Amorphous silicon thin film is developed by solar cells manufacturing technology. It is used in many applications such as solar wristwatches, power car accessories, pocket calculators, and powering electronic calculators. Amorphous silicon thin film solar cell is a direct bandgap material which requires 1% of silicon for the manufacturing of solar cells which are crystalline silicon based. Amorphous silicon thin film solar cell can be set on many substrates with the temperature below 300°C. This makes it appropriate to be applied for roll-to-roll manufacturing techniques. |These are also applicable in military and space, consumer electronics, grid-connected power supply, building integrated photovoltaics, and others.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • The amorphous silicon thin film solar cell market was negatively affected due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. The demand for amorphous silicon thin film solar cell decreased in many countries due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic as the global supply chain was disrupted.
  • The industries such as military and space, consumer electronics, grid-connected power supply, building integrated photovoltaics and others were shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic and this decreases the demand for amorphous silicon thin film solar cell which affected the amorphous silicon thin film solar cell market.
  • The amorphous silicon thin film solar cell market faced downfall of revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • The demand for amorphous silicon thin film solar cell decreased in many countries due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic as the global supply chain was disrupted.

Top Impacting Factors
There is an increase in the easy availability and low manufacturing cost of different sizes and shapes of silicon thin film solar cells. This is anticipated to boost the growth of amorphous silicon thin film solar cell market. There are highly flexible and light weight in nature and can be adapted in different surfaces. As compared to conventional cells, this amorphous thin film solar cells absorb more energy. This silicon thin film can deposit on a wide range of surfaces such as curved, flexible and rolled. The demand for environment friendly photovoltaic technologies is increasing without the use of heavy metals such as cadmium or lead. This is driving the market growth. As compared to crystalline or poly-crystalline solar cells, amorphous silicon thin film solar cell has lower efficiency. Also, it has shorter life cycle when compared to their counterpart. These can restrain the growth of the amorphous silicon thin film solar cell market.

Market Trends

  • Asia-Pacific has the major share of amorphous silicon thin film solar cell market. The photovoltaic projects in China are largely implemented and the focus to install 10GW of photovoltaic plants will drive the market.
