Floating Solar Panel Market Value & Growth Rate:

The Global Floating Solar Panel Market size was valued at US$ 686.2 million in 2021 and is anticipated to grow at US$ 2,302.9 million and increasing at a CAGR of 28% during 2021 and 2026. 

Floating Solar Panel Market Scenario:

The rising attention towards the clean fuel power generation energy sources combined with an insufficient land area is likely to fuel the global floating panel market during the forecast period. Sometimes, floating solar is also known as photovoltaics. It is defined as the production of solar power installed on a structure that floats on a body of water. Therefore, these segments can be segmented into Floating photovoltaic (FPV). From the past few years, FPV technology has witnessed significant growth in renewable energy. According to a study, FPV comprises efficiency improvement technology that helps in placing solar panels over water. These are some of the primary characteristics of FPV, which further drives the global floating solar panel market growth during 2021-2026. 

Global Floating Solar Panel Market Drivers:

The shifting preferences for generating power from renewable resources include solar, and wind plays a crucial role in increasing the global floating solar panel market growth. Moreover, several government implementations to promote solar energy, massive demand for energy, and rising investments in renewable energy are the key factors responsible for the global floating solar panel market revenue. In addition, regulatory boards have decided to set up targets regarding clean energy worldwide that will help reduce pollution levels to some extent. The rapid depletion of fossil fuels and global warming have changed from conventional sources of energy to green energy sources of energy. In addition, the stringent rules by the government to decrease the usage of greenhouse gasses emissions will further boost the global floating solar panel market growth. Therefore, the use of renewable sources of power generation has increased due to the decrease in fossil fuel reserves will likely propel the market growth.

On the other hand, solar energy has become the fastest growing renewable source of energy. It is because it can be quickly installed and consists of a considerable amount of sunlight worldwide. Compared to conventional plants, the demand for floating solar panels keeps rising due to their primary advantages, including no land occupancy, water-saving and quality, cooling, installation and decommissioning, tracking, storage opportunity, and environmental control. The primary factor for floating solar panels is that they do not require ample land and are cost-efficient. In addition, their management is quite simple and easy. Furthermore, on implementing floating solar panels, water bodies emit a cooling effect which helps in improving the performance of solar photovoltaic panels. So, these are the significant features of floating solar panels which contribute to the growth of the global floating solar panel market.

Floating Solar Panel Market Restraints:

The high requirements for the racking system and high costs are the major drawbacks for the global floating solar panel market growth. The floating solar panel's purpose is to hold the solar panels for many years, almost 20-25 years. Therefore, it is a need for a racking system that has massive corrosion resistance, high load capacity, and an eternal life span. On the other hand, the in stallion of floating solar panels is quite expensive compared to standard solar panel installations. Furthermore, since it is a new solar power technology, it needs specialized solar power equipment and ample knowledge on solar power installation. Moreover, these are generally suitable for large spaces, including utility companies and community solar, not residential homes. These significant constraints slow down the global floating solar panel market growth in the upcoming years.

Recent Developments in the Floating Solar Panel Market:

  • Kyocera Corporation announced that it would start the operation of Japan's largest 13.77MW floating solar power plant. It will be constructed on the surface of the water bodies, mainly reservoir, which the waterworks bureau manages. 
  • Yingli Solar declares that it will supply the world's most giant floating PV plant, a 7.5MW power station in Japan. It further added that the project would be built on agricultural land. 
  • On 7th July 2021, Trina Solar Limited installed a 60MW floating solar park in Singapore. It is declared as one of the most extensive panels in Asia.

Floating Solar Panel Market Segmentation:

By Type:

  • Stationary
  • Solar tracking

Based on type, the stationary type held the most prominent global floating solar panel market share. This is because stationary floating solar panels are more cost-efficient than solar tracking panels. Moreover, these comprise a more negligible effect of water currents. As a result, the price of constructing a stationary floating solar panel is lower if there is any cause of the problem or damage. These are the characteristics of stationary floating solar panels, which further dominate the global floating solar panel market in the next six years.

By Location:

  • Onshore
  • Offshore

Onshore location plays a dominant role in the global floating solar panel market and sustains its dominance in the upcoming years. However, the massive amount of tides and forceful water current may cause problems or damage to the solar panels and their floating structure. Moreover, the high costs of maintenance and construction of seawater plants may further lead the onshore category to witness significant growth in the market.  

By Technology:

  • Photovoltaics (PV)
  • Concentrated Solar power (CSP) 

Photovoltaic technology is anticipated to have the highest global floating solar panel market share due to its high sustainability for deployment in floating solar panels. On the other hand, CSP is at a starting stage and experience a lower adoption in the global floating solar panel market.

Global Floating Solar Panel Market Regional Analysis: 

The Global Floating Solar Panel Market Report includes the segmentation of Regions:

  • Asia Pacific dominates the global floating solar panel market and is yet to maintain this trend in the near future. This is due to its increasing growth and government initiatives to promote solar panels and the growing demand for low-cost energy. 

  • North America attributes to register highest CAGR owing to the increasing growth rate and escalating demand for green power and solar investment tax credit among the population in the U.S. 

  • Europe region is also anticipated to have the maximum global floating solar panel market CAGR. It is due to the strict initiatives by the government to limit greenhouse gases. 

  • Middle East and Africa 

  • Latin America

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Floating Solar Panel Market:

The COVID-19 outbreak started in early 2020, and it is still spreading the disease among the population across the globe. Many of the people suffered from COVID, and some survived, and some lost their lives. This led the global floating solar panel market to experience a negative phase during the corona crisis. Due to this pandemic, manufacturers and producers were facing a shortage of material and also the workforce. Moreover, the delay in executing the project due to supply chain disruptions will likely hinder the global floating solar panel market growth.
