OPV Market & Technologies Reviewed in New IDTechEx Study Published at MarketPublishers.com06 Jun 2012 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The organic photovoltaics (OPV) market is showing signs of steady growth and is forecast to reach USD 630 million by 2022. OPVs bring lots of attributes to the market like excellent form factor, good performance under indoor lighting conditions, low capital expenditure, potentially very low energy production costs using printable plastics.
However, not all is well with OPVs. The efficiency levels are low, despite the fact that the active semiconductor can be synthesised from many different molecular and polymeric materials. The constituent materials are still in low-volume production and therefore command high prices.
New market research study “Organic Photovoltaics: Technologies, Markets & Players 2012-2022” prepared by IDTechEx provides a detailed assessment of the technology and markets for OPVs, which are being used where conventional PV cannot go, changing the value-added opportunity.
The report develops technology roadmaps or guidelines, which forecast improvements in module efficiency, lifetime and costs over the next decade. They provide a practical insight into how the technology is likely to evolve. It also assesses the merits of OPV technologies for a diverse range of market segments, including automotive, posters and point-of-purchase (PoP) advertisement, apparel, customer electronics, off-grid applications for the developing world, power generation, and building integrated photovoltaics.
