GCL-Poly produced 57,394 tonnes of polysilicon and 31,852 MW of wafer last year. It said the COVID-19 epidemic is generally coming under control in China, but other nations are now battling the virus. “If it comes under effective control in 1–2 months’ time, there will be sufficient time in the second half of the year to make up for the delays in the early months, and the global demand for installed capacity in 2020 is not expected to decrease,” the company said in its outlook.
