Nanocomposite solar cell market forecast by Fact.MR

Market share analysis of nanocomposite solar cells based on application and region is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) application dominates with 72.6% market share in 2022.

Why is the Popularity of Nanocomposite Solar Cells Rising Rapidly?

“Advancement of Technologies in Solar Panels to Drive Market Growth”

Over the past few years, the solar business has experienced rapid technological advancements. The most recent solar material with a suitable crystal structure for light absorption in perovskite solar cells. These perovskite cells outperform silicon in lower lighting levels, on hazy days, or indoors, allowing for higher conversion efficiencies.

The fundamental advantage of using perovskite to create solar cells is that it is an affordable, plentiful material that has the potential to generate cheap solar power. Owing to their attribute of integration with thin layer panels with high levels of transparency, perovskite solar cells are well suited for several cutting-edge uses such as building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) projects for commercial and residential purposes.

“EV Vehicles Supporting VIPV to Create Consistency in Demand”

The integration of solar modules holds excessive potential for the EV transport sector. Around 29% of CO2 is emitted by trucks and vans from the entire transport system. Integrated solar panels reduce a lot more CO2 emissions, and operating cost is also reduced by providing electricity for air conditioning systems.

Buses have a large roof area that becomes easier for integrated photovoltaic systems to provide up to 100% of HVAC system energy, which is helpful when the engine is off. Due to the low energy consumption of recreational vehicles, photovoltaics can provide an additional electricity source for optimal operation.

Owing to the high demand growth for electric vehicles, there are ample opportunities for nanocomposite solar cell manufacturers to integrate panels onto vehicles, which will lead to higher revenue generation.

“Expansion of Solar Systems in Residential Sector to Fuel Market Growth in Future”

The residential segment is anticipated to showcase lucrative opportunities owing to consumer inclination towards renewable sources of energy. Also, driven by the recent decrease in the price of PV systems across the globe. These systems are put on rooftops and other locations where there is enough sunlight to meet the home's electrical needs.

Installing a solar system at home is much more beneficial in various ways such as reliable energy sources, low maintenance costs, economic savings, and many more.

The market for PV systems in residential applications is anticipated to increase as governments across nations provide incentives and tax rebates to residential users to install PV systems. Governments are continuously drafting laws to make grid connections for solar installations convenient.

Why are CdTe Nanocomposite Solar Cells Most Widely Used?

Solar panels have been an adequate and non-polluting means of producing energy. Due to the prolonged lifecycle of panels, low weight-to-volume ratio, and inexpensive production of silicon semiconductors, the CdTe segment is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period.

CdTe of higher quality is used in thin film solar PV panels that have higher space efficiency than other solar PV panels. Also, they are cheaper than other products and it becomes easier to produce energy. In solar farms, thin-film photovoltaic cells (TFPV) are most widely used in the U.S. and China, in particular. Due to the high starting cost of monocrystalline silicone solar cells, end users are focusing on thin film silicon solar cells, which is further accelerating the growth of the market.

Thus, the integration of CdTe nanocomposite solar cells has increased steadily in the recent past, surpassing a market valuation of US$ 1.6 billion in 2021. Furthermore, with the surging global solar panel market, demand for CdTe material nanocomposite solar cells is predicted to expand 3.7X by the end of 2032.
