Solar Panel Cleaning Market Growth to Remain Influenced by Demand for Higher and a Consistent Efficiency Quotient of Solar Panels

Since the discovery of harnessing clean solar energy for daily use and emergence of solar panels, it was considered that solar panels can provide optimum output without solar panel cleaning. Moreover, in early 2000s, manufacturers of solar panels, to gain customer confidence and acquire new customers, used to support this theory during the sector’s boom phase. However, with the slowdown of the solar industry in 2014-2017 coupled with higher deployment of solar panels on industrial sites, farm roofs, commercial sites and on establishments in arid zones, it became evident that in heavy soiling environment, the yield obtained from solar panels significantly reduces, in turn questioning the output efficiency of the panel. More than a luxury, solar panel cleaning is now considered as a prerequisite in a bid to maintain the solar output and efficiency.

Challenges such as dirt accumulation on panels, bird droppings and slow yet a continuous deposition of sand due to wind can result in solar panel soiling, consecutively impacting output. Accumulation of dust and soiling can also result in permanent loss of power or frequent power outages resulting in higher maintenance cost for clearing the damage occurred. This gave a push towards proactive and timely cleaning of solar panels to maintain the needed output level. Solar panel cleaning equipment can facilitate reduction in maintenance cost alongside enhancing the efficiency of the system in place. In this backdrop, acceptance towards cleaning of solar panels is expected to influence the growth of the solar panel cleaning market worldwide.

Shift Towards Effective and Semi-Automatic Cleaning Techniques Likely to Shape Solar Panel Cleaning Market

Various solar panel cleaning techniques are being developed since couple of years. The traditional method of using handheld brushes has been a widely accepted solar panel cleaning technique especially for small installations. For rooftop panels that have higher inclinations, particularly for rooftop with steep slope, manual cleaning technique is carried out which is cost efficient. However, for large scale installations, it becomes challenging to adopt this method. Moreover, it incurs high labor cost and raises concerns pertaining to labor safety and cleaning efficiency. With growing inclination towards technology and smart infrastructure, a shift towards using effective semi-automatic solar panel cleaning is likely to be witnessed, for both commercial and residential installations. The most technique is using robots, which is a versatile solution for solar panel cleaning. Ranging from small to big size robots and with varying weights is available, depending on the size of installation to be cleaned. Robotic solar panel cleaning is a semi automatic method with a single user control. This technique facilitates faster cleaning and reduced physical strain. That said, use of advanced robotic solar panel cleaning is expected to give a significant momentum to the growth of the solar panel cleaning market in the future.

North America and Europe Lead as Utility and Industrial Sectors Opt for Clean Energy

On the back of growing concerns regarding environment health and greenhouse emissions, government authorities supported and promoted use of clean energy across various industries including manufacturing, food and beverages and utility sector. This resulted in increasing PV installations worldwide to suffice electricity requirements, especially from medium and large scale facilities. For instance, according to Solar Power Europe, in 2021, the EU witnessed new solar PV installations with capacity of around 25.9 GW, which reflects a 34% increase over 19.3 GW capacity installations in 2020. This is expected to increase to reach an installation capacity of 237.6 GW by end of 2025 and further estimated to touch 672 GW by end of 2030. Likewise, according to the US EIA (Energy Information Administration), use of solar power in industrial sector will gain significant momentum in the coming years. In 2020, 3% solar generation, off the entire US electricity production, was observed, which is expected to touch 20% by end of 2050. US EIA analysis also states that in 2022, solar power will account for a higher share in the US electricity generating capacity and is expected to touch 46.1 GW. In an attempt to adhere to regulations laid by government and establish a environment friendly image, various companies in utility and industrial sectors are shifting towards adoption of clean energy, which is likely to result in a surge in solar panel installations as well as the demand for solar panel cleaning. This factor is expected to contribute towards the growth of the solar panel cleaning market in the years to follow.

Our Research Methodology

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
