“We see our downstream customers continue to expand their capacities to address the fast-growing solar PV demand,” said Longgen Zhang, CEO of Daqo New Energy. “It’s the fourth long-term contract we signed with our customers in the fourth quarter of 2022 and it demonstrates our leadership in the polysilicon industry as a reliable and preferred supplier for many top-tier Chinese solar manufacturers.”

In October, Daqo New Energy signed a separate polysilicon supply agreement for 432,000MT of material, worth up to US$18 billion. The company also closed Q3 of 2022 with net profits close to US$1 billion. This was driven in part by the progressive drop in polysilicon production costs, as well as the increasing global demand for solar PV modules.

“We are very well positioned to greatly benefit from the healthy and sustainable growth in the solar PV industry,” Zhang added.

Daqo plans to expand further with its Inner Mongolia facility set to be complete in 2023, increasing the company’s capacity from 105,000MT to 205,000MT.

FREE WEBINAR -This special webinar will take a deep dive into the latest PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings pyramid, capturing the relative bankability status of the top 70-80 PV module suppliers globally. In addition to revealing the latest ranking of global PV module suppliers, PV Tech’s Head of Research, Finlay Colville, will show the depth of analysis and commentary included within the report for module suppliers. A key output from the webinar will be to learn which PV module suppliers have moved up the rankings pyramid in recent years and why this growth has been achieved. Conversely, some of the companies that have fallen down the rankings will be discussed, in particular those suffering from market-share losses and financial problems.
