Drivers & Restraints-

Government Efforts to Control Carbon Footprint Will Bode Well for Market

The increasing demand for renewable energy is a significant factor in promoting offshore wind power market growth. This, coupled with the currently trending shift towards the installation of wind shores in water deeper than 30 m will add impetus to the market. Additionally, the efforts taken by various governments to control carbon footprint will boost the market in the coming years.

On the flip side, the high cost of capital and logistics, accompanied by high maintenance costs may pose a major hindrance to the market in the coming years. This, coupled with the growth of the distributed energy resources may hamper the market growth in the near future.

Nevertheless, the increasing focus on water conservation and a rise in the process of crude oil and other expensive energy sources have propelled people to opt for environment-friendly energy sources, thereby creating lucrative growth opportunities to the market for offshore wind power in the coming years.


Upto 30 M Water Depth Section to Draw Maximum Share Owing to its Cost-effective Benefits

Based on segmentation by water depth, the shallow water, i.e. up to 30 m segment is holding maximum share on account of its smooth operations and reduction in the overall capital expenditure. This, coupled with a rise in the investments in floating offshore wind energy projects for deepwater is also helping to increase the demand for up to 30 m segment.

Regional Analysis-

The U.K. Earned Major Share, soon to be Overpowered by China in Coming Years

Currently, the United Kingdom held the maximum offshore wind power market share with Germany and China in the second and the third position, respectively. However, China is likely to emerge as the dominant nation followed by the U.K., Germany, France, and Spain in descending order. This is owing to the installation of more than 40% of wind shore power stations in the nation in the year 2018, coupled with the increasing number of new construction projects. The other countries holding significance in the market for offshore wind energy include South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, the United States, and Vietnam.

Competitive Landscape-

Players Focusing on New Installation Projects to Earn Prominent Share in Market

The global market for offshore wind power is highly fragmented on account of the presence of many players. They are all focusing on sufficing to the ever-increasing demand for energy by installing more wind power stations on waterbodies.
