This makes them a preferred choice in applications demanding flexibility and design over efficiency. Furthermore, tax benefits and subsidies provided by various governments in favor of renewable power generation augments the growth of the market for organic solar cells. On the other hand, the reduced lifespan and decreased efficiency of organic solar cells are the two prime factors restraining the growth of the market for organic solar cells.

On the basis of application, the organic solar cell market is segmented into mobile applications, including vehicles and portable devices, building integrated photovoltaic, defense or military-based applications, and conventional solar applications. At present, organic solar cells are majorly used in building integrated photovoltaic applications. The portable devices in mobile applications include laptops, tablets and mobiles, and solar bags, among others. In defense applications, organic solar cells are utilized as skins on military equipment. They are also used in vehicles for powering smaller electrical systems, such as stereos, within vehicles.

AOn the basis of chemical manufacturing companies, the organic solar cell market is segmented into two types of companies. The big chemical manufacturing companies are the first type and includes BASF SE and Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd. These companies utilize their expertise in chemical manufacturing for making the organic polymer utilized in the manufacturing of organic solar cells. The second type of companies are the small manufacturing companies, including Solarmer Energy, Inc. and Heliatek GmbH. These companies rely on other companies and research laboratories for supplying raw materials.
