Organic Photovoltaics (OPV) Industry: Is the End of the Road Near?


May 18th, 2010

Global Information, Inc. would like to present a new market research report, "Organic and Dye-Sensitized Cell Photovoltaics: Materials, Applications and Opportunities 2010" by NanoMarkets.

The focus for growth in the organic photovoltaics/dye sensitized cells business appears to be very different than predicted even a year ago. The cost of OPV has not declined as quickly as many had anticipated. Meanwhile, competing technologies have posted more rapid than predicted cost reductions. The assumption that OPV will be the cheapest PV technology is no longer a foregone conclusion. Is the end of the road near for the organic photovoltaics industry? According to research analysts at NanoMarkets, "We dont believe so". This new report analyzes the organic photovoltaics (OPV) industry and reveals which applications will preserve the OPV market as a growth business. OPV possess some characteristic features that are unique in comparison to inorganic thin-film PV (TFPV) technologies. For example, OPV features like ease of manufacturing and extreme flexibility enable the technology to enter some markets that are not accessible to other PV technologies. NanoMarkets report examines how and where these distinguishing features can be turned into opportunities. The study also discusses where hybrid organic/inorganic PV, particularly dye sensitized cells (DSCs), is making an impression.
