Photovoltaic Materials Market Size Worth $36.23 Billion By 2025

August 2017 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global photovoltaic materials market is expected to reach USD 36.23 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growing PV installations coupled with rise in module manufacturing facilities in Asia Pacific is driving market demand.

The demand for photovoltaic materials is the highest in the construction of solar cell. The growing number of PV projects commissioned by the government is boosting the consumption. The government incentive offered on building integrated photovoltaics is expected to further augment market demand.

Asia Pacific accounted for the maximum market share owing to the presence of a large number of module manufacturers in China and India. The slowdown in the Chinese manufacturing sector due to sanctions imposed by the government is expected to force module manufacturers to turn towards other developing countries. The growing exports of solar cells from Asia Pacific to North America and Europe are expected to have a positive impact on market demand.
