Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells Market to Reach $60,589.4 Thousand by 2023

  • Published: October 2018

Dye-sensitized solar cells market is projected to reach $60,589.4 thousand by 2023, according to P&S Intelligence.

The market growth is driven by increasing integration of dye-sensitized solar cells with building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPVs) and building-applied photovoltaics (BAPVs) in commercial and residential installations.

Insights of market segments

Based on application, the dye-sensitized solar cells market is categorized into portable charging, BIPVs, BAPVs, embedded electronics, outdoor advertising, solar chargers, wireless keyboards, emergency power in military, automotive-integrated photovoltaics (AIPVs), and others (light intensity meters and consumer appliances). In 2017, BIPVs accounted for the largest share in terms of value, constituting a market share of more than 20.0% in the global market. This is attributable to growing application of BIPVs in pre-existing and forthcoming installations, globally. Thus, increasing the demand for dye-sensitized solar cells in BIPVs in construction industry.

Dye Sensitized Solar Cells Market

APAC is expected to be the fastest dye-sensitized solar cells market

Globally, the APAC dye-sensitized solar cells market is expected to witness the fastest growth, constituting a CAGR of 14.0%, in terms of value, during the forecast period. The increasing regulatory pressure is expected to endorse regional economies such as China, India, Thailand, and Vietnam to augment their energy generation via renewable sources such as solar energy. As a result, the region is expected to witness major capacity additions of photovoltaic (PV) modules for generation of electricity.

The properties of dye-sensitized solar cells such as flexible in nature, high durability, low susceptibility to changes in performance with weather abnormalities, low-cost, ease of fabrication process, and high performance-to-weight ratio are expected to conceptualize the adoption of these cells in the PV modules. Additionally, government policies and initiatives entailing reduction of GHG emissions and of carbon footprint, and development of smart cities are likely to encourage adoption rates of BIPVs in commercial and residential installations, thereby, increasing demand for dye-sensitized solar cells.
