Polysilicon is used as a raw material by electronics and photovoltaics industry. Both these end-use industries have significantly driven the demand for polysilicon and are among some of the largest end-use industries around the globe. In the photovoltaics (PV) sector, polysilicon is used in the manufacturing of solar cells or wafers. Poly-Si is a unit building block for PV cells as it has excellent properties similar to a semiconductor-like materials.
The global solar installations in 2017 surpassed 100 GW for the first time ever. This phenomenon has raised the polysilicon and wafer manufacturing ranking. Though the solar installation has grown globally on account of higher demand for the renewable energy, the polysilicon market witnessed over supply in 2017. This weak demand came through China due to the feed-in tariff deadline and lack of transmission line in Western part of China from the sunnier regions.
