(September 30, 2010) — This Frost & Sullivan research service, “Strategic Analysis of Global Photovoltaic Materials Markets,” provides a comprehensive analysis of the various segments in the markets, including a discussion on the key challenges, restraints and drivers. In this research, Frost & Sullivan’s analysts examine the following application sectors: encapsulants, frontsheet, backsheet and anti-reflection coating. The research also covers product types: EVA, PVB, silicones and ionomers as encapsulants; low-iron, patterned and coated glasses and polymers including PVDF, PVF and ECTFE as frontsheet materials; PVDF, PET, PVF, EPDM, EVA and glass as backsheet materials; and elemental oxides as anti-reflection (AR) coatings.

“With rising awareness about green trends, the future lies in technologies that offer enhanced energy efficient solutions at a low-cost,” notes Frost & Sullivan’s researchers. “Manufacturers who offer products with optimum performance and are also price-oriented are poised to gain substantial market share.”

“It is important for companies to provide innovative, customised and comprehensive solutions that can improve the efficiency of photovoltaic modules,” advises Frost & Sullivan’s analysts. “At the same time, market participants need to maintain a cost-conscious approach to product development.”
