Silicon is one of the most significant inorganic materials. Polysilicon or polycrystalline silicon comprises of numerous silicon crystals. Being one of the purest elements in the world, the purity of polysilicon can be as high as 99.9999999+%. Depending upon the purity levels, three types of polysilicon are manufactured viz. Electronic-grade Silicon (9N), Medium-grade Silicon (6-7N), and Upgraded Metallurgical-grade Silicon (>5N). On the industry front, polysilicon is required by 2 major sectors viz. the solar PV industry and the semiconductor industry.

This report analyzes the market size of the polysilicon industry with focus on regions including Japan and China in depth. Also, the solar PV and semiconductor industry size is discussed in detail. In addition, market dynamics such as industry trends and developments (world’s solar photovoltaic capacity surpassed 100-gigawatt, establishment of strategic alliances, formulation of dye sensitized solar cells and declining spot prices of polysilicon and solar module), growth drivers (rise in solar cell demand, growth in semiconductor market, and growing global economy) and challenges (trade dispute between Europe and China, oversupply in the industry and heavy capital requirements) are explicated.

The polysilicon industry is fiercely competitive with several international and domestic players operating in the domain. The key international players include REC, Wacker, Hemlock and GCL. Competitive landscape, profiles of major industry players along with the market outlook for polysilicon/solar PV demand and capacity are also included.
