NanoMarkets, the leading provider of industry analysis and market and technology research services for companies competing for or interested in thin film, organic and printable electronics related markets, today announced that it has added a new report to its schedule titled, "Building-Integrated Photovoltaics Markets 2009 and Beyond". The report will be released in early August 2009. For additional details about the report please visit the firm's website at www.nanomarkets.net.
In 2008 NanoMarkets released one of the industry's first reports on the emerging building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) business. Continuing in our coverage of this market, NanoMarkets newest upcoming report will pay special attention to the exciting new products coming on line that incorporate PV cells into actual building materials like siding, windows, and roofing shingles. The report will also analyze and quantify the current and future markets for BIPV products in light of current conditions in real estate, construction, finance and reduced energy prices. The report focuses on how BIPV technologies can break into the market now and how planners at BIPV firms can ensure that their products will do well once the new construction market begins to stabilize and how they can also best meet the demands of the retrofit market.
The report will also discuss the materials and technology aspects of BIPV; we look at how traditional crystalline silicon firms PV can best fit their products into the new BIPV environment and how the new TFPV and OPV/DSC technologies -- with their light weight and flexibility -- can be leveraged for BIPV applications. The report also goes into depth on the market, policy and technology factors that make BIPV more popular in some regions versus others. Finally, our eight-year forecasts of the BIPV market quantify the opportunities in BIPV by region and by product type.
