Top Impacting Factors

The significant factors impacting the plastic solar cell market include increase in government initiatives and support toward renewable source of energy, surge in demand for energy in remote areas, surge in demand for plastic solar cells in an electronic industry and conversion efficiency of PV system technology either fuels or hampers the market growth.

Increase in Demand for Plastic Solar Cells in an Electronic Industry

There is a significant increase in the demand for alternative energy sources is due to growth in industrial sector and rise in population. Solar energy is the most abundant form of renewable energy. Photovoltaic (PV) cell is one of the way to connect solar energy. PV cells convert sunlight directly to electricity and can be influential in meeting the world’s energy demand. 

PV systems are being used in a variety of applications because of its lightweight and flexibility. Plastic solar cells are used for coating on the back of electronics so it can supply power to the portable electronics equipment such as PDAS, laptops, and pocket calculators. The plastic solar cells also open up opportunities for the wearable computing devices.

Conversion Efficiency of PV System Technology

The portion of radiant energy of the sun which is converted into electricity via photovoltaics is referred to as solar cell efficiency. Considerations such as reliability, overall production, and competitiveness do not drive the PV system technology as it did in the initial stages. 

In addition, the overall climatic conditions and geographical latitudes have restricted the growth of the solar energy market especially in regions where snow and rainfall are prevalent. This is expected to hinder the growth of the plastic solar cell in the market. 

Research and Development in Solar Cell Technologies

The solar energy market is in its nascent stage but the growing demand for an alternative non-conventional source of energy has generated potential market growth opportunities in recent years. R&D is expected to play the pivotal role in shaping the solar cell technology and expanding the scope of solar energy in various applications. 

In addition, the increased efficiency of solar panels has boosted the market demand, especially in emerging economies such as China and Japan. Furthermore, researchers are fabricating the new third-generation solar module, which is expected to have huge market potential due to its increased energy efficiency.
