Polysilicon Market Overview


Polysilicon Market is expected to grow at a CAGR 4.20% during the forecast 2022-2030. The polysilicon market is a very high grade polycrystalline which is a form of silicon and has semiconductor like properties it is used in semiconductor electronic devices it is mainly used as a raw material in building all the solar powers generations and the electronics industries due to the semiconductor properties of polysilicon it is used to make many electronic devices such as photovoltaic tanners there are other applications of polysilicon such as electronic gates integrated circuits resistors and conductors among others.

The manufacturing of polysilicon is done through different processes three of these processes are the Siemens process, fluidized bed reactor (FBR) process, and upgraded metallurgical grade silicon process. The FBI process that has been discussed earlier is a new emerging technology so it is a low-cost alternative to the Siemens process.


COVID 19 Analysis


The global pandemic of the coronavirus has affected the market in all negative ways. The current situation has lowered the market share and demand for semiconductor electronic devices where polysilicon is used. Due to the current situation and lock down the markets are still shut hence the profit level steeps downwards. The attention has been drawn towards the health sector and people normally do not prefer getting out of the house other than for being treated. Hence all these distribution channels that have been shut down bring the market to its lowest pricing.


All this is thought to be over as soon as people start vaccinating at a larger level.


Market Dynamics


Drivers


The polysilicon market is growing tremendously in the global market. Due to the rapid increase in the number of solar TV installations. Also, there is a rising demand for electronic devices all over the globe due to the modern era. People are switching more and more to newer technology. All this is driving the police silicon market to grow up. It is believed that in the upcoming year it will grow even further. It is also thought that government subsidies that are being given to the people make it more affordable in urban as well as semi-urban areas to buy new semiconductor material electronic devices. This is how to boost the market of polysilicon during the forecasted period.


Opportunities


The polysilicon market is growing tremendously in the global market. There are videos of opportunities for the further growth of polysilicon in the forecasted period. The First opportunity includes more and more use of electronic grade polysilicon in the manufacturing of electronic circuits and power conversion devices. This acts as an opportunity if the use of polysilicon continues to grow in all these appliances. Other opportunities include the growing population, improved living standards, and urbanizations which are leading to increased demands for power and it also offers new creative opportunities for the players who are working in the field of the polysilicon market.


Restraints


The polysilicon market is growing tremendously in the global market. But with the positive comes the negative hence there are many hindrances on the part of the growth of the polysilicon market. One major obstacle in the path of the polysilicon market is the high capital investments that are required to set up polysilicon production plants. The polysilicon manufacturing process also costs a lot of money. Not every businessman wants to invest in something new and take the risk.


Value Chain Analysis


The polysilicon market is growing tremendously in the global markets due to its high-grade crystalline form of silicon. Possibly with semiconductor-like material properties makes it best for use in all the solar power and electronic industries. Policy liking is also used to make photovoltaic panels. Polysilicon is also used to make electronic gates integrated circuits resistors and conductors.

Recent Developments



  • October 2021- Reliance Industries announced a planned, deliberate acquisition in the contract with a Norway-based maker of solar-grade polysilicon at a price of USD777 million, i.e., Rs 5,880 cr from its Chinese owner. REC Solar Holdings has three manufacturing plants - one in Singapore making PV cells and modules and two in Norway for making solar-grade polysilicon. The firm built 25 years back has been acquired from China National Bluestar (Group) Co Ltd. Reliance became the firm Indian firm to own a facility, which produces solar-grade polysilicon. Solar grade polysilicon is basically a black material seen in solar panels and is used in almost all solar panels.

  • September 2021- a Chinese manufacturer of solar panels, JinkoSolar Holding Co., announced funding of USD500 million to develop a Vietnam facility to move some components out of China. The firm announced the funding right after it verified that the U.S. stopped some panel imports as the Biden administration cracks down on purported labor exploits in China’s Xinjiang region, where the major part of global solar-grade polysilicon is produced. The new plant is projected to be functioning in the first quarter of 2022 and has a yearly capacity of 7 gigawatts. The plant will make panel components, including wafers and ingots.

  • There are subsidies in the semi-urban and urban areas which makes it much more affordable for people to buy newer technologies and its growth increases.

  • Polysilicon market revenue is growing day by day which is noted from the data of polysilicon market analysis.

  • Different properties of polysilicon have made it rise in the market for example polysilicon structure. Polysilicon Market Outlook seems just fine and the polysilicon news is covering the pages of media for its properties.
