Flexible Solar Panel Market


Market Insight

Companies in the photovoltaic (PV) industry are focusing on developing flexible solar panel technology as a promising substitute to the traditional rigid photovoltaic systems. Flexible solar panels are made of a thin film of monocrystalline or polycrystalline silicon. Compared to traditional solar panels, flexible solar panels are more lightweight, compact, and durable. These characteristics of flexible solar panels make them suitable for small-scale, mobile applications. Along with being lightweight, and durable, flexible solar panels are easy to install and have low installation costs. Moreover, as technology is developing, flexible solar panels are getting more efficient, and their prices are reducing. The players in the flexible solar panel market are offering a wide range of products to the OEMs, as well as consumers. Many new entrants are emerging across the global market, offering innovative designs for flexible solar panels.


The spread of novel coronavirus had a serious effect on the global flexible solar panels market. Many industries across the world suspended their operations to contain the spread of COVID-19. The COVID-19 pandemic led to the shutdown of the manufacturing of numerous products in the photovoltaic industry, primarily owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries. This significantly hampered the flexible solar panel market over the first half of 2020. Furthermore, the market in China was disrupted by the novel coronavirus. As China is the prominent producer of solar cells, panels, and other components, disruptions in China had a negative impact on the global market. The pandemic delayed deliveries from China, which further failed the market players to comply with deadlines for installations. Lockdown implemented across numerous countries significantly hampered the supply chain of various industries across the world. Hence, the restrictions on imports and exports, raw material supply took longer than usual, which further reduced the production volume.


Factors such as the growing focus on finding clean energy sources for power generation and the increasing demand for mobile PV systems are driving the market growth for flexible solar panels. Governments across the world are setting targets associated with clean energy, which will help to control the pollution level. Furthermore, the growing sale of electric vehicles is anticipated to boost the growth of the market. Several electric vehicles integrate flexible solar panels to charge their batteries. Flexible solar panels in electric vehicles reduced on-grid charging to some extent. This, in turn, reduces the overall carbon footprint of vehicles, making them more environment-friendly. Moreover, the cost-effective nature of flexible solar panels and reductions in technology prices are expected to drive market growth. However, the low power output of flexible solar panels may restrain the market growth in the near future.


Among the regions, Asia Pacific held the largest share in the global flexible solar panels market in 2020. The penetration of flexible solar technology has surged In the Asia Pacific region over the past few years due to its high market potential. Furthermore, the North American region is expected to hold a considerable share in the global flexible solar panels market during the forecast period. The industry is projected to offer enormous opportunities for market growth on account of the presence of various key players across the region. Moreover, factors such as the adoption of flexible solar technology in mobile applications are likely to increase product demand. In addition, the growing adoption of electric vehicles in North America is anticipated to boost the market growth for flexible solar panels.
