Research and Markets: Materials Markets for CIGS Photovoltaics - Now Available

Dublin, Ireland | Posted on March 26th, 2009

CIGS offers some of the brightest hopes for the future of thin-film photovoltaics (TFPV) and also some of its greatest problems. Potentially, CIGS panels could provide the high conversion efficiencies of crystalline silicon with all the advantages of a thin-film material; flexibility, manufacturability and low weight. But CIGS is also a complex material whose characteristics are not yet well understood and it is clear that the road forward for CIGS PV as a whole will be driven by developments at the material level.

The major goal of this report is to analyze and quantify the opportunities that are emerging for materials suppliers and device manufacturers as the result of both established and emerging trends in development of CIGS materials. The report focuses on the core CIGS absorber materials, but also covers materials for electrodes, encapsulation, dielectrics, etc, since all of these materials are critical to the performance of CIGS PV. The report begins with a full review of the state of the art in CIGS materials and manufacturing, but its main focus is on business cases rather than technical issues. It includes strategic profiles of leading suppliers of materials into the CIGS space and of the materials-related activities of the emerging CIGS panel makers.

This report will be invaluable reading for strategic planners and marketing managers at materials, equipment and device firms, as well as some investor organizations.

Key Topics Covered:


  • Executive Summary
  • Chapter One: Introduction
  • Chapter Two: CIGS Materials Technology
  • Chapter Three: CIGS Materials Markets and Opportunities
  • Chapter Four: Eight-Year Forecasts of CIGS PV Materials
