NEXTracker and Array Technologies Reign Supreme in Global PV Tracker Market, IHS Markit SaysMarch 30, 2017NEXTracker and Array Technologies remain far and away the leading suppliers of PV tracker systems globally, in addition to being leading suppliers of PV structural equipment in general. Vertically integrated suppliers First Solar and SunPower notably lost market share in 2016. This has coincided with First Solar’s announcement to downsize its EPC business and to exit the structures market in 2016. Convert Italia and Arctech have risen into the top five, finding success in emerging tracker markets outside of the United States in Latin America, the EMEA region, and India. In the United States -- the largest market for PV tracker products globally -- Soltec, GameChange Solar, and Sunlink were the winners in terms of growth in the market outside of the big two (NEXTracker and Array Technologies).
