The global polysilicon market is estimated to reach USD 8.90 Billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 13.00% from 2016 to 2021. The main objective of the study is to define, describe, and forecast the polysilicon market on the basis of form, end-use industry, and region. This report includes detailed information about the major factors (drivers, restraints, opportunities and industry specific challenges) influencing the growth of the market. The report strategically analyzes the market segments with respect to individual growth trends, growth prospects, and contribution to the total market. The report includes an analysis of the polysilicon market by form (chunks, granules and rods), by end-use industry (solar PV and electronics) and by region (Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America and MEA & SA). The market size of polysilicon is estimated, both in terms of volume and value. The base year considered for the study is 2015, while the forecast period is from 2016 to 2021. The polysilicon market is driven by the increasing growth of its major end-use industries, such as solar PV and electronics.

Both, the top-down and bottom-up approaches have been used to estimate and validate the size of the global polysilicon market and to estimate the size of various other dependent submarkets. Extensive secondary sources, directories, and databases such as Hoovers, Bloomberg, Chemical Weekly, Factiva, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), International Energy Agency (IEA), Securities And Exchange Commission (SEC), and other government and private websites are involved in order to identify and collect information useful for this technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of the global polysilicon market.

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).
