380USD/W. Ultra-high efficiency mono-si (>310W) price has grown to 0.290USD/W.
