Thin Films Photovoltaic Market Overview :

Global Thin Films Photovoltaic Market is estimated to reach $240 billion by 2024; growing at a CAGR of 32.3% from 2016 to 2024. Thin films photovoltaic (PV) cells require very little or almost no silicon as compared to crystalline PV cells. Thin films photovoltaic systems are being highly demanded globally owing to its various features such as flexibility, and shorter energy payback times as compared to crystalline PV cells. It gives better performance even in low light conditions, which has increased its dominance in the market. 


Rise in energy cost, low manufacturing cost of PV cells, and silicon shortage are the major factors driving the global thin films photovoltaic market. Moreover, increase in environment temperature due to climate change has also moved consumers towards the adoption of photovoltaic (PV) technologies. However, high cost of photovoltaic technologies may hamper the market growth. Technological advancement would provide several growth opportunities for the market in coming years.

The global thin films photovoltaic market is bifurcated by type, component, and application. The segment by type includes organic and inorganic photovoltaic. The component segment is further categorized into thin film PV cells, crystalline silicon PV cells, Tracker, Modules, and Optics. By application, the thin film photovoltaic market is segmented into residential, utility, consumer, military, and non-residential sectors. By component, the thin film PV cells accounted for the largest market share in 2016. Geographically, the market is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the world (RoW).
