  • 1. Organic and Dye-Sensitized Cell Photovoltaics: Materials, Applications andOpportunities 2010Published By: NanoMarkets LCPublished:May 2011Product Code: NanoMarkets LC1030Report SummaryOrganic and Dye-Sensitized Cell Photovoltaics: Materials, Applications and Opportunities2010 – It has always been apparent that organic photovoltaics (OPV) would not easilymatch the conversion efficiencies of the inorganic thin-film PV technologies or conventionalsilicon PV. Nonetheless, OPV has been expected to easily compete with its rivals on cost.Unfortunately, for OPV, this assumption is now being challenged. The cost of OPV has notdeclined as quickly as many had hoped, while competitive technologies have seen morerapid than anticipated reductions in cost. It is no longer a foregone conclusion that OPV willbe the cheapest PV technology.Buy Now: Organic and Dye-Sensitized marketBrowse All: Market Research ReportsDoes this mean that the end of the road is near for OPV? We don’t believe so. In this newreport we analyzes the OPV industry and show which applications will preserve the OPVmarket as a growth business. OPV has some unique features that distinguish it from theinorganic TFPVs; features like extreme flexibility and ease of manufacturing that can allow itto enter some markets where the other PV technologies cannot.In this report, we discusses how and where these distinguishing features can be turned inopportunities. We also examine where hybrid organic/inorganic PV, notably dye sensitizedcells (DSCs), is making its mark; in building integrated PV and other areas.This report provides the latest analysis and forecasts of the opportunities available in OPVand DSC markets. The focus for growth in the OPV/DSC business now look very differentthan predicted even a year ago. So this report is essential reading for any firm seeking togenerate new business revenues in this industry.Table Of ContentsE.1 Introduction: OPV and DSC in a Competitive MarketplaceE.2 What’s Changed Since Last YearE.3 Capitalizing on Unique Features of OPV and DSCE.4 Where OPV and DSC Will FailE.5 Opportunities for Technology ImprovementE.6 Opportunities for Filling Market NichesE.7 Firms to WatchE.8 Summary of Eight-Year ForecastsChapter One: Introduction1.1 Background to this Report 1.1.1 Cost Considerations
