This brand new, independently researched report explores the technologies, players and markets of the DSSC (Dye Sensitized Solar Cells) industry (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/184859-dye-sensitized-solar-cells-technologies-markets-and-players-2012-2023.html) that has a projected market of $290 million by 2023.
Many companies are already involved in the development of DSSCs from technology start-ups to large corporations that are looking to add innovative technologies into their portfolio.
Initial products are aimed towards portable applications, starting out with portable chargers and solar bags with wireless solar keyboards but the end game for DSSCs is the ability to have these largely inexpensive solar cells incorporated into much bigger installations.
This report explores the development of the technology, analyses the major players and gives market forecasts for the next ten years. With around 88 pages and 54 figures/tables, this focused report gives in-depth insight into the DSSC industry.
