The global solar photovoltaic glass market size reached US$ 12.1 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 41.7 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 20.75% during 2023-2028.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) glass is a specially engineered construction glass that utilizes transparent semiconductor-based PV or solar cells to convert solar energy into electricity. Usually installed on windows, skylights, roofs or façades, these types of glass are extensively used to generate energy that can be used to power an entire building. A super clear float glass is used for thin film solar cells, whereas an ultra-clear figured glass cover is used for crystalline silicon solar cells. As solar PV glass technology utilizes sustainable sources of energy, it is rapidly gaining traction across the globe while gradually replacing conventional building materials in the residential and commercial segments.
Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market Trends:
The global market is majorly driven by the increasing preference for green construction due to an enhanced focus on sustainable development. In line with this, numerous favorable government initiatives supporting the construction and upgradation of solar PV plants to promote the adoption of clean energy are providing an impetus to the market growth. Continual product innovations, such as the development of ergonomic PV glass variants having higher efficacy and superior thermal insulation, are also acting as significant growth-inducing factors for the market on the global level. Apart from this, the reduced production costs of solar PV glass due to the rising deployment of feed-in tariff (FIT) programs are creating a positive outlook for the market. Other factors, such as extensive research and development (R&D) activities, the growing concerns regarding the depletion of fossil fuels, and the escalating need to limit environmental degradation, are further creating lucrative growth opportunities for key players operating in the global market.
