GLEN ALLEN, Va., Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Industry Analyst firm NanoMarkets today announced that it will publish a new report in September of this year titled, “BIPV Wall Markets – 2012.” In this report, NanoMarkets identifies the business opportunities that will be generated over the coming decade from embedding photovoltaic capabilities into walling products of various kinds. The report follows previous releases from NanoMarkets related to building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) glass, roofing and substrates and encapsulation.

More about the report:
This report forecasts the new revenues that will be generated from wall-attached PV, roofing BIPV products used on walls, dedicated BIPV siding products and BIPV curtain walls. It also examines the commercial potential of more futuristic products such as solar paints and panels that combine PV and lighting.
NanoMarkets believes that the BIPV walling market is being generated by the growth in the number of buildings where energy requirements cannot be met by rooftop solar panels alone. This is often the case with multistory buildings that have relatively small roof spaces that are clogged up with HVAC and water system equipment. In addition, zero-energy buildings have energy generation needs that rooftop panels are not sufficient to meet.
This report explains where the initial revenues for BIPV walling will be generated and how the supply chains will evolve to meet the needs of this new sector. In addition, the report discusses which types of PV technology are best suited for walling products and how the panel makers can best take advantage of the BIPV walling market. The report also includes granular eight-year forecasts of the BIPV wall market with breakouts by volume (MW) and value ($ millions), as well analysis of the strategies of major firms active in this market.
NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging market opportunities in energy, electronics and other markets created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts of this kind and has been covering the photovoltaics sector for more than six years.
