Global silicone gel market: Increasing demand from the renewable energy market
Silicone gel is extensively used as an encapsulant for solar photovoltaic modules as it is lightweight and stable. Encapsulation helps in increasing the lifespan of PV modules, and silicone gel protect the PV cells from heat, moisture, and mechanical damage. These gels offer good optical contact between the outer protective coating and PV cell surfaces.
In 2016, the global levelized cost of electricity of the solar photovoltaic generation reduced at a rate of more than 200% when compared to 2009 owing to the improvement in technologies and innovations. In countries such as the US, China, India, and Germany, the increasing investments in solar energy are likely to fuel the demand for silicone gels during the forecast period, says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.
