Silicon is the principal component of most semiconductor devices, most importantly integrated circuits or microchips. Silicon is widely used in semiconductors because it remains a semiconductor at higher temperatures than the semiconductor germanium and because its native oxide is easily grown in a furnace and forms a better semiconductor/dielectric interface than almost all other material combinations.

2013 Deep Research Report on Global and China Solar Grade Polysilicon Industry  was professional and depth research report on global and China solar grade polysilicon industry. This report has firstly introduced polysilicon definition classification industry chain etc relation information. Then introduced polysilicon manufacturing technology and process (Siemens or FBR). At the same time, introduced key processes specifications and applications. And then SumAugy statistics of Global and China major polysilicon manufacturers 2009-2016 solar grade (SG) and Electronic grade (EG) polysilicon capacity production supply demand (mainly according silicon crystalline solar cell demand and semiconductor wafer demand) shortage and polysilicon selling price cost profit Margin and production value. And also introduced international 28 and China 40 major polysilicon companies basic information, EG EG polysilicon capacity production price cost profit Margin and production value etc details information and polysilicon project Siemens CVD reactor sources or Project design and construction services partners. and also introduced polysilicon materials cost, electricity cost, Depreciation cost,Labor cost etc polysilicon manufacturing cost and cost structure (especially Cold hydrogenation for low cost polysilicon), all data include 2009-2012 history data and 2013-2016 forecast data. Finally, this report introduced 3000ton/year polysilicon project feasibility analysis and investment return analysis. Also give related research conclusions and development trend analysis of China polysilicon industry. In a word, it was a depth research report on Global and China polysilicon industry. And thanks to the support and assistance from polysilicon industry chain (polysilicon companies Solar wafer cell module companies raw materials Siemens CVD Reactors TCS STC-TCS system suppliers government related agencies etc) related experts and enterprises during QY Research Team survey and interview.

Polysilicon is the primary feedstock used for the production of crystalline silicon PV, which constituted 90 percent of global PV module production in 2013. In recent years, rapid growth of the PV market has led to the emergence of a dedicated solar polysilicon supply chain, and the solar industry now dominates global polysilicon consumption (estimated 90% in 2014). After enduring a sustained period of severe overcapacity in 2011-2013, pricing rebounded strongly in 2014, and renewed confidence in strong end-market growth in 2014-2016 has prompted the re-start of many previously shuttered plants and the resumption of capacity addition plans in 2015.
