Floating Wind Power Market Value And Growth Analysis (2021-2026):

The global floating wind Power market exceeded USD 24.5 billion in 2021 and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of more than 15% between 2021 and 2026.

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.

Floating Wind Power 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.

Recent Developments in the Floating Wind Power Market Industry:

  • The world's largest floating wind turbine will soon be launched in Portugal. 20 kilometers off the coast of Viana do Castello, Portugal, it is planned to host the world's largest floating wind turbine, an ABS-rated 8.4 megawatt (MW) offshore wind turbine. It is the first large-scale floating wind farm in continental Europe. One belief is that this renewable facility ushers in the golden age of wind power, especially offshore wind.
  • Vestas, accompany operating from Denmark published aboutits launch of a new turbine variant that is ideal for low and ultra-low wind project conditions in India. It added that the turbine would be manufactured and purchased locally in the country.

Floating Wind Power 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.

Floating Wind Power Market Restraints:

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

Opportunities in the Floating Wind Power Market:

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.

Challenges in the Floating Wind Power Market:

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.
