By Product

TPT in 2016, accounted for over 8% the solar PV backsheet market revenue share. Effective weather resistance and high inherent strength in comparison to its competitive counterparts are among the essential parameters which will encourage the product penetration. The product offers low permeability of moisture or vapor oil and can sustain temperatures varying across -70OC to around 110OC. Henceforth, expanding industrial framework along with effective technical specifications will fuel the product adoption.
 

PVDF backsheets have gained an appreciable share owing to their comparatively sustainable product efficiency and economic cost structure. However, availability of efficient auxiliary insulating layers along with rapid development of advanced composite compositions may hinder the product penetration. Ongoing research and development activities accompanied by technological developments to accentuate the productivity of the conventional product will stimulate the industry growth.
 

TPE’s have witnessed a modest penetration over the years on account of the availability of efficient and cost effective auxiliary backsheet technologies. In the current scenario, the product acts as an economical alternative to TPT configurations. Rapidly enhancing technological prospects pertaining to operational efficiency and flexibility are predicted to augment the business outlook.
 

By Thickness

100 to 500 micrometer backsheets subject to their high applicability across medium-scale solar installations have gained an appreciable hold across the global industry share. High-voltage solar applications that cater to the rising demand across large commercial establishments and small-scale industries will drive the business outlook. In addition, soaring demand for photovoltaics across sectors with low irradiance and the development of private- and public-owned solar farms will propel the industry growth.
 

< 100 micrometer backsheets are anticipated to onlook robust growth on account of lower costs and wide deployment across small-scale applications. Increasing concerns subject to operational flexibilities and advancing unit efficiencies will drive the solar PV backsheet market penetration. In addition, increasing off-grid deployments along with the rising demand for efficient & cost-effective modules across rooftop installations will further boost the product demand.
 

By Material

Non-fluoropolymers are anticipated to witness a growth of over 6% by 2024. These materials possess shorter life cycle and lower efficiencies when compared with fluoropolymer backsheets. However, the large availability of cost-effective auxiliary non-fluoropolymer technologies and the prevailing issues pertaining to the disposal of fluoropolymers will encourage the solar photovoltaic backsheet market demand.
