Organic Photovoltaic Markets, Nanomarkets Report

Organic Photovoltaic Markets, Nanomarkets Report
The promises of organic photovoltaics (OPV) are disruptive pricing and the ability to enable entirely new products such as smart windows and solar-charged cell phones. Despite these promises, utilizing OPV will be challenging. Organic materials offer poor energy conversion ratios when compared to other thin-film PV technologies, even worse when compared to more conventional crystalline-based photovoltaics. In addition, as with all organic electronics, the active material is very susceptible to damage by water vapor and oxygen.

This new report analyzes and quantifies the market for OPV over the next eight years. It provides capacity and market forecasts, profiles both materials and solar panel firms to watch in the OPV space and takes a hard look at investment trends impacting the OPV business.

Beginning with an examination of the current state of the art in OPV, the report discusses performance issues and the various materials options including "pure" polymer approaches, small molecules, DSSC's and hybrid approaches. An analysis follows of future applications of OPV in traditional areas, as well as novel uses in integrated building systems, signage and consumer electronics. The report ends with detailed forecasts of OPV markets broken out by application, production technology and material.
