Strategic Analysis of the Global Photovoltaic Materials Market : Decreasing Grid Parity of Solar Energy to Spur Demand

Market consolidation in Europe and North America is due to increasing imports from Asia-Pacific, a result of the over-supply of materials manufacturing. The largest market, APAC constitutes over 70% of global PV materials consumption, yet growing adoption of premium products such as BIPV in Europe and NA is expected to boost revenues. This study explores the current status and future prospects of the global photovoltaic (PV) materials market. It analyzes unit shipment and revenue generated from frontsheets, backsheets, and encapsulants from 2012 to 2022. The impact of regulations; product, material, and technology trends; and market drivers and restraints is provided along with an evaluation of the value chain and distribution channels.

Key Findings

1 A major factor that is driving the adoption of photovoltaic (PV) modules is the significant decrease in cost ($/watt). This can be attributed to the drastic reduction in material prices during the last to years. For instance, the cost reduced by more than % from 2009 to 2014.

2 The adoption of patterned anti-reflective coated (ARC) glass is likely to gain momentum in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region as it offers superior efficiency compared to only ARC glass. In Europe and North America (NA), the adoption of patterned ARC glass is approximately % of the total frontsheets market.

3 Polyolefin (PO) film is likely to grow the fastest within the encapsulant segment during the forecast period owing to its superior performance in terms of light transmissibility, adhesion to substrates, and durability. For instance, the percentage share of PO films is likely to increase from % to % from 2015 to 2022.

4 PET backsheets are expected to grow the fastest within the backsheets market. This can be attributed to their superior price-performance index compared to PVF and PVDF-based backsheets, which are currently dominating the market in terms of demand.

5 Within the backsheets segment, fluoride-based backsheets dominate the NA and APAC markets; however, PET-based backsheets are expected to gain market share owing to their superior price-performance index.
