The polysilicon price which exceeded $90/kg in the beginning of last year has currently fallen to a price level of $30/kg. In this circumstance, where sweetness and bitterness between competitive cost companies and non-competitive cost companies is clearly shown, reducing the production cost has become an essential issue for survival.
One of the Chinese Top Tier firm, Company "A" has achieved cost competitiveness by vertically integrating the polysilicon-ingot-wafer business and through economic scale expansion it is continuously lowering the production cost.
The polysilicon production cost for Company "A" in Q4 of 2009 was 41% of Q1 of the same year. The production cost was reduced by 34% owing to material cost including TCS gas cost and above 20% of production cost was reduced due to selling expense and administration expense which corresponds to depreciation cost and electricity cost.
