Building Integrated Photovoltaics Market overview

According to the latest research report, The Building Integrated Photovoltaics Market size is expected to reach USD 40.82 Billion by 2026, growing at a 17.93% CAGR between 2020 and 2026.

Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPVs) are solar power producing components utilised in the construction of building facades, roofs, and skylights. In general, these components comprise photovoltaic module integration, a backup generators supply system, a charge controller, a power storage system, and other supporting gear. BIPV materials outperform their traditional equivalents in numerous ways, including onsite power production, zero emissions, high energy saving, improved architectural incorporation, and optimum shading. Furthermore, by replacing gable roof membranes, skylight glass, façade cladding, and so on, BIPVs assist to reduce labour and installation costs. Because of these advantages, building integrated photovoltaic materials are widely used in the corporate, domestic, and manufacturing industries.

National governments' growing efforts to instal solar energy panels are expected to boost the industry during the next seven years. The greater awareness of infrastructure development, particularly energy-efficient buildings, is projected to increase demand for building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). BIPV is a long-term and cost-effective option for improving the structure's fuel efficiency, retrofitting the structure's façade, and offering considerable savings in conventional power usage. Furthermore, greater consumer conscious of the health benefits of BIPV has resulted in increased household adoption of solar energy harvesting systems. Aside from that, the introduction of favourable government regulations backed up by a number of efforts stressing the need to reduce carbon footprints has spurred worldwide demand for building-integrated photovoltaics market growth.

Market Dynamic

  •         Drivers

The growing integration of solar energy solutions in commercial structures for architectural optimization and energy saving can be linked to the increased demand for building integrated photovoltaic materials. Furthermore, rising environmental worries about the depletion of non-renewable energy supplies such as oil, coal, and others have increased competition for solar power generation. Furthermore, a dramatic rise in the design and construction sectors, as well as an increased emphasis on clean energy, have driven demand for green or zero-emission structures.

  •         Opportunities

Futuristic breakthroughs in mainstream solar and other related technologies are anticipated to increase investor trust in the industry, resulting in increased investment for R&D operations. Technology start-ups are likely to enter the market for developing integrated photovoltaics and use innovative and current technology with proven characteristics. Existing suppliers will continue to update their product portfolios. Thus, over the predicted period, new and efficient solar panels will provide opportunities.

  •         Restraints

One of the key constraints of the BIPV industry is the falling cost and increasing technology of rooftop solar PV, which is significantly faster than that of BIPV, resulting in the majority of customers preferring rooftop solar over BIPV.

  •         Challenges

The absence of uniformity in photovoltaic tiles is posing a challenge to the sharp growth in demand for BIPV roof solutions. Because of the slanting roof designs, the roof goods have a great potential in Major nations. Thin-film BIPV and facade applications, on the other hand, are more prevalent in APAC and MEA areas where the roof design is typically flat.

Cumulative Growth Analysis

In recent years, the European Union, the United States, and other developed nations have moved their attention considerably toward net-zero-energy building design or construction (or nearly zero energy building). Furthermore, numerous goals and targets for implementing zero-energy buildings have either been declared or are being considered and suggested at the worldwide level. This, in turn, is projected to provide considerable future possibilities for BIPV technology vendors. Europe dominated the global market due to the region's clean energy ambitions and the lofty standards established to guarantee that all new buildings utilize very little net energy by 2020, giving rise to the term "nearly zero-energy building" or nZEB.

The crystalline module is the most common solar photovoltaic (PV) technology utilized in the BIPV industry. Aside from that, traditional solar technology based on crystalline silicon accounts for more than 80% of the solar business. As the most developed and commonly used material for BIPV, crystalline silicon is employed in the majority of solar panels used for facades, curtain walls, and rooftops. Crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules are constructed from crystalline silicon produced utilizing microelectronics technologies. Mono-crystalline silicon and polycrystalline silicon are the two kinds of crystalline silicon solar cells utilized in crystalline silicon photovoltaics.

Value Chain Analysis

The global market for building integrated photovoltaics market has been divided into product, application, technology, and region segments. The worldwide market is segmented by product into roofing, wall integrated solutions, glass, façade, and others. During the projected period, the roof segment is predicted to have the highest building integrated photovoltaics market share. The glass category, on the other hand, is anticipated to develop at the quickest rate in the worldwide market. The global market is divided into three applications: industrial buildings, office properties, and housing developments. The industrial buildings sector is expected to expand at the quickest rate during the projected period, owing to the increasing use of solar systems to reduce reliance on non - renewable energy sources for power generation. The worldwide market has been split into crystalline silicon and thin-film technologies based on technology. The crystalline category is projected to account for a higher part of the worldwide market for constructing integrated photovoltaics.

Regional Analysis

According to the reports, on the basis of region, the market is divided into five regions: Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and South America. Due to the cheap cost of production in countries like China and India, Asia-Pacific has the biggest building integrated photovoltaics market share. Furthermore, the market in Asia-Pacific is anticipated to expand at the highest rate during the study period, owing to a slew of government programs launched in the area to boost renewable energy installations. Europe is expected to maintain its lead in the global BIPV market in terms of installation, owing to an increased customer willingness to adopt practices as a result of progressively strict government regulations, as well as rising pressure to reduce net energy usage from buildings in order to reduce CO2 emissions.

Based on its new energy policy, the European Union wants to attain at least a 27 percent proportion of renewable energy consumption by 2030 and to have all new buildings be virtually zero energy buildings (NZEB) by 2020. The European BIPV market is in transition, and the regulatory framework is having a beneficial influence. The European Union (EU) established the Directive on Energy Usage in Buildings (EPBD) (Directive 2010/31/EU) and the Renewable Power Directive (1/77/EC), opening the path for near-zero and positive energy buildings.

Competitive landscape

To expand their worldwide footprint, industry participants are pursuing strategic initiatives such as new product development and mergers and acquisitions. Furthermore, industry participants are spending in research and development to lower the overall cost of BIPV installations. Local production is used by industry to provide local jobs, save transport costs, and reduce pollution. Because manufacturers are set up with end-users obtaining BIPV in large amounts, forward integration is projected to minimize firms' sensitivity to investment risk.
