Saudi Arabia PV cells market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 12% during the forecast period. A Photovoltaic (PV) cell or a solar cell is a device which converts light energy into electricity. There are several different types of PV cells which all use semiconductors to interact with incoming photons from the Sun in order to generate an electric current. It works on the principal of photovoltaic effect. PV cells can also be used as photodetectors.

Increasing electricity demand and rising penetration of renewable energy sources are the key factors driving the Saudi Arabia PV cells market. Additionally, technological advancements related to reducing manufacturing cost and improving performance efficiency are further expected to propel the market. Further, supportive government initiatives and policies to support the use of solar systems are expected to open new avenues for the industry over the forecast period.

The Saudi Arabia PV cells market is segmented based on type, product type, end use, region and company. Based on type, the market can be bifurcated into organic and inorganic. The organic solar cells are expected to dominate the market since they are available at low costs and are more efficient than the inorganic counterparts. Based on product type, the market can be fragmented into thin film, monocrystalline and poly crystalline. The thin film solar cells dominate the market owing to their growing use for commercial and residential applications. Additionally, these cells produce low-cost electricity by absorbing sunlight at nearly the ideal wavelength. Furthermore, flexibility and transparency associated with these cells are further expected to drive their demand during the forecast period. Based on end use, the market can be categorized into residential, commercial and utility scale. The residential segment holds significant market share on account of rising population in line with positive consumer outlook towards deployment of solar technology. Additionally, growing lifestyle coupled with rising awareness about climate change across consumers positively drives the market.
