While China polysilicon industry expands fast in the past years, the technology, management level and production efficiency also improve greatly. Presently, the production cost of China leading domestic polysilicon manufacturers has been reduced largely. Production cost of GCL-Poly, Daqo, TBEA, Sichuan Yongxiang and Asia Silicon is lower than 11-13 USD/kg, which is lower than that of Wacker, OCI, Hemlock, etc and equal to that of enterprises adopting silane fluidized bed, e.g. REC and SunEdison. However, the cost of other domestic enterprise is high up to 16 USD/kg. By the end of 2015, the number of polysilicon manufacturers decreases from 80 in 2011 to less than 20. Leading enterprises are GCL-Poly and China Silicon Corporation Ltd.
