Ultra-thin solar cells Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Application Development Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2016 - 2024
Shift from fossil fuels toward renewable energy and favorable government policy anticipated to drive the global ultra-thin solar cells market size.
Solar cells refer as cell that converts light energy into electrical energy and is also known as photovoltaic cell. It is made up of one or more thin film (TF) or thin layer of photovoltaic material, such as plastic, metal or glass and a second generation cell. Thickness of thin film varies from nanometers to tens of micrometers (µm). It is light in weight, have a less friction, less material needed to build, flexible and have capability to produce up to 6 watts of power per gram.

Thin film solar cell can be used as glazing material that can be laminated onto windows, building integrated photovoltaic and use inflexible thin film solar panels in some of the largest photovoltaic power stations of world. They are also used in several technologies such as Cadmium telluride (CdTe), amorphous thin film silicon and copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) for outdoor application. Cadmium telluride (CdTe) technology is leader for thin film technology as they produce 5 percent of worldwide photovoltaic production and accounted for more than half of Ultra-thin solar cells market share.
Thin film is also finding a host of new applications such as powering airplanes for example solar Impulse 2 which has completed 32,000 km journey with speed ranging between 36 kmph to 140 kmph. Advantage of thin-film solar cell is cost-effectiveness, environment-friendly, high power output on average and good low-light performance, pollution free and its applications in several industries such as semiconductor, photovoltaic solar cells, electrical and optical coating. It belongs to one of Nano crystalline thin film Si Amorphous Si, the CdTe, Multi-layer based tandem or multi-junction, The CuInxGa1-xSe2 or "CIGS" family, Exotica, The TiO2 - dye based family, Polycrystalline thin film Si family.
Shift from fossil fuels toward renewable energy, financial incentives, government policies for example 30% tax credit on implementation of these products for both commercial and residential projects, innovation in nanotechnology, increasing energy conversion efficiency and reducing component and material cost are some of the drivers boosting demand for Ultra-thin solar cells during the forecast period. Efficiency maintenance and technological challenge could restrain growth. Global ultra-thin solar cells market share is segmented on the basis of type, technology, application and region. The technology includes thin-film amorphous silicon solar cell technologies, thin-film cadmium telluride solar cell technologies, thin-film copper indium gallium diselenide solar cell technologies.
