Glen Allen, VA - February 15, 2011 -- Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets
has added a new report to its portfolio titled “CIGS Photovoltaics Market
Opportunities 2011.”The report is scheduled to release the week of
February 28, 2011 and continues the firm’s coverage of thin-film
photovoltaic markets that dates back to early 2006. Additional details
about the report are available at www.nanomarkets.net.

The report is available on the NanoMarkets website at prepublication
rates through February 28, 2011.

About the Report:
In recent years, CIGS has become a collection of contradictions. While
it has achieved the highest conversion efficiency among the thin-films,
its progress toward high volumes has been sluggish. And while the volume
growth of leading companies has been well behind the level of
expectations that CdTe has set, dozens of small companies continue to
enter the CIGS market, especially in China and Taiwan. Finally, while
flexible CIGS PV—especially in the form of BIPV—is widely considered the
path for success, there are still concerns about the durability of such
flexible products given CIGS’ sensitivity to moisture.

In this report NanoMarkets addresses the questions of what will it take
for the large manufacturers of CIGS PV to finally approach the Gigawatt
range in volume, what do the small players stand to gain by entering this
crowded field, what is the value proposition of CIGS that makes it so
attractive, will CIGS ever make real money, and will investors be
available to build the necessary capacity?

This report also analyzes the money-making opportunities for CIGS PV
examined from the perspectives of CIGS’ strengths (high performance and
flexibility) and its weaknesses (sensitivity to moisture and difficult
manufacturing processes). It takes an honest look at the processes and
strategies of the various firms making CIGS and at the markets in which
CIGS has unique advantages.

This report also includes NanoMarkets’ eight-year forecasts of the market
for CIGS PV broken down by type of application—BIPV, flexible devices,
etc.—and by the manufacturing technology used, including deposition
technology and flexible vs. rigid manufacturing.
