The global concentrated solar power market is the focus of analysis of a recent market research report published by Transparency Market Research. The study states that the market will exhibit a momentous 19.4% CAGR over 2014 through 2020 in terms of value, while in terms of volume, the market is projected to exhibit 20.3% CAGR over the same duration. The report is titled “Concentrated Solar Power Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2020,” and is available on the company website for sale.

The report states that the market is majorly driven by rising efficiencies of concentrated solar PVs, the rising adoption of solar power as a reliable and sustainable green energy source, and the rapid pace of technological and product innovations in the sector. Some of the major benefits of concentrated solar power cells include cost-effectiveness, durability, and capability of cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions.


Rising efficiencies and the reducing cost factor are playing major role in helping concentrated solar power technologies realize greater gains in the global market. Europe was the leading regional market for concentrated solar power in 2013, accounting for a dominant share of over 43% in the global market. However, the recent economic downturn in the region had a noticeable negative impact on the overall solar power market and also severely impacted the market for concentrated solar power.
