During the Long Shutdown 3, scheduled from 2024 to mid 2026, CERN is planning an upgrade program in preparation of the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC), which will bring the luminosity up to 5 × 1034 cm−2 s−1, almost five times the one envisaged for 2017. As a consequence, up to 200 inelastic collisions on average will be superimposed on the event of interest. In this high-occupancy environment, reconstructing charged particle momenta with high precision is one of the biggest challenges. In order to face this new scenario, called Phase 2, the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment will build a completely new silicon tracking detector. New approaches to track finding will have to be implemented to exploit the capabilities of the new tracker in addition to the algorithms already in use. The expected performance of CMS tracking at the HL-LHC is presented in this contribution.
