Global Solar Encapsulation Market to Reach US$ 4,845.3 Million by 2027, Catalyzed by Increasing Installation of Solar Panels

February 18, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Solar Encapsulation Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," finds that the global solar encapsulation market size reached US$ 2,030.3 Million in 2021. Solar encapsulation is a technique used to encapsulate photovoltaic (PV) cells with a polymeric material, such as ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) film. It provides adhesion between the solar cells, the top surface, and the rear surface of the PV module. It also offers protection against corrosion, ultraviolet (UV) radiation, delamination, mechanical stress, and temperature changes. Moreover, it assists in enhancing the overall performance, durability, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of solar modules. In recent years, solar encapsulation has gained immense traction to protect solar panels and equipment against degradation due to various physical and environmental factors.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Solar Encapsulation Market Trends:

Solar encapsulation helps extend the life of solar cells, eliminate stability issues, and improve the output power of PV modules. As a result, the increasing installation of solar panels across the residential and commercial sectors and the escalating electricity demand represent the primary factors driving the market growth. Besides this, the shifting inclination toward renewable energy sources due to the depleting conventional resources and rising environmental concerns is another major growth-inducing factor. Additionally, governments of various countries are introducing favorable policies and subsidies to promote the installation of solar panels. Along with this, the rising investments toward the modernization of existing infrastructure have catalyzed the market growth. Furthermore, several key players are engaging in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce new encapsulants for emerging PV technologies. This, in line with the launch of low-cost encapsulant materials, such as cadmium telluride, amorphous silicon cells, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), and polyvinyl butyral (PVB), has augmented the product demand. Other factors, including the surging demand for clean and sustainable energy, technological advancements, and emerging solar energy applications for power generation, architecture and agriculture, are also providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 4,845.3 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of around 14.40% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
