Photon Consulting starts solar grade silicon price index


In an effort to provide greater transparency to the photovoltaics
manufacturing industry, PHOTON Consulting has launched a paid
subscription-based service, tracking high-purity silicon prices, both
spot and contract, dubbed the PHOTON Consulting Silicon Price Index

“Rising prices, increasing price spreads and quality variation, rapid volume growth and new sales dynamics have created significant uncertainty for companies selling silicon, users purchasing silicon and investors in silicon production,” noted PHOTON Consulting Head of Silicon Research, Hilary Flynn. “We wanted to create a mechanism – a trust worthy reference service – to address this market need. The PCSPI represents a critical first step to real-time spot and contract pricing in the future and we are thrilled to be an agent for change by helping to increase pricing visibility in the silicon producer/consumer/investor universe.”
