Demand for sustainable green energy produced by renewable resources such as solar power has increased significantly due to the global warming. Solar power is generated through the sun’s radiations that fall upon solar panels. Solar tracker is a device used to position a solar panel towards the sun. The tracking of the sun is done precisely by the systems of single axis and dual axis.

Based on type, the solar tracker market has been segmented into single axis and dual axis. Single axis solar tracker rotates on its own axis, moving back and forth in a single direction. Vertical, horizontal, tilted, and polar aligned are the different types of single axis trackers. Dual axis trackers continuously face the sun, as they move in two different directions. Types of dual axis trackers include azimuth-altitude and tip-tilt.
In terms of technological outlook, the solar tracker market has been divided into three major solar power technologies: solar photovoltaic (PV), concentrated photovoltaic (CPV), and concentrated solar power (CSP). Photovoltaic system employs solar panels, which include a number of cells that often contain silicon. This photovoltaic material (silicon) then converts solar radiations into electric current. Concentrated photovoltaic power generation also uses silicon as PV. On CPV panels the radiations from the sun are concentrated upon a photovoltaic material using lenses. For successful installation of the CPV panel, it must be facing the sun.
