ISOVOLTAIC extends international business
The Austrian company ISOVOLTAIC has successfully positioned itself as global market leader for backsheets on the basis of its wealth of experience combined with intensive R&D.
Solar energy is one of the most important energy sources of the future. The global photovoltaic market is one of the strongest and is growing steadily. For example in 2010 the PV industry achieved a plus of 86%. And the future also looks bright, which is why the Austrian firm ISOVOLTAIC AG is investing in research, development and production. The company intends to extend its role as the world’s market and technology leader in backsheets for photovoltaic modules.
The innovative company came about from the photovoltaic division of Isovolta Group and has over 25 years’ experience in producing high-quality composite protective sheets for solar cells. Backsheets and other sheet technologies are extremely durable and robust. They provide long-term protection for solar cells against mechanical and chemical influences and the effects of the weather and they reliably ensure that sunlight can be efficiently converted into usable energy.
In 2010 ISOVOLTAIC has managed to win additional market share – particularly in growth markets such as Asia. The Chinese market holds particular significance for this module manufacturer, with annual growth rates of over 70% forecast. In the last financial year 250 employees at 3 sites – 2 in Austria, one in Changzhou, China – generated turnover of more than EUR 200 million.
