Polymer solar cells are a special category of flexible solar cells made up of large polymeric molecules that produce electricity from sunlight using the photovoltaic effect. Generally, organic molecules are used in the construction of polymers solar cells and thus these are also termed as organic solar cells. There are several other types of polymer solar cells including the stable amorphous silicon type, which is most commercially used and is made up of highly purified silicon crystals. The optical absorption coefficient of these polymeric molecules is on the higher side. These solar cells are lightweight, easily disposable, and customizable on a molecular level.

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

The outbreak of the COVID-19 in pandemic has severely impacted the global polymer solar cells market.

  • Since the outbreak of the pandemic, the global economy was on a downfall which resulted in the lowering of disposable income among the consumers across the globe. As a result, the demand for electronics and electrical gadgets and appliances decreased significantly and resulted in the lowering of need of polymer solar cells in the market. 
  • The nationwide lockdowns imposed by several governments to contain the virus imposed most of the business activities to shut down. As a result there was a decrease in demand for energy in majorcommercial places like malls, offices, and others. This has caused decrease in demand for polymer solar cells in different commercial places thereby affecting the market.
  • The lack of competitive financial solutions caused due to the economic slowdown along with the restricted growth prospects caused as a result of the uncertainty over future power demand have also acted as a major challenge for the market.
  • China is a major producer of polymer solar cells. However, the complete shutdown of the country since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has severely hampered the growth of the global polymer solar cells market. 

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis

The steady growth in the technological innovations across the globe has led to a surge in demand for sustainable and eco-friendly sources of energy. The photovoltaic sector is one of the most trending renewable energy technologies, which use solar energy to create electricity. One of the major factors responsible for the growing popularity of polymer cells market over other varieties of photovoltaic cells is the cost effectiveness and easy to fabricate properties. Polymer photovoltaic cells can be applied on windows and walls and even on flexible electronics and other wearables. Moreover, the eco-friendly nature of the polymer solar cells is making it a popular choice among the major end-user industries. The key manufacturers of the polymer solar cells market are investing more on the R&D. They are aiming to produce better and more efficient polymer photovoltaic cells to meet the growing demand for clean energy in the market. However, several issues including less thermal stability and inability to produce energy for a long duration limit the market growth.
