DuPont reports strong increase in sales volume for its PV business

DuPont's Solamet PV metallizations pastes boost the efficiency of solar cells.

US chemical company DuPont registered strong sales volume growth for its PV business in 2013 due to increased demand and market share gains. Sales volume growth, however, was »offset in part by reduced selling prices, largely from pass-through of lower metals prices.« The company’s total 2013 revenue amounted to $35.7 billion, up 3% from the prior year. Revenue for the company’s Electronics & Communications division alone, which includes its PV materials business, was down 6% year on year at $2.5 billion.
