Report Projects Next-Generation Solar PV Materials to Become a $2 Billion Market by 2021

NanoMarkets sees the total market value for advanced c-Si technologies rising to $613 million in 2019 and $1.57 billion by 2021

Glen Allen, VA: According to a newly released report from NanoMarkets titled,” Materials for Next-Generation Photovoltaics – 2014-2021” The total market value of emerging PV technologies -- advanced crystalline silicon cell architectures, thin films, organic and dye-sensitized technologies, and various nanomaterials -- will grow to nearly $2.1 billion by 2021, up from just $20 million today.

Details of the new report "Materials for Next-Generation Photovoltaics – 2014-2021," including a downloadable excerpt, are available at:

About the Report:

The solar panel industry now seems back on track following the boom-and-bust period, and efforts have been rebooted to commercialize the next generation of materials platforms for solar panels. The search is on once more for materials platforms that improve the conversion efficiency of solar panels. Some of these are close at hand, such as novel approaches to doping silicon panels. The thin-film PV sector is looking for success to compete against entrenched c-Si; this could come from improvements to CdTe and CIGS, while other thin-film materials are beginning to receive serious commercial attention. The solar industry also is beginning to think out of the box with a slew of entirely new nanomaterials such as quantum dots, nanowires, nanotubes and graphene.

In this report, NanoMarkets develops a roadmap for next-generation solar materials and analyzes their revenue potential over the next eight years, including a granular forecast of quantities shipped and revenues generated. The report also examines the commercialization strategies of the suppliers already actively involved in this space, as well as the opportunities emerging for start-ups.
