This report provides latest analysis and forecast of the opportunities for
the materials used by the three main thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) technologies;
CIGS, silicon, and CdTe. We cover both the absorber and electrode materials,
as well the latest materials-related PV developments such as the use of nanocrystalline
silicon, PV inks, flexible substrates and advanced antireflection materials
and barrier films.
These products and markets are discussed in the context of where the PV industry
as a whole stands today, and where the profitable opportunities will be found
as the worldwide economy improves. The materials strategies of the key cell
and module players in TFPV are also discussed in this report, as well as the
product/market strategies of the key materials firms supplying into this segment.
NanoMarkets also explores in this report the strong relationship between materials,
manufacturing, cost, and applications. In addition, we include eight-year forecasts
of materials volumes and revenues.
NanoMarkets is unique in its coverage of the materials used in TFPV and this
report is essential reading for business development managers and marketing
executives in the businesses of the various materials that are used by TFPV.
