  • 2. Your New Silicon Expert Guide The 2012 Who’s Who of Solar Silicon Production builds upon the widely praised Basic Edition of The Who’s Who of Solar Silicon Production (2010). The completely new 2012 edition provides you with comprehensive and up-to-date information on 143 companies in the polysilicon sector – incumbent manufacturers, new entrants and aspirants from the Americas, Europe, Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan, Russia/Commonwealth of Independent States, India and the Arabian Peninsula. This polysilicon market report again condenses numerous details from primary market re- search and secondary sources. Six chapters give you valuable insight into price movements on the spot market, new trends for polysilicon manufacturing technologies, company news, polysilicon supply in view of the shakeout of overcapacity and the future develop- ment of polysilicon demand: ► The price chapter opens The 2012 Who‘s Who of Solar Silicon Production with an analysis of the factors that have influenced the polysilicon spot price since 2010. ► The technology chapter re-assesses the technical viability and cost potential of 10 polysilicon manufacturing routes, including the dominant Siemens process and physical purification methods to obtain upgraded metallurgical-grade (UMG) silicon – all in light of the recent market development and new technological achievements. ► The company chapter covers capacity expansions and plant shutdowns, technological progress and project changes at 91 manufacturers and aspirants through concise updates, arranged according to world region and manufacturing approach. Each region is intro- duced by a brief summary of location factors and/or development trends. ► The supply chapter provides production volumes and end-of-year capacities for 82 polysilicon and UMG silicon plants and projects from 2009 through 2015. It highlights the market shares of the top ten manufacturers and the distribution of the global production volume by world region. ► The demand chapter quantifies the polysilicon demand of the semiconductor and photovoltaic (PV) industries from 2009 through 2015. In particular, it evaluates 72 ana- lyst forecasts made about the newly installed PV capacities worldwide from 2008 through 2011 and uses a proprietary approach in order to arrive at more accurate scenarios of PV demand. ► The balance chapter compares the demand scenarios with supply and discusses consequences from the supply/demand balance for market participants. The 2012 Who’s Who of Solar Silicon Production comprises 100 pages. It is offered for a price of 990 euros. At www.bernreuter.com, you will find a comfortable online order form. A NTIT Save 100 euros!

  • 3. Executive SummaryAs predicted in the Basic Edition of The Who’s Who of Solar Silicon Production (2010),oversupply led to a major shakeout in the polysilicon industry in 2011. Nearly 40 manu-facturers, most of them small and medium enterprises in China, suspended or aban-doned production. Nevertheless, the global output rose to approx. 255,000 metric tons(MT) in 2011, which exceeded demand by 25,000 MT.The oversupply situation has also had an impact on many developers of new produc- Johannes Bernreutertion processes. Due to technical problems and/or financial constraints, a dozen projectshave already failed or will hardly make it into commercial production. We havere-assessed the established Siemens process and nine alternative manufacturing routes; About the authoronly approaches based on monosilane (SiH4) – whether deposited on slim silicon rodsor on seed particles in a fluidized bed reactor – show promise as serious rivals to the Johannes Bernreuter, 47, head of BernreuterSiemens process. Research and author of the report. Bernreuter is one of the most reputableThe small crowd of companies which continues to develop or produce upgraded photovoltaic journalists in Germany because ofmetallurgical-grade (UMG) silicon has made technical progress over the last two years. his diligent research, clear style and unbiasedHowever, the sweet spot of sufficient silicon quality at low cost is very small. The market approach. He has earned several awards,prospects for UMG silicon definitely look more insecure than they did two years ago. among others the prestigious RWTH Prize for Scientific Journalism from the RWTH AachenA lot will depend on the future development of demand. With the rapid growth of the University, one of the eleven elite universitiesphotovoltaic (PV) industry, the share the semiconductor sector has in total polysilicon in Germany. Originally an associate editor atdemand is sinking below 10%. Therefore, we have taken a closer look at the 90% piece the monthly photovoltaic magazine Photon,of the pie which the PV industry will require. We have examined 72 analyst forecasts Bernreuter authored his first analysis of an up-made about global PV system installations from 2008 through 2011 and found that the coming polysilicon bottleneck and alternativeforecast average remained more than 30% below the actual results. production processes as early as 2001. In 2008 he founded Bernreuter Research to publishBased on this meta-analysis, we have developed our own demand scenarios: low, base polysilicon market reports.and high case. The low case is similar to the policy-driven scenario of the European Photo-voltaic Industry Association. It would imply that Tier 1 manufacturers alone could satisfypolysilicon demand; Tier 2 suppliers would have to exit the market. In our view, however,a combination of the base and high cases, which we call accelerating demand, is morelikely. With this scenario, supply and demand would largely be balanced through 2014.A widening gap in 2015 would indicate that a new shortage is imminent in 2016.According to this scenario, we expect that the polysilicon spot price will slowly recoveruntil 2014. Even with a new shortage, it is not conceivable that the spot price will returnto old highs. Indeed, the market price of solar modules has decreased so drastically andwill continue to do so in the future that producers will hardly be able to buy polysiliconat an exorbitant price.B E R N R E UTER RESEARC H • H u t tenst r. 10 • 97072 Wü r zbu rg • G e r many • Te l. + 49 / 931 / 784 77 81 • i n fo@ b e r n re ute r.com • w w w.b e r nre u te r.co m

The Whos Who of Solar Silicon Production, whose 2012 new edition was eagerly awaited by experts of the photovoltaic and polysilicon industries, is a rarity in the branch. Jochen Schneider CEO of Schmid Silicon Technology GmbH Like the Basic Edition, The 2012 Whos Who of Solar Silicon Production gives a detailed yet easy to follow account of pretty much everyone in the silicon game. The market analysis is very comprehensive and the assessment of the various technologies most informative, giving the reader a clear account of the state of the industry and its potential future. The perfect reference for anyone in or aspiring to enter the silicon business. Prof. Mansoor Barati Director of the Sustainable Materials Processing Research Lab, University of Toronto For our strategic business development, we rely on The 2012 Whos Who of Solar Silicon Production as the most detailed source of information on silicon production technologies. The comprehensive overview allows us to keep track both of technological competitors and customers in the solar silicon market. Jan-Philipp Mai CEO and Founder of JPM Silicon GmbH Silicor Materials relies on Bernreuter Research for highly dependable silicon industry research. Bernreuters detailed, insightful and up-to-date reports are a must-have to demonstrate your companys credibility to clients and financing partners. We look forward to continuing to reference Bernreuter Research as our preferred and recommended resource on the polysilicon industry. Christopher Angelo Senior Director of Finance at Silicor Materials Inc. The 2012 Whos Who of Solar Silicon Production is very valuable to us even though we are a semiconductor manufacturer and in no way active in the solar business.
