Polysilicon report with unique features

  • The market chapter opens The Who's Who of Solar Silicon Production with a survey of capacity additions across the world regions, analyzes the impact of the international financial crisis, identifies potential winners among the manufacturers, and provides a global supply/demand scenario for the polysilicon/UMG silicon market through 2012.
  • The technology chapter examines 9 alternatives to the standard Siemens process in terms of technical viability and potential cost. In particular, the prospects of UMG silicon have been thoroughly analyzed.
  • Each company profile in The Who's Who of Solar Silicon Production contains information on the foundation and background of the company, its web site, shareholders, factory location, start of construction and production, reactor suppliers and engineering companies, the amount of investment, production technology, manufactured polysilicon volumes from 2006 through 2008 (for companies already in production), and capacity forecasts by the end of 2012.
  • Project reviews cover companies at an earlier stage – usually during project development. The reviews provide the most important data like factory location, planned capacities and start of production.
  • Companies that develop new process technologies are a special focus of the report.  They are portrayed in a full profile, including a detailed description of the novel produc­tion process, based on extensive patent research.
  • 8 regional maps with company locations and a list of 56 equipment suppliers and engineering companies supplement the polysilicon report.
