Global Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market

Global Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market Size Booming 6X to Cross Whopping USD 117.7 Billion by 2029

Published | 21 February 2023

Global solar photovoltaic (PV) glass market is gaining traction because of the high demand for solar PV glass from end-use industries and increasing popularity of solar systems for renewable energy.

BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated the global solar photovoltaic (PV) glass market size at USD 18.73 billion in 2022. During the forecast period between 2023 and 2029, the global solar photovoltaic glass market size is projected to grow at a robust CAGR of 30.22% reaching a value of USD 117.74 billion by 2029. Rising interest and investments in the renewable energy sector to support power generation from sustainable sources such as solar and wind, along with favorable government initiatives to accelerate the adoption of solar energy across commercial and residential spaces, are major growth factors for the global solar PV glass market. The global market for solar PV glass is also expected to witness lucrative growth prospects from extensive R&D and ongoing product improvements.

Global Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market – Overview

Solar photovoltaic (PV) glass is a method that converts solar energy into electrical energy while shielding PVs against environmental elements, including dust, rain, and snow. Solar PV glass is being used to build integrated PVs. PV glass is being incorporated into building panels, roof panels, and windows. Cell phones, automobiles, and greenhouses may all employ solar PV glass. Photovoltaic is a technology advancement that makes it possible to convert solar energy into power. Transparent semiconductor-based PV cells, sometimes referred to as solar cells, are incorporated into the glass to convert sunlight into solar energy. PV glass transforms buildings into vertical power producers by generating free and renewable electricity due to the solar energy.  Additionally, it offers thermal and acoustic insulation, guaranteeing filtration as up to 95% of infrared radiation and 99% of dangerous UV radiation may be absorbed. The three major PV cell technologies—monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon, and thin film—control the global market.

Global Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market – By Module

Based on module, the global solar photovoltaic glass market is segmented into crystalline silicon PV modules, amorphous silicon PV modules, and thin film PV modules. The crystalline silicon PV modules segment accounts for the highest share in the global solar photovoltaic glass market. Crystalline technology typically offers the highest "STC'' (standard test conditions) efficiency ratings; for multi-crystalline modules, these values range from 12% to 17%, and for monocrystalline modules, they can reach up to 20%. However, thin-film PV modules are projected to register growth at a high CAGR during the forecast period as they offer better low-light performance as well as good structural strength.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market

The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic outbreak significantly affected the growth of the global solar photovoltaic glass market. The imposition of lockdown and import-export restrictions across countries significantly affected the manufacturing activities as well as the demand and supply for solar photovoltaic glass. The infrastructure development activities surrounding the renewable energy sector were also temporarily halted due to a shortage of workers. All these factors resulted in huge losses to the global solar photovoltaic glass market during the initial outbreak. However, as the demand for energy spiked and awareness towards sustainability gained traction in the post COVID-19 period, the market has witnessed tremendous growth.

Competitive Landscape

Major players operating in the global solar photovoltaic glass market include AGC Glass Europe, Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd., Taiwan Glass Industry Corporation, Xinyi Solar Holdings Limited, Sisecam, Guardian Glass, Saint-Gobain, Borosil Limited, China-Henan Huamei Chemical Co., Ltd., Interfloat Corporation, Guangdong Golden Glass Technologies Ltd., Hecker Glastechnik GmbH & Co.
