The global concentrating solar power market size is estimated to be USD 6.0 Billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 19.9 Billion by 2027; it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 26.9% during the forecast period. The key drivers for the concentrating solar power market include effective integration of CSP systems with thermal storage systems, and Use of CSP in desalination and enhanced oil recovery processes.
“Linear concentrating systems: The second largest segment of the concentrating solar power market, by technology “
Based on technology, the concentrating solar power market has been split into solar power towers, linear concentrating systems, and dish stirling technology. Linear concentrating system were estimated to account for a second largest share of the concentrating solar power market in 2021. Reduced CAPEX and widespread implementation of parabolic troughs and linear Fresnel technologies are the key factors driving the implementation of linear concentrating systems.
“100 MW and Above segment is expected to emerge as the largest segment based on capacity”
The concentrating solar power market has been segmented into the less than 50 MW, 50 MW to 99 MW, and 100 MW and Above based on capacity. 100 MW and Above is expected to hold the largest market share. The 100 MW and above segment is driven by the need to install concentrating solar power systems for utility power generation applications in regions such as Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa
“Middle East & Africa is expected to be the second largest market during the forecast period.”
Middle East & Africa is expected to be the second-fastest growing market due to need for water desalination, and development of renewable sectors in countries such as UAE, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa are driving the market for concentrating solar power in this region.
