"Rapid growth in solar PV and electronics industries drives the polysilicon market"

The global polysilicon market is estimated to reach USD 8.90 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 13.00%. Increasing consumer awareness coupled with government initiatives for sustainable energy is fueling the growth of solar PV installation across the world. China, Japan and U.S. collectively accounted for two thirds of the global solar PV market.

Polysilicon is the building block for more than 90% of the photovoltaic solar panels globally, and therefore the growth of the solar PV industry is subsequently driving the demand for polysilicon. Moreover, polysilicon also used as a key raw material to manufacture electronic chips.

Hence, the increasing demand for semiconductors in data processing and communication devices, such as tablets and smartphones is driving the demand for polysilicon. However, the requirement of high capital expenditure for the establishment polysilicon production plants, creates high entry barriers for the smaller players, which in turn discourages market growth. Moreover, declining prices and anti-dumping policies in China are the major challenges for polysilicon manufacturers.

"Solar PV industry: The fastest growing segment in the polysilicon market"

The solar PV industry is the fastest growing end-use industry in the global polysilicon market. Increasing consumer awareness towards sustainability coupled with government incentive programs, fuels the demand for solar PV, globally. Moreover, the solar PV market demand is strengthened due to the policy of implementation of reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by the governments of U.S., China and Japan.

Polysilicon is the initial building block to manufacture solar wafers, and, the growth of crystalline solar PV installations across the world, drives the consumption of silicon wafers, which in turn drives the demand for polysilicon, globally.

"Rising demand for solar PV installation in the emerging markets of the Asia-Pacific region is one of the major drivers of the polysilicon market"

In 2015, the Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest market share, and is estimated to remain the market leader during the forecast period, 2016 to 2021. High growth in both, the solar PV and electronics wafer manufacturing industries in China, Japan, India, and South Korea, is increasing the demand for polysilicon in both, the solar PV and semiconductor industries.

The global market size of polysilicon is estimated to reach USD 8.90 Billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 13.0%. The market is primarily driven by the rapid growth of the key end-use industries, such as solar PV and electronics. However, the price decrease and anti-dumping policies hinder the growth of the global polysilicon market.

Polysilicon is used in end-use industries such as solar PV and electronics. In 2015, the solar PV sector accounted for the largest market share among the end-use industries, both in terms of volume and value. Moreover, this segment is expected to register the highest CAGR, during the forecast period.

The growth of this segment is primarily attributed to the increasing demand for solar PV installation across the world, which in turn drives the consumption of polysilicon. Besides the end-use industry, the global polysilicon market is segmented into chunks, granules and rods, on the basis of forms.

The Asia-Pacific region, North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa & South America are considered to be the main polysilicon markets for the report. The Asia-Pacific region is leading the global polysilicon market, both, in terms of market size and growth rate. The rising demand for polysilicon in this region is mainly driven by its huge demand for solar PV installation in China, Japan and India. North America was the second largest market for polysilicon in 2015. Increasing solar PV installation in the U.S. is supplementing the demand for polysilicon in the North American region.

Polysilicon Market

The global polysilicon market is growing at a moderate rate, and the high capital expenditure required to establish a polysilicon facility is one of the key factors hindering market growth. This creates a huge entry barrier for the new entrants in the global polysilicon market, which in turn discourages competition and lowers overall market growth.

GCL-Poly Energy Holdings Limited (Hong Kong), Wacker Chemie AG (Germany), OCI Company Ltd. (Korea), Hemlock Semiconductor Corp. (U.S.), REC Silicon ASA (Norway), Daqo New Energy Corp. (China) and Tokuyama Corporation (Japan) are the leading companies, with an excellent foothold in the global market. These companies are expected to account for a significant market share in the near future. Other major manufacturers of polysilicon are SunEdison, Inc. (U.S.), Woongjin Polysilicon Co. Ltd. (Korea) and Activ Solar Gmbh (Austria).
