PHOTON discusses Asian silicon in times of the financial crisis atconference in China

(PresseBox) (Aachen, ) The recent silicon supply bottleneck has attracted many Asian companies to invest in silicon production capacities. While the mid-term prospects for solar look very good, today these newcomers are confronted with dramatically decreasing prices for silicon. At PHOTON's 8th Solar Silicon Conference in Shenzhen, China, on July 28, 2009, we will focus on "Asian silicon in times of the financial crisis" to provide an in-depth overview on these new silicon suppliers, their product offers and expansion strategies.

We have invited premier market analysts to provided overviews on silicon supply, demand and price trends. We've asked leading silicon experts to discuss the status of different silicon production technologies and will present top Asian silicon companies providing updates on their ventures.
