Recent OPV technology and market forecast (2009~2020)
As cost reduction issues are coming to the fore in the PV industry, there is growing attention for thin-film solar cells due to the lower price than that of silicon solar cells, boosting aggressive R&D. Although thin-film solar cells are still in infancy, they are expected to come into competition with silicon solar cell in the near future, considering their advantages such as low energy consumption, high economic feasibility with a short payback period, and the manufacturing process allowing large-area products.

Especially, OPVs (organic photovoltaics) have recently made rapid progress for recent years, and they are definitely one of the most promising technologies in the field of next-generation photovoltaics. Although the OPV market is forming a small part in the entire PV market now, it is gradually growing thorough small mobile applications and BIPVs.

Many technological improvements, such as more than 11% effciency achieved from unit cells using new photoactive layer materials, suggest that commercialization is just around the corner. Mitsubishi, which is playing a leading role in the field of OPVs, is spurring R&D, aiming at entering the commercialization stage by 2014-2015. Although OPVs show relative low efficiency in large-area modules employing flexible substrates, there is rapid progress in efficiency of large-area flexible modules with the development of continuous printing process technologies, which increases market expectations for commercialization.

OPVs are expected to enter the full-scale mass-production stage in 2014 with production of 28MW, and continue to grow rapidly, reaching 94MW in 2015 and more than 1GW in 2020.
