Global Floating Solar Panels Market is estimated to reach $1,186 million by 2024; growing at a CAGR of 64.7% from 2016 to 2024. The continual depletion of fossil fuels, increasing demand for energy, and electricity crisis in several regions have led the focus to renewable energy sources. A floating solar panel is an arrangement of photovoltaic panels that floats on water bodies. This new concept is a combination of PV plant technology and floating technology. Moreover, it will be also a revolutionary step to solve the perennial problem of land. These panels increase the effort to reduce greenhouse gases, as they are considered as clean energy and efficient source of electricity.

The global floating solar panels market is driven by factors such as shortage of land, growing initiatives of mega projects by government, falling cost of panels, and its high production capacity. Though, high initial cost would hamper the growth of the market. Besides, increasing research and development need for high stability photovoltaic devices, and untapped markets would provide opportunities for the market in years to come.

The global floating solar panels market is bifurcated as product type, location, and geography. Product type is segmented into solar-tracking floating solar panels, and stationary floating solar panels. Location is categorized as on-shore floating solar panels, and off-shore floating solar panels.
