Solar Tracker Installation Market Outlook - 2026

The global solar tracker installation market was valued at $162.7 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach $379.2 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 11.1% from 2019 to 2026. A solar tracker is a device meant to turn the photovoltaic modules in such a way that it continuously faces the sun. This is done to maximize the irradiation received by the photovoltaic array.

Solar tracker installation market growth is driven by supportive government regulations that are escalating the installment of solar panels. The impact of government regulation on the global solar tracker installation market is positive. These regulations are motivating the installation of solar panels. In the U.S., China, and other countries, solar investments have been motivated mainly by the requirements of states’ renewable electricity standards. Solar projects also get assistance from federal incentives such as the federal investment tax credit, which enables to cover 30% of the initial costs. Solar projects built in the Western U.S. on federal lands are benefitting by state and federal agencies that coordinate in studies and agree on investments that are related to reduce environmental impacts.

According to the International Energy Agency, the share of renewable energy to meet the global energy demand is predicted to grow in the next five years to reach 12.4% in 2023. Renewable energy is derived from natural processes such as wind and sunlight. Solar, geothermal, wind, bioenergy, hydropower, and ocean power are some of the major sources of renewable energy. Currently, renewable energy is utilized in heating, electricity, cooling, and transport sectors. Furthermore, increase in concerns regarding greenhouse gases emissions and growth in need for energy security are expected to drive the demand for solar energy. Therefore, the demand for solar tracker installation is also expected to increase. This in turn will boost the growth of the global solar tracker installation market.

Developing new renewable resources require large initial investments to build infrastructure. These investments increase the cost of providing renewable electricity, especially during early years. Initially, the developers need to find publicly acceptable sites with good resources and with access to transmission lines. Finding a potential solar site requires several years of monitoring to determine whether they are suitable. In addition, the workers need to be trained to install, operate, and maintain the new technologies. Some renewables require operating experiences in certain climatic conditions, before the performance can be optimized. All these factors increase the cost of installing solar panels. This high cost is expected to hamper the market growth as it limits the use of solar trackers.

Based on type, the solar tracker installation market analysis is done into single-axis and dual-axis tracker. The single-axis tracker segment is further divided into horizontal and vertical tracker. Single axis trackers turn on one axis moving back and forth in a solitary way. Various kinds of single-pivot trackers are used, and this include horizontally and vertically adjusted. Double axis trackers move in two distinct ways. Types incorporate tip-tilt and azimuth-altitude. A double axis tracker is used to situating a mirror and divert daylight along a fixed axis toward a stationary collector. Since these trackers pursue the sun vertically and on a level plane, they help acquire most sunlight. Hence, based on type, the global solar tracker installation market is segmented into single axis and dual axis tracker.

Analyst Review

The solar industry is consistently advancing either to address difficulties inside a market or to improve cost and accessibility. Sun trackers have been around from a longer time; however, continuous development shows that the market is more dynamic and is expected to expand significantly in the recent years. Valmont Industrial’s acquisition of Convert in 2018 is one of the significant steps taken in global solar tracker installation market. Valmont have established themselves in metal fabrication, galvanization, coatings, and corrosion protection technologies. It has a strong presence in North America as well as in other countries. It is expected that Valmont’s capability in solar transmission towers, distribution pole manufacturing, and design & engineering will improve TRJ Solar Tracker.

It is expected that the government regulation will also play an important role in boosting the growth of the solar tracker installation market. In developing country such as India, solar technologies offer attractive opportunities to save electricity. The clean and emission-free source of energy is expected to reduce fossil fuel consumption significantly. This is projected to reduce carbon footprint of the industrial sector, assisting nations to reduce their greenhouse emissions. The Government of India (Gol) through Bureau of Energy Efficiency has initiated a massive program to conserve energy and promote CSP technologies. These technologies are also offering opportunities for development of homegrown technologies that can create local jobs and take “Make in India” initiative forward.  All these initiatives are expected to increase the demand for solar technology, which in turn is anticipated to boost the demand for solar tracker installation.
