  • n-tech Research

This report identifies the current and future commercial potential for DSC and pinpoints the opportunities that n-tech sees emerging over the next decade.  n-tech believes that the use of perovskites for DSC cells and DSC’s cost/performance advantages in markets that have traditionally been dominated by amorphous silicon (a-Si) will boost DSC revenues.  The report also indicates that there is now a strong incentive to invest in the future of DSC technology. The report shows how the latest developments in both DSC materials and cell design is moving DSC towards significant deployment. This new study also contains detailed ten-year market forecasts of DSC in revenue and volume terms with breakouts by end-user sector and by materials used. In addition, the report contains strategic profiles of the leading firms in the DSC space including an assessment of their marketing and manufacturing strategies.  Companies discussed in report include 3G Solar, BASF, Dyesol, Exeger, Fujikura, G24 Power, Merck, Nissha Printing, Oxford Photovoltaics, Peccell, Solaronix, Sony, Umicore and others.
