Polymer Solar Cells Market Size Analysis

According to a recent survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, the Global Polymer Solar Cells Market grew at a CAGR of 14.8% between 2017-2021 and is estimated to be US$ 149.8Mn in 2022. Currently, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 16.7% and is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 701.8Mn by 2032 end.

Due to the high manufacturing costs and intricate production process of polymer solar cells, there has been an increase in the demand for various alternative technologies. Comparing polymer solar cells to crystalline silicon solar PV cells, several benefits are available. Polymer solar PV cells are lightweight, disposable, and simple to make.

They enable tremendous levels of molecular customisation and little environmental impact. Compared to crystalline silicon PV cells, polymer solar cells are used in a lot more applications. Due to the flexibility of polymer solar PV cells, they can be used in windows, walls, flexible electronics, clothing, and other wearables.

Market Dynamic


The market for polymer solar cells is being driven by the expanding solar panel market and solar panels’ lower cost of electricity generation as compared to other energy sources. The need for polymer solar cells is expanding due in part to their increased efficiency and shorter production times compared to other electricity generation technologies. Additionally, the demand for eco-friendly products is growing, supporting the polymer solar cell market.


Contrary to photovoltaics based on inorganic silicon semiconductors, this technology has some drawbacks, such as its degradation in low light and darkness. Compared to their silicon counterparts, polymer solar cells have challenges with stability and efficiency. These elements may slow the market’s expansion for polymer solar cells.
