Floating Wind Power Market Size (2022 - 2027):

The Global Floating Wind Power Market size was valued at US$ 24.2 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach US$ 30.4 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 15.5% from 2022 to 2027.

The growing call for electricity coupled with the rapid increase in the emission levels associated with traditional power plants will drive market expansion. The continued focus on adopting renewable energy sources, including wind, geothermal, solar and waste-to-energy, has resulted in the expansion of the offshore wind market. The installation of offshore wind energy technologies is gaining acceptance worldwide due to its high-power generation capacity. Low noise levels, the absence of land acquisition costs, and a large supply of wind resources compared to onshore wind projects are just some of the important factors fueling market call. Wind power uses the air flow through turbines to create a clean energy source around the world. Wind energy converts kinetic energy into mechanical energy through turbines. A wind turbine converts wind energy into electricity using the aerodynamic force created by the rotor blades of the generator. Aerodynamic force spins the generator to create electricity. The market call for wind power has escalated due to the rising levels of pollution in the environment and the health problems of people. Wind power is generally employed in wind pumps, wind battery chargers, wind power generators, etc.

Market Trends:

Offshore wind technologies have achieved significant traction under a high CUF and favorable regulatory policies that complement the expansion of the global floating wind power market. Worldwide lawmakers are stepping up their efforts to successfully meet emission reduction targets under the Paris Agreement. Governments and respective market players are actively investing in clean energy sources. This has fuelled the expansion of the industry as the call for installation of large capacity offshore wind projects is predicted to see a significant boost in the coming years.

Market Drivers:

Escalated consumption of wind energy to gain ground in the global floating wind power market. The adoption of renewable energy is supported by worldwide clean energy initiatives and government incentives and subsidies, which motivate the use of this form of energy. Today, in the face of growing concern about pollution, countries are forced to adopt renewable energy sources to control carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Wind and solar are the two main renewable energy sources that are being employed at an accelerated rate. The creation of onshore wind farms around the world has proven to be a success, opening new doors of opportunity for offshore wind farms. The latter is capable of harnessing a large amount of wind energy that would otherwise go to waste. These factors are driving the expansion of the floating wind power market. The other main factors supporting growth in the floating wind energy market are the exponential investments made for the development of sustainable energy. The trend of depletion of petroleum products has raised concerns about meeting the energy needs of a population that is growing at a healthy rate around the world. This has forced government agencies to guarantee secondary energy sources, which is why significant research and development activities are carried out. Furthermore, floating wind power is the untapped energy source that offers immense opportunities around the world.

Market Restraints:

However, the turbines could cause noise and cosmetic disturbances that would hamper market expansion.

Market Opportunities:

Emerging developers of floating wind technologies would present an opportunity for the worldwide wind energy market. This would help predict weather conditions, lightning warnings, and tidal information.

Market Challenges:

Floating wind turbine installations represent a major challenge for the worldwide floating wind power market. The main challenges are the installation time and cost of the boat, the deep water mooring and the installation of electrical cables and many more.

North America has the largest share of the global floating wind power market. This is due to the higher production of the national system and lower component costs maintain business outlook. The size of the US market is predicted to reach 7 GW of annual installation by 2026. According to the US Department of Energy, in 2021, the installation of these units escalated by 11%, establishing more than 20% of capacity of newly added production throughout the area. The market share in Europe is predicted to grow by more than 6% thanks to energy security initiatives, decarbonization reforms and favorable directives. The Renewable Energy Directive introduced by the European Union defines the policy for the production and promotion of sustainable energy sources in the region. This directive sets targets for 20% sustainable energy integration in the worldwide energy scenario, and wind energy will account for over 200 GW of installed capacity by 2021. Currently, the UK has the highest revenue from the floating wind power market. This expansion is attributable to the country's green energy goal. By the end of 2030, it aims to reach around 40 GW of offshore wind capacity. It should attract a large number of investors. In addition, the country is home to the largest number of floating offshore wind farms (OWF) in the world. Although most of them are currently under construction, they are predicted to be operational from 2021.

Sweden, the United States, France and Japan are some of the other countries that are predicted to follow in the footsteps of the United Kingdom. These countries have a large number of OWFs installed. Finally, South Korea, Spain and Germany will become the most influential players in the coming years due to the rising number of planned floating wind turbine installations.
