Global Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market Definition
Solar photovoltaic (PV) glass is a type of glass that converts solar energy into electricity using solar cells. It is installed on the roofs or façades of buildings to generate enough energy to power the entire structure. Solar cells are mounted between two glass panes with a specific resin filler in these glasses. Solar cells are firmly wrapped from all sides with these polymers. Each cell has two electrical connections that connect it to other cells to form a module.

COVID-19 Impact on Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market
The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a negative impact on the solar photovoltaic glass market. Lockdowns and import-export restrictions have been imposed around the world as a result of the spread of COVID-19. Due to numerous precautionary lockdowns imposed by governments to control the spread of disease, substantial interruptions in various production and supply-chain processes have resulted in significant financial losses for the market. This has invariably hampered the growth of the worldwide photovoltaic glass market. Due to supply problems, shelter-in-place restrictions, and project financing tightening, solar PV installations are expected to fall significantly in 2020. As a result, the photovoltaic glass market will grow at a slower rate than usual in the foreseeable future.
