Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jfwhms/global) has announced the addition of the “Global Polysilicon Market Report: 2015 Edition” report to their offering.

Polycrystallion silicon, also known as polysilicon or poly-Si, polysilicon is the purest form of silicon and the second most abundant element available in nature. It is a material consisting of small silicon crystals which differs from single-crystal silicon, used for electronics and solar cells, and from amorphous silicon, used for thin film devices and solar cells. It is used as a feedstock material in most solar energy applications. The global polysilicon market can be segmented into three divisions by purity grade: Electronic Grade, Medium Grade, and Upgraded Metallurgical Grade. The market is divided into two segments by end user types: Solar PV Industry and Semiconductor Industry.

The key factors driving the growth of the polysilicon industry are solar cell market, semiconductor market and the developing economy. Some of the noteworthy trends of this industry are decreasing production cost, decreasing polysilicon prices and strong growth of the solar PV market. However, the expansion of global polysilicon industry is hindered by rising industrial overcapacity and heavy capital requirement.

The report Global Polysilicon Market provides an in-depth analysis of the production, demand and spot prices of global polysilicon market with focus on its end markets: Solar PV Industry and Semiconductor Industry. The major trends, growth drivers as well as issues being faced by the industry are being presented in this report.
