Photovoltaic materials are semiconducting materials that can absorb solar energy and convert it into electricity. They comprise monocrystalline, polycrystalline or amorphous silicon, gallium arsenide, metal chalcogenides, and organometallics. They help in the production of low-cost, mechanically flexible, and large-area photovoltaic devices to allow relevant access to sustainable and clean energy. As a result, they find extensive applications in residential, non-residential, and utility sectors. At present, there is a rise in the installation of solar photovoltaics due to their accessibility, capacity, and efficiency, which is catalyzing the demand for photovoltaic materials worldwide.
The growing manufacturing of solar cell modules to supply power to residential and non-residential areas represents one of the key factors driving the market. Moreover, the rising awareness among individuals about the benefits of solar energy, along with increasing concerns about greenhouse gas emissions, are propelling the growth of the market. In addition, declining costs of photovoltaic materials, coupled with the limited availability of fossil fuels across the globe, is positively influencing the market. Besides this, there is a rise in the demand for organic photovoltaics to provide earth-abundant and low-energy-production photovoltaic (PV) solutions. In line with this, the increasing utilization of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC), which enable the user to convert both artificial and natural light into energy and power various electronic devices, is bolstering the market growth. Apart from this, governments of several countries are undertaking initiatives to increase the usage of renewable energy. In addition, they are working towards the formulation and implementation of policies that support photovoltaic projects with grid connection convenience. Additionally, the rising employment of thin film-based solar technology due to its lightweight and cost-efficiency compared to traditional solar technology is strengthening the market growth.
