According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market," The solar photovoltaic glass market size was valued at $17.1 billion in 2023, and is estimated to reach $243.7 billion by 2033, growing at a CAGR of 30.5% from 2024 to 2033.


Solar photovoltaic (PV) glass, also known as solar glass or PV glass, is a specialized type of glass that integrates photovoltaic cells to convert sunlight into electricity. This innovative building material serves dual purposes by acting as a functional building material and a renewable energy generator. Solar PV glass is used in solar roads and highways to generate electricity from sunlight and provide illuminated road markings or signage. Solar PV glass canopies or shelters are expected to be installed at bus stops, train stations, and other public transportation hubs to provide shade and power lighting or information displays.

Moreover, flexible and lightweight solar PV glass are used in portable solar chargers for smartphones, tablets, and other electronic devices. Solar PV glass is to be integrated into wearable technology, such as smartwatches, fitness trackers, and clothing, to provide on-the-go power generation.

Market Dynamics

Supportive government regulations, incentives, policies, and initiatives are essential drivers for the growth of the solar photovoltaic glass market. Many governments are setting renewable energy targets to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change. These targets often include specific goals for solar energy deployment, providing a long-term market signal for investment in solar PV technologies. Governments are also implementing feed-in tariffs, which offer financial incentives to solar PV glass producers and users by guaranteeing a premium rate for the electricity generated from renewable sources, encouraging investments in solar energy projects.

According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the government has implemented laws such as net metering and community solar to promote the use of photovoltaic technology to generate electricity.  In countries such as the U.S., Spain, and France, consumers can utilize photovoltaic energy for their own electricity needs and sell the remaining solar power that they do not use. However, International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Standards, such as IEC 61215 for crystalline silicon terrestrial photovoltaic (PV) modules and IEC 61730 for PV module safety qualification, are commonly referenced to ensure the safety and reliability of solar PV glass. Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Standards, including UL 1703 for flat-plate photovoltaic modules and panels, are widely recognized and used to evaluate the safety and performance of solar PV glass in the U.S. and other regions.

However, the cost of installing solar PV glass can be relatively high compared to traditional building materials or standard solar panels. Solar PV glass is produced using specialized manufacturing processes and materials, which can be more expensive than those used in conventional building materials or standard solar panels. The integration of photovoltaic cells into glass requires advanced technology and materials, contributing to the higher cost of solar PV glass.

Nevertheless, innovations in solar photovoltaic glass are expanding the solar PV glass industry growth opportunities by providing more effective and efficient solutions. Researchers and manufacturers are developing solar cells that are more transparent and can be customized in terms of color, allowing for greater design flexibility and aesthetic appeal. Transparent solar cells can be integrated into windows, skylights, and building facades, turning them into power-generating surfaces without obstructing the view or natural light.

Furthermore, bifacial solar PV glass is capable of generating electricity from both sides, capturing sunlight reflected off surfaces such as rooftops or the ground, thereby increasing energy production. Bifacial solar PV glass offers improved efficiency and performance, especially in environments with high albedo (reflectivity), making it a more attractive option for various applications.
