Glen Allen, Virginia (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has announced the addition of three new reports to the firm’s publishing schedule that address emerging photovoltaics (PV) markets. The reports titled, “CIGS Photovoltaics Markets – 2012”, “Smart Coatings and Photovoltaics 2012” and “Transparent Conductors in Thin Film and Organic Photovoltaics – 2012” address key growth segments in a sector facing uncertainty due to declining subsidies, oversupply and falling prices.
Details about the reports are available at: http://www.nanomarkets.net
About the Reports:
“CIGS Photovoltaics Markets – 2012” (http://nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/cigs_photovoltaics_markets_2012) is the latest in NanoMarkets’ ongoing series of industry reports on CIGS markets. Applications sectors covered include rigid panels (conventional and BIPV), flexible PV, portable PV and BIPV glass. The report also includes in-depth analysis of the latest trends in CIGS manufacturing and their market impact. The realistic eight-year forecasts in this report are broken out by application sector and by type of deposition/manufacturing. Both revenue and volume (MW) forecasts are included.
The report also discusses the strategies of important suppliers of both CIGS panels and materials. Companies mentioned include: 3M, American Elements, Ascent, Avancis/Saint Gobain, Bosch, CIS Solartechnik, Daiyang Metal, Dow Chemical, DuPont, Flisom, Fujifilm, Global Solar, GroupSat Solar, HelioVolt, Honda Soltec, Indium Corporation, ISET, Istar Solar, Jenn Feng, Nanoco, Nanosolar, Odersun, Sigma-Aldrich, Solar Frontier, Pfister Energy, Solarion, Solar Frontier, SoloPower, Sputtering Materials, Shurjo Energy, Solibro, Sulfurcell, Sunshine PV, Telio, TSMC/Stion, Umicore, Wuerth Solar and others
“Transparent Conductors in Thin Film and Organic Photovoltaics – 2012” (http://nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/transparent_conductors_in_thin_film_and_organic_photovoltaics_2012) examines the changing opportunities for different kinds of transparent conductors in the TFPV and organic PV industry.
This report considers how transparent conductors will find markets and help create value for suppliers of leading edge PV technologies under the changed circumstances that PV faces today in which government subsidies are under threat and there are huge pressures to reduce TFPV costs to make it competitive with c-Si PV and with other sources of energy in general. Taking into account the new dynamics of the TFPV and OPV industry, this report identifies where transparent conductor firms can generate business revenues, both from the older segments of the TFPV/OPV industry and from emerging segments, such as BIPV glass.
This report covers the use of transparent conductors in thin-film Si, CIGS, CdTe, OPV, and DSC and includes a discussion of how both established transparent conductor technology and the latest transparent conducting nanomaterials can make money in the PV market. The report includes an eight-year forecast of the markets broken out by type of PV technology and type of transparent conductor material. In addition, the report discusses the strategies of key firms to watch in this important sector.
Smart Coatings and Photovoltiacs 2012 (http://nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/smart_coatings_and_photovoltaics_2012)
In this report, NanoMarkets examines the potential for self-cleaning, self-healing, electrochromic and thermochromic coatings in the PV applications over the next eight years. It includes an assessment of where revenue generation will occur and which companies are likely to be the winners and losers in this space. The report also includes a detailed eight-year forecast of smart coating usage in the PV space, broken out by coated area and market value.
NanoMarkets has been covering the markets for PV materials for almost seven years and believes strongly that there are now growing opportunities to sell smart coatings into the PV sector. This report considers how smart coatings can create value for the PV industry under the changed circumstances that PV faces today, in which government subsidies are under threat and there are huge pressures to reduce PV costs across the industry.
Among firms discussed in this report are, Bayer Material Science, Cardinal Glass, Corning, Gentex, Nippon Sheet Glass, Nissan, PPG, Peer, SAGE Electrochromics, Saint-Gobain, and Soladigm.
NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging market opportunities in energy, electronics and other markets created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts in these areas and has been covering PV markets for six years.
