Green Energy Technology's Swean Lin, for one, believes they do. As executive vice president for Taiwan's largest solar wafer maker, which alone gained a 66% rise in revenue in October, Lin sees the uptick in demand as pointing to what he hopes will be a transformation in the market. He envisions a day when performance trumps the downward spiral of pricing and demand and supply return to balance.
