Report 'Thin-Film, Organic and Printable Photovoltaics: 2007-2015' Discusses How Far This New Type of Photovoltaics Would Eat into Traditional Photovo

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on November 17th, 2008

A report was released in early 2006 that examined and quantified the emerging market for thin film/flexible photovoltaic technology. It examined the virtues and disadvantages or rival research programs, such as silicon on metal, CIGS on metal and organic PV and compared the various strategies being employed to create new PV products for the mobile computer and communications, building materials, outdoor power, emergency power and other sectors. The report provided detailed forecasts of PV shipments broken out by technology type and application. It also discussed how far this new type of photovoltaics would eat into traditional photovoltaics markets.

This new report offers a fresh assessment of the space with additional details on technology, material and applications, a new market forecast as well as analysis of the strategies of leading firms active in this space. The materials platforms covered in this report include silicon, CIGS, polymers, small molecules, CdTe, and GaAs as well as various hybrid materials strategies. We also discuss emerging PV technology based on nanotechnology and so-called Third-generation Photovoltaics. Each of these technologies are reviewed in terms of their key performance characteristics (e.g., conversion efficiencies, costs per watt, etc.) and how these might improve in the future. We also look at the evolution of roll-to-roll and printing processes for TOP electronics-based PV and particular attention is given to the market implications of the ability to create PV on flexible substrates.

For all of the TOP electronics approaches to PV, we examine their commercial advantages and disadvantages and in which market segments they are likely to find a successful application. Market segments examined in detail include building integrated systems, mobile and wearable computing, central power generation, disposable electronics, portable and emergency power (including battery chargers), and military applications. The report also includes detailed eight-year forecasts of PV shipments broken out by technology type and application and discusses how far this new type of photovoltaics can eat into traditional photovoltaics markets. Assessments of all the leading firms active in the TOP PV space are also included and the coverage includes start-ups and established firms offering both materials and PV technology into this sector.
