It is estimated that the solar cell glass market will enter a recovery phase this year
(PRWEB) March 20, 2013
The solar cell glass market showed 6.8% de-growth in 2012 over last year. While the entire PV module production increased by about 5GW, the selling price of glass for solar cells declined by about 20%, causing market shrinkage.
Although the solar cell glass price is expected to continuously show the downward trend in 2013, the rate of decrease will be as low as 4.4%. Thus, it is estimated that the solar cell glass market will enter a recovery phase this year, reaching KRW 2.2 trillion with a 10% increase over W102012. This upward trend will continue until 2015 with an about more than 10% growth rate.
This report provides a comprehensive examination of key theories, technologies, and processes of solar cell glass. Especially, it provides analysis of glass technologies and technological issues based on solar cell type such as c-Si, a-Si, CdTe, CIGS, DSSCs.
