Solar Panel Cleaning Systems Market By Type (Water Based Cleaning System, Electrostatic Cleaning System and Robotic Cleaning System), By Mode of Operation (Manual and Autonomous) - Growth, Future Prospects, and Competitive Landscape, 2018-2026

The solar energy industry has witnessed tremendous growth in terms of market value and energy produced in the past few years, and the market is not expected to halt anytime soon in the coming years. This associated market, such as the global solar panel cleaning systems market, is expected to grow multifold in tandem with the increasing size of solar energy harvesting farms. The introduction of advanced robotics and drones for cleaning solar panels is all set to drive the market with a healthy growth rate. The overall solar panel cleaning systems market is expected to reach new heights at the end of the forecast period, growing at a CAGR of 7.5%.

Water-based cleaning systems are making way for a new generation of robotic cleaning systems.

Solar panel cleaning systems are broadly classified into water-based systems, electrostatic systems, and robotic systems on the basis of type. Among all cleaning systems, water-based systems lead the market considerably in terms of market value. It is considered one of the most efficient and cost-effective types for cleaning solar panels. However, the system is not as efficient in water-scarce areas such as solar plants located in deserts. Robotic cleaning systems, which include drones, are the most rapidly growing cleaning systems. This type of cleaning system is mostly used for large solar plants where manual cleaning is time-consuming, and it has a huge potential to grow alongside solar farms.

Manual cleaning systems lead the market but are expected to lose market share to autonomous cleaning systems.

By mode of operation, solar panel cleaning systems are divided into two major variants, namely, manual solar panel cleaning systems and autonomous solar panel cleaning systems. Up until 2017, manual cleaning systems were widely used across several small and medium-scale solar farms. Manual systems are also extensively used for residential solar panels, and hence, manual solar panel cleaning systems are leading the market by a considerable margin. However, with the exponential growth and increasing size of solar farms, manual cleaning is becoming a time-consuming and costly endeavor. Consequently, autonomous solar panel cleaning equipment is gaining more traction over its manual version. In the coming years, autonomous cleaning systems powered by robots, drones, and mechanical systems are expected to claim a significant amount of market share.

High Utilization of Solar Power in Asia Pacific Countries contributed to the region's dominance over other regions.

With countries such as China, Japan, India, and Australia ranking among the top ten solar energy users in the world, Asia Pacific emerged as the global leader in the solar panel cleaning systems market. Asia Pacific has favorable conditions for solar power generation, and the energy requirement here is also considerably high. This is one of the major reasons for the growth of the market for solar panel cleaning systems in the Asia Pacific. After Asia Pacific, Europe is also a major contributor to the global market for solar panel cleaning systems. The positive outlook of Europe towards renewable energy generation allowed solar energy farms to flourish in Europe, and consequently, Europe is ranked second in the global solar panel cleaning systems market.
