Based on the product type, the global floating solar panels market is segmented as follows:

  • Stationary Floating Solar Panel
  • Tracking Floating Solar Panel

Floating Solar Panels Market

Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are used as an eco-friendly and renewable source energy based power generation technology worldwide. Solar panels are installed on roof tops and free land, but due to high occupancy of space and unavailability of large free space lands was a major issue. However, these issues were resolved by introduction of floating solar panel technology.

On the basis of product type, floating solar panels market is segmented into stationary floating solar panels and solar-tracking floating panels. Between the two, stationary floating solar panels accounted for larger revenue share and is expected to retain its position in global floating solar panels market during the forecast period. Stationary floating solar panels have quite a lot of benefits over the solar tracking floating panels for instance, increased evaporation control and efficiency owing to cooling effect of water.

Based on the location, the global floating solar panels market is segmented as follows:

  • Offshore Floating
  • Onshore Floating

Floating Solar Panels Market

By location in 2015, onshore floating accounted for largest market share of the global floating solar panels market in terms of revenue and projected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. It is also projected to be the fastest growing segment. The segment is expected to witness high growth due to increased efficiency of solar PV coupled with associated advantage of floating solar PV to prevent evaporation loss of water. Furthermore, increasing investments by private and utilities investors towards the deployment of large scale photovoltaic projects across various ponds, dams and riverbeds will further complement the industry outlook.

For the purpose of this study, the global floating solar panels market is categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

Floating Solar Panels Market

For the purpose of this study, the floating solar panels market is categorized into regional markets viz., North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America, and Middle East and Africa. In 2015, Asia Pacific was observed to be the largest market for floating solar panels. Asia Pacific is also anticipated to witness high growth in demand for floating solar panels. Growing investment in floating solar panels coupled with favourable regulatory support is expected to augment the growth of solar panels in Japan, China and India. Further, countries such as South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia and Maldives are projected to increase their investment in development of floating solar panel plants during the forecast period. Yamakura Dam project in Japan is expected to drive the demand for floating solar panels over the forecast period. In Europe, U.K. was estimated to be the largest country level market in 2015 and is also anticipated to witness high growth during the forecast period. Upcoming projects such as construction of Europe’s largest floating solar power farm with 23,000 solar panels on the Queen Elizabeth II reservoir at Walton-on-Thames is anticipated to drive the demand for floating solar panels in the region during the forecast period. North America, Latin America and Middle East & Africa are also projected to witness strong growth during the forecast period.
