A new study on Low Iron Solar Glass Market Shares and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2011-2017. The 2011 study has 325 pages, 146 tables and figures.
According the Susan Eustis, principal author of the study, "factors driving this market represent concerns about energy security, energy prices, climate change and cost of carbon. Increased demand for electricity is a significant market trend. There is a need for replacing existing electricity generating capacity."
Low iron solar glass technology gives solar panel and solar concentrator vendors the ability to build more efficient systems. Improved cost structures of the solar industry depend in part on improved efficiencies in low iron glass manufacturing.
PV low iron glass represents 3% of the world glass production.
Markets for low iron glass at $1.5 billion in 2010 are expected to reach
$3.8 billion by 2017. Growth is expected to achieve marked improvements
in these ratios with low iron glass coming in at 15% of total glass
production in 2020, i.e. the same level as automotive glass.

Solar key market growth factors driving demand include above all government subsidies. Although there is local variation, in the aggregate, subsidies are expected to continue and increase. There is not a more useful way for a government to spend its tax dollars than to stimulate growth of relatively inexpensive local sources of energy.
Efforts to drive full employment depend on a shift of defense budgets to renewable energy spending. Initially, renewable energy spending will come through the defense budgets worldwide, but as governments realize that the auto industry drives economies, they will begin to fund renewable solar energy used to create electricity for electric vehicles.
The industry depends on achieving economies of scale to lower costs of manufacture. Solutions to reach grid parity are needed in order for solar to become a long-term viable business. Among the most important issues are coating technology and novel structures. In the field of machining and finishing of thin glass with strengths of 0.95 mm, glass is used for concentrating solar thermal power plants (CSP). Lead-and copper-free protection and coating systems are used for solar energy applications.
For parabolic-reflector power stations thinner glass units are
interesting. The thinner the glass is, the higher the degree of
reflection. Mirror components, bending and the application of optical
and functional layers rank among the core competencies of glass makers.
Glass makers are extending their product sets and improving technology
to cover the spectrum of flat solar glass processing.
