NanoMarkets Announces New Addition to its Line-Up of Thin Film Photovoltaic Reports

GLEN ALLEN, Va., April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoMarkets announced today a new addition to its line-up of reports covering the thin film solar energy market. The report, Thin Film Photovoltaics Markets: 2008 and Beyond is scheduled to be released late in the second quarter of 2008. Additional details about the report, including the first chapter, are available on the firm's website at http://www.nanomarkets.net/.

About the Report:

Thin Film Photovoltaics Markets: 2008 and Beyond offers a fresh assessment of where the thin-film photovoltaics (PV) market is headed over the next eight years as well as analysis of the strategies of leading firms active in this space. The materials platforms covered include amorphous silicon, CIGS, CdTe, and GaAs as well as interesting materials and architectures for thin-film PV that are about to emerge from the laboratory. Each of these technologies is reviewed in terms of their key performance characteristics (e.g., conversion efficiencies, costs per watt) and how these might improve in the future. The report also looks at the evolution of roll-to-roll, printing and other manufacturing processes that will significantly impact the cost of thin-film PV in the future. Also examined is which market segments are likely to generate significant revenues for thin-film PV including building integrated systems; mobile and wearable computing; central power generation; disposable electronics; portable and emergency power (including battery chargers) and military and aerospace applications. Finally, the report contains detailed eight-year forecasts of PV shipments broken out by technology type and application.

Other Energy Reports from NanoMarkets: Organic Photovoltaic Markets

This upcoming report from NanoMarkets analyzes and quantifies the market for organic photovoltaics(OPV) over the next eight years. It provides capacity and market forecasts, profiles both materials and solar panel firms to watch in the OPV space and takes a hard look at investment trends impacting the OPV business. Beginning with an examination of the current state of the art in OPV, the report discusses performance issues and the various materials options including "pure" polymer approaches, small molecules, DSSC's and hybrid approaches. An analysis follows of future applications of OPV in traditional areas, as well as novel uses in integrated building systems, signage and consumer electronics. The report ends with detailed forecasts of OPV markets broken out by application, production technology and material.
