CdTe and Commercial Sector to Maintain Dominance among Products Markets and End Users

In 2014, Cadmium telluride (CdTe) cell films were the highest produced solar cell films across the world. The CdTe cell films also reported the highest demand on account of their high efficiency, longevity, and the low cost of manufacturing compared to other solar cell films. Analysts expect this market segment to report the highest growth in the coming years owing to its high capacity to absorb sunlight and the high rate of electricity generation.

Commercial sector has emerged as the biggest consumer of solar cells films in recent times due to the rising usage of electricity in this industry, particularly in peak hours. The low cost of maintenance associated with solar cell films compared to nuclear power facilities is the main reason for the rising uptake of solar cell films in offices, malls, shopping complexes, and multiplexes.

The residential sector is also reporting extensive demand for solar cell films owing to the rising awareness among consumers regarding the benefits of using solar cell films for electricity generation such as reduction in GHG emission and cost-benefits it offer. Other than this, the demand for solar cell films from the industrial sector is also increasing significantly and is expected to maintain a steady pace of growth in the near future.
