The global concentrating solar power market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.3% from 2016 to 2021, to reach a market size of USD 10.96 Billion by 2021. The growth is attributed to 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.

The report segments the concentrating solar power market based on end-users into utilities, enhanced oil recovery and others (mining & desalination). Utilities segment is the largest end-user of concentrating solar power owing to the growing number of medium to large scale projects under development and in pipeline across the globe. Based on technology, the parabolic trough segment is expected to dominate the concentrating solar power market during the forecast period. The market has also been segmented based on the components into three sub-segments: solar field, power block and thermal storage. The solar field segment is the largest market; due to large number of complex and costly subcomponents within the segment.

In this report, the concentrating solar power market has been analyzed with respect to five regions, namely, the North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America and the Middle East & Africa. The Middle East & Africa is expected to dominate the global concentrating solar power market during the forecast period, owing to government initiatives towards grid scale renewable power generation. The region is expected to remain largest market among other regions, during the forecast period.

Concentrating Solar Power Market

Higher initial investment and higher payback time period are expected to slow down the demand for concentrating solar power during the forecast period. However, government and private fund availability may offer huge opportunities.

Some of the leading players in the concentrating solar power market include Abengoa Solar (Spain), Aalborg CSP (Denmark), ACWA Power (Saudi Arabia), BrightSource Energy, Inc. (U.S) and eSolar Inc (U.S), among others. Contracts & agreements was the strategy most commonly adopted by the top players in the market, constituting 54% of the total developments from 2012 to 2016. It was followed by joint ventures & collaborations, new product developments/launches, expansions, partnerships, and mergers & acquisitions.
