offshore wind

Offshore Wind Market report categorizes global market by Location (Deep-water (depth >60 m), Transitional Water (depth 30-60 m), and Shallow water (depth < 30 m)), by Component (Substructure, Turbine, Electrical Infrastructure, and Others), and Geo
Offshore Wind Market - Insights, Size, Share, Opportunity
Analysis, and Industry Forecast till 2025
Offshore wind provides the electrical energy on the continental shelf to harvest the wind
energy. Wind speed is generally stronger and steady at the offshores than on the land.
Offshore wind turbines are also located near to coastal areas eliminating the need for new
overland transmission lines. Slight increase in speed of wind can generate a significantly
greater amount of electricity, as the potential energy of wind is directly proportional to the
cube of wind speed. For instance, the turbine at a site with average wind speed 16 miles per
hour (mph) would produce more than around 50% electricity than 14 mph average speed of
the same turbine.

Key factors influencing growth in offshore wind market are high investments in renewable
sources of energy and favorable government policies. For instance, the National Ocean
Industries Association was U.S’s first offshore wind farm in 2017. Moreover, increasing
concern toward the non-renewable source of energy such as fossil fuel, awareness for their
harmful effects of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, and rising demand for electricity
will help in increasing the growth of offshore wind market.
In 2016, Europe was the leading region in the offshore wind market with a market share of
56.99% and is expected to reach US$ 39.39 billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 12.9%. The
main reason for the expansion of offshore wind market in Europe is owing to its favorable
weather for the offshore wind market. According to Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC),
2016, out of all the offshore wind installations, around 88% were located in costal waters of
10 European economies and remaining installations (around 12%) was located in China,
Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and the U.S.
According to Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, roughly 50% population in the U.S lives
near coastal areas. Also in coastal areas, land-based renewable sources are limited and energy
cost and demand are high. Offshore wind energy has potential to supply large quantity of
renewable energy to the U.S coastal cities such as Los Angeles, New York City, and Boston.
Among the three location by the depth of offshore wind turbines, shallow water offshore
wind turbines dominated the market, due to cost effectiveness and easy maintenance. Due to
favorable weather conditions in Europe, shallow water wind turbines are majorly installed in
the region. On the basis of components, turbines components are the major contributor to the
growth of offshore wind market. Different components of turbines such as, tower, rotator,
blade, and nacelle have the highest share of the capital cost. Larger the turbine, more energy
it produces when it rotates.
Europe led the offshore wind market, which is expected to lead the market and valued at US$
13.27 billion in 2016. The region is projected to witness a CAGR of 12.9% in terms of
revenue during the forecast period 2017 - 2025.
