Decreasing Grid Parity of Solar Energy to Spur Demand
Market consolidation in Europe and North America is due to increasing imports from Asia-Pacific, a result of the over-supply of materials manufacturing. The largest market, APAC constitutes over 70% of global PV materials consumption, yet growing adoption of premium products such as BIPV in Europe and NA is expected to boost revenues.

This study explores the current status and future prospects of the global photovoltaic (PV) materials market. It analyzes unit shipment and revenue generated from frontsheets, backsheets, and encapsulants from 2012 to 2022.

The impact of regulations; product, material, and technology trends; and market drivers and restraints is provided along with an evaluation of the value chain and distribution channels.

- Front sheets
- Encapsulants
- Back sheets

The study also covers the technology segments of:

- Crystalline silicone
- Thin film

Market Overview

Decreasing Grid Parity to Stimulate the Adoption of PV Modules

Governments' desire to increase the share of renewable sources in the energy mix and the low grid parity of solar resources is accelerating the growth of the global PV systems market and consequently, the PV materials market. The consistent decrease in the prices of PV materials will further stoke the adoption of PV modules, even in the residential sector. This has led to a more intense demand for premium PV materials that can increase the efficiency of the solar modules.

Patterned anti-reflective coated glass is gaining momentum in the front sheets market, while polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polyvinyl fluoride-based materials are set to be the most prominent in the back sheets segment, owing to their superior price-performance. Meanwhile, properties such as light transmissibility, adhesion to substrates and durability will enhance the demand for polyolefin (PO) sheets among encapsulants.

Customer price-sensitivity has been continuously increasing along with performance requirements. Therefore manufacturers are expected to innovate on this front to remain cost-competitive

The withdrawal of financial incentives by governments in parts of Europe due to market maturity poses a threat to the smaller firms, this in turn is expected to lead to further consolidation. On the other hand, the high demand for solar modules in India and the countries belonging to Association of South East Asian Nations will encourage global companies to partner with the local manufacturers to widen their global footprint.
