Building Applied Photovoltaics (BAPV) Market Is Expected To Reach 716.7 MW (annual installations) Globally By 2020: Transparency Market Research

Albany - NY, Oct. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The key product segments analyzed in this study include rooftop and facades. In terms of volume, rooftop was the largest BAPV segment, accounting for around 54% market share in 2013. The facades segment is witnessing significant demand owing to growing applications in commercial and industrial sectors. Therefore, it is expected to be one of the fastest growing product segments in the next two to four years. BAPV modules are externally retrofitted on building structures; therefore, presence of old building structures is anticipated to offer new opportunities for BAPV products. This in turn is bolstering the overall market growth. Europe and North America have initiated practicing Feed-in Tariff (FIT) schemes, which helps in receiving guaranteed inflation-linked tax-free income. This scheme allows end users to generate electricity through BAPV systems and supply surplus electricity generated to the conventional power grid. The end users are paid in return for supplying surplus electricity to the conventional power grid as per regional policies. Rising energy prices along with supportive incentive schemes by several governments are likely to drive market growth over the next few years.
