The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One trend in market is use of PIB for sealing applications in PV systems. PV technologies are highly sensitive to moisture. Although the front sheet and back sheet are covered with an impermeable sheet, the moisture may diffuse through the edges. The edges should be sealed to keep the PV module dry for a lifetime of around 30 years. The use of PIB sealant of around 15 millimeters around the perimeter between the two glass films is one of the methods employed for preventing the penetration of moisture.
PIB-based materials are widely used in the PV industry due to their high stress resistance, low gas permeability, high level of flexibility, and weather resistance. These materials are used as a sealant to protect the electrical assembly in the package and moisture-sensitive PV cells from high temperatures, humidity, and UV radiation. The use of PIB-based materials in this segment is expected to grow during the forecast period, supporting the overall PIB market.
