Executive Summary
Solar cell, also called photovoltaic cell, is a semi-conductor device that converts the light energy into the electrical energy by using the principle of photovoltaic (PV) effect. Solar cells can be broadly categorized into two type of technologies: Crystalline Si based Technology and Thin-Film based Technology.

The thin-film solar cells are referred to as second generation of solar cells, made by using several light-absorbing layers of photovoltaic materials. The thickness of thin-film layers can be about 300-350 times smaller than that of a standard silicon panel. The thin-film solar cells are considered flexible, easy to handle, lightweight, and cheaper to produce. They can be installed easily. The thin-film solar cells contain very less quantity of silicon, therefore the emission caused during their production is very low.

Thin-film solar cells have gained popularity in different industrial verticals. The major applications of thin-film solar cells are: institutional and commercial buildings with large rooftops, solar farms, forest areas, rooftop of buses, and large-sized water tanks to supply power for pumping water.

Thin-film solar cells have a long history with continuous technological developments. The thin-film solar cell market can be segmented on the basis of technology type (Cadmium Telluride (CdTe), Copper Indium Gallium Diselenide (CIGS), and Amorphous Silicon (A-Si)); installation (On-Grid, and Off-Grid); and End User (Residential, Commercial, and Utility).

The global thin-film solar cell market has increased significantly during the years 2017-2019 and projections are made that the market would rise in the next four years i.e. 2020-2024 tremendously. The thin-film solar cell market is expected to increase due to increasing demand for electricity, rising solar photovoltaic (PV) installed capacity, declining solar prices, growing use of renewable energy, integration of thin-film solar cells in electric vehicles, technological advancements associated with the thin-film solar cells, etc. Yet the market faces some challenges such as high installation cost, introduction of third generation solar cells, etc.
