Photovoltaic materials Market Synopsis:

Market Research Future (MRFR) proposes that the global photovoltaic materials market is slated to exhibit 8% CAGR during the forecast period (2016-2022). The augmenting concern associated with the emission of CO2 is estimated to favor the market growth. Also referred to as solar cells, photovoltaic cells are used to generate electricity from sunlight. The materials which are used in solar cells are acknowledged as photovoltaic materials. Photovoltaic materials are generally used in solar panels to harness solar energy in order to generate electric power. The most commonly used forms are copper indium, cadmium telluride, monocrystalline silicon, gallium selenide, and polycrystalline silicon. Photovoltaic materials are gaining prominence across the globe with the increasing concern regarding the environment.

Market Potential and Pitfalls:

With global warming hitting worldwide, concerns regarding environmental issues are increasing due to the increasing use of conventional energy. This has led to increased adoption of solar energy. The growing greenhouse gas emission has led to an increased demand for clean energy, thereby surging the demand for photovoltaic materials across the globe. Manufacturers are focusing on R&D activities for innovation of new products which is further contributing to the market growth. Moreover, low production price coupled with the power conversion efficiency is influencing the market growth to a large extent. The decline in PV materials prices has increased its usage across several applications. Government globally are highly investing in solar energy and are also offering schemes and incentives for the construction of buildings integrated with solar technology. Such initiatives by the government are propelling the market growth throughout the assessment period. Additionally, factors such as low maintenance and operating costs are driving the market growth.

Photovoltaic materials are gaining huge prominence owing to the growing manufacturing of solar modules. With the accelerating popularity of organic photovoltaic and dye-sensitized solar cells, the market is predicted to flourish. Also, the government across the world are aiming towards increasing the share of renewable energy, thereby fueling the market.
On the contrary, high capital cost due to high technology prices is considered one of the top barriers likely to deter the market growth across the globe. Initial expenditure during installation is another factor considered to hamper the market growth in the coming years.
