Photovoltaics is the most encouraging field among renewable energy. Photovoltaics is among the best way for the conversion of sunlight into electricity. Building integrated photovoltaics system is helpful in saving a huge amount of electricity and material, at the same time it helps in bringing down the use of fossil fuels and the subsequent harmful releases. Building integrated photovoltaics are used in off-grid, and utility grids, and stand-alone systems. Grid-tied systems offer advantages including maximum efficiency, unlimited capacity, and free storage system.

Increasing usage of conventional photovoltaics materials in window panes, building facade, curtain walls, and spandrels cladding, and rising need for reducing the costs on electricity are propelling the demand for building integrated photovoltaics. Technological advancements including artificial intelligence, voice control, the intelligent assistant have become a feasible control center for many connected and smart homes are among the other factors which help to drive the growth of the target market. However, factors such as high initial investment, Lack of knowledge and expertise to estimate the same, and technology is depended on the different building measurements and codes are the factors that are hampering adoption of these building integrated photovoltaics market.

Mainly three types of building integrated photovoltaics are available in the market currently, including single crystal silicon, polycrystalline silicon, and thin film.  Demand for crystal silicon is high as compared to the other two types as they are usually opaque in nature, in dark shades of gray or black, with an optional anti insightful coating over the protective glass and are connected with solar modules.

The building integrated photovoltaics is used in various applications including residential and commercial. Demand for building integrated photovoltaics is increasing in commercial applications, due to the increasing focus for reducing power consumption across industrial buildings and corporate offices.
