Palm Beach, FL – February 23, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Recent reports all seem to project that the solar industry will continue growing substantially in the next several years. One report from Market Data Forecast said that: “With governments around the world escalating their investments and initiatives in the solar energy sector, the future of the worldwide CdTe thin film solar market looks quite bright. Also, the escalating adoption of cadmium telluride in the electro-optic modulator, due to the high electro-optic coefficient, is another factor that is predicted to further support the expansion of the target market during the outlook period. In addition, escalated construction and rebuilding activities around the world and growing call for piezoelectric semiconductors and light-emitting diodes are among other factors that are predicted to further support market expansion to some extent. Additionally, the rising call from various end-use industries, due to the wide applicability of cadmium telluride in solar photovoltaic, optical lenses and windows, electro-optical modulator, and nuclear spectroscopy is another factor supposed to drive market expansion over the envisioned period (2026).” In 2020, the residential applications of the cadmium telluride photovoltaic market had the largest share worldwide and is predicted to dominate the market in the future. The commercial applications segment is predicted to grow rapidly in the coming years.” Active Companies in the markets today include First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL) (OTCPK: GODYF), Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE: FCX), Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM) (TSX: NGT), Rio Tinto Group (NYSE: RIO), Glencore plc (OTCPK: GLNCY).
The Market Data Forecast report continued: “Europe became the dominant market for cadmium telluride photovoltaic. The growing call for thin film solar cells has driven the call for CdTe in the region. However, market expansion in Europe is limited due to the recent economic slowdown in the region. In addition to Europe, the call for thin film solar panels is high in North America, providing lucrative opportunities for the CdTe market.”
