Polysilicon or polycrystalline silicon is a highly pure form of silicon and is an essential material for photovoltaic (PV) and the electronics industry. It is widely used for manufacturing high-efficiency modules, ingots, wafers, cells, and solar power generation systems.
Polysilicon is manufactured in two forms — granular polysilicon and chunk polysilicon — depending on the production technology. Government initiatives such as tax exemption for the solar energy industry and renewable energy policies are major factors boosting demand for polysilicon over the forecast period. Moreover, according to an article published by Amplus Solar in Jan 2018, the government of India undertook major programs to promote solar energy generation such as Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, Solar Park Scheme, and Rooftop scheme.
