  • 1. Get more info on this report!Thin Film Solar PV Manufacturing Equipment WorldwideJuly 1, 2011Out of the over 38.2 gigawatts (GW) of production capacity added to the global solarphotovoltaic (PV) manufacturing industry during the past five years, nearly 20% or 7.5GW of the capacity was for the production of thin film solar photovoltaic (TFPV)technologies. Thin film PV technologies are produced through deposition processes andproduction line equipment distinct from conventional, market leading crystalline silicon(c-Si) solar PV technologies. Thin film PV technologies use “thin” vapor deposited orphysically applied semiconductor active layers that use substantially less of alternativematerials. Other PV technologies using TFPV manufacturing equipment and similarproduction processes include multijunction / III-V elemental compound solar cells, dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC), and organic PV (OPV).The crystalline silicon PV supply chain - silicon feedstocks, ingots, wafers, cells andmodules - is the primary beneficiary of global industry investment. The global productioncapacity for c-Si PV cells is over four times that for all TFPV technologies. The currentglobal market share for c-Si PV modules is above 80% with the remaining share largelyrepresented by CdTe TFPV module production.. First Solar’s expansion in theproduction of CdTe TFPV modules and a rising bubble in investment in thin film siliconPV technologies led phenomenal growth in the market for TFPV manufacturingequipment. While the commanding global market share has not been lost by c-Si PV, ithas been pressured by c-Si PV technology’s more intricate supply chain. Shortages insolar-grade silicon metal and polysilicon pushed up c-Si PV supply chain prices fromsilicon feedstocks to modules. New and existing PV producers responded by investingin TFPV technologies as a means of reducing material consumption (in the case of thinfilm silicon technologies) and eliminating dependence upon crystalline silicon supplies.The diversity of thin film PV technologies had aided continued growth in industry capitalexpenditures for TFPV manufacturing equipment. Thin film PV technologies willcontinue to capture shares of global PV industry investment based upon their individualstrengths in production and performance: CIGS PV has the highest demonstratedefficiency for major thin film technologies, CdTe is an established low-cost PV product,and thin film silicon PV technologies are well represented by OEM suppliers in terms ofturnkey production lines and a broad base of industry experience in production.
  • 2. Supported by persistent industry interest in the production advantages and designflexibility of thin film PV technologies, thin film solar PV manufacturing equipment willcontinue to represent a diverse range of high-growth capital equipment markets. From atotal market value of $384 million in 2006, the global TFPV manufacturing equipmentmarket is estimated by SBI Energy to have reached $3.2 billion in 2010 for a CAGR of70.3%. The total market is projected to reach approximately $4.3 billion in 2015 and$15.7 billion in 2020 on the basis of continuing advances in TFPV manufacturing andimproved cost-competitiveness with c-Si PV production. Asian countries are expected topredominate among many of the TFPV technology and equipment type marketcategories, particularly China, Taiwan, and several Southeast Asian countries likeMalaysia and Vietnam. Equipment markets already exist and are projected as well inJapan, India, and Korea.
