Polysilicon prices on the rise amid n-type shortage

Solar-grade polysilicon prices, particularly in the n-type category, have witnessed a notable uptick, according to the latest report from the Silicon Industry Branch of the China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association.

Compared to January 17, polysilicon prices have ticked up a bit this week, especially for n-type material. P-type material prices are holding steady but seeing an overall upward shift.

According to Solarbe analysts, there’s a shortage of n-type products across polysilicon manufacturers, driving up prices. To ease inventory pressures, some manufacturers are trying mixed-bag selling strategies, causing a slight bump in p-type prices.

Looking forward, as n-type production increases, sustaining higher prices might be tough, and the n-p price gap is expected to widen.

This price hike in n-type silicon is also prompting some crystal-pulling and slicing companies to try raising their prices.

However, with n-type cell prices going down, silicon wafer prices are still up in the air, depending on power plays in different segments.
