Global Solar Panel Cleaning Market to Grow Significantly Over 2020-2026

June 05, 2020

As per the report titled ‘Solar Panel Cleaning Market By Technology, By Mode of Operation, By Application Industry Analysis Report, Application Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2020 - 2026’, available with Market Study Report LLC, global solar panel cleaning market is expected to exhibit strong growth trends through 2026.

Global solar panel cleaning market is driven by ongoing technological advancements and increasing number of solar power projects across the globe. Solar panels generate electricity by converting natural light coming from the sun. Although solar panels are self-sustaining and generally require low maintenance, their efficiency is subject to environmental effects like dust accumulation, humidity, and temperature, which is driving the demand for solar panel cleaning.

Based on the technology spectrum, electrostatic dry cleaning segment is expected to display significant growth over the forecast period. Electrostatic cleaning device are designed to eliminate dust from the surface area of solar panels. These devices involve high-power AC voltage to be fed into the parallel screen electrodes positioned on a solar panel, resulting in an electrostatic force between the particles closer to the electrodes. The electrostatic force results in reciprocating movement of particles, causing few particles to pass through the upper screen openings of the electrode and consequently fall off by descending along the slanted panel. Thus, adoption of electrostatic technology for cleaning is anticipated to increase the efficiency of mega solar power plants built in deserts, thereby stimulating the segment growth.  

In terms of the process, automatic robotic segment is expected to witness modest gains in the coming years, owning by growing inclination towards advanced solar cleaning technologies in mega farms. In this process, the robot is supplied with high pressure water by a diesel pump, which is utilized for moving and cleaning. The process is highly reliable and minimizes the need for power supply. A row of panels requires two successive round trips to be cleaned. When the cycle ends, the robot automatically positions itself onto the rolling support, allowing it to be positioned in front of the next row. Robotic cleaning generally requires two operators. Hence, automatic robots are witnessing an increased demand as they enhance solar panel cleaning process.  

Considering the regional outlook, solar panel cleaning market in Middle East & Africa is estimated to witness substantial growth due to initiation of large-scale solar projects and expansion of grid infrastructure.
