The photovoltaic (PV) industry is operating within two technology groups: those based on single crystal materials and those based on thin films. The former is substantially mature, while the latter relatively new and developing rapidly. Industry's interests are driven by market response in a range of applications which are progressively broadening. Lower cost and higher performance are the keys to industrial development. These qualities are emerging in the thin film technology spectrum.
