Solar Photovoltaic Material Market

Solar Photovoltaic Material Market (Material Type - Crystalline, Polycrystalline, Cadmium Telluride, and Copper Indium Diselenide; End User - Residential, Commercial, and Industrial) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2016 - 2024

Global Solar Photovoltaic Materials Market: Snapshot

The global solar photovoltaic (PV) materials market has gained significant momentum over the last few years. The rising concerns over various environmental problems, especially greenhouse gas emission and the increasing carbon footprint, have surfaced as the main factor behind the growing demand for solar PV and, consequently, solar PV materials across the world. The research activities for the innovation and development of new materials with low manufacturing cost and power conversion efficiency is increasing at a faster rate.

Going forward, the government stringent rules and regulations, increasing investment in renewable energy generation, and the reducing dependency on fossil fuels are anticipated to drive this market substantially in the years to come. The opportunity in this market was US$7.55 bn in 2015. Rising at a healthy CAGR of 11.4% between 2016 and 2024, it is anticipated to reach US$19.60 bn by the end of 2024.

Asia Pacific to Continue as Leading Regional Market for Solar Photovoltaic Materials

The Middle East and Africa, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America are the prime regional markets for solar PV materials across the world. In 2015, Asia Pacific emerged as the key contributor to the global market with a share of nearly 60%. Thanks to the high demand for solar photovoltaic installations in the power industry and in generating electricity from renewable sources, the Asia Pacific market for solar photovoltaic materials is expected to remain on the top over the next few years. China is the key domestic market for solar PV materials in Asia Pacific.

North America is another significant regional market for solar PV. On account of the exponential growth in the power industry in terms of renewable energy generation, North America is anticipated to witness an increasing demand for solar PV materials in the near future. The markets for solar PV materials in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America are also expected to exhibit stable growth over the next few years.

Demand for Polycrystalline Materials to Remain High

Crystalline, polycrystalline, cadmium telluride, and copper indium diselenide are the key materials available in the global market for solar PV materials. Among these, the demand for polycrystalline is higher than others and this scenario is expected to remain so over the next few years. Polycrystalline silicon acquired a share of more than 72% in the overall market in 2015 and is anticipated to witness a significant rise in its demand in the near future due to its cheap manufacturing process as compared to that of other materials.

Crystalline silicon is also experiencing considerable demand across the world. However, the high cost associated with it may act as a limit force in the years to come. Cadmium telluride and copper indium diselenide are cheaper and have less power conversion efficiency. Market players are performing research to increase their efficiency.

Due to the presence of a large pool of participants, the global market for solar PV materials displays a highly fragmented competitive landscape. BASF SE, Mitsubishi Material Corp., Hemlock Semiconductor Corp. LLC, LDK Solar Co. Ltd., Okmetic, Wacker Chemie AG, Applied Materials Inc., Shin-Etsu Chemicals Co. Ltd., Atecom Technology Co. Ltd., Topsil GlobalWafers A/S, Silicor Materials Inc., and Targray Technology International Inc. are some of the prime vendors of solar photovoltaic materials across the world.

Overwhelming Popularity of Renewable Energy Generation to Add Extra Stars of Growth to the Solar Photovoltaic Materials Market

The solar photovoltaic materials market will observe promising growth on the back of the rising reliance on renewable energy sources for energy generation. The increasing prevalence of pollution-related hazards around the world and the stringent rules and regulations of the government bodies will serve as vital growth attractors for the solar photovoltaic materials market.

  • Solar photovoltaic materials are prominently used for manufacturing solar cell modules. The popularity of solar cells has risen considerably over the years. In addition, the initiatives by the government bodies regarding renewable energy are observing an uptick. Densely populated countries like India and China are the forbearers in the solar energy generation sector. The vast need to generate solar energy due to the expanding population numbers in these countries will help in boosting the growth prospects of the solar photovoltaic materials market.
  • Research and development activities help in sowing the seeds of growth across the solar photovoltaic materials market. The players in the solar photovoltaic materials market invest heavily in these activities for discovering novel formulations and features that help in upgrading the quality of the materials. The players are also involved in expansion activities. All these factors increase the revenue of the players, eventually increasing the growth rate.
  • Strategic collaborations play a major role in accelerating the growth of the solar photovoltaic materials market. The players are involved in mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, and partnerships. These collaborations help in increasing the influence of the players, ultimately fuelling the growth of the solar photovoltaic materials market.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has a large impact on the growth of the solar photovoltaic materials market. The enforcement of strict lockdowns across numerous countries on the back of the rising transmission levels led to the shutting down of manufacturing facilities and production units. This factor ruined the growth of the solar photovoltaic materials market considerably.
