Solar Tracker Market Research, 2031

The global solar tracker market size was valued at $8.9 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $16.0 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2022 to 2031.

Solar trackers use a variety of electrical parts, such as actuators, motors, and sensors to position the solar cell for focusing the sun's radiation to maximize the amount of energy captured. Electricity is produced further from the solar energy that has been gathered which is used in various end user industry such as residential, commercial, utility and others.

Additionally, the increased emphasis on sustainable energy is fueling the expansion of the global market for solar trackers. A significant increase in the number of solar panel installations worldwide is one of the key factors that propels growth of the solar tracker market. Furthermore, the market for solar trackers is expanding as a result of adoption of helpful government laws that support numerous solar energy projects. Companies are focusing on producing advanced technology-based products as a result of rise in industrial demand for advanced equipment for tracking purposes. For instance, Soltec introduced SFOne solar tracker for high-power modules in June 2021. It is made to work with modules that have 78 and 72 cells, and it is self-powered by a module, which lowers operating costs.

Utility witnessed highest CAGR and is projected as the most lucrative segment

By application, utility segment is the fastest growing segment in 2021. This is attributed to Utilization of solar tracker in the utility sector has increased, owing to the fact that solar trackers help increase electricity production by around one-third, and by 40% in some regions depending upon sunlight, compared with modules at a fixed angle. Therefore, use of trackers help generate more energy and, in turn, more economic benefits to countries.

Solar Tracker Market by Region

By region, asia-pacific is the fastest growing region during the forecast period.Owing to demand for the product is driven by rapid industrialization and commercialization, followed by rising solar technology installation. Furthermore, favorable regulatory policies, schemes, and tax subsidies to incorporate advanced software across the installed PV systems will enhance the market environment.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global solar tracker market

The novel coronavirus is an incomparable global pandemic that has spread to over 180 countries and caused huge losses of lives and the economy around the globe. The adoption of solar tracker for electricity generation, which was strongly dependent on China and India, as well as the world economy both suffered from the health crisis brought on by the spread of COVID-19. Due to supply chain interruption and a lack of raw materials, manufacturing units were forced to shut down during the lockdown which is negatively impacting the solar tracker for power generation market statistics. Additionally, a labor shortage caused supply chain issues in the United States, which was a dominating country in the solar tracker market, as well as a nation lockdown hampered industrial progress. Further, the disruptions to transport and logistics affected due to strict government regulations as well as nationwide lockdown led to a significant pause in delivering the product, rising shipment cost and price of fuel, taxes, workforce, and disruptions to shipping facilities. However, it is anticipated that sales of solar trackers for power generation will increase in the next years due to elements including supportive government policies and initiatives to fulfil expanding energy demand using renewable energy sources.

Analyst Review

According to CXOs of leading companies, the global solar tracker market is projected to exhibit high growth potential. Solar tracker offers electrical and thermal stability, provides wind resistance, and is dimensionally stable, owing to which it is widely used in residential, commercial, agriculture, and other end-use sectors. 

In addition, single-axis solar trackers are used in most installations as they provide enough electricity, are more affordable, and need less complicated procedures than dual-axis trackers. Single axis tracking systems are the most widely used solar trackers in the utility industry as utility installations are ground mounted and solar trackers can be used to track the sun during the day. Furthermore, these trackers are widely used in utility applications, especially in developing and developed nations as a result of expanding government subsidies and feed-in tariff programs that make customers more linear toward purchasing single axis type solar trackers. For instance, in May 2019, Arctech launched an independent single-axis tracker, SkySmart-2. It is a 120-module 2P solar tracker that improves stability for PV plants in poor weather by addressing the instability issue with normal 2P or two modules in portrait tracking systems. Dual axis trackers are expected to gain market share in the short term, owing to rising and incoming concentrated solar power plants, where they are extensively preferred.

CXOs further added that sustained economic growth and the development of the commercial and industrial sectors have surged the popularity of solar tracker market.
