 Thin-film, DSC and organic PV are notoriously vulnerable to oxygen and water vapor; much more so than conventional crystalline silicon PV.  NanoMarkets believes that as these newer forms of solar panel technology become ever more pervasive, it is creating a growing opportunity to supply cost-effective encapsulation technology into the PV space.  
   
 Although, in the not-too-distant past, several firms have tried to exploit similar opportunities without success, NanoMarkets now believes that the time is right for PV encapsulation to lead to significant revenue generation for well-prepared companies and this report is designed to assist a variety of firms in preparing for the PV encapsulation opportunity.
