The operating rates of polysilicon enterprises were basically stable.
New production capacity will be put into production in July and August, which is expected to increase the demand for silicon. The price negotiation of silicon powder (Si 99%) between polysilicon enterprises and powder mill enterprises showed that silicon metal prices were not optimistic.
The powder mill enterprises took a wait-and-see attitude and pushed for lower silicon metal prices, while large producers raised prices. Therefore, orders were suppressed.
