Industry: Chemicals & Materials


The Global Polymer Photovoltaic Cell Market was valued at USD 698.2 Million in 2021. The market is projected to grow USD 1533.4 Million in 2030, at a CAGR of 25.6%. Electrical energy is a basic requirement, and demand is growing all around the world. Also, the demand for a renewable energy source has grown in importance, and solar energy, which is renewable and backed by the government's ambitious green energy ambitions has become a major attraction for investors. Over the last decade, nations such as China, Germany, and the United States have developed solar powerhouses and expanded solar energy production, which has aided the growth of the polymer photovoltaic cell market. The primary drivers including increased solar energy deployment as a result of supportive government initiatives and targets to incorporate renewable energy as a source of alternative energy and reduce global greenhouse gas (GHG) emission rates. However, the lower efficiency of polymer solar cells compared to silicon solar cells is likely to stifle market growth over the projection period.

The global polymer photovoltaic cell market is negatively impacted with the outbreak of COVID-19. The drop in commercial and other industrial operations as a result of the pandemic is expected to stymie the expansion of the polymer photovoltaic cell sector. The outbreak of Covid-19 has forced governments around the world to deploy severe rules such as lockdown, temporary shutdown, social distancing, caused disruption in production of raw materials and in turn increased costing of raw materials. Shipments of raw materials, as well as revenue produced have fallen. Furthermore, insufficient raw material supply will limit the xx rate of polymer photovoltaic cell, influencing the management of the solar cell supply chain. Many industries in the market have been compelled to halt operations because to the epidemic, in order to comply with government laws such as social distancing. As a result, global 3D photovoltaic cell business conditions have become insecure
