Solar Photovoltaic Wafer Market

Market Insights on Solar Photovoltaic Wafer covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Solar Photovoltaic Wafer Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 - 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 - 2027

Solar Photovoltaic Wafer Market Overview

Solar modules made from wafers of crystalline silicon have been the dominant technology in terrestrial photovoltaic. A slab or solar photovoltaic wafer is used to create a photovoltaic cell. More than 85% of solar cells currently made worldwide consist of wafer-based silicon cells.

The wafer is subjected to high temperature in the presence of phosphorous oxychloride to induce into it the physical properties required to produce electricity. The top of the solar photovoltaic wafer is coated with an anti-reflective material like silicon nitride to increase the light absorption capacity by minimizing the reflection.

The solar photovoltaic wafer industry is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period.

Global solar photovoltaic wafer: Market Restraints

Solar photovoltaic wafer based photovoltaic panels are costlier than thin film photovoltaic panels. This factor, in particular, might restrain the growth of the market in near future.

Global solar photovoltaic wafer: Market Trends

These days, manufacturers are focusing on decreasing the overall thickness of the wafer used in solar cell manufacturing. Using thinner wafers would reduce the overall cost of the raw material used as manufacturers will be able to cut higher number of wafers from a single brick.

The major focus of manufacturers is reducing the production cost, which they are trying to achieve by reducing waste production during polysilicon crystallization, recycling saw dust and improving material handling during the production process.
