Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market Expected to Reach $37.6 billion by 2026


quote Solar glass technology utilizes photovoltaic coating to transform solar power into electricity. New Energy Technologies (U.S.), one of the start-ups in this field, has developed an invisible photovoltaic liquid that spreads over any transparent surface such as solar glass. A transparent luminescent solar concentrator (TLSC) is attached on a solar glass, which filters ultraviolet and infrared radiation. Onyx Solar produces highly transparent glass of different colors and sizes. These solar glass panels filter both ultraviolet (up to 99%) and infrared (up to 95%) radiations and give protection against other potentially harmful radiations as well. In addition, these panels help to generate electricity and offer thermal insulation. quote

According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, "Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market by Type and End-use Industry: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019-2026," the global solar photovoltaic glass market was valued at $4.54 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach $37.6 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 30.3% from 2019 to 2026.

Photovoltaic glass (PV glass) is a glass that integrates transparent semiconductor-based photovoltaic cells to convert light into electricity. The factors responsible for solar PV glass market growth includes supportive regulations toward installation of solar plants have led to the increase in demand for solar PV glass. In addition, the demand for solar glasses is on rise from end-use industries like residential, commercial, and utility scale pertaining that solar energy is a renewable energy, which causes no pollution and ensures energy saving. High costs involved in installation, storage, and purchase of solar devices is expected to hamper the growth of the market. However, the global solar PV glass market is yet to explore its full potential. The surge in demand for renewable energy from emerging economies such as India, China, and Japan are expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities to the market. 

The global solar PV glass market is segmented on the basis of type, end-use industry, and region. On the basis of type, it is divided into anti-reflective coated glass, tempered glass, TCO glass, and others. The tempered glass segment holds a dominant position in the market and anti-reflective coated glass segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR of 31.6% during the forecast period. 

By end-use industry, the solar photovoltaic glass market trends are studied across residential, commercial and utility scale. The utility-scale segment holds a dominant position and is expected to grow with the highest CAGR of 31.4%, during the forecast period.

Region wise, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. The Asia-Pacific region holds a dominant position in the market and LAMEA is expected to grow with the highest CAGR of 31.0%, during the forecast period.
