Rising concerns to cut down GHG emissions, along with favorable government initiatives to promote green energy, will propel the concentrated solar power market growth. The development of infrastructure to encourage the use of solar energy in residential, utility, and commercial applications will further foster the demand for concentrating solar power. Concentrated solar power is a technology that utilizes focused sunlight to produce electricity. Depending on the types of technology used, the receiver fitted along with the concentrating solar power set up have fluid or gas running through them, which is then heated to a high temperature by the focused sunlight. This high-temperature fluid or gas further runs a turbine or piston which finally results in electricity generation using generators.

By Technology Analysis

“Parabolic Trough Is Anticipated to Observe the Dominating Share

Based on the technology, the concentrated solar power market can be majorly divided into the parabolic trough, power tower, and linear fresnel. The parabolic trough is anticipated to lead the industry outlook in terms of volume as well as market size over the considered forecast period. The use of conventional steam turbines and steam generators in the parabolic trough, along with the operating efficiency and economic factor, are the major factors that propel the segment to occupy a significant concentrated solar power market share in the global market.

In design considerations, the parabolic trough structures have a focal point for each of the mirror tilted, which functions individually to generate the maximum heat possible, which is not the case in other designs that have all the mirrors pointing towards a single focus point. This positively affects the working efficiency, and therefore parabolic troughs are mostly preferred over other technologies.

By Application Analysis

“Deployment for Large Scale Projects Will Drive the Growth in Utilities

Based on the application, the CSP market can be segmented into residential, non-residential, and utility. The large area required for installation of concentrated solar panels and minimum power to justify the capital are mainly justified in the utility sector. The area required constraints on the market growth in residential sectors, and availability of other types of solar panels negatively impacts the increase in non-residential sectors. The rising population and government targets to satisfy electricity demand will flourish the investment being made in the utilities.


Geographically, the global market has been analyzed across five major regions, which are North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. As per concentrated solar power market analysis, Asia Pacific is projected to witness an exponential growth in the given forecast period. The major reasons contributing to the growth are the rising demand for clean energy in major countries that include China, India, and other Southeast Asian countries. Government initiatives of rural electrification have led to major projects being deployed across areas being deprived of electricity. Also, the green energy targets being looked upon by various countries in coming years have increased the deployment rate of solar panels in the region. Currently, China and India are the major countries that are projected to grow at a healthy rate during the given forecast period.

Concentrated solar power is a technology involving the use of mirrors to focus the sunlight on a particular point, where the energy from sun rays in stored and used to generate high-temperature heat. This heat is now used to create steam, which going further drives the steam turbine to generate electricity. Electricity is generated by passing the generated steam through a conventional generator. The concentrated solar plant in operation has mainly two parts, one which is used for collection of solar energy and conversion into heat and the second one, which is used to generate electricity using the generated heat.

Various technologies are available for energy generation using concentrated solar. The main difference in technologies used is the arrangement of mirrors and the receiver at different angles. In parabolic trough systems, parabolic reflectors are used, in power tower systems flat heliostats are used, and in linear fresnel long, narrow, shallow-curvature mirrors are used as reflectors to focus light on receivers.
