The thin-film PV (TFPV) industry is beginning to recognize that high quality encapsulation is an area of strategic importance. The market value of organic and inorganic TFPV encapsulation is forecast to grow from its current value of about USD 370 million in 2012 to close to USD 1.2 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of about 18%.

The market value of flexible glass encapsulation in TFPV is expected to grow from nearly zero today to a value of over USD 60 million by 2015 and over USD 225 million by the end of the forecast period. Multilayer barrier films in TVPF encapsulation can grow from just over USD 30 million today to just over USD 275 million in 2019. The market value of conformally-coated barriers based on ALD can grow to over USD 135 million by 2019.

The report examines which of the several emerging encapsulation technologies will be success in the PV market as well as which sectors of the market will be most receptive to them. It also looks at the product development and marketing strategies of the top players in the encapsulation materials sector, making attempt to indicate which firms are the companies to watch and which will be the possible winners and losers in the encapsulation materials universe. Additionally, the study is supplemented with granular, eight-year forecasts for the materials used for PV encapsulation, in both value and volume terms, broken out by product type and application.

Encapsulation product types covered include: rigid glass, flexible glass, multilayer thin films and laminates, conformal coatings, and metal foils.

Application sectors discussed are: thin-film silicon (TF-Si) PV, cadmium-telluride (CdTe) PV, copper-indium-gallium-selenide (CIGS) PV, dye-sensitized (solar) cell (DSC) PV, and organic PV (OPV).
