Market Driver

Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) is a significant market segment in the construction industry, addressing the pressing need for energy efficiency in buildings. With energy consumption accounting for 40% of the global total and buildings being the largest greenhouse gas emitters, BIPV systems offer a solution. These systems integrate solar panels into building structures, such as roofs and walls, to generate electricity and reduce reliance on conventional power sources. BIPV systems include Crystalline PV, Thin-film PV, and Organic Photovoltaics. The residential, commercial, and industrial sectors are adopting BIPV, driven by factors like energy bills, carbon footprint reduction, and health benefits. The solar panel market is growing, with increasing disposable income levels and the availability of renewable energy sources. BIPV systems are installed using integrated roof systems, solar walls, and building-integrated walls, with shading and membranes for optimal performance. The industrial segment is a major contributor to the BIPV market’s growth. 

Market Challenges

  • The intermittent nature of solar power poses a significant challenge to market growth despite the declining prices of solar energy.
  • Increased adoption of photovoltaic (PV) systems has led to numerous installations, but the intermittent nature of solar power remains a key issue.
  • Solar PV power output depends on factors like panel efficiency, solar irradiation, and shading levels, which vary throughout the day and due to cloud cover.
  • Additionally, solar energy systems are often connected to the electricity grid, further complicating management.
  • Grid operators face challenges in managing fluctuations in power supply caused by the intermittent nature of solar energy.
  • This intermittency also impacts power systems, making a 100% standalone solar power system impractical.
  • The misalignment between energy production and demand timing further complicates the situation.
  • Consequently, the intermittent nature of solar power is expected to hinder market growth during the forecast period.

1.1 Commercial- The Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) market is experiencing significant growth, particularly in the commercial sector. With the increasing awareness of the depletion of non-renewable power resources, such as oil and coal, there is a pressing need for clean energy solutions. Solar power generation, a key component of BIPV systems, offers ecological benefits and reduces carbon footprints. BIPV components, including solar energy panels, can be integrated into roofs, walls, glass, and façades, providing wireless connectivity and heat generation. Governments worldwide are promoting the adoption of BIPV systems as part of their initiatives to improve energy management in buildings. These initiatives include financial incentives for the development of alternative energy sources and the promotion of energy-efficient buildings. The recovery from the economic downturn has led to a renewed focus on fuel efficiency and a reduction in conventional power usage. Moreover, the health benefits associated with BIPV systems, such as reduced energy bills and a smaller carbon footprint, have led to household adoption. The residential sector is following the commercial and industrial sectors in the adoption of BIPV systems, with thin-film PV and crystalline PV being popular choices. However, labor shortages in the installation and maintenance of these systems pose a challenge to the industry’s growth. Despite this, the future of BIPV systems looks promising as they continue to offer significant energy savings and contribute to a cleaner environment.
