Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Market, By Type (Parabolic Trough, Linear Fresnel Reflector, Solar Po

Published Date: | Report Code : EP1944207


Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Market growth is expected to gain high momentum during the forecast period due to the increasing adoption of technologies using renewable energy. Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) systems are used to generate solar power by concentrating a large amount of sunlight in a small portion. Solar power is used to generate electricity. They make use of mirrors or reflectors fitted with a solar tracking system. The concentrated solar power (CSP) market has been segmented on the basis of type and end-user.

Segment Analysis

Based on type, the concentrated solar power (CSP) market has been divided into the parabolic trough, linear Fresnel reflector, solar power tower, and dish Stirling. These types are differentiated based on the placing of the panels.

A parabolic trough is a system that has a parabolically curved reflector that concentrates the sunlight on the receiver pipe, which is a meter above the surface. The temperature of the fluid in the pipe is then raised and the heat is used to generate electricity in a steam generator. Linear Fresnel reflector is similar to the parabolic trough, with the difference being the reflectors are not curved. The power tower is used to focus the sunlight onto the receiver, which is situated on top of the tower. A dish Stirling consists of a curved focus concentrator in the shape of a dish that is mounted on a two-axis tracking system.

Based on end-user, the market has been segmented into residential, commercial, and industrial. Among these, the use of CSP is more in the industrial segment, as several industries, such as utilities and mining, among others, are making use of it.
