Request Discount Enquire Before Buying

Building integrated photovoltaic systems uses solar panels which are incorporated into buildings for electricity generation by transforming solar energy into electrical energy. In addition, BIPV products are capable of providing natural lighting, thermal insulation, structural stability and protection from water and external elements among others. Government growing support in the form of regulations and incentives is aiding the growth of BIPV market. Furthermore, the developments of aesthetic factors are fueling the growth of the market. Major factor that is hindering the growth of this market is the high initial investment cost for consumers. Consumers are required to invest huge sum in infrastructure during initial setup of the building integrated photovoltaics restraining the growth of this market.

Furthermore, lack of expertise in designing and installing building integrated photovoltaics is also a major drawback for the growth of this industry. In addition, no standard units available for measurement of units of energy for phtovoltaics are restraining the growth of the market. Growing trends of building integrated photovoltaics manufacturers collaborating with construction companies are creating new opportunities for the market. In addition, advancement in the field of photvoltaics cells with new cell generation technologies are further creating new opportunities for existing and new players in this market.
