Next-Generation Solar Materials Sector Investigated & Forecast by NanoMarkets in New Report Published at

05 Sep 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The photovoltaics (PV) boom has renewed efforts to commercialize the next-generation materials platforms used in solar panels. Recently, there has been a rebirth of the solar panel industry; nevertheless, the majority of the surviving companies are Chinese firms producing conventional crystalline silicon (c-Si) panels.

With the solar industry currently again on track; the key industry related issue is the search for materials platforms able to improve the conversion efficiency of solar panels. Some of solutions are close at hand, for instance, new approaches used to dope silicon panels. Meantime, the thin-film PV sector is searching for its next success after CdTe; it could probably be CIGS, however, there are also a number of other complex materials, which are currently under development for next-generation thin-film solar and which are also now beginning to attract higher commercial attention. A slew of entirely novel nanomaterials including nanowires, quantum dots, graphene and nanotubes finds application in the solar industry. Novel materials offer radical novel ways to spur the performance of the electrode, photoactive and absorber layers in next-generation solar panels.

New cutting-edge research study “Materials for Next-Generation Photovoltaics – 2014-2021” worked out by NanoMarkets LC offers a close look at the scenario in the next-generation solar materials sector.

The cutting-edge study provides a roadmap for next-generation solar materials as well as gives a granular analysis of the market landscape and revenue potential, and also defines the major market growth prospects for 2014-2021. Besides, it contains statistics on materials shipments, looks at the competitive scenario, uncovers important details on the top players in the next-generation solar materials sector and features the commercialization strategies used by materials used by suppliers. The report points out the major emerging opportunities, touches upon the key technological trends as well as covers the recent developments
