However, these cells degrade during dark, have issues with thermal stability, and cannot be used for longer durations which are factors hindering the market growth.

Market Synopsis

Junction Type Analysis

"Bulk Heterojunction segment to dominate the market throughout the forecast period"

On the basis of junction type, the polymer solar cells market is further classified into single layer, bilayer, bulk heterojunction, multi-junction, and others. Bulk heterojunction segment dominated the polymer solar cells market and contributed for a revenue share of more than 25% of the global market. This can be attributed to the benefits offered by it including low weight, semitransparency, and easy integration with other products among others.

In contrast, multi-junction segment is projected to expand with highest growth rate throughout the years to come. This can be associated with the advantages provided by them including absorbing different wavelengths, high efficiency, and lower bandgap among others.

Application Analysis

"BIPV segment expected to dominate the market during the forecast period"

On the basis of application, the global polymer solar cells market is bifurcated into BIPV (building integrated photovoltaic), consumer electronics, automotive, defence & emergency, and others. The BIPV segment dominated the global polymer solar cells market and growing with the highest rate. The segment is expected to continue this trend during the forecast period and contributed XX% of revenue share. This can be attributed to favorable rules &regulations to enhance renewable installations and increasing adoption of renewable energy sources among others

On the other hand, the BIPV segment is followed by consumer electronics segment and is expected to grow significantly during the years to come.

Regional Analysis

"Asia Pacific region dominated the global polymer solar cells market"

Asia Pacific region led the polymer solar cells market and represents US$ XX Bn in terms of market share and is anticipated to register a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. This can be attributed to rapidly evolving building and construction sector in the developing nations such as China, and India among others. The rising per capita income coupled with rapid urbanization are factors propelling the polymer solar cells market growth in the region.

On the other hand, North America region is anticipated to grow with a significant rate owing to presence of large number of manufacturers in the region and increasing number of renewable energy projects in the region. The US holds the major share in the region accounting for approximately 80% of market share.
