"Solar Tracker Market Size By Product (Dual Axis, Single Axis), By Technology (CPV, Solar PV, CSP), By Application (Utility, Non-utility), Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook (U.S., Canada, Germany, Spain, China, India, Japan, Brazil), Application Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2016 - 2023"
Solar tracker market size was calculated at 8.8 GW in 2015, as per the latest research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. Growth in energy conservation techniques coupled with preference for renewable power generation sources may boost industry demand.
Global solar tracker market size is set to register USD 7.54 billion by 2023. Rising concerns pertaining to green house gas & CO2 emissions accompanied by favorable government policies to install PV cells as a medium for sustainable energy generation are expected key industry trend to positively influence demand.
Utility solar tracker market size was dominant with total installation of over 7.5 GW in 2015 and is estimated to grow at above 16.5% CAGR up to 2023. Single axis tracking systems are widely preferred in utility applications and are mostly concentrated in the U.S., Germany and Spain.
Single axis solar tracker demand was the highest was worth close to USD 1.7 billion revenue in 2015. Single axis trackers are less expensive as compared to dual axis trackers and hence are widely employed in residential and commercial sector.
Photovoltaic (PV) solar tracker accounted for more than 65% of the demand in 2015 and is projected to witness highest gains up to 2023. The PV technology trackers do not require any additional lenses, mirrors or sterling energy to generate electricity, thereby making them suitable for use in non-utility applications.
Government incentives to support renewable energy have driven demand in residential and commercial sector. Feed in Tariff (FIT) scheme initiated in April 2010 under which electricity supplier, mainly in residential constructions, will give payments for each kW generated which is known as generation-tariff. However, High initial investment cost and installation charges may restrain the market growth.
