The PV industry this week
PV InfoLink reports that silicon prices remained stable over the week
compared to the previous period. One major transaction was at RMB 200/kg ($30.90). The weak activity in panel production, and later in cell production, extended to wafers. Purchases of wafers have dried up, forcing their manufacturers to lower prices by 10%, especially for the larger sizes (182mm and 210mm). This reduced demand is having an impact on silicon purchases.
Cell prices have also fallen slightly, partly due to pressure from high inventories and the likelihood of a deal with panel manufacturers. Panel prices have also fallen due to reduced upstream costs. However, in general, the market remains stable with high prices and low consumption.
