Global Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market is valued at approximately USD 4.42 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 30.80% over the forecast period 2022-2029. Solar photovoltaic glass is a type of glass that is designed to generate electricity from sunlight. It is also known as solar glass or PV glass (photovoltaic glass). The solar photovoltaic glass contains photovoltaic cells that convert solar energy into electrical energy. The photovoltaic cells are sandwiched between two layers of glass, with a conductive coating on one side. When sunlight falls on the glass, the photovoltaic cells absorb the energy and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. The conductive coating allows the electricity to be collected and transported away from the glass. Solar photovoltaic glass is often used in building facades, windows, and skylights to generate electricity and reduce energy consumption. It can also be used in solar panels and other solar applications. The key factor driving the market growth is the rising demand for solar photovoltaic (PV) glass among residential applications, and supportive government regulations and initiative for the usage of photovoltaic technology is anticipated to create a lucrative demand for the solar photovoltaic glass market during the forecast period.
However, supportive government initiatives for the development of solar energy are anticipated to influence market growth. For instance, in 2022, the US Department of Energy introduced a 26% tax credit program for homeowners who had solar PV systems installed within the previous two years. The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) was also extended by the government, increasing it to 30% for projects completed within the next ten years. Similarly, China raised its budget for renewable energy rebates to USD 840 million for 2021, with about 55% of that amount going to the solar power sector. On the other hand, India's government has projected significant increases in solar power generation capacity, maximizing production from the current 49.6 GW in 2021 to approximately 300 GW by 2030. Similar efforts are being made by almost all national governments, and it is anticipated that this will increase demand for solar PV modules and, in turn, solar PV glass. Additionally, the growing demand for renewable energy is anticipated to create a lucrative opportunity for the market during the forecast period. However, the high cost of Solar Photovoltaic Glass stifles market growth throughout the forecast period of 2022-2029.
The key regions considered for the Global Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market study includes Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Rest of the World. North America is the dominating region across the world in terms of market share, owing to the presence of key market players and growing demand in the residential sector. Whereas, Asia Pacific is also anticipated to exhibit the highest growth rate over the forecast period, owing to factors such as supportive govt. initiative and rising investment in the renewal energy sector in the region would create lucrative growth prospects for the Solar Photovoltaic Glass market across the Asia Pacific region.

Recent Developments in the Market:
In Dec. 2022, DAS Solar launched the black-thru series, an all-black N-type bifacial dual-glass module. The product is built on a 54-cell M10 design and has a maximum power output of 430W and a maximum module efficiency of 22.0%. The module has an attractive all-black appearance due to new coating technology, a black busbar overlaid with black silicon, and colourless coated glass that reduces light reflection and improves power generation.
