Research and Markets: Global and Chinese Photovoltaic Glass Industry Report, 2014-2018

Post Time:Feb 04,2015Classify:Industry NewsView:280

Featuring controllable light transmitting, energy-saving & generation and environmental friendliness, photovoltaic glass (PV glass) is primarily applied in solar cell module, and its transparency directly affects conversion efficiency of solar cell. PV glass consists mainly of crystalline silicon PV glass and thin-film PV glass.


PV glass is an important accessory in solar cell industry, growing along with development of PV industry. During 2000-2014, Global installed PV capacity recorded CAGR of 42.9%, compared with 70.7% in China.


Driven by PV industry, China's PV glass consumption has increased gradually, exceeding 200 million m2 in 2014. Since 2006, promoted by big profits and favorable policies, various domestic manufacturers has invested to build PV glass production lines, combined with the shifting of foreign companies into China, thus leading to rapid expansion of PV glass capacity in China. Standard Conditions for the Photovoltaic Manufacturing Industry issued in 2015 lifted access threshold of PV industry, thus decelerating expansion pace of PV glass capacity.


With improvement in return on investment (ROI) in PV-related industries, foreign companies like AGC explore high-end PV glass business via cooperation; domestic flat glass manufacturers including CSG Holding and Xinyi Glass actively expand PV glass capacity; new entrants such as IRICO Electronics and China National Building Materials also make investment in PV glass field.
