Price Trend: Cells bottom out with hopes for an increasing demand

published: 2019-08-15 16:29 | editor: | category: Price Trend

There was no unexpected development in the overall market this week. The market is still on a “wait-and-see” approach. There may be some changes in prices between different stages of the entire industry chain. It will not, however, affect the subsequent trend of the market price. Looking ahead, it is difficult to see a growing demand and purchase orders in both domestic and overseas markets. As the autumn is approaching and some projects, which are under time pressure, are launched, the dark times should be coming to an end. The moment for the market to rebound is already on the horizon.

Polysilicon

Owing to the fact that the market is still in the strong grip of the “wait-and-see” mood, there is no significant change in the price of polysilicon. The overseas market was affected by the decreasing value of the Chinese renminbi (RMB). Therefore the overall price was revised downward. In the overseas market, the range of price revision is 8.81~9.82USD/KG at the moment. The average price is lowered to 9.14USD/KG. The global average price is lowered to 9.03USD/KG. In the domestic market, the price range of polysilicon remains unchanged at 56~62RMB/KG. The price range of the mono polysilicon remains unchanged at 74~78RMB/KG.

Silicon Wafers

Little change has taken place in the wafer market this week. Due to the support of the long-term supply agreements and the absence of individual orders which may influence the price, there is no shortage in the market supply anymore. It is agreed that the price of multi-Si wafers has fallen to the level of the cash cost, which does not afford much room for downward price revision. Plus, the demand is not high. Therefore the overall price is stable. In the overseas market, the price of the 156.75mm mono-Si wafers remains unchanged at 0.416USD/Pc at the moment. The price of the 158.75mm mono-Si wafers remains unchanged at 0.445USD/Pc. The price of the mono-Si wafers with the size of 161.75mm and above remains unchanged at 0.460USD/Pc. The price range of the multi-Si wafers price remains unchanged at 0.231~0.235USD/Pc. The black silicon products remain unchanged at 0.260USD/Pc. In the domestic market, the price range of the mono-Si wafers remains unchanged at 3.05~3.13RMB/Pc. The large-size products remain unchanged at 3.35RMB/Pc. The range of the multi-Si wafers price revision is 1.82~1.83RMB/Pc. The black silicon products remain unchanged at 2.06RMB/Pc.

Cell

The cell market seems to be on the path to recovery. There seems to be a consensus regarding the falling streak of the price, i.e. it is not possible that the price would crash below the cash cost. The overall price shows little change. The small and medium-sized manufacturers, in response to the stunted demand, have decreased their production or capacity utilization rate. In the overseas market, the price range of the general multi-Si cells remains unchanged at 0.104~0.123USD/W at the moment. The price range of the general mono-Si cells remains unchanged at 0.105~0.115USD/W. The price range of the high-efficiency mono-Si cells remains unchanged at 0.131~0.150USD/W. The price range of the superior high-efficiency mono-Si cells (>21.5%) remains unchanged at 0.125~0.190USD/W.

In the domestic market, the price range of the general multi-Si cells remains unchanged at 0.80~0.84RMB/W. The price of the high-efficiency multi-Si cells remains unchanged at 0.85RMB/W. The price range of the general mono-Si cells remains unchanged at 0.81~0.86RMB/W. The price range of the high-efficiency mono-Si cells remains unchanged at 0.93~0.97RMB/W. The price range of the superior high-efficiency mono-Si cells (>21.5%) remains unchanged at 0.96~1.04RMB/W. The price of the bifacial high-efficiency mono-Si cells remains unchanged at 0.98RMB/W.The price of the bifacial superior high-efficiency mono-Si cell (>21.5%) remains unchanged at 1.05RMB/W.

Module

The module market is similar to its upstream counterparts. While a small number of products see a limited price dip, there is no significant change in the price of the primary products. In the overseas market, the price range of the general multi-Si (270-275W) remains unchanged at 0.205~0.248USD/W. The range of high-efficiency multi-Si (280-285W) price revision is 0.216~0.220USD/W. The average price is lowered to 0.219USD/W. The price range of the general mono-Si (290-295W) remains unchanged at 0.235~ 0.251USD/W. The price range of the high-efficiency mono-Si (300-305W) remains unchanged at 0.265~0.330USD/W. The price range of the superior-high efficiency mono-Si (>310W) remains unchanged at 0.257~0.405USD/W. In the domestic market, the price range of the general multi-Si (270W~275W) remains unchanged at 1.63~1.75RMB/W. The price range of the high-efficiency multi-Si (280W~285W) remains unchanged at 1.78~1.85RMB/W. The price range of the general mono-Si (290W~295W) remains unchanged at 1.83~1.90RMB/W. The range of high-efficiency mono-Si (300-305W) price revision is 1.90~2.05RMB/W. The average price is lowered to 2.04RMB/W. The price range of the superior-high efficiency mono-Si (>310W) remains unchanged at 1.95~2.13RMB/W.
