Market Dynamics:

Driver: Technological advancements in next-generation solar cells

The solar cell has different generations based on development. The first-generation solar cell includes solar cells based on crystalline silicon material. The second-generation solar  cells are thin film solar cells which is the primary focus of this report. It includes materials cadmium telluride (CdTe), amorphous silicon (a-Si), copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS), and Gallium Arsenide (GaAs). The third generation of solar cells is new in the market; some are not yet commercialized. Third-generation solar cells in organic solar cells, dye-sensitized solar cells, and perovskite solar cells have been included in other sections. Technological advancements such as the development of Thin-Film technology are making it possible to create solar cells that are more efficient, cost-effective, and durable while using less material. For instance, In June 2022, researchers at Princeton University developed the first commercially viable perovskite solar cells, which can be manufactured at room temperature and requires less energy to produce than any other solar cell, such as silicon-based solar cells.

First Solar (US)

First Solar designs, manufactures, markets, and distributes PV solar power systems and modules. The company operates its business via two reportable segments—Modules and Others. The Modules business segment is involved in designing, manufacturing, and selling CdTe solar modules. The company provides Series 6 and Series 6 Plus PV modules with a maximum power of 450 W. First Solar also provides recycling solutions for PV power plants and module owners. The company mainly sells its solar modules to system integrators and operators in the US and France. The company is expected to produce a capacity of 10 gigawatts of thin film solar panels by 2025 for the US.

Ascent Solar Technologies (US)

Ascent Solar Technologies is one of the leading providers of CIGS (Copper-Indium-Gallium-Selenide) solar technology with 40 years of R&D and a patent portfolio in solar technology.  The company’s patented monolithic integration process enables the manufacturing of solar cells with high flexibility, efficiency, durability, and weight savings. The company has 139,000 square foot headquarters that supports R&D, manufacturing, operations, and office space for Ascent employees. AFRL (Air Force Research Laboratory), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and  NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) are among a few of its notable research partners.    

North America accounts for the largest market share during the forecast period.

The overall next-generation solar cell market size in Asia Pacific held the largest share in 2022. The companies in this region are focusing on boosting their production capabilities and widening their distribution networks, and the manufacturers are utilizing new technologies for solar cells in their operations. Increased solar cell demands from countries such as China, Japan, India, and South Korea is experienced by the global market players. India and China are playing a major role in the growth of the Asia Pacific next-generation solar cell market size. These countries are aggressively progressing in the global solar cell market. The presence of favorable government policies in the Asia Pacific contributes to the growth of the regional solar cell market.
