Building-integrated Photovoltaics Market Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 - 2026
Building-integrated Photovoltaics Market - Overview
The world is currently facing challenges arising out of shortage of conventional fossil fuels and degradation of the environment. In order to overcome these issues, renewable energy resources are being tapped increasingly. The need to produce energy from renewable resources has risen. BIPV is a type of renewable energy resource. Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPVs) is the integration of photovoltaics (PV) into the building envelope. It is gaining more attention, as it can substitute traditional construction materials. Currently, in the European Union (EU), buildings are responsible for 36% of CO2 emissions, but buildings can fulfill 32% of the EU’s energy demand if they use building integrated photovoltaics (BIPVs).
The U.S., Japan, and Germany are major countries in terms of BIPV installations. BIPVs are receiving high attention in the U.S. State of California, as the installation of solar panels on new buildings is mandatory in California. According to the California Energy Commission (CEC), nearly 75,000 new homes are expected to be built statewide by 2020. This is expected to drive the BIPV market in the U.S. during the forecast period.

Europe is a leading region of the global building-integrated photovoltaics market. The region constitutes more than 45% share of the global market. The market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at the maximum pace during the forecast period.
Recently, concerns related to fossil fuels have increased. This presents opportunities for service providers operating in the global building-integrated photovoltaics market.
The U.S. BIPV market is mostly concentrated in California, followed by New Jersey. In Canada, the market for BIPV in Ontario is expected to expand at a significant pace in the near future.
California was among the first states in the U.S. to develop a Green Building Standards code known as ‘CALGreen.’ The code is expected to mandate that the new buildings in the state be more efficient in terms of energy and environment. This is projected to help the International Code Council develop a new International Green Construction Code (IGCC) for commercial buildings.
According to SolarPower Europe, countries in Europe have installed around 9 GW of solar power systems in 2017, which is a 30% increase over the 7 GW added in 2016
