Global Solar Photovoltaic Material Market: Overview
Solar photovoltaic materials are the materials that are used in manufacturing of solar panels or modules which are installed for generating electricity. Solar photovoltaic materials are basically of two type’s crystalline and thin film. Crystalline is further divided into polycrystalline and gallium arsenide whereas thin film is of three types’ namely amorphous silicon, cadmium telluride, and copper indium diselenide. Out of all the solar photovoltaic materials, polycrystalline is the most dominant material because of its good efficiency and easy manufacturing process. Thin film materials like cadmium telluride and copper indium diselenide is expected to grow in the near future.
