Airborne Wind Turbine Market Size (2022-2027):

The Global Airborne Wind Turbine Market Size is to reach US$ 228.20 million by 2027, growing at CAGR of around 12.5% during the forecast period 2022 to 2027.

An airborne wind turbine is a design idea for a wind turbine with a rotor held in the air without a tower, thus benefiting from a more mechanical and aerodynamic outlook, higher wind speed and persistence at high altitude, without going through the cost of tower construction, or the need for slip rings or yaw mechanism. An airborne wind turbine is a new concept in which the rotor of a wind turbine is suspended in the air without the support of a tower. The unique design concept of the airborne wind turbine offers both aerodynamic and mechanical advantages. While these turbines reduce the need for slip rings and reduce the expense of tower construction and yaw mechanisms, they provide high speed and greater efficiency at higher altitudes. Wind turbines are predicted to account for 12% of the world's total electricity production by 2020. In the next few years, the worldwide airborne wind turbine market is predicted to register solid expansion due to the high efficiency of the wind turbines in the air.

Market Trends:

Various technologies have been introduced to improve the way wind energy is harnessed; the latest in this endeavor are airborne wind turbines. An airborne wind turbine, as its name suggests, is a new design concept in which the wind turbine rotor is suspended in the air without the support of a tower, taking advantage of both mechanical and aerodynamic advantages. It also helps reduce the expense of tower construction and yaw mechanisms or the need for slip rings. This new design is predicted to achieve high speed and greater efficiency at higher altitudes.

Market Drivers:

The growing call for clean and sustainable energy, fluctuating fuel prices derived from non-renewable resources, and favorable government regulations are playing an important role in the expansion of the global airborne wind turbine market. Airborne wind turbines do not require expensive infrastructures such as electrical grids and power plants, and this factor has further driven the installation of airborne wind turbines around the world. One of the main factors responsible for this market expansion is the increase in R&D for wind turbines. Fluctuating prices for fuel derived from non-renewable sources, favorable government regulations, escalating call for energy, and large-scale production are the main factors driving the market for airborne wind turbines. More importantly, no expensive infrastructure, such as power plants or power grids, is required for the installation of an airborne wind turbine. These factors have been crucial for the installation of wind turbines around the world.

Market Restraints:

Airborne wind turbines also have certain drawbacks. Harnessing wind power at high altitudes increases the risk of unplanned collisions, and therefore automated command steering is needed for airborne wind turbines for added safety. Challenges include safely suspending and maintaining turbines hundreds of meters above the ground during high winds and storms, transferring collected and/or generated energy to the ground, and interference with aviation. Extensive research is underway to design rugged and reliable airborne wind turbines.

Market Opportunities:

Escalating electricity consumption, especially in emerging economies such as India, China, Brazil and Russia, has driven call for alternative energy sources. As the wind is absolutely free, the authorities focus mainly on the use of energy derived from the wind. Additionally, wind power technologies generally require little maintenance and bypass electricity is also very cheap, once the cost of construction and installation of the turbines is recouped. The United States, India, Germany, China, and Spain are among the top countries involved in large-scale wind power generation. Therefore, companies operating in the airborne wind turbine market are predicted to find lucrative opportunities in the projection period.

Market Challenges:

However, like any other technology, wind turbines also have certain drawbacks. Harnessing wind power at high altitudes has its own challenges, including unplanned collisions, and therefore requires automated piloting for safety. However, with escalating investments in R&D, efforts are being made to design more reliable and robust airborne turbines.

The United States, India, Spain, China, and Germany are among the key countries involved in large-scale wind power generation, and therefore the air turbine market is predicted to grow.

Impact of COVID-19 on Airborne Wind Turbine Market:

The coronavirus pandemic has spread at a rate that far exceeds initial expectations, has spread more geographically, and has now become a worldwide pandemic. It is not known how long the situation will last, but there is no doubt that it will have a major impact on Japan's wind industry and projects. To prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Japan, the government extended its declaration of a state of emergency until the end of May and asked people to refrain from any movement to prevent self-harm - say "3 C" - closed, crowded and in close contact - with the aim of reducing contact with others by 70 to 80%. Refraining from any movement, which is strongly encouraged by central and local governments, recommends that people stay, but actually also simultaneously limits the movement of goods (logistics) due to the canceling of almost all the flights, for instance, the effect of the restriction. In most cases, these restrictions will cause delays. Delays in the development, construction, and operation of wind power plants increase costs and reduce profitability, so COVID-19 could have a major impact on the wind industry.
