The Present and future look at Polysilicon

High purity polysilicon is the base material predominantly for IC Integrated Circuits and Solar Panels. Presently there is a short supply for this material and due to global warming and the price of fuel, the stock of pure silicon has been steadily decreasing to a point where nowadays the contract rate is about $70/kg and the spot rate is near $200 plus.

The following pages relate to the present situation:

The Polysilicon Crunch
2006 report on the state of play with world supply of polysilicon
China's present role in Polysilicon
All of the above in one page

It is therefore noteworthy that any company able to produce pure polysilicon ingot at a reasonable price within the next few years, should be able to be successful in this market.

Traditional ways of producing polysilicon are Silicon to Polysilicon
