"Water Based Cleaning Systems are Making Way for 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, water-based cleaning system leads the market considerably in terms of market value. It is considered as one of the most efficient and cost-effective types for cleaning solar panels. However, the system is not as efficient in water scares areas such as solar plants located at deserts. Robotic cleaning systems which also includes drones are the fastest growing cleaning systems amongst all. This particular type of cleaning systems is mostly preferred for large solar plants where manual cleaning proved quite tedious and hence holds tremendous potential to grow along with solar farms.

"Manual Cleaning Systems Leads the Market But Expected to Lose Market Share to Autonomous Cleaning System"  

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 system. Till 2017, manual cleaning systems are widely used across several small and medium scale solar farms. Manual systems are also extensively used for residential solar panel and hence, manual solar panel cleaning systems are leading the market with a considerable margin. However, with exponential growth and expanding sizes of solar farms are making manual cleaning a tedious and expensive affair. Consequently, autonomous solar panel cleaning equipment is gaining more emphasis over its manual version. In coming years, autonomous cleaning systems powered by robots, drones and mechanical systems are expected to claim significant amount of market share.

"High Utilization of Solar Power in Asia Pacific Countries Helped the Region To Emerge on Top Among Other Regions"

With like of countries such as China, Japan, India, and Australia which are ranked in the top 10 countries in the world for using solar energy, Asia Pacific emerged as the global leader in solar panel cleaning systems market. Asia Pacific have a favorable condition for solar power generation and the energy requirement here is also considerably high. This is one of the major reason for the growth in solar panel cleaning systems market in Asia Pacific. After Asia Pacific, Europe is also a major contributor to the global solar panel cleaning systems market. 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.
