The solar energy market is growing dramatically. This trend is expected to continue for the foreseable future.

Cell production forecast by cell technology

TOPCon and HJT are expected to dominate the PV solar cell market.
Lumet is applicable to all PV solar technologies, including PERC, TOPCon and HJT.
The solar industry adopts value-adding disruptive technologies extremely rapidly

Annual PV module production cost

The PV solar market is extremely price-sensitive.
Cost efficiency is key. Cost decreases have plateaued as production efficiencies topped out.

The focus of the solar industry today is
leveraging advanced technologies in order to:

1. Increase PV module efficiency
Increase the watts generated per solar cell/module
  • Adopting advanced cell techologies such as TOPCon and HJT
2. Reduce Costs
Reduce material consumption in production
  • Reducing wafer thickness to save polysilicon
  • Lowering silver consumption in cell production

PV Solar Cost per Watt

The segment of the PV solar value chain that has the greatest potential for increasing performance and lowering cost is solar cell production. The single largest cost of solar cell production is metallization.
To address the PV solar market's need for higher efficiency and lower cost, Lumet has developed a breakthrough metallization technology...
