REPORT # Nano-517 PUBLISHED February 23, 2012
BIPV Glass Markets -2012
  • Glass and Glazing
  • Renewable Energy

    This report builds on the considerable amount of industry analysis that NanoMarkets has carried out in the BIPV, smart windows and related markets to provide an eight year forecast and roadmap for BIPV products.

    This report examines and quantifies the market for BIPV products worldwide with coverage of both commercial and residential markets and a special consideration of the immediate market for BIPV in prestige buildings of various kinds.  This analysis is carried out in the context of the latest developments in regional and national PV regulatory policy and construction industry trends.

    The report also projects the development of BIPV glass systems themselves showing how they are expected to evolve from relatively crude systems with low levels of transparency to true integrations of PV and window glass.  The report also looks at what the implications of all of this is in terms of opportunities for both PV and glass firms and assesses the current strategies of firms already pursuing the BIPV glass market.  And as with all NanoMarkets reports, this report contains granular eight-year forecasts in both MW and dollar terms of BIPV glass markets, with breakouts by end user, type of product and type of PV technology.
