Photovoltaic Materials Market Information- by Type (Crystalline Materials, Thin Film, and others), by End-user (Utility, Commercial and Residential) and by Region – Forecast to 2022

Synopsis of Photovoltaic materials Market:


Globally, Photovoltaic Materials Market is growing at a CAGR of 8% during forecasted period (2016-2022). Photovoltaic it converts sunlight into electricity. It offers a practical and sustainable solution to the increasing globally energy demand. 

The PV cells are made of semiconductor materials. The major types of materials are crystalline and thin films, which vary from each other in terms of light absorption efficiency, energy conversion efficiency, manufacturing technology and cost of production. Rising concern of emission of CO2 and sustainable energy production can only be expected if the cost can be considerably reduced as well as use of renewable energy source will aid the market growth for the forecasted period. Additionally, with rising awareness about green trends, the future will lie in technologies that offer enhanced energy-efficient solutions at a low cost. Manufacturers who offer products with optimum performance while remaining price-orientated will be poised to gain substantial market share. 

However, the market will be effected due to PV materials as they are most expensive form of renewable energy today, the feedstock problem and technologically limitations of crystalline cells. Owing to this the market will be hindered for the forecasted period. 

Globally, Photovoltaic Materials Market was valued at USD 15 billion in 2016 and is likely to reach USD 25 billion in 2022, expanding at CAGR of 8% between 2016 and 2022. Asia-pacific region was the leading photovoltaic materials market with an estimated highest market size and is projected to touch down billion tons in 2017. North America region is the second largest Photovoltaic Market in 2016.  The U.S. has represented the largest market in 2016 and is expected to reach in billion by 2022 due to stringent regulation, technological advancement and increasing concerns of global warming are the key drives in this region. Middle East and Africa are one of the fastest growing market.
