Asia-Pacific dominated the global market in 2020, and is projected to remain the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. This is attributed to numerous factors such as a large consumer base and industrialization & urbanization.

Solar encapsulation refers to the process of enclosing solar photovoltaic (PV) cells within protective materials to enhance their durability, performance, and longevity.

The development of PV storage systems is essential to increase the ability of PV systems to replace the existing conventional sources. With rise in demand for PV installations, the adoption of storage grid is projected to increase, which fuels the demand for solar encapsulation and may act as the major driving factor for the market.

According to technology, it is fragmented into polycrystalline silicon solar, cadmium telluride, copper indium gallium selenide, and amorphous silicon. As per the application, it is classified into construction, electronics, automotive, and others.

Encapsulation on solar photovoltaic (PV) modules includes insulation and protection, which alters the device performance as a function of wavelength of incoming light.

The materials used for solar encapsulation should have excellent optical transparency, adhesion properties, weather resistance, and thermal stability. The most common materials include ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) and polyvinyl butyral (PVB) for the encapsulant layer, and glass or polymer backsheets for the top and bottom layers.

Solar encapsulation plays a vital role in protecting and enhancing the performance of solar PV modules, contributing to the widespread adoption of solar energy as a clean and sustainable power source.

The encapsulation materials protect the solar cells from environmental factors such as moisture, dust, temperature variations, mechanical stresses, and UV radiation, which can degrade their efficiency over time. Solar encapsulation is a crucial component of solar module manufacturing and is typically achieved through the lamination process.

In addition, PV technology has evolved as the major renewable power resource in the worldwide green energy sector to meet the future challenge of energy needs.

Effective solar encapsulation enhances the durability and reliability of solar modules, ensuring long-term performance and minimal degradation over their operational lifespan. High-quality encapsulation materials and proper lamination processes are essential to withstand harsh environmental conditions and maintain optimal performance over time.
