The global building integrated photovoltaics market size was estimated at USD 19.7 billion in 2021 and it is expected to expand around USD 132.6 billion by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 23.6% during the forecast period from 2022 to 2030.
The building integrated photovoltaics are used as substitutes for the certain conventional building materials. They could be used in the roof, the skylights and the facades. Building integrated photovoltaics are incorporated in construction and they are also known as solar panels.
The manufacturing activities of the building integrated photovoltaics market had been affected significantly due to the lockdown. A large number of PV modules are manufactured in China and the production and supply chain had taken a significant hit during the pandemic. Disruptions in transporting of goods and delay in supply chains had drastically affected the manufacturing capacity of China. The recovery of the market has commenced since the year 2021.
The reason for a rise in demand for the building integrated photovoltaic is an increase in the integration of solar energy solutions in various commercial buildings. They provide architectural optimization and conservation of energy. In order to comply with government regulations and for sustainable development the demands are high for solar power generation. The depleting of non-renewable power sources are also leading to an increase in demand for PVs. Various construction and building sectors are focusing on clean energy, as there's a rise in demand for zero-emission buildings. The awareness about the ecological benefits of IPV have also resulted in the demand for the same. It helps in reducing carbon footprints as it is a clean source of energy. Constant technological advancements and increased wireless connectivity have increased the use of automated IPV components which helped in the growth of the market of Building Integrated Photovoltaics market.
