Pune, India, May, 2018 /MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future published a cooked research report on global concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) market. The concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) market is expected to grow at the CAGR of around 17% during the period 2022 to 2030.
CPV is identified as the best substitute for other conventional fossil fuel energy sources that are used to reduce carbon emission by meeting the electricity needs. Concentrated photovoltaics (CPV) work well in high heat regions. It has been of most interest for power generation in sunny regions with DNI values of more than 2000 kWh/(m^2a). CPV electricity generation is dependent on DNI as it does not absorb any diffuse from the sun. This made CPV system more feasible in the high DNI region across the globe. It is expected that a high number of the CPV systems will be deployed in these sunlight rich regions. However, CPV tracking system synchronisation is the major challenge for the market. Tracking permits CPV systems to generate a greater amount of energy throughout the day in sun rich regions, notably during the late part of the day when electricity demand peaks. Currently, CPV tracking with sufficient accuracy and reliability is required. Improper tracking of CPV system results into less energy output and hence stands unfeasible in major regions, across the globe.
Market Research Analysis
On the basis of type, HCPV accounted for the largest market share of 93.14%, with a market value of USD 950.3 million in 2016. A key reason for the increased installation of HCPV across large-scale power plants is the substantial enhancement in the efficiency of individual modules and a significant reduction in costs of the overall power generation projects. Low concentrated photovoltaic (LCPV) also has several advantages, such as its ability to reach high efficiencies even with diffuse irradiance, and its utilisation of less expensive and widely proven silicon solar cells.
Based on application, Utilities accounted for the largest market share of 85.16% with a market value of USD 868.84 million in 2016. Commercial segment is also another major application of the market. There are numerous benefits of CPV power installation at commercial sites such as, generation of electricity at the site itself, low electricity bills, minimised impact of rising energy costs and low carbon footprint. Hence, commercial segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.76% during the forecast period.
