The global solar backsheet market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 7% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
A solar backsheet refers to the outermost layer of a photovoltaic (PV) unit used to protect and shield the internal peripherals of the solar module. Some of the commonly used solar backsheets include non-, single- and double-fluoropolymer backsheets that can be mounted on the roof, ground or floating power plants. These backsheets are usually manufactured using polymers or a combination of polymers and placed at the bottom of the solar panel. They are highly robust and exhibit high electrical insulation and protective properties against external impacts, dust, chemicals, sand, wind, extreme temperatures, moisture and ultraviolet (UV) radiations. They also offer various favorable mechanical, electrical, optical and chemical properties essential for the overall durability and safety of the photovoltaic modules.
A significant increase in the number of solar panel installations across the globe represents one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the implementation of favorable government policies promoting various solar energy projects is also stimulating the market growth. Due to the rising preference for sustainable energy resources and the increasing emphasis on utility-scale projects, there is an escalating demand for solar roof-tops with efficient backsheets across the residential, commercial and industrial sectors. This, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of advanced fluoropolymer backsheets, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These variants offer enhanced hydrolytic stability and resistance to extreme weather conditions. Other factors, including the increasing development of micro-grid networks to meet the rising off-grid energy demands, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market further.
