An overview is given of materials and manufacturing issues throughout the supply chain of the solar silicon photovoltaic industry. The historical evolution of the industry and future projections are discussed. A brief review is then given of each step of the industry supply chain: polysilicon production, crystallisation and wafering, and the design and manufacturing of crystalline silicon solar cells. The chapter concludes with a discussion of emerging and future advances that will enable scaling of the industry to the terawatt level.
