Polycrystallion silicon, also known as polysilicon or poly-Si, polysilicon is the purest form of silicon and the second most abundant element available in nature. It is a material consisting of small silicon crystals which differs from single-crystal silicon, used for electronics and solar cells, and from amorphous silicon, used for thin film devices and solar cells.

It is used as a feedstock material in most solar energy applications. Polysilicon can be segmented into three divisions by purity grade: Electronic Grade, Medium Grade, and Upgraded Metallurgical Grade. The market is divided into two segments by end user types: PV Industry and Semiconductor Industry.

Since the earliest iterations, the design of photovoltaic cells has evolved to a great extent. Silicon, which is also used in the microelectronics industry, is the key raw material used in the manufacturing of PVs. The report covers the concerns over base and end market of polysilicon industry on a global level along with analysis of Chinese polysilicon imports.

The key factors driving the growth of the polysilicon industry are solar cell market, semiconductor market and economic condition. Some of the READ MORE >
