Global Polysilicon Market: Soaring Valuation to Reach US$ 11.8 Billion by 2028, Fueled by Solar Energy and Electronics Demand


Polysilicon, a critical component in solar photovoltaic cells, is a high-purity form of silicon used to convert sunlight into electricity. Its exceptional semiconductor properties make it ideal for solar panels, enabling efficient energy conversion. As renewable energy gains momentum, the demand for polysilicon continues to rise, driving advancements in clean and sustainable power generation.

The global polysilicon market is anticipated to hold a valuation of US$ 8.5 Billion in 2022, and progress at a steady CAGR of 5.6% to attain an estimated net worth of US$ 11.8 Billion by 2028. The widespread installations of solar photovoltaics (PV) are expected to drive the demand for silicon products.

As the popularity of solar energy generation increases, demand for solar-grade polysilicon products is also expected to see a major rise over the forecast period of 2022 to 2028. Rising demand for electronics and semiconductors is also set to propel sales of electronics-grade polysilicon materials.
