NanoMarkets has covered the BIPV market for more than six years; it recently published penetrating analyses of both the BIPV glass and BIPV roofing markets as well as BIPV substrates and encapsulation.
About the Report:
In this report, NanoMarkets identifies the opportunities from the fastest growing segment of BIPV; BIPV walling products. For each product type this report contains separate eight-year forecasts with breakouts by value ($ millions), volume (MW) and PV technology. Other forecasts show which types of buildings and which geographical regions will generate revenues and how this will change over time.
Among the firms discussed within the report include: BISEM, Dow Chemical, Evonik, Gloria Solar, Guardian Industries, Heliatek, Mage Sunovation, Onyx Solar, Pythagoras, RECKLI, Soladigm, Solar-Wall, Sol-Ice and Tata Steel.
Findings from the Report:
In terms of products specifically designed for BIPV walling, the most developed are BIPV curtain walls; a small niche today, although it will grow to reach around $250 million by 2016. For the next few years most of the revenues from “BIPV walls” will come from conventional PV panels disguised by architectural features or from “repurposed”
The advent of dedicated BIPV walling products is also good news for firms making flexible solar panels with CIGS and OPV/DSC technologies. Flexible panels are inherently lightweight and therefore ideally suited to wall installations. These technologies also have a smaller reduction in cell performance under indirect or shaded illumination and this again makes them highly suited to wall installations. Many of the suppliers of these types of PV panels have targeted BIPV walling and by 2016, almost 40 percent of BIPV wall products are expected to be built using CIGS or OPV/DSC.
NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging markets in energy, electronics and other areas created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts of the BIPV industry.
