Driven by the emergence of a strong set of regionally diverse country markets in the last two years, the global PV supply chain overcame the stress of overcapacity, now benefiting from a healthy supply-demand market. Though supply-demand stability and input cost reduction are expected to continue in 2015, the continually evolving regional tariff landscape will pose price risks.

The use of nanoparticles is set to escalate and the market has the potential to increase dramatically over the next ten years as more uses for these materials are developed and commercialized. Eventually, nanomaterials are likely to affect nearly every industry in every region in the world, including the least developed regions. In fact, there is considerable optimism that nanomaterials will be instrumental in addressing some of the developing world’s most pressing concerns. This report presents a forecast of nanomaterials by type and by application.

Crystalline silicon is currently used in over 90% of PV cells. Despite the lower potential cost of emerging thin-film technologies (less material, higher theoretical efficiencies), crystalline silicon is expected to remain the dominant PV technology for at least the next 10 years due to its higher current average efficiency and its greater stability. This report analyzes the market for both crystalline and thin film solar cells, equipment to make them, and polysilicon as a starting point. Marker shares of vendors in all these sectors are presented.
