Chinese suppliers of polysilicon production equipment, such as Sunpower Group and Duble, are winning big contracts for new domestic polysilicon projects from GCL-Poly and others.

In contrast, U.S.-based GT Advanced Technologies, once the provider of a row of hydrochlorination reactors to Chinese polysilicon plants, seems to have lost out on the new investment wave. Johannes Bernreuter, head of Bernreuter Research, has commented on this trend on LinkedIn.
