The Global Solar Tracker Market Size is expected to reach USD 254.07 Billion by 2033, at a CAGR of 22.02% during the forecast period 2023 to 2033.
A solar tracker is a device that helps a solar panel or solar reflector towards the sun to harness more sunlight. Regardless of the weather, the trackers are fixed to the solar panels so they can change positions about the sun. By doing this, the solar panels' overall efficiency is increased and the solar modules are positioned correctly to capture the most solar energy. Active, passive, single-axis and dual-axis trackers are a few of the frequently used variations, depending on the design and tracking mechanism. They have several benefits, including the production of extra energy, binary format availability, and low space requirements. Furthermore, solar trackers use a variety of electrical components, such as actuators, motors, and sensors, to position the solar cell so that the sun's radiation is focused to capture the most energy. The collected solar energy is further converted into electricity, which is used in a variety of end-user industries, including utility, commercial, and residential. Moreover, one of the primary drivers of market growth is a significant increase in the number of solar panel installations around the world. Additionally, the market is growing due to the adoption of supportive government policies that encourage different solar energy projects.

Installing solar trackers in residential, commercial, and industrial settings is becoming more common as consumer preferences for renewable energy sources and utility-scale projects gain traction. Other significant growth-inducing factors include a variety of product innovations, such as the creation of concentrated photovoltaics and solar photovoltaics that are more affordable and efficient. These systems' creative design makes it easier to generate power at a low cost. Further factors that are anticipated to propel the market include the growing demand for off-grid energy and the integration of cloud computing and Internet of Things (IoT)-based solutions.
High investment and a lack of necessary infrastructure pose a threat to the growth of the solar tracker market. Solar trackers improve solar panel efficiency, but they are expensive to install. Installing a solar tracker incurs additional costs for labour and space. The cost of tracking systems used in the majority of utility-scale projects is increased by the rising cost of steel, which is one of the main factors impeding the growth of the solar tracker market.
By Type Insights
The single axis tracker segment dominates the market with the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
On the basis of type, the global solar tracker market is segmented into single axis tracker, and double axis tracker. Among these, the single axis tracker segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share over the forecast period. The simple design of single-axis solar trackers allows for the most photovoltaic panel placement per square area while also providing a shorter payback time. Furthermore, governments and energy companies are facing a challenge in increasing power capacity for current and future projects. A 20–30% capacity surge can be very helpful with single-axis solar trackers. Consequently, during the projection period, it is anticipated to generate noteworthy prospects for enterprises engaged in the production of single-axis solar tracking systems.
By Technology Insights
The photovoltaic (PV) segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period.
On the basis of technology, the global solar tracker market is segmented into photovoltaic (PV), and concentrated solar power (CSP). Among these, the photovoltaic (PV) segment is witnessing significant growth over the forecast period. The compatibility of PV cells with standard photovoltaic module technologies is the primary reason for PV technology's largest market share. The use of solar PV in utility and non-utility applications will increase due to the growing cost of electricity caused by the supply-demand gap. The low cost of manufacturing and minimal raw material requirements of PV systems results in the production of inexpensive solar power.
By Application Insights
The utility sector segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global solar tracker market during the forecast period.
Based on the application, the global solar tracker market is classified into utility sector, residential sector, and commercial sector. Among these, the utility sector segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global solar tracker market during the forecast period. The use of solar trackers in utility applications is expected to increase as electricity costs rise and there is a greater demand for renewable energy. Since utility solar installations are ground-mounted and single axis trackers can be used to follow the sun during the day, they are the most popular type of solar trackers used in the utility industry. Trackers are being used extensively in utility applications due to rising government subsidies combined with feed-in tariff schemes, especially in North America and Europe.
North America dominates the market with the largest market share over the forecast period.

North America is dominating the market with the largest market share over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the growing emphasis on renewable energy and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, which recommends renewable energy as the nation's primary source of energy. Through several programs, the US government hopes to boost the economy's usage of solar energy. The segment of solar trackers based on dual axis is anticipated to gain substantial momentum during the forecast period due to its superior power durability and extensive usage in distributed utilities. In addition, some of the main factors driving the demand for solar trackers in this region are Mexico's ongoing urbanization, rising power consumption, rising energy security, and rising infrastructure investment.
Asia Pacific is expected to grow the fastest during the forecast period. A paradigm shifts toward renewable energy production, followed by increased solar technology installation, is the primary driver of the solar tracker industry's expansion. Forty large solar technology contracts, including installations of cutting-edge PV panels and single-axis solar trackers, were launched by China and India. Additionally, it is anticipated that the business environment will change due to a growing preference for solar-based energy sources to meet the growing power demand in the manufacturing sectors. The market for solar trackers in India is anticipated to grow in tandem with rising energy demand and consumer awareness of renewable energy sources.
