Global PV Tracker Market Shares and Shipment Trends 2016

by Scott Moskowitz

Update: For the latest PV Tracker data and analysis, check The Global PV Tracker Landscape 2017.

The PV tracker market has become less concentrated, with the top four vendors accounting for only 64% of global shipments in 2016, compared to 74% in 2015. Indian and Chinese vendors climbed the charts in 2016 as trackers have become more popular in those countries, and the market continues to globalize.
