Free Market Analysis


Organic Photovoltaic industry is a rapidly developing industry that is witnessing a paradigm shift from research phase towards commercialization owing to growing demand for eco-friendly photovoltaic technology. The organic solar cells provide a way to transform the solar energy into the electric form. Organic solar cells are more beneficial than conventional solar cells as they can be easily converted into different shapes and colors that make them a preferred choice when the application focuses more on design and flexibility rather than the efficiency. Low efficiency and smaller life span of organic solar cells are two key restraining factors posing a barrier towards the development of organic solar cells. Research institutes and companies are extensively investing in the research and development of organic solar cells. Over the past decade companies have strived to improve the efficiency levels to make it at par with conventional solar cells. The companies such as Heliatek GmbH and Solarmer Energy, Inc. have marked remarkable growth in terms of technology development. Organic PV market involves substantial capital investment in research and development owing to its nascent phase.  

The companies involved in organic solar cell manufacturing can be basically classified in to two types. The first type consists of the large chemical manufacturing companies such as Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd. and BASF SE that uses their chemical manufacturing expertise for the development of the base material (organic polymer) that is used in organic solar cell manufacturing. These companies have adopted forward integration between supplier’s side to the manufacturing side. The second type of companies consists of the small manufacturers such as Heliatek GmbH and Solarmer Energy, Inc. that are completely focusing towards the development of the organic solar cells and depends on their research labs and other companies for the supply of the raw material. The companies have formed collaboration with other companies and research institutes that has enabled them to get both technology and raw materials at a lower cost. 

The major market share is divided among the companies based in France, Germany and the United Kingdom in Europe. These companies are taking the advantage of rapidly developing solar industry in Europe. The tax benefits and the subsidies received by the manufacturer and the consumer further boosts the organic solar cell market. The North American market consists of small companies from the United States that have formed collaboration with the universities and research institutes for organic solar cell development. In Asia Pacific the market is dominated by the larger companies from Japan. Key participants in this market include Heliatek GmbH, Solarmer Energy, Inc., BELECTRIC OPV GmbH, Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd., Disa Solar, New Energy Technologies, Inc. and Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation.

Currently, the organic solar cells are majorly used in the Building integrated Photovoltaic applications. The other applications for the organic solar cells include the use of organic solar cells in mobile applications, conventional solar and defence based applications. The mobile applications include the use of organic solar cells in portable devices and vehicles. These portable devices consist of solar bags, laptops, mobiles and tablets. The organic solar cells can also be used over surface of vehicles to power the small devices that are used in the vehicles. The defence based applications include the use of organic solar cell skins over the surface of small military equipments.
