BIPV offers both the PV industry and the building products industry a way out
of their current economic plights. For PV firms, BIPV provides a product
strategy geared to adding value to products. For the building products
industry, BIPV represents a new line of products that will enable construction
firms to add saleable features to buildings of all kinds.
While all this is true of all BIPV products, there is a natural migration path
from today's rooftop PV panels to BIPV roofing. With this in mind,
NanoMarkets is publishing this report, which identifies and quantifies the
market opportunities for BIPV roofing.
The report discusses a roadmap for BIPV roofing in which business revenues are
generated initially by simple overlay products and then by conventional rigid
and flexible BIPV roofing products and finally from fully integrated products.
The report also shows how the performance of BIPV roofing is expected to
evolve with a special focus on lifetime requirements and the materials that
will be used both for substrates and absorber layers.
This report also includes extensive forecasts of the BIPV roofing market in
terms of wattage, area covered and revenues generated. Breakouts are provided
by type of building, type of BIPV roofing and key materials used. In
addition, we project the nations and regions that will generate the most
revenues for BIPV roofing and the breakouts of the BIPV roofing market by
retrofit and new construction. As usual with NanoMarkets reports, this report
also includes a detailed assessment of the strategies of the leading firms
currently supplying BIPV roofing products.
