Spot prices for solar polysilicon have plummeted to roughly $15/kg in China, according to Digitimes, while contract prices continue to hover around $20/kg. Those numbers suggest the losses incurred by local polysilicon vendors such as LDK and Yingli (YGE) are about to worsen. Western producers such as MEMC (WFR) have been estimated to have a variable cost around $25/kg. (anti-dumping probe)
