Thin Film Photovoltaic Cells Market – Overview

Evolving from the first ones, thin film photovoltaic cells of today display efficiencies that rivals that of conventional first-generation crystalline silicon solar cells. Previously, early generation amorphous silicon (a-Si) that were flexible and lightweight, provided extremely low power efficiency. This amounted only 5 to 6% of the sun’s energy to be converted into electricity.

However, slenderness of thin film photovoltaic cells ranging from few nanometers to tens of micrometers served to provide advantages of flexibility and low weight. This, along with peel-and-stick adhesive application of a-Si modules thin film solar cells does not require racking assembly.

Displaying such attributes, manufacture of building integrated photovoltaics and photovoltaic glazing material are some key applications of thin film photovoltaic cells. Structurally, thin film solar cells comprise one or more layers of photovoltaic material on a substrate such as plastic, glass, or metal.

The upcoming report on thin film photovoltaic cells market provides all-important analysis of demand drivers and growth trends that are likely to make an impact on the said market for the forecast period between 2016 and 2024. The entire analysis of thin film photovoltaic cells market is presented pictorially using an array of graphs and graphical representations.

Thin Film Photovoltaic Cells Market: Key Trends

Massive efforts to harness renewable energy, including solar energy to offset burden on non-renewable energy sources is among few key factors fuelling demand for thin film photovoltaic cells. Functionally, thin films solar cells display high absorption coefficient thus require very less amount of active material.

Among a slew of active materials, thin film solar cells based on cadmium telluride holds the leading share in thin films photovoltaic cells market. This is mainly because cadmium telluride serves as a viable low-cost alternative to conventional silicon-based photovoltaic cells. In terms of source, cadmium-telluride is produced as a byproduct of mining, refining, and smelting of zinc, copper, and lead.

Besides this, cadmium-telluride based thin film photovoltaic technology is economical in terms of water use. Among all solar energy technologies, cadmium telluride requires least amount of water for energy production.

Conversely, electricity generated using cadmium-telluride based photovoltaic cells is expensive. So much so, electricity generated from cadmium-telluride based photovoltaic cells is found to be nearly equal in cost to that generated using fossil fuels.
