The Polysilicon Market size will witness a growing demand throughout the world with a substantially higher CAGR in the forecasted timespan. This is due to the rising demand in the market for fabrication of solar cells and electronic semiconductors. Initially in the electronic industry, polysilicon was used majorly in integrated circuits. The polysilicon market tendency has now reversed with increasing solar project installations.
Asia Pacific in 2015, had occupied a major chunk of share of the polysilicon market owing to high growth of the solar energy sector, high GDP growth rates, technological advancements and ever increasing demand for consumer electronics. Some of the major producers of polysilicon are South Korea, Japan and China. North America also held significant share which is projected to grow at a high CAGR in the forecasted period. The Central & South America is anticipated to grow at a phenomenal CAGR on account of major PV installation projects over the next few years in countries such as Honduras, Brazil and Chile.
Producers use different technologies for production depending on the scale of production and end-use application. For polysilicon market, the siemens process and fluidized bed reactor (FBR) are the two main production techniques used in the production of polycrystalline silicon(poly-si). Also, the manufacturing of solar grade silicon (SG-Si) by using the FBR technology remains the most effective way for producing 8N purity poly-si. FBR process enables SG-Si manufacturing at low cost and also reduces the energy consumption by nearly 80%. Polysilicon is one of the essential element for the manufacture of solar wafers.
