Technavio’s heavy industry research analysts categorize the global building-integrated photovoltaic skylights market into the following segments by end-user. They are:

  • Commercial sector
  • Residential sector
  • Industrial sector

Commercial sector

The commercial sector is the major end-user of BIPV skylights. This sector includes office buildings, warehouses, restaurants, and retail spaces. It is estimated that about 23.45% of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted. Therefore, with increased government initiatives, developers of commercial buildings are implementing EMS (energy management system) and BIPV technologies to improve the overall building efficiency.

According to Gaurav Mohindu, a lead construction research analyst from Technavio, “Government initiatives such as the Better Buildings initiative in the US aim at improving the energy efficiency of commercial buildings. This initiative calls for increasing the energy efficiency of commercial buildings by 20% by 2020.”

Residential sector

This segment represents the demand for BIPV skylights from residential structures, including apartments, bungalows, elderly person's homes, residential outlines, student accommodation, and sheltered housing. At present, the residential sector accounts for a small share of the global BIPV skylights market. This is because the cost of BIPV skylight systems is on the higher side for a homeowner to be able to afford easily.

The increasing urban population has contributed to an increasing consumption of energy. Individuals are also focusing on deploying smart and trendy energy-savings options. The growing focus on smart cities will attract many BIPV vendors. This is also expected to drive the integration of BIPV solar panels in smart buildings,” says Amit.

Industrial sector

This segment represents the demand for BIPV skylights in several manufacturing facilities such as factories, assembly plants, iron and steel mills, glassworks facilities, and other industrial buildings. One of the most effective methods of reducing energy use in manufacturing facilities is the use of solar energy by harnessing it.

One of the advantages of BIPV systems is that they ensure constant power supply, which helps in revenue generation. This segment is anticipated to grow with the development of the global BIPV market by the upstream industrial segment.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Onyx Solar Energy
  • Polysolar
  • Super Sky Products
  • ML System
  • EnergyGlass
