Thin film PV as a target market for transparent conductive films

Thin film PV as a target market for transparent conductive films

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 (on glass or otherwise) in areal coverage and monetary value. The market is then appropriately segmented into rigid vs flexible, and also ITO vs non-ITO oxide categories, thereby defining the segments addressable by ITO alternatives such as silver nanowires, metal mesh, graphene, etc
