|Opportunities in the Solar Market for Crystalline and Thin Film Solar Cells|
|Published: September 1, 2015||Content info:||
Crystalline silicon is currently used in over 90% of PV cells. Despite the lower potential cost of emerging thin-film technologies (less material, higher theoretical efficiencies), crystalline silicon is expected to remain the dominant PV technology for at least the next 10 years due to its higher current average efficiency and its greater stability.
This report analyzes the market for both crystalline and thin film solar cells, equipment to make them, and polysilicon as a starting point. Marker shares of vendors in all these sectors are presented.
