Solar Breakthrough to Steal Market Share

Lux Research Report Finds That Thin-Film (Amorphous Silicon, Cadmium Telluride, and CIGS) to Rake in $19.7 Billion

Combined in 2012, Accounting for 28% of the Solar Market

New York–After years of heady growth in the PV market led largely by crystalline silicon, thin-film technology has reached a critical mass and is poised to start taking significant market share from incumbent technology. Thin-film silicon technologies from turn-key vendors will be ramping up in large scale during the second half of 2008, while cadmium telluride (CdTe) module producers such as First Solar
