Organic Solar Cells Light the Way with Flexibility, Affordability, and Eco-friendly Innovation for a Sustainable Future

Organic Solar Cells (OPVs) hold significant importance in the field of renewable energy due to their unique properties. Unlike traditional silicon based solar cells, OPVs are lightweight, flexible, and can be produced using cost-effective manufacturing processes such as printing. Their flexibility allows for integration into a variety of surfaces, expanding the possibilities for solar energy applications. OPVs also have the potential for low environmental impact, as they use organic materials.

According to Data Bridge Market Research analyses the Global Organic Solar Cell (OPV) Market is growing with a CAGR of 10.9% in the forecast period of 2023 to 2030 and is expected to reach USD 6,09,271.60 thousand by 2030.  

"Increased environmental concerns boost the market growth"

The global organic solar cell (OPV) market is being driven by increasing awareness and concern about the environmental impact of traditional energy sources, particularly fossil fuels. OPVs offer a more environmentally friendly alternative by harnessing energy from the sun, a renewable and clean source. This not only reduces dependence on finite fossil fuels but also mitigates carbon emissions, contributing to a greener and sustainable energy landscape. As the demand for clean energy solutions rises globally, the OPV market is positioned as a key driver in addressing environmental concerns and promoting a transition towards more sustainable energy sources.

What restraints the growth of the global organic solar cell (OPV) market?

“Low efficiency rate hampers the market growth”

The global organic solar cell (OPV) market faces a significant restraint in the form of lower power conversion efficiency compared to traditional inorganic silicon solar cells. While offering flexibility and adaptability to various surfaces, organic solar cells have struggled to match the efficiency levels of their inorganic counterparts. This efficiency gap hinders the commercialization of organic solar cell technology, especially in applications where high efficiency is critical.
