Digitimes Research: Flat solar spot prices in Greater China due to long holiday
Jackie Chang, DIGITIMES, Taipei [Friday 6 April 2012]
Due to long holidays in China, solar spot prices this week (April 2-6) has remained relatively flat.
The average price of 156 multi solar cells in Greater China has been quoted around US$0.45-0.49/W. Industry sources noted that tier-one solar cell makers in Taiwan have been quoting around US$0.48-0.50/W while tier-two and tier-three solar cell makers have been quoting around US$0.46-0.48/W. In China, the price is in the range of US$0.45-0.46/W.
Spot prices of solar products in Greater China have not been changing drastically despite the April 1 incentive cuts in Germany. Nevertheless, Germany-based solar cell firm Q-Cells filed for bankruptcy this week, which may cause a ripple effect. Q-Cells is the fourth Germany-based solar firm to file for bankruptcy in recent months.
