Global Solar Concentrated Photovoltaic Market 2014-2018

Global Solar Concentrated Photovoltaic Market 2014-2018 is a new market research publication announced by Reportstack. A solar CPV system concentrates sunlight on solar cells with the help of an optical device, increasing the efficiency of photovoltaic cells that convert energy from sunlight directly into electricity. The optics used concentrates the sunlight by a factor of 500 to 1,000 and focuses it on the solar cells, which are reduced to a small fraction of the CPV module. This helps in the cost-efficient use of highly efficient multi-junction solar cells. Solar CPV requires a high level of radiation concentration to increase its output and solar trackers help to monitor the sun's rays during the day so as to focus the sunlight falling over a huge area onto a small set of PV cells. Solar CPV is gaining competitiveness in areas with high direct normal irradiation (DNI). The solar CPV installations are increasing in countries such as Spain, the US, Australia, China, and India, which receive high solar radiation. Solar CPV is a relatively immature technology compared to other PV technologies and an increase in concentration and efficiency will lead to its LCOE (Levelized Cost of Electricity) reduction. It is expected to gain lower LCOE than PV technologies in the forecast period. Moreover, lower land requirements for solar CPV provide an advantage compared to PV. 

The analysts forecast the Global Solar CPV market will grow at a CAGR of 34.1 percent over the period 2013-2018. The Global Solar CPV market can be segmented into three divisions: High Concentrated Photovoltaic, Medium Concentrated Photovoltaic and Low Concentrated Photovoltaic. This division is based upon the degree of concentration of CPV systems.
