2016 Forecast: Single Crystal Silicon Industry

Date: 2015-12-08

Based on the capacity extension of single crystal silicon by global main upstream and middle-stream manufacturers in 2015, the usage rate of single crystal silicon will ascend obviously.

The biggest act of capacity expansion of single crystal silicon was from GCL, which is world largest single crystal silicon producer. In the middle stream, most of Taiwan and South Korean energy or battery manufacturers and other main producers unhesitatingly expanded their single crystal silicon capacity since 2014.

In 2015, the usage proportion of silicone was approximately 18%, but after market of the terminal of power station gradually accepted the single crystal silicone products, the demand will recover in next year, especially those manufacturers competitively expanded their PERC technology, which applied to efficiency of the single crystal silicone battery was better than polycrystalline silicon, predicted the technique will get more mature by manufacturers in next year, that will continue to drive single crystal silicon market. Believe the year of 2016 will be turning point for single crystal silicon to open doors for them in China.

Forecast: The Installs of single crystal silicon components: 

Monocrystalline Wafer in China
Currently the top tier of monocrystalline Wafer manufacture in China were Longi, Zhonghuan, Comtecsolar, Jinglong and Solargiga Energy, these five manufacturers amounted to above two third of global market share. The Longi is the world largest Monocrystalline Wafer producer, which accounts for 25% of global market share, also several months ago, they funded 1.96 billion Yuan by offering Non-public shares to expand 2GW silicon single crystal rod and 2GW Monocrystalline Wafer, estimated at early of 2016, its capacity of Monocrystalline Wafer will hit 4.5GW, keep the leadership down the road.
