A flexible PV cell, otherwise called a flimsy film sun oriented cell, is one that is made by storing extremely slim layers of photovoltaic material on a substrate, like paper, tissue, plastic, glass, or metal. It is one of the most revolutionary and game-changing technologies in the solar energy sector. The significance of the term "flexible" is that these solar cells are not like the traditional big, bulky solar panels that are very common nowadays; these are literally flexible, very thin, lightweight, have very low installation costs, and can be installed anywhere without much difficulty. A typical cell's thickness ranges from a few nanometers to a few micrometers, whereas its predecessor, the crystalline-silicon solar cell (c-Si), has a wafer size of up to 200 micrometers. Thin film solar cells on glass substrates are an alternative to Si solar cells. The main disadvantages of using glass substrates are the fragile nature of modules, the high cost of glass wafers with thicknesses of 300–400 m, and low specific power (kW/kg), among other things. When solar cells are used in space applications, specific power is an important consideration. Flexible solar cells on polymer films can achieve a high specific power of more than 2 kW/kg, making them useful for both terrestrial and space applications. The use of flexible substrates and the roll-to-roll production (R2R) technique can reduce production costs. Aside from light weight, flexibility, and lower installation costs, flexible cell processing entails a low thermal budget with low material consumption.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • The market for adaptable PV cells is required to decrease in 2020, owing essentially to the effect of COVID-19. Lockdowns have been forced by the administrations of a few significant economies to end the spread of COVID-19. Assembling exercises have been seriously hampered because of the lockdown.
  • India, for instance, imports 80% of its sun oriented worth chain supplies from China. The Chinese assembling limit had been seriously affected by the lockdown, as all significant boat compartment organizations had likewise quit working out of Chinese ports and moving merchandise from China to different nations.
  • As an outcome, store network interruptions happened in Spring and April 2020. Likewise, lockdowns executed in different nations upset stockpile chains and made work deficiencies in the PV business. Because of movement limitations, organizations couldn't source the essential work for their activities. However the market is required to be affected in 2020, recuperation is relied upon to start in 2021, with full recuperation happening in 2022.

Top Impacting factors

Nations all throughout the planet are creating different innovations to alleviate environmental change in light of focuses to diminish nursery emanations in the coming years. The U.S. is required to expand its sunlight based energy portion of complete power age from 2% in 2018 to 20% by 2030. Polymer sun powered cells can possibly supplant existing silicon PV innovation because of their quick turn of events and mechanical benefits over silicon PV, principally in created nations where new innovation selection is quicker than in agricultural nations. During the gauge time frame, the mechanical benefits of polymer sun oriented cells are probably going to obstruct the market.

Market Trends

  • Expansion
  • In 2019, the all-out introduced limit of worldwide sunlight based PV innovation is assessed to be around 580 gigatons (GW). With the quick headway of PV innovation lately, polymer sun powered cells accomplished a productivity of around 16% in 2019. To build productivity considerably further, different associations with various atomic designs are directing escalated research and are relied upon to enter the sunlight based PV market in not so distant future.
  • According to Solarmer Energy Inc., the present status of Adaptable PV cells is required to work on over the long haul and innovative progression, giving proficient polymer atomic design and driving the sun powered board industry in the coming years.
  • As of 2019, there are a couple other R&D projects in the locale. OPVIUS GmbH is a noticeable illustration of modern roll-to-roll (R2R) printing of exceptionally effective non-fullerene acceptor (NFAbased natural photovoltaics (OPV). Finish of Research and development in different areas and applications is relied upon to extend the provincial market in the coming years.
