With next week’s upcoming annual PV event, the overall market was filled with a wait-and-see atmosphere. Many vendors are looking forward to attending the event. In addition to price changes caused by uneven supply and demand in some sectors, the overall supply chain was optimistic. In terms of the subsequent overall market trend, the demand will completely increase. There is an urgent need for grid connection in China, as well as in some overseas regions (ie. Vietnam). The installed capacity is also growing steadily in regions like Europe. These developments are all expected to boost the industry until the end of the year.
This week, the market price of polysilicon continued to stabilize. Due to the arrival of the end of the month and the annual event, manufacturers paid attention to price trends. Affected by the increased demand, mono-si material price slightly grew. Multi-si material suppliers still took a wait-and-see attitude more often. The price trends in the next month aren’t expected to be too pessimistic. In terms of overseas material, the difference between the highest and lowest price was reduced. The overall average price slightly rose. In terms of the recovery of production, the overall supply is expected to be deferred to the second half of June, or even to 2H19. So far, domestic multi-si material price has remained at 60-65RMB/KG. Mono-si material price has remained at 72-78RMB/KG. Overseas price has remained at 9.62-10.01USD/KG. Global average price has remained at 9.43USD/KG.
This week, si-wafer market supply and demand began to have unstable changes. Demand for mono-si was still tight, and some suppliers have resorted to cutting thin slices to increase production capacity. For multi-si, the supply and demand have been in a tight state. The orders for next month have yet to be decided, mainly because a price decline is expected in the buyer’s market. So far, overseas mono-si wafer price has been 0.415-0.430USD/Pc, with the average price remaining at 0.420USD/Pc. Multi-si price has remained at 0.250-0.270USD/Pc. Black silicon product price has increased to 0.282USD/Pc. Domestic mono-si price has remained at 3.02-3.17RMB/Pc. Multi-si price has remained at 1.86-2.00RMB/Pc. Black silicon product price has enlarged to 2.15RMB/Pc.
This week, PV cell market price was affected by the price increase from major manufacturers. There were fluctuations in both mono-si and multi-si products. For mono-si, although the overall market price wasn’t affected, this force is expected to heat up. For multi-si, the price started to increase, especially domestic multi-si. So far, overseas general multi-si price has remained at 0.115-0.129USD/W. General mono-si price has remained at 0.121-0.128USD/W. High-efficiency mono-si price has remained at 0.155-0.165USD/W. Ultra-high efficiency mono-si (>21.5%) price has been 0.155-0.178USD/W, with the average price remaining at 0.174USD/W. Domestic general multi-si price has increased to 0.88-0.90RMB/W, with the average price growing to 0.89RMB/W. General mono-si price has remained at 0.90-0.95RMB/W. High-efficiency mono-si price has remained at 1.15-1.20RMB/W. Ultra-high efficiency mono-si (>21.5%) price has remained at 1.18-1.25RMB/W. Double-sided PV cell price has remained at 1.23-1.29RMB/W.
This week, module market price slightly loosened. Last week’s price of 0.25USD/W was fermented in the market. Both high-efficiency and general multi-si prices were relatively compressed. The domestic market hasn’t been affected, mainly due to the wait-and-see atmosphere in the market before the arrival of the annual PV event. So far, overseas general multi-si (270-275W) price has remained at 0.210-0.260USD/W, with the average price dropping to 0.220USD/W. High-efficiency multi-si (280-285W) price has been 0.218-0.227USD/W, with the average price dropping to 0.225USD/W. General mono-si (290-295W) price has remained at 0.231-0.251USD/W. High-efficiency mono-si (300-305W) price has been 0.268-0.348USD/W, with the average price remaining at 0.271USD/W. Ultra-high efficiency mono-si (>310W) price has been 0.278-0.385USD/W, with the average price remaining at 0.285USD/W.
Domestic price hasn’t been affected by overseas price. Domestic general multi-si price has remained at 1.70-1.75RMB/W. High-efficiency multi-si price has remained at 1.80-1.85RMB/W. General mono-si price has remained at 1.83-1.90RMB/W. High-efficiency mono-si price has remained at 2.05-2.10RMB/W. Ultra-high efficiency mono-si price has remained at 2.10-2.20RMB/W.
