With 8.1% CAGR, Photovoltaic Market Share to Surpass USD 113.1 billion
Photovoltaic Market with COVID-19 Impact, by Component (Modules, Inverters), Material (Silicon, Compounds), Installation Type (Ground Mounted, BIPV), Application
The solar industry has witnessed various fast-paced technological developments in the past few years. Perovskite is the newest solar material whose crystal structure is good for solar absorption. Perovskite cells also work better than silicon at lower lighting intensities, on cloudy days or indoors, thus enabling higher conversion efficiency. The main benefit of making solar cells from perovskite is that the material is cheap and abundant and could be used to produce low-cost solar power. Perovskite solar cells can also be produced in very thin layer architectures with high degrees of transparency, which leads them to a variety of novel applications, including building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) projects and flexible panel designs. Research is underway to club perovskite and silicon cells together to achieve even greater efficiency. These solar cells are called tandem solar cells. Also, increasing demand for passivated emitter and rear cell (PERC) modules—a technology that aims to achieve higher efficiency than standard solar cells by adding a dielectric passivation layer on the rear of the cell—is likely to offer growth opportunities for the PV market. Further, demand for half-cell PV modules has been gaining traction for the last few years. Half-cell modules have solar cells that are cut in half to improve the module's performance and durability. When solar cells are halved, their current also gets split, so the resistance losses get lowered, and hence, the cells can produce more power.

The photovoltaic market for half-cell type is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Half-cell modules have solar cells that are cut into halves to ensure improved performance and durability of these modules. This technology performs exceptionally well in low-light situations. Half-cell panels have small-sized cells, which reduces mechanical stress on the panel. Hence, the technology is less susceptible to micro-cracking due to the smaller size of the solar cells. Thus, half-cell modules have outstanding durability and long-life performance. These factors are expected to drive the half-cell type during the forecast period.
