Research and Markets has included a new report titled ‘Dye Sensitized Cell Markets - 2012’ to its catalogue.
In the last two years, the market for dye sensitized cells (DSCs) has matured and has exited the research and development phase. DSCs can now deliver a performance comparable to that of amorphous silicon photovoltaic cells. DSCs hold more potential for performance enhancements than a-Si counterpart. DSCs can also be installed on flexible substrates are capable of performing under non-peak insolation.
This report analyzes latest advancements in the DSC market in detail and covers latest technical developments, strategies and products. It examines the role of performance enhancements in developing new potential markets for DSCs and the ways of finding these new markets. Particularly, the report studies the market prospect for DSC in the BIPV sector.
The report also discusses the advancements of DSCs in terms of commercial importance. For instance, efforts that have taken place to lower the cost of electrodes and dyes. It also features NanoMarkets' evaluations of the strategies adopted by the major companies operating in the DSC field. It also provides forecast data for DSC panels and materials shipments in terms of value and volume.
Companies mentioned in the report include 3GSolar, Dyesol, Fujikura, G24 Innovations, NLAB Solar, Oxford Photovoltaics, Peccell, Solaronix, SolarPrint, BASF, and Everlight Chemical. Chapters covered in the report include Introduction to the Dye Sensitized Solar Cell Market; DSC Market Evolution; DSC Products and Market Strategies; and DSC Markets and Forecasts.
