Top industry experts set to gather at Thin Film Summit in Berlin

PV Insider announce that ‘Busting the Myths’ will be the main focal point of the 4th Annual Thin Film Solar Summit Europe (5-6th March 2012, Berlin), helping to steer the thin film industry out of confusion and fear towards reality and promise.

2011 proved to be a turbulent year for the European thin film industry, with big names going bust, consolidation of the market, and ever increasing competition from c-Si and Asia. However, it is not all doom and gloom, as the global thin film market is set to grow at a CAGR of 32.4% over the period 2010–2014. Recent figures suggest that it will grow to make $44 billion worldwide by 2017. From its 2010 levels of $2.9 billion, this signifies a huge growth rate for the technology that will be driven by the dynamism of the thin film strands: cadmium-telluride (CdTe), copper indium gallium (di)selenide (CIGS) and amorphous silicon (a-Si). Thin film applications also demonstrate a unique potential for Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) – an important market segment which can now develop professionally with adapted thin film products.
