Dublin, Nov. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wxp93c/building) has announced the addition of the "Building Integrated Photovoltaics Markets - 2012" report to their offering.

Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) represents the merging of the building materials and solar panel business, with the "integration" part of the equation implying everything from novel forms of attachment to a building through to full-scale monolithic integration of PV layers into a tile or window.

Experts have been covering the BIPV market now for more than six years and has published numerous industry analysis reports in this space. We believe that BIPV will prove to be a pathway to creating far larger addressable markets for PV in the future. The BIPV concept will also enable the solar panel industry to create products with higher value added and wider profit margins than the now highly commoditized conventional panels.

In this eight-year market forecast report, experts bring together all of our industry analysis to paint a complete quantitative picture of where the BIPV industry is today and where it is headed in the next eight years. The report covers the BIPV roof, BIPV wall and BIPV glass categories and all of the products that make them up; twelve different BIPV products. Projections are also provided for building integrated photovoltaics products with breakouts by the type of building into which they are sold, the region of the world into which they are sold, and the types of materials that they use.
