Market Report Description

The Global Thermophotovoltaics Market size is expected to reach $247.7 million by 2030, rising at a market growth of 12.2% CAGR during the forecast period.

Concentrated solar power (CSP) technologies are used to provide direct sunlight onto a receiver, such as solar power towers, parabolic troughs, or dish concentrators. The two primary categories of solar TPVs on the market are solar TPVs and hybrid TPVs. Hence, the solar segment will register more than 50% share in the market by 2030. High-temperature heat, typically between 1,000 and 2,500 degrees Celsius, is produced in TPV systems using concentrated solar radiation. A thermal emitter is then the target of this focused heat, which releases heat in the form of photons. This heat radiation is directed toward photovoltaic cells that are designed to produce electricity at particular wavelengths. Some of the factors impacting the market are rising demand for electricity worldwide, growing government support for thin-film solar cells, and the high cost of manufacturing thermophotovoltaics.

The rate of industrialization and urbanization has quickened recently, increasing the need for power. The demand for energy will rise globally in 2023, predicts the International Energy Agency's Energy Market Report 2023. Demand will rise by 2,500 terawatt hours (TWh) by 2025, with most of the growth occurring in Asia. The entire demand would rise by 9%, reaching 29,281TWh. By 2025, China's share of global electricity demand will increase from 5% in 1990 to 25% in 2015. Due to strong expansion in surrounding Asia Pacific nations, the region will also supply more than half of the world's electrical consumption. Furthermore, to provide grid connections for photovoltaic projects that are convenient, governments in various locations are constantly developing new laws. Among the countries promoting solar energy use aggressively are China, Canada, France, and the US. For instance, China's 14th Five-Year Plan, which was just released, sets a high objective for producing electricity from renewable sources by 2025. The latest statistics provided by the government show that at the end of March, installed solar capacity had grown 33.7 percent annually to more than 430 million kilowatts. The market is growing as a result of grid construction and increasing electricity demand, and rising initiatives and the installation of solar cells.

However, finding cheaper commercially available TPV cells is one of the main obstacles to TPV application. A costly growth process, like molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), is used to create some of the TPV structures. Additionally, front and rear surface field layers are necessary for the majority of TPV cells to maximize cell performance. These layers improve the assortment of lengthy and concise photogenerated carriers. Therefore, the high manufacturing cost of TPV may hamper the growth of the market throughout the forecast period.

Application Outlook

On the basis of application, the market is classified into solar, nuclear, thermal power plant, military, off-grid generator, portable electronics, and others. The off-grid generator segment witnessed a promising growth rate in the market in 2022. A fascinating and promising technology, thermophotovoltaics (TPV), can have a number of advantages in off-grid generation systems. Fossil fuels, waste heat from industrial operations, biomass, solar energy, and other sources of heat can all be used in TPV systems. It is suited for a variety of off-grid situations where various heat sources might be accessible because of their adaptability.
