Overview of Thin Film Photovoltaic Market
The growth of the market for photovoltaic cells varies nation by nation. This is primarily owing to the public support programs and variations in energy policies, particularly in case of photovoltaic. Thin film photovoltaic systems have numerous benefits in the marketplace owing to which they are being highly demanded globally. They have two primary technical advantages which make them more powerful than crystalline systems. Firstly, they exhibit enhanced low light production properties. Secondly, they exhibit an attractive temperature coefficient and this lowers the influence of high ambient temperatures on the production of energy.
Owing to less steps of production and comparatively low material input, thin film photovoltaic technologies hold an immense potential in lowering cost. Another advantage of thin film is their aesthetic appeal. Due to their homogenous and almost black appearance, thin film modules, particularly those employing copper indium gallium selenide technology, are highly utilized to build integrated PV applications globally.
The global thin film photovoltaic market is fuelled by the rising population and the increasing investments globally. In addition, strict regulations and rules imposed by governments in a number of nations will also provide impetus to the growth of this market. Furthermore, factors such as increased efficiency and low cost of thin film photovoltaic cells are also positively impacting the development of the overall market. On the other hand, the skyrocketing cost deployed in the maintenance of thin film photovoltaic systems may impede the development of the market in the coming years.
On the basis of geography, the report categorizes the market into Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). The energy demand is rising at an alarming rate which presents immense opportunities for thin film photovoltaic systems in Asia Pacific, particularly in nations such as China and India.
