Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Market Size Analysis

According to a recent survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, the Global Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Market grew at a CAGR of 18.6% between 2017-2021 and is estimated to be US$ 9,423.7Mn in 2022. Currently, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 15.9% and is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 41,215.0Mn by 2032 end.

Mirrors focus the incoming sunlight into a single spot for concentrated solar power. Here, this energy is transformed into heat that can be used as industrial process heat or to create steam to power a turbine. These systems can incorporate thermal energy storage units, providing electricity when it’s overcast or dark outside. For this technique, several modern tools are accessible, including power towers, fresnel reflectors, and parabolic troughs. The optimum tool can be used based on the circumstances.

Market Dynamic


Over the past ten years, renewable energy sources have gained attention due to the world’s increasing need for endless energy sources and the requirement to reduce carbon emissions. The global capacity was 1.3 GW at the end of 2010, but due to the expansion of CSP installations, it increased rapidly to more than 6 GW in 2019.

With more and more investments planned in the upcoming years, it is anticipated that this trend of increasing the share of renewable energies in each country’s power mix will continue. Around 29% of the electricity produced worldwide today comes from renewable sources; this percentage is predicted to grow exponentially over the next several years, driving the market’s expansion.


The main market limitation is the significant capital expenditure required to install this facility. Additionally, clients may choose solar PV installation over this technology in residential and commercial settings due to the need for a wide space. A significant flaw in the system is the average cost of electricity produced by CSP, which is USD 0.20/kWh, and solar PV, which is between USD 0.5-0.10/kWh.


Major industry players are attempting to introduce new cutting-edge technologies, which will raise the existing power generation, as solar energy installations have increased and higher operating efficacies have been documented worldwide. To maximize the heat transfer capability with the least amount of losses, new heat transfer fluids such as high-temperature salts, sCO2, and proppants are being tested. Additionally, scientists are developing new receiver coatings that will lessen the quantity of light deflected away.
