Global OPV Market Opportunities Examined in New NanoMarkets

LONDON, Jun 05, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — The global organic photovoltaics (OPV) market is currently estimated at USD 4.6 million, with the figure expected to grow over the forecast period. The market expansion will be mainly driven by electronics in apparel, posters and PoP smart labels, and off-grid developing world applications. However, OPVs will remain a small player on the greater PV scene, obtaining total market shares below 1.5%.

New study “Opportunities in the Organic Photovoltaics Market — 2012” elaborated by NanoMarkets is designed to provide a market analysis of recent developments in OPV, as well as updated eight-year forecasts for OPV materials and devices. The report reviews the latest products, strategies and technical developments of the industry; examines the potential for OPV in the building-integrated and/or building-applied PV (BIPV/BAPV) sector in light of strong competition from other emerging PV technologies — dye-sensitize cell (DSC) and copper-indium-gallium-(di)selenide (CIGS) PV. The research also considers how OPV is likely to do in a world in which solar energy is not the hot topic that it was some years ago.

Materials covered include the critical components of the cells and modules: donors, acceptors, hole transport layers (HTLs), and electron transport layers (ETLs); transparent and nontransparent electrode materials; encapsulation materials; and substrates.

The OPV device markets are considered in light of the various applications they are targeted toward, including off-grid portable charging, solar shades, conventional panels and BIPV (including flexible BIPV, BIPV glass, and building-applied PV (BAPV), etc.
