Building Integrated Photovoltaics Market Trends/Drivers:

Government Initiatives and Favorable Regulations Driving Market Growth

Governments worldwide have recognized the importance of renewable energy sources in mitigating the effects of climate change and have implemented several initiatives to promote their adoption. These initiatives typically come in the form of incentives, such as tax breaks, subsidies, or feed-in tariffs. For instance, feed-in tariffs guarantee a certain payment for electricity generated from renewable sources, thereby providing a stable and predictable revenue stream for investors in BIPV. Furthermore, some governments have set regulatory mandates requiring new buildings or renovations to incorporate energy-saving designs, which often include BIPV systems. These government initiatives are playing a crucial role in accelerating the building integrated photovoltaics market growth.

Technological Advancements are Leading to Improved Adoption

Technology in the BIPV sector is continually evolving to increase the efficiency and aesthetics of photovoltaic materials. For instance, the development of thin-film photovoltaics, which are lighter and more flexible than traditional silicon panels, are creating new possibilities for BIPV applications. Similarly, advances in solar cell design have led to the development of colored and semi-transparent solar panels, thereby enabling architects to incorporate solar technology into building designs without compromising the aesthetics. In addition to this, there is ongoing research to improve the energy conversion efficiency of photovoltaic materials, which is projected to enhance the output of BIPV systems, thereby offering a favorable building integrated photovoltaics market outlook.

Rise in Green Building Practices Supporting the Demand for BIPV

There is a growing shift toward green and sustainable building practices. Green building certifications, such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) award points are offered with the aim of encouraging the integration of renewable energy systems, including BIPV. These certifications are often pursued by developers to improve a building's marketability. Furthermore, as societal awareness and concerns about climate change increase, many companies are choosing to 'go green' to enhance their corporate social responsibility profiles. This trend towards green buildings is boosting the building integrated photovoltaics market demand. Additionally, BIPV systems can significantly reduce a building's energy costs. They reduce the need for expensive grid electricity by generating electricity onsite, as well as provide additional energy savings by improving the building's thermal insulation and reducing cooling costs.

Building Integrated Photovoltaics Industry Segmentation:

IMARC Group provides an analysis of the key trends in each segment of the global building integrated photovoltaics market report, along with forecasts at the global and regional levels from 2024-2032. Our report has categorized the market based on product type, application, and end use.

Breakup by Product Type:

  • Polycrystalline
  • Thin Film
  • Others

Polycrystalline BIPV dominates the market

The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the building integrated photovoltaics market based on the product type. This includes polycrystalline, thin film, and others. According to the report, polycrystalline represented the largest segment.

Polycrystalline silicon, also known as multi-crystalline silicon or polysilicon, is widely used in BIPV. They are typically less expensive to produce than monocrystalline PVs, which makes them a more cost-effective option, especially for larger installations. The manufacturing process for polycrystalline solar cells is less energy-intensive and wasteful as compared to that of monocrystalline cells. In addition to this, as polycrystalline panels have slightly better heat tolerance than monocrystalline panels, they do not degrade as quickly in high temperatures, which can be advantageous in warmer climates.

In recent years, other types of solar technology, such as thin-film and perovskite solar cells, have also gained traction for their use in BIPV applications due to their flexibility and aesthetic qualities.

Breakup by Application:

  • Roof
  • Facades
  • Glass
  • Others

Roof hold the leading position in the market

The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the building integrated photovoltaics market based on the application. This includes roof, facades, glass, and others. According to the report, roofs represented the largest segment.

BIPV are most commonly used in roofs as they experience the most direct and unobstructed exposure to sunlight, particularly in high-rise buildings. This makes them an ideal location for photovoltaic systems that require ample sunlight to generate electricity efficiently. Moreover, BIPV systems can be integrated with roofing materials during construction or renovation, replacing conventional alternatives. This helps in generating electricity but also provides weatherproofing and can enhance the building's aesthetic appeal. Furthermore, installing BIPVs on the roof is easier and less disruptive to the building's design and occupants. Roof-integrated photovoltaics can also contribute to the overall energy efficiency of a building. They can provide shading, thereby reducing cooling loads, and can contribute to thermal insulation.

Breakup by End Use:

  • Commercial
  • Residential
  • Industrial

Commercial represents the largest end use segment in the market

A detailed breakup and analysis of the building integrated photovoltaics market based on the end use has also been provided in the report. This includes commercial, residential, and industrial. According to the report, the commercial segment accounted for the largest market share.

BIPV have witnessed significant adoption in the commercial sector. Commercial buildings usually have larger roof areas and facades compared to residential buildings, providing ample space to install BIPV systems. These buildings also have higher energy usage during daylight hours, which coincides with the electricity production from BIPV systems. This alignment allows for more effective use of the generated electricity, reducing reliance on the grid and leading to substantial cost savings. In addition to this, many corporations and institutions are adopting sustainability targets as a part of their corporate social responsibility initiatives. Implementing BIPV helps them to lower their carbon footprint and demonstrate their commitment to renewable energy and sustainable practices.

Breakup by Region:

  • Europe
  • North America
  • Asia Pacific
  • Middle East and Africa
  • Latin America

Europe exhibits a clear dominance, accounting for the largest building integrated photovoltaics market share

The report has also provided a comprehensive analysis of all the major regional markets, which include North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. According to the report, Europe represents the leading market for building integrated photovoltaics.

The Europe BIPV market is primarily driven by a robust regulatory framework that supports the use of renewable energy sources. Additionally, many European countries offer incentives, such as feed-in tariffs and tax credits, to encourage the use of renewable energy. Moreover, Europe is at the forefront of the fight against climate change and has committed to significant greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions under the Paris Agreement (2015). This commitment has driven a strong push towards renewable energy sources, including BIPV. In addition to this, Europe is home to several key players in the BIPV market who are leading technological innovation in this field. The presence of these companies, along with strong research and development (R&D) capabilities, is driving the BIPV market in the region.
