Polysilicon is an industrial material made of purified industrial silicon containing more than 99.99% silicon, which can be divided into Metallurgical Grade Polysilicon, Solar Grade Polysilicon and Electronic Grade Polysilicon according to its purity. China is one of the world's major polysilicon producers, but still needs to import a large amount of polysilicon every year.

In 2021, China's polysilicon imports reached 114,000 tons, up 13.3% year-on-year, and the import value was US$2.04 billion, up 113.9%. In the first three quarters of 2022, China imported 64,000 tons of polysilicon, down 29.0% year-on-year, and the import value was US$1.87 billion, up 30.2% year-on-year.

The publisher analysis shows that from 2018 to 2022, the import price of polysilicon generally shows a trend of decreasing before increasing. 2019 China's average polysilicon import price is US$8.7 per kg, down 39.0% year-on-year. 2020 to 2022, China's average polysilicon import price increases continuously. 2021 China's average polysilicon import price is US$17.9 per kg, up 88.8% year-on-year. The average price of Chinese polysilicon imports in the first three quarters of 2022 is US$29.1 per kg, an increase of 83.4% year-on-year.

In 2021, China imports polysilicon from 13 countries and regions. The publisher analysis, by import volume, China's main sources of polysilicon imports are Germany, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan, China and the United States. Among them, Germany is China's largest source of polysilicon imports. 2021, China imports 51,000 tons of polysilicon from Germany, accounting for 44.9% of the total import volume, and US$980 million, accounting for 47.9% of the total import value.

China is the world's leading consumer and importer of polysilicon. The publisher expects that polysilicon, a basic material for the electronics industry and solar photovoltaic industry, will continue to rise in the Chinese market, and that China's polysilicon imports are also expected to rise in 2023-2032.

Background research defines the range of products and industries, which proposes the key points of the research. Proper classification will help clients understand the industry and products in the report.

Secondhand material research is a necessary way to push the project into fast progress. The analyst always chooses the data source carefully. Most secondhand data they quote is sourced from an authority in a specific industry or public data source from governments, industrial associations, etc. For some new or niche fields, they also "double-check" data sources and logics before they show them to clients.

Primary research is the key to solve questions, which largely influence the research outputs. The analyst may use methods like mathematics, logical reasoning, scenario thinking, to confirm key data and make the data credible.

The data model is an important analysis method. Calculating through data models with different factors weights can guarantee the outputs objective.

The analyst optimizes the following methods and steps in executing research projects and also forms many special information gathering and processing methods.

1. Analyze the life cycle of the industry to understand the development phase and space.
2. Grasp the key indexes evaluating the market to position clients in the market and formulate development plans
3. Economic, political, social and cultural factors
4. Competitors like a mirror that reflects the overall market and also market differences.
5. Inside and outside the industry, upstream and downstream of the industry chain, show inner competitions
6. Proper estimation of the future is good guidance for strategic planning.
