Up Market Research published a new report titled “CIGS Thin Film Solar Cells Market research report which is segmented by Types (1-2 Micro Meters, 2-3 Micro Meters, 3-4 Micro Meters), By Applications (Automobiles, Electronics And Electrical, Energy And Power, Others), By Players/Companies Trina Solar, Tata Power Solar Systems, Suniva, SolarWorld, Pionis Energy Technologies, JinkoSolar Holding, Borg, Alps Technology, Itek Energy”. As per the study, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% in the forecast period.
The global CIGS thin-film solar cells market is projected to reach USD 1.83 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 23.1% from 2021-2028. The North American region is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period due to growing demand for renewable energy in this region and less investment in R&D activities for the development of new products in Europe.
CIGS thin films are made of copper, indium (In), gallium (Ga), and selenide. They have a layered structure that looks like onion peelings with alternating layers of crystalline silicon or amorphous silicon as the electron conductor and an organic semiconductor material such as pentacene for hole conductivity. The final product is typically deposited on a glass substrate using chemical vapor deposition techniques to form photovoltaic cells.
For application in solar energy systems, CIGS materials can be used alone without any other type of substance because they don't require a metal electrode or heat-resistant substrates like those required by some types of silicone-based PV technologies based on polysilicon deposited onto glass.
On the basis of type, the CIGS thin-film solar cells market is segmented into one-two micrometers, two-three micrometers, and three-four micrometers.
The one-two micrometer CIGS thin-film solar cell is made of indium, gallium, and sulfur on a glass substrate with small particles of cadmium selenide or mercury telluride. The one-two micrometer CIGS thin-film solar cell converts about 14% of sunlight into electricity on average when focused at 75 degrees Celsius because it reflects less than 20% ultraviolet and infrared. This type can be used in the construction industry as well because it does not need to be installed directly onto an exterior surface like other types such as silicon cells that are more fragile and cannot withstand adverse weather conditions.
A two-three micrometers CIGS thin-film solar cell is manufactured by inserting a copper indium gallium selenide material in between layers of silicon and then applying an optical coating to the surface. The main advantage of this type of cell is that it can be mass-produced using current technology whereas other types, such as quantum dot ones, could not since they require more sophisticated production techniques.
Three-four micrometers thin-film solar cells are a type of CIGS (copper, indium, gallium, and selenide) technology that is manufactured by sputtering copper onto an amorphous silicon substrate. Coating the surface with silver or aluminum increases the performance of these devices in low light conditions. Three-Four micrometers (µm) CIGS thin-film solar cell technologies have been available since the early 2000s but it was only recently that they were introduced on a commercial level with prices at par or lower than silicon equivalents.
on the basis of application, the CIGS thin-film solar cells are used in automobiles, electronics & electricals applications, energy & power sectors.
CIGS thin-film solar cells are used in automobiles as the component of photovoltaic modules. They can be found mainly on roofs, hoods, and trunks of cars. CIGS thin-film solar cells are the semiconductor of choice in applications where a very specific wavelength range is needed, such as those that require short wavelengths. The use of CIGS for automobiles has grown significantly over recent years and it is expected to continue growing at an accelerating rate. Thin-film photovoltaic technologies have been used by major automobile manufacturers since 2010 when Audi installed them on its Avante model with a peak power output between 30 and 70 W.
CIGS thin-film solar cells are used in the electronics and electricals industry, for applications such as photovoltaic modules. These products can be found on automobiles (e.g., Tesla), handheld devices like smartphones or tablets, airplanes, boats, and even satellites. The use of CIGS panels is increasing because they require less space than other panel types to generate an equivalent amount of energy. They also produce more electricity during hot days when many types of silicon-based panels may not work very well due to their inability to handle the heat from direct sunlight better than CIGS ones do.
CIGS thin-film solar cells are used in the energy and power sector. They can be installed as standalone structures or integrated with other technologies, such as photovoltaic systems, to generate electricity at a lower cost per watt than crystalline silicon PV panels. CIGS thin films are also often combined with antireflection coatings for improved efficiency. A few types of applications include grid-connected rooftop installations that produce renewable energy; building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) which is an architectural design where buildings have their outer walls covered with solar cells; off-grid remote areas without access to the electrical grid by using either stand-alone modules or hybrid systems made up of both PV and battery storage devices; and solar-powered street lights.
On the basis of region, the global CIGS thin-film solar cells market is segmented into North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific.
The European CIGS thin-film solar cells market is anticipated to hold a dominant share in the global CIGS thin-film solar cells market. This can be attributed to the rapid adoption of renewable energy and strict environmental regulations that mandate the use of clean sources for power generation. In addition, North America will grow at a moderate rate during the forecast period owing to the increasing adoption of solar panels in the residential and commercial sectors.
The global CIGS thin-film solar cells market is projected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period owing to the increasing adoption of clean sources for power generation. This can be attributed to growing demand from developing countries such as India and China where low-cost electricity solutions are required by their vast population.
India will witness an increase in adoption due to its focus on renewable energy and the inclusion of large-scale projects under the National Solar Mission 2020 (NSM). NSM aims at generating 20 GWs by 2022. There has been substantial growth witnessed across all segments of the global CIGS thin-film solar cells market over recent years, with the Asia Pacific expected to have high growth prospects due to increasing demand for low-cost electricity.
The factors such as the rise in investment for green energy, favorable government policies, and technological advances are boosting this demand. Countries like India and China have been running on renewable power sources which will provide further opportunity for these cell manufacturers globally.
