The global solar tracker market size was valued at nearly 8.06 Billion in 2018 and is projected to reach more than 18.71 Billion by the end of 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.09% in the forecast period.

A solar tracker is an equipment used by various users to increase the efficiency of electricity generation using solar systems. A solar tracker assists the movement of the solar panels capturing the sunrays according to the direction of the sun, ensuring the maximum utilization of the available sunlight for electricity generation. Specifically, the deployment of solar trackers increases the efficiency of the installed solar system by 25-35%, which augurs well for the global market.

Solar trackers are manufactured by various companies and the cost of trackers mainly depends on the number of solar modules that are to be managed and the amount of target energy that needs to be generated.  Solar trackers are available in two types, namely, single axis and dual axis.

Single-axis trackers provide the movement of panels in one direction only. The dual-axis trackers offer the movement of panels in both directions. The dual-axis trackers offer 10-15% more efficient than the single-axis tracker. The cost consideration has seen more usage of single-axis trackers as compared to the dual-axis trackers.

The increasing demand for green energy has witnessed many countries enter into the solar market and therefore using solar trackers for electricity generation, expanding the global solar tracker market size. Also, the subsidies provided by various governments to fulfill their ambitious green energy targets and reduce carbon footprints have acted as market drivers for the global market. The solar industry has been seen as a significant opportunity by the investor, and therefore, investments in the solar tracker industry have increased over the years.

Over the last decade, North America and Europe have dominated the global market. The major countries in the market are the USA, Italy, Spain, and Germany. In recent years, the other regions have exhibited healthy growth in the market, namely, Latin America and the Asia Pacific.

The major countries in these regions are Brazil, Mexico, Chile, China, Japan, and India, where solar tracker technology is evolving rapidly. With the saturation of solar in developed countries, the other emerging countries stand as a significant opportunity for the growth of the global solar tracker market.

Market Segmentation

"Multiple Benefits of Solar Photovoltaic to Boost Growth of the Segment"

Solar trackers can be deployed in both solar photovoltaic and concentrated solar power. But in concentrated solar, mirrors are used to accumulate the sunrays at a destined location. Dual-axis trackers are used in this segment, which further puts restrictions of deployment of solar trackers in concentrated solar. Another factor that positively affects the growth of the implementation of trackers in solar photovoltaic is the limited deployment of concentrated solar all over the world. As compared to the installations of solar photovoltaic, the installations of concentrated solar are shallow in number, which limits the spread of solar trackers. Therefore, solar photovoltaic will dominate the global market in the forecast period.

"Single Axis to hold a Greater Market Share in Solar Tracker Market"

The single-axis trackers, which are emerging as a popular type of solar trackers, will dominate the global market during the forecast period. The increased adoption for single-axis trackers will mainly occur due to the inexpensive nature and need for less space as compared to the dual-axis trackers. Another reason adding to the growth of this segment is the low-efficiency increase using the dual-axis trackers. The increase in efficiency is only around 10% with the dual-axis as compared to a single axis.  

"Utility Segment to Remain Dominant Due to Increasing Efficiency"

The demand for electricity generation from renewable sources, such as solar trackers, has been increasing all over the world at a significant rate to satisfy the high requirement of the masses. As the deployment of solar trackers increases, the efficiency of the solar system increases by 25-35%, and the adoption of solar trackers in the utility segment also increases substantially. This trend of application of solar trackers in the utility segment is set to continue in the coming years with increased electricity generation using solar energy, boosting the global solar tracker market growth.
