Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets today announced the addition of two new photovoltaics reports to its publication schedule.

Glen Allen, VA: The two reports titled, “Dye Sensitized Cells: Materials, Applications and Opportunities – 2011” and “OPV: Materials, Applications and Opportunities – 2011” will be released in April and continue the firm’s coverage of the photovoltaics business since 2006. Details of the reports are available on the firm’s website at The firm is offering the reports at pre-publication pricing through the second report’s release date.


About the Reports:

OPV: Materials, Applications and Opportunities – 2011

Money continues to be invested in the OPV space and new companies have appeared in the past year or so. This is despite the fact that conversion efficiencies remain well below those of every other PV technology and OPV costs have failed to meet the expectations of a few years back.

In this brand new report from NanoMarkets the firm provides a comprehensive examination of the marketplace, technologies, manufacturing approaches and the overall current state of the OPV business. Starting with a look back over the past year, we examine both key materials suppliers and panel manufacturers and the applications for their products. We consider how revenues will be profitably generated by this interesting technology over the near and longer term. The report contains detailed forecasts broken out by materials, technologies and markets by volumes and dollars.

Dye Sensitized Cells: Materials, Applications and Opportunities – 2011

Dye sensitized cells (DSC) were once little more than a curiosity, positioned at the edge of the organic photovoltaics space. However, recent developments suggest that this approach to photovoltaics is rapidly commercializing; offering a potential low-cost technology solution for BIPV and mobile PV applications. Much of the new bullishness surrounding DSC has been enabled by recent materials-related innovations. These innovations new transparent electrolytes, replacing platinum electrodes with less costly electrodes using carbon and cobalt, and re-thinking the DSC cell architecture.

More companies are also into the DSC and as a result, NanoMarkets believes the time has come for this industry analysis report that focuses exclusively on the DSC space. In addition to analyzing the opportunities for this technology in the BIPV and mobile PV space, this report appraises the strategies of the main firms active in this space. As with all NanoMarkets reports, it also provides an eight-year forecast for the DSC sector by volume and value of shipments.
