Concentrating Solar Power Market by Technology (Parabolic Trough, Power Tower, Linear Fresnel & Dish/Engine system), Components (Solar field, Power Block, and Thermal Storage), End-User (Utilities, EOR & Others ), and Region - Global Forecast to 2021
“The concentrating solar power market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.3% from 2016 to 2021”
The concentrating solar power market is projected to reach USD 10.96 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 10.3% from 2016 to 2021. Concentrating solar power are used in residential, commercial, and industrial. Growing environmental concerns over carbon emissions and efforts to reduce air pollution, policy support from governments to enable adoption of renewable technologies and dispatchability of power. On the other hand, higher initial investment and higher payback time period are the major restraints of the global concentrating solar power market.
“The power tower segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR from 2016 to 2021”
A power tower utilizes many large, sun-tracking mirrors to focus sunlight on a receiver at the top of a tower, a heat transfer fluid in the receiver aids in steam generation generate steam to produce electricity. Parabolic trough segment has maximum market share in total CSP market. The main reason behind maximum share is falling price of solar CSP and at par solar irradiance in Middle East & Africa and Asia-Pacific region.
“Middle East & Africa: The largest market for concentrating solar power”
The Middle East & African market is projected to be the largest growing for concentrating solar power installations from 2016 to 2021. The Middle East & African market’s growth is driven by power generation, enhanced oil recovery and desalination industry operations. Morocco, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Oman are expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Morocco is one of the most attractive market for CSP installations and has many CSP projects under development and in the pipeline.
