Glen Allen, VA: Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets today has announced the addition of a new report on building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) to its publication schedule titled “BIPV Roofing Markets - 2012” (Nano-543) that will be released the week of May 28th.  The report is available at pre-publication rates through May 29th.  For additional information about the report interested persons can visit the NanoMarkets website at
The firm has also announced that it will be releasing a report on the BIP encapsulation market in May and has also released a related report on BIPV glass market in February of this year.  Information about these reports is also available on the NanoMarkets website at ;
About the Report:
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.
