Description

Global Solar Silicon Wafer Market: Overview

A solar wafer works as a substratum for microeconomic devices and is a slim portion of crystalline silicon (semiconductor). To manufacture solar cells, it is used to fabricate integrated circuits in photovoltaics. To convert sunlight energy straight into electrical energy, such wafers are very essential to photovoltaic production as well as to the power generation system of PV. For solar system application, the wafer is made into a circular disk with high purity silicon material.

Global Solar Silicon Wafer Market: Growth Factors

The rise in demand for energy, increase in preference towards clean energy, and rural electrification are some of the prime factors that are fueling the growth of the global solar silicon wafer market. By far, silicon is the most commonly used semiconductor material that is been used in solar cells. And after oxygen is the second most available material on the Earth. Solar silicon wafers offer a combination of long lifetime, high efficiency, and low cost. Currently, amorphous silicon, polycrystalline silicon, and monocrystalline silicon are some of the materials that are been used for photovoltaic solar cells. In addition to this titanium dioxide is been gradually replaced by silicon nitride as an anti-reflection coating due to its excellent surface passivation qualities. It helps to prevent carrier recombination at the surface of the solar cells. Also, the strict requirements for quality control and cleanliness of semiconductor fabrication are much more tranquil for solar cells. Thus, most of the commercial large-scale solar cell factories make printed silicon solar cells. All these factors are spurring the growth of the global market. Moreover, the rise in solar installations in the commercial, as well as residential sector and the rapidly expanding automobile industry with the wide application of silicon wafers in electric vehicles are also some of the factors that are augmenting the growth of the market. Furthermore, technological advancements and the rapid emphasis on the use of natural energy sources which demand solar silicon wafers are expected to rise and lead to several opportunities for the growth of the global solar silicon wafer market over the forecast period. However, as compared to the thin-film photovoltaic panels, the silicon wafer panels require high costs for their manufacturing and installation which may hinder the growth of the global solar silicon wafer market.

As the uncertainty surrounding the impact of the outbreak of the Covid-19 on the semiconductor industry persists, a drop in the sales of solar silicon wafers is been witnessed. This is due to the shift in supply & demand, pricing trends, and supplier dynamics caused due to the strict rules of complete lockdown and restrictions on movement imposed by the government of several countries across the world. In addition to this, the shutdown of manufacturing units of the industries and limitation on personnel movement also affected the growth of the global solar silicon wafer market during the pandemic.

Global Solar Silicon Wafer Market: Segmentation

The global solar silicon wafer market is classified based on type, application, end-user, and region. Based on the type, the global solar silicon wafer market is split into the polycrystalline wafer and monocrystalline wafer. Among these, the polycrystalline segment is expected to hold the maximum share in the market as it produces very less amount of waste. Based on the application, the global market is categorized into solar battery, solar racking system, solar cell, inverter, and PV modules. Among these, the PV module is anticipated to dominate the market owing to the growing demand for large-size wafers. The end-user segment is divided into commercial, residential, utilities, and industry. The utility sector is estimated to account for the largest share owing to the government's large-scale installations.
