Perovskite solar cells are a photovoltaic technology type that incorporates perovskite-structured materials to convert sunlight into electricity. The perovskite structure refers to a specific arrangement of atoms that displays remarkable efficiency in capturing solar energy. Moreover, the product has gained significant attention and research interest due to its potential to revolutionize the solar energy industry. These cells have demonstrated the potential for high power conversion efficiencies comparable to traditional silicon-based solar cells. This makes them an attractive option for generating electricity from sunlight. In addition, they can be manufactured using low-cost materials and processes, potentially reducing the overall cost of solar energy production.

The solar industry, such as many others, experienced disruptions in supply chains due to lockdowns, restrictions, and other measures implemented to curb the spread of COVID-19. Delays in the production and transportation of materials and components affected the manufacturing of perovskite solar cells. Many solar projects faced delays or postponements as a result of lockdowns, labor shortages, and economic uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The slowdown in project implementation impacted the demand for cells.

Stability and Durability Issues in the Product May Restrain Market Growth

Over the past years, perovskite solar cells have struggled with stability and durability issues, particularly in the face of moisture, heat, and UV exposure. These cells tend to degrade faster than traditional silicon solar cells, making them less suitable for long-term use in various environments. In addition, some perovskite materials contain lead, which raises concerns about the potential environmental impact and long-term toxicity. This has led to regulatory and public perception challenges, especially in regions with strict environmental regulations. While the product has displayed great promise in the lab, scaling up production to commercial levels has proven to be a significant challenge. Achieving consistent quality and large-scale manufacturing at competitive costs has also been a hurdle for the U.S. market growth.

Moreover, the perovskite solar cell field is still evolving, and there have been intellectual property and patent disputes that can slow down research and development efforts. Standardization of materials, fabrication processes, and testing protocols is important for ensuring the reliability and comparability of the product. Furthermore, a lack of standardization can also hinder widespread adoption.

U.S. Perovskite Solar Cell Market Segmentation Analysis

By Type Analysis

Based on type, the market is segmented into rigid and flexible.

The flexible segment accounted for the largest U.S. perovskite solar cell market share in 2022, owing to the adoption of flexible products into a wide range of surfaces, including curved or irregular shapes, such as clothing, backpacks, tents, vehicles, and even wearable devices. This versatility opens up new possibilities for solar energy generation in environments where rigid panels would be impractical or impossible to use. In addition, flexibility allows for easy transportation and deployment. These lightweight and portable solar cells can be rolled or folded, making them suitable for temporary installations or on-the-go power generation.

Ongoing research and development efforts in the field of perovskite solar cells have led to advancements in technology, improving the efficiency and stability of these cells. Technological progress can make rigid perovskite solar cells more competitive and attractive for various applications. These cells have displayed improvements in efficiency and performance over time. Higher efficiency means better energy conversion, making them more appealing for practical applications.
