Trends in PV metallization

Trends in PV metallization

Jun 29, 2015
The photovoltaic industry remains a major end user of printed electronics. In this article, we will provide a detailed cost breakdown of the wafer-based silicon photovoltaic cells, showing that Ag and Al metallization continue to constitute a major cost element of the overall PV cell even though the manufacturers make to zero margin. We will then investigate some of the trends in Ag metallization before commenting on silicon inks, which at one…

Thin film PV as a target market for transparent conductive films

Thin film PV as a target market for transparent conductive films

Jan 21, 2014 Worldwide
This article examines thin film photovoltaics as an addressable market segment for transparent conductive films. IDTechEx Research first gives a general overview of the photovoltaic market, including historic price evolution and also a representative list of bankruptcies, closures, acquisitions and restructuring that took place in the past four years. IDTechEx Research then forecasts the total addressable market for transparent conductive sheets…
