Solar PV Glass Market to exceed $3bn by 2024
Published Date: May 26, 2017 Author: Global Market Insights, Inc.
Solar PV Glass Market size could exceed USD 3 billion by 2024, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Stringent government norms toward reduction of carbon footprints by increasing the installation of clean energy sources will stimulate the solar PV glass market size. The Government of UK, in 2015 had set a target to replace all the conventional fired power stations with clean systems by 2025. Germany under its Climate Change Act 2008 had set a target to curb carbon footprints by 40% from 1990 level by 2020.
Increasing funding from public and private financial institutions including the World Bank, Asian Development Bank (ADB) to explore PV potential across developing regions will foster the solar PV glass market. In 2017, International Solar Association announced a global funding of about USD 300 billion to support sustainable energy over next ten years. In 2017, Softbank, Japan announced a funding of about USD 100 billion under its Vision Fund program towards solar installations across India.
Government initiatives towards sustainable energy integration coupled with growing measures toward energy conservation will augment the U.S. solar PV glass market. In 2016, The U.S. Government revised its SunShot initiative plans with an aim to achieve cost targets of about USD 0.05 /Kwh and USD 0.04/ Kwh for residential and commercial photovoltaic applications respectively.
Annealed solar PV glass market will witness strong growth owing to its cost competitiveness, and ease of manufacturing. In 2016, a research team from the U.S. based University of Utah developed latest laser annealing technique in thin film chalcogenide PV systems with an aim to cut down overall solar manufacturing costs. Product flexibility subject to heat strengthening, ease of polishing & machining and easy cutting will further complement demand outlook.

Financial and technical assistance including rebates, subsidies, and asset leveraging, by government authorities will embellish the solar PV glass market growth. In 2017, Energy ministry of France awarded an average feed-in-tariff premium of USD 70.25/MWh towards large-scale ground-based photovoltaic installations. The government has further led targets of achieving about 20.2 GW solar PV capacity by 2023.
Crystalline silicon solar PV glass market is set to exceed 5-million-metric tons by 2024. High operational efficiencies and increasing R&D investments will further stimulate the business landscape. In 2017, researchers from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology in collaboration with Sungkyunkwan University introduced their semi-transparent solar cell for solar windows in automobile and buildings. The perovskite integrated cell technology generates electricity and also provides smart heat management for indoor activities.
Netherlands solar PV glass market size in 2016 was valued over USD 20 million. Ongoing government initiatives to expand rooftop installations along with stringent norms pertaining to reduction of GHG emissions will drive growth. In 2016, Government of Netherland has revised its renewable integration targets to 14% by 2020. The government further extended their solar tax scheme in compliance to EU’s climate action plan.
