Materials for Next-Generation Photovoltaics – 2014-2021

Materials for Next-Generation Photovoltaics – 2014-2021

  • August 2014 •
  • Report ID: 2355279
The main objective of this report is to provide a comprehensive overview of the next-generation solar photovoltaics (PV) market,
assessing the future potential and providing detailed eight-year forecasts for the photovoltaics business. In this report we analyze the
market under different segments (in terms of technology and potential applications) with separate revenue and volume estimations.
In compiling our forecasts, we examine the product development and marketing strategies of the leading influential players, both
large and small, in the emerging solar PV field.
We also take into consideration announcements by current and prospective players regarding pricing, new product introduction,
capacity expansion, technology evolution, and production timetables. These announcements are reviewed critically—because in
some cases the expectations and projections seem highly unrealistic to us.
Photovoltaic technologies covered in this report include:
• Novel crystalline silicon photovoltaics
• Organic photovoltaics
• Dye-sensitized solar cells
• Perovskite-based photovoltaics
• Quantum dot-based photovoltaics
• Silver nanowire based photovoltaics
• Carbon nanotube-based photovoltaics
• Graphene-based photovoltaics

METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCES

This report is the latest from NanoMarkets that looks closely at the trends in solar photovoltaics.
The forecasting approach is to identify and quantify the photovoltaic markets for next-generation photovoltaics over the next eight years, and then assess and quantify their potential to actually penetrate these markets via substitution for conventional silicon-based photovoltaics. This is a key factor, because next-gen photovoltaics represent a completely new form of solar energy harvesting.
As part of the analysis, we assess the likely level of competition from other technologies in the different addressable markets. We also consider how technical developments can accelerate, slow, and in some cases halt the ability of different photovoltaic technologies to gain widespread commercialization.
To determine where the opportunities lie, we have based this report both on primary and secondary research:
• Primary information is gathered through analysis of relevant applications and market trends based on discussions with key players in the photovoltaics segment, including entrepreneurs, business development and marketing managers, and technologists.
• Secondary research is based on technical literature, company websites, trade journals and press articles, trade shows, and conferences. This also includes the complete library of our own reports in this field, which is now quite extensive. Where data is based on another report, it has been reinvestigated, reanalyzed, and reconsidered in the light of current information, and updated accordingly.

This report is international in scope. The forecasts here are worldwide and we have not been geographically selective in the firms
covered or interviewed.
