The current downturn of BIPV sector has an enormous potential to rebound and expand into the PV sector for construction market in the foreseeable future. Solar technology has already gained a significant market due to lack of natural resources in the Korean domestic market. Given the technical infrastructure of state-of-the-art fusion technology, the competitiveness of software-driven BIPV market in the world can be ver attractive and have the potential to develop as a key national technology. To do this, from the viewpoint of complexity, technical R&D, national political aspect, social aspect, economic aspect and institutional support systems need to be parallelly formulated. A dedicated BIPV sector has not yet been established, especially policy and institutional framework have very crucial impact on the establishment of BIPV sector.
