DUBLIN — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 17, 2012 — Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dvl56m/building_integrate) has announced the addition of the "Building Integrated Photovoltaics Roofing Markets - 2012" report to their offering.
BIPV offers both the PV industry and the building products industry a way out of their current economic plights. For PV firms, BIPV provides a product strategy geared to adding value to products. For the building products industry, BIPV represents a new line of products that will enable construction firms to add saleable features to buildings of all kinds.
While all this is true of all BIPV products, there is a natural migration path from today's rooftop PV panels to BIPV roofing. With this in mind, NanoMarkets is publishing this report, which identifies and quantifies the market opportunities for BIPV roofing.
The report discusses a roadmap for BIPV roofing in which business revenues are generated initially by simple overlay products and then by conventional rigid and flexible BIPV roofing products and finally from fully integrated products. The report also shows how the performance of BIPV roofing is expected to evolve with a special focus on lifetime requirements and the materials that will be used both for substrates and absorber layers.
This report also includes extensive forecasts of the BIPV roofing market in terms of wattage, area covered and revenues generated. Breakouts are provided by type of building, type of BIPV roofing and key materials used. In addition, we project the nations and regions that will generate the most revenues for BIPV roofing and the breakouts of the BIPV roofing market by retrofit and new construction. As usual with NanoMarkets reports, this report also includes a detailed assessment of the strategies of the leading firms currently supplying BIPV roofing products.
