Market Dynamics

Offshore Wind Energy Market growth is expected to gain high momentum during the forecast period due to increasing greenhouse emissions, environmental degradation, and climate change. Wind energy is generated by the use of wind, which rotates the turbine and generates mechanical energy, which is then converted into mechanical energy. High wind speeds are generated at sea and hence, the energy generated is higher as compared to onshore wind farms. However, installation and maintenance of offshore wind farms are costly and complex as compared to onshore wind farms.

Renewable energy sources and continuing to gain attention throughout the globe due to the non-sustainable nature of conventional fossil fuel, emission of greenhouse gases, and related environmental hazards. This is leading to growth in the offshore wind energy market.

Europe is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, as most countries in Europe and the European Union are aiming to reduce greenhouse emissions by decreasing its dependence on fossil fuels.

Key Developments:

  • In June of 2018, the race bank offshore wind farm was opened in the U.K and is the 5th largest wind farm on the planet.
  • China’s wind energy market has grown immensely in the past years due to strong government support and investments. China’s capacity of offshore wind energy was more than 1.6 GW as of 2016. China also plans on increasing its capacity by 13 GW till 2026.
  • Announcement for construction of the Hornsea Project One in Denmark, which is designed to be the largest off shore wind farm in Europe and is expected to be operational by 2020.
  • On October 9th 2017, Microsoft announced that they have signed a contract to use electricity from the wind farms of General Electrics to power their cloud data centres in Ireland

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Increasing greenhouse emissions, environmental degradation, and climate change
  • Stringent government regulations and growing environmental awareness
  • High electricity generation per amount of capacity installed
