DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Solar Encapsulant Market by Material, by Technology, by Application, by Geography - Global Market Size, Share, Development, Growth, and Demand Forecast, 2013-2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The market growth is mainly driven by the growing application of solar encapsulating materials in the construction, automotive, and electronics industries.
On the basis of material, the solar encapsulant market is categorized into ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), polyvinyl butyral (PVB), polyolefin elastomer, and others. Other materials include thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), and ionomers. During the forecast period, the market is expected to witness the highest growth in terms of volume in the PVB material type. Increasing use of PVB films by manufacturers in automotive, construction, and consumer goods industries is primarily driving their growth in the solar encapsulant market.
On the basis of application, the solar encapsulant market is categorized into automotive, construction, electronics, and others. Construction was the largest application area of solar encapsulants during the historical period and is estimated to account for 68.2% of the market in 2017. This can be attributed to the increasing demand for rooftop panel systems in the construction industry.
R&D in the solar cell technology has resulted in the development of third-generation PVs that have the potential to overcome current efficiency and performance limits. Increasing focus of manufacturers on R&D to improve the efficiency and durability of solar cells and their materials is expected to contribute to the growth of the solar encapsulant market and provide lucrative growth opportunities to the emerging players.
