Key factors fueling the growth of this market include the growing demand for energy, the support extended by the government, and the growing concern regarding the environment.

Photovoltaics Market

In 2013, the inorganic photovoltaics segment captured the largest share of the photovoltaic market

In 2013, the inorganic photovoltaics segment captured the largest share of the photovoltaic market. The main reason behind inorganic PV occupying the major market share is because IPVs have a lower absorptivity than organic PV materials and require thick absorbing layers and high purity in terms of materials, thereby leading to higher costs to achieve efficient outputs

Photovoltaic market for crystalline silicon PV cell segment are expected to hold the major market share during the forecast period.

Crystalline silicon PV cell segment are expected to hold the major market share during the forecast period. The reason behind major market share is these are the most widely used cells; primarily because the semiconductor properties of silicon are considered to be better than the other elements in its periodic group. In addition, the low cost of silicon also helps to build a thriving market for the same

Photovoltaic market for the utility application held the largest market share in 2013

The utility application held the largest market share in 2013. The reason for the high market share of the utility application is the growth of PV systems in power plant, military and defense, and space utility applications. Due to the increasing global energy demand, the PV power plant installations are being carried out, which is the one of the reasons for the high share of the utility application in the photovoltaic market.

Photovoltaics Market

In 2013, APAC held the largest market share of photovoltaic market

In 2013, APAC held the largest market share of photovoltaic market. This is due to the low cost of production in the APAC countries and the various governments’ initiatives to encourage this market. Japan and China are contributing significantly to the growth of the Asian PV market. In the coming years, countries such as India, South Korea, and Thailand are projected to register a significant growth in the photovoltaics market.
