Perovskite solar cell is a type of solar cell that is made of a perovskite structured compound, typically a hybrid organic-inorganic lead or tin halide-based material. This class of materials has a unique crystal structure that efficiently converts sunlight into electrical energy. These cells have gained significant attention due to their potential to provide high power conversion efficiencies, low manufacturing costs, and easy fabrication processes. However, some challenges still need to be addressed, such as improving the stability and durability of the materials in real-world conditions.

These solar cells have made remarkable progress, with rapid increases in efficiency, from reports of around 3% in 2009 to over 25% in 2021. These cells have become highly efficient, but several challenges still remain to be addressed as they may become a competitive commercial technology. Also, the impact of this outbreak exposed various problems, such as the overdependence of the renewable energy sector of many countries on imports from other nations, particularly China. As per the Government of India, a major share of solar panels and modules are imported from China, along with other equipment, such as prefabricated structures, raw materials, and inverters in India.

Perovskite Solar Cell Market Trends

Rapid Improvisation of Perovskite Solar Cells Set to Create Vast Market Opportunity

Perovskite solar cells are a promising technology for solar energy conversion, potentially revolutionizing the solar panel industry. Module offerings across the world are currently dominated by the mono-Si wafer technology, but the performance of silicon-based cells is approaching its limit, and perovskite technologies have improved tremendously in recent years.

Furthermore, perovskite materials are crystal-like, offering strong light absorption and electric charge properties. As solar energy developers seek higher efficiencies and lower costs of energy, tandem cells combining silicon with perovskite are widely considered to be the next step.

Perovskite Solar Cell (PVSC) can probably be used as a replacement for existing solar panels. The benefits of less lead involvement in the chemical structure and better end-of-life support have boosted exploration. Combinatorial studies in perovskites have created a collection of diverse chemical designs with unique properties and enhanced functionalities. Investigations into the catalytic nature, environmental adaptability, and spintronic properties provide clear structural arrangements.

Moreover, perovskite solar cells can be integrated into the design of buildings, such as windows and facades to generate electricity while also serving as a building material. Overall, the market opportunities for these cells are vast and diverse, with potential end-users in a wide range of industries. However, some technical and economic challenges still need to be solved before these solar cells can reach their full potential in the market.

Perovskite Solar Cell Market Growth Factors

Cost-Effectiveness and High-Efficiency Features Likely to Enhance Market Growth

Perovskite solar cells have generated a lot of interest in recent years because they have the potential to be highly efficient and low-cost. These cells are considered highly efficient, with some research demonstrating efficiencies exceeding with time. Additionally, these solar cells have power conversion capabilities and can perform better than other solar panels. Furthermore, perovskite solar panels produce electricity from sunlight, irrespective of the sun rays being real or artificial. This feature makes them an attractive option for renewable energy end-users. Furthermore, these products are made using inexpensive materials and can be manufactured using simple and scalable processes. This can lead to lower production costs and lower prices for consumers, further enhancing the perovskite solar cell market growth.

Flexibility Coupled with Sustainability to Boost Technology Demand & Adoption 

Perovskite solar cells are made of flexible materials that can be produced in various sizes and shapes including flexible and transparent versions. This factor makes them suitable for various end-users including Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), portable electronics, and clothing. Additionally, perovskite solar panels are made using abundant and widely available materials. They also have a lower carbon footprint than traditional silicon-based solar cells, making them a more sustainable option for generating renewable energy.

Significant research and development programs are also being conducted on perovskite solar panels, with many universities and companies investing in this technology. This can lead to rapid advancements in efficiency, stability, and manufacturing processes. Overall, the combination of high efficiency, low cost, flexibility, sustainability, and ongoing research & development make these solar panels an attractive option for the renewable energy market.


Instability and Presence of Toxic Materials to Restrain Market Growth

Perovskite solar cells have great potential for efficient and low-cost solar energy generation. However, their instability and the presence of toxic materials are major market restraints. The implementation and commercialization of perovskite solar cells (PSCs) is hindered by toxic lead. Although PSCs based on organic charge transport layers (CTLs) have achieved tremendous efficiency improvement, they are not stable due to the structure of organic materials. The commercialization of perovskite solar cells raises serious environmental concerns due to toxic lead.

These solar cells are known to be unstable and degrade quickly in the presence of moisture and heat. The research and development associations are focusing on improving the product’s operation and lifetime and working to understand and improve their stability. Lead-based cells, which have demonstrated the highest efficiency, are toxic and pose potential health and environmental risks. This can affect the environment by contaminating air, water, and soil. Moreover, perovskites have a crystal structure like the perovskite mineral, which consists of calcium titanium oxide. During the breakdown of perovskite, its toxic substances, known as Pbl, can affect our respiratory system.

Additionally, this solar cell technology faces strong competition from established solar cell technologies, such as silicon-based solar cells that have a proven stability and efficiency track record. While these solar cells have great potential, some market restraints must be addressed before they can be widely adopted as mainstream solar cell technology.
