Solar tracker market size is forecast to reach USD 7.54 billion by 2023, with growth expectation of 12% CAGR from 2016 to 2023.
India Solar Tracker Market Size, By Product, 2013-2023 (USD Million)
In terms of installed capacity, solar trackers market size was calculated to be 8,800 MW in 2015, with industry expectations of 29,526 MW by 2023. Rising concerns regarding GHG and CO2 emissions is expected to have a positive impact on the global solar tracker industry growth over the forecast period.
Growing demand for energy conservation coupled with transition from traditional to alternative sources is expected to be a key industry growth driver. Increasing electricity cost, owing to supply demand gap is expected to augment solar PV use in commercial and residential establishments, with global PV capacity exceeding 190 GW in 2015.
Favorable government initiatives are expected to have a further positive impact on the industry. North America and Europe are expected to witness significant solar tracker market size gains on account of political and legal support in the U.S., Germany, and the UK. In addition, a declining solar tracker market price trend should provide industry participants with broader product penetration, especially for cost sensitive applications.
Solar PV technology has been one of the fastest growing renewable energy sources over the last five years. These systems are employed in residential, commercial, and utility applications on account of various factors including decreasing cost and high efficiency.
Increasing government focus on renewable energy has resulted in the development of PV cells as a sustainable and continuous source of energy generation. Rising capacity expansion across regions has resulted in levelized cost of electricity (LCOE), making solar PV competitive with other conventional forms of energy. Europe and Asia Pacific together accounted for over 84% of PV capacity and represent critical regional markets for solar trackers.
Traditionally, single axis trackers have dominated the industry, with just over 64% installed capacity share in 2015. Competitive price and increasing usage, particularly for residential and commercial avenues is likely to drive demand for these products, although they do lose out in terms of accuracy and efficiency. Use of these products maximizes potential output, but also comes with higher CAPEX and OPEX considerations.
Dual axis solar tracker market size is forecast to USD 3.8 billion by 2023, with estimated gains at 13.7% CAGR. Dual axis products have modules that are that are oriented parallel to the secondary axis of rotation. These allow maximum absorption of the sun rays on account of their ability to follow the sun both horizontally and vertically.
Large land requirements and highly sophisticated technology hike coupled with initial development costs and requirement to maintain motors and control systems is likely to raise operating expenditure for these products.
With respect to technology, PV solar tracker market size was estimated at 5,946.2 MW in 2015. High PV cell compatibility with standard photovoltaic module technologies owing to simple design has been a key factor for demand evolution.
CPV solar tracker technology should gain significant ground over the forecast period, with expectations of over 20% CAGR from 2016 to 2023. CPV system produces low cost solar power owing to low manufacturing cost and fewer raw material requirements.
Western developed economies dominate the industry at present, owing to evolved energy policies and strong awareness levels. Europe, with Germany and Spain solar tracker market share leading the way, is likely to achieve 7,210.2 MW installed capacity by 2023.
U.S. solar tracker market size should reach 3,229.8 MW installed capacity by 2023. APAC, MEA and Latin America are relatively under developed regional markets and should offer significant potential for industry participants.
Solar tracker market size in India should exceed USD 60 million by 2023.
Competitive Market Share
With a number of regional participants with domestic presence, the global solar tracker market share is moderately fragmented, with just over 40% commanded by the top four players.
Hao solar, Abengoa, Grupo Calvijo, Mecasolar, SunPower Energia and PV Powerway are some widely known industry participants, catering to a significant chunk of demand in 2015.
