Global Building-Integrated Photovoltaic Skylights Market 2017-2021

About Building-Integrated Photovoltaic Skylights

BIPV is a PV material that is used as a substitute for conventional building materials. BIPV integrates solar energy with building designs. The installation of BIPV enables cost-effective generation of electricity among utilities, which boosts the overall revenue of the end-user. BIPV is used in various parts of buildings such as roofs, facades, and skylights. The BIPV technology can be incorporated during the construction of a new building or can be retrofitted into an old building.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global building-integrated photovoltaic skylights market to grow at a CAGR of 10.16% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Building-Integrated Photovoltaic Skylights Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global building-integrated photovoltaic skylights market: Onyx Solar Energy, Polysolar, Super Sky Products, ML System, and EnergyGlass.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Sunovation, ertl-glas (ertex solartechnik), Wuxi Suntech Power, SOLARWATT, Galaxy Energy, Scheuten Glas, Megasol Energie, Romag, Sapa Group (Sapa Building System), asola Technologies, Kaneka Corporation, AGC Solar, ISSOL, ClearVue Technologies, g2e glass2energy, Interpane Glas Industrie, KURARAY, Solarnova, TAIYO KOGYO, Lumos Solar, Heliatek, Thermosash, Asahi Glass, Prism Solar, Sunpreme, Solaria, TULiPPS BV, and SolarWorld.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is advent of innovative materials. To move beyond a niche product, BIPV skylights will need to demonstrate both improved efficiency and lower cost. BIPV skylights are expected to benefit from the enormous growth that is anticipated in the PV market as a whole. However, the degree to which BIPV skylights succeed is expected to depend on advances in technology and choice of PV materials. This may require switching to the improved or entirely different material than what is commonly used today. Some of the trending new materials used in BIPV skylights are as follows.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growing need for energy cost reduction. Commercial buildings, healthcare facilities, and manufacturing plants are the most energy-intensive end-users. They need to function around the clock and use various equipment for the upkeep of their in-house operations. This requires a high use of electricity, with a significant amount of money spent on energy bills. The growing number of commercial buildings with large floor spaces is adding to the energy cost of the building sector.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is complexities associated with BIPV installation. The installation of a BIPV system includes the designing of custom products (solar panels), fabrication of racking systems, and complex architecture of solar power systems. Moreover, the installation of a BIPV system needs high levels of expertise and safety measures. A BIPV system should not be installed when laminates are wet. In addition, a system should not be installed near roofing drains.
