The report presents the firm`s latest analysis of the organic and hybrid organic/inorganic PV markets and provides updated forecasts of the opportunities for firms interested in this space.
In the past eighteen months OPV and DSC photovoltaic manufacturers have seen their major assumed advantages over traditional crystalline silicon and inorganic thin-film photovoltaics evaporate. The recessionary cycle has driven competing technology solutions to sharply reduce their costs relative to OPV and DSC and improvements in encapsulation have made the inorganic thin-films better contenders with respect to flexibility.
OPV and DSC will need to get creative are by taking advantage of the advantages these technologies still hold over other PV. Their flexibility will enable PV-coated fabrics and other solutions that are much more pliable than what is currently considered “flexible PV”, opening a new market niche for portable power.
And their transparency will lead to BIPV windows and other products that continue to provide visibility while still producing power and shade, opening yet another niche. In 2015 NanoMarkets expects portable power OPV and DSC applications to generate $580 million in revenues and transparent BIPV glass to produce $280 million in revenues.
In this new report NanoMarkets analyzes the OPV industry and shows which applications will preserve the OPV market as a growth business. OPV has some unique features that distinguish it from the inorganic TFPVs; features like extreme flexibility and ease of manufacturing that can allow it to enter some markets where the other PV technologies cannot.
In this report, NanoMarkets discusses how and where these distinguishing features can be turned in opportunities. We also examine where hybrid organic/inorganic PV, notably dye sensitized cells is making its mark in building integrated PV and other areas. The report also examines how and where OPV and DSC have failed to achieve success and why and what companies operating on the space can do to succeed.
This report provides NanoMarkets` latest analysis and forecasts of the opportunities available in OPV and DSC markets with forecasts of OPV materials, DSC materials, OPV devices by application and DSC devices by application included.
Profiles of Companies Active in OPV and DSC Markets Agfa, BASF, Dyesol, G24i, Global Photonic Energy, H.C. Starck, Heliatek, Konarka, Merck, Mitsubishi, Peccell, Plextronics, Solarmer, SolarPrint, Solaronix, and Sony.
