Global Photovoltaic Coating Market – Overview
Photovoltaic Coating also known as PV Coating or photovoltaic films are developed using organic photovoltaic technology & chemicals. These coatings are applied to convert various surfaces like windows, roof, street or wall in to solar energy receptor. Meaning after applying these coatings any surface can convert sunlight into electric energy.
Photovoltaic Coatings applied on solar panel assure collection of solar energy without needing the silicon wafer, therefore saving almost 98% of the amount that would have otherwise been spent on semiconductor materials. Hence, it is fair to be said that the PV coating has the potential to be as efficient as silicon wafer technology that offers cost savings to manufacturers & consumers alike.
Increasing population worldwide, along with the increasing industrialization & urbanization is prompting the need for energy more than ever. At the same time, growing ecological concerns are promoting utmost use of clean & sustainable energy generated by renewable energy sources like Solar/wind/water. Out of these solar energy being the most abundant renewable energy type, is considered as the most important for meeting the future energy demand of the planet.
Usages of Photovoltaic Coating have proven to be far more efficient, cost effective & practical way to increase the solar power generation. Owing to this efficacy, the market of Photovoltaic Coating is not only increasing but also perceiving escalating heights on the global platform.
Acknowledging the kind of traction gained by this market, Market Research Future (MRFR) has recently published a study report. In its report MRFR foretells that the global Photovoltaic Coating Market is expected grow exponentially by 2027, registering a fabulous CAGR during the forecast period (2017 – 2027).
In addition, factors that propel the market growth include; consumer awareness towards the advantageous Photovoltaic Coating, rising consumption of electricity coupled with the massive hike in pricing of electricity and natural gas is expected to nurture the solar technology & consecutively the market growth of Photovoltaic Coating.
Moreover, automotive applications of Photovoltaic Coating are enabling Electric Vehicles on the go or while standing in the parking lot to generate electricity to power up its electronics or charge its battery making it self-sufficient & greener. Hence, uptake of Photovoltaic Coating for automotive applications are increasing rapidly, this is ultimately, driving the market growth by leaps & bound.
On the other hand, factors such as the cost of Photovoltaic technologies which is slightly on the higher are likely to hamper the market growth during the forecast period. However, technological advancements expected to be transpired in the recent future will certainly provide cost effective solutions which will drive the market growth continually.
The Photovoltaic Coating Market appears to be highly competitive owing to the presence of numerous well-established vendors.
