Monocrystalline silicon wafer prices are still deadlocked
- Mar 12, 2018 -

With the Lunar New Year will be approaching, the market wait-and-see atmosphere, silicon prices still in the seesaw stalemate, single, polysilicon price war is more and more fierce, cell prices in the past few weeks the rapid collapse of the cost line has been in the battle, the follow-up price can only be based on the decline in the prices of silicon wafer, the expected price fluctuations before the lunar year is more stable, But the cold and cheerless demand after the Lunar New Year will continue to reduce the overall supply chain price.

Silicon material

Silicon wafer manufacturers continue to pressure on the price of silicone, have shouted out about 130-140 yuan per kilogram of the target price, but the first line of silicon plant in the hands of a few inventory, still hope that the price of the year before the stability in a higher level, lest the year after the price decline more and more fierce. In silicon plant, silicon wafer factory between the two sides deadlocked situation, this week, a small amount of silicon material, a small number of single crystal materials are still maintained at 150 yuan per kilogram of high-grade price transactions.

Although the current transaction is not much, but the small amount of polycrystalline materials has begun to fall, the deal is mainly in the 140-150 yuan per kilogram between. In the late prediction, once the price of the manufacturers began to loosen, polycrystalline silicon material prices will fall faster than the single crystal materials.


Weekend Monocrystalline silicon wafer leading factory Longi suddenly announced that the price of monocrystalline silicon wafer fell to 4.8 yuan per piece, overseas 0.67 dollars, with this week's price stability in each piece 3.9-4 yuan, overseas each piece of 0.56 yuan of the price difference of the polysilicon chip again narrowed to each piece 0.8-0.9 yuan, overseas 0.11 yuan.

In Longi, the remaining second-line monocrystalline silicon wafer manufacturers to control inventory, prices have followed, but this price has been on many monocrystalline silicon wafer factory cost lines, the domestic second-line monocrystalline silicon plant in February, most of the choice to start rate to lower levels.
