Analyst Review

Offshore wind energy involves construction of wind farms off the coasts, generally on the continental shelf to harvest the wind energy for electricity generation. Higher wind speeds are available offshore as compared to on land, which contribute to relatively higher supply of electricity. Offshore wind power is expected to help in the reduction of energy imports, air pollution, and greenhouse gases, and provide employment and local business opportunities.

Rise in power consumption, owing to rapid industrialization, and increase in focus to derive energy through renewable sources are anticipated to drive the global offshore wind energy market. Moreover, increase in investments by governments, especially in the developing countries, such as China and India, rapid urbanization, and rise in consumer spending capabilities drive the global market growth.

The European offshore wind power market offers numerous opportunities for the manufacturers, owing to introduction and adoption of enhanced technologies in Germany, UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Spain and increase in number of offshore wind energy service providers. In addition, increase in demand for efficient and cost-effective techniques of electricity generation and rise in disposable income in developing economies, such as Poland, Russia, and Denmark, drive the European market. Asia-Pacific is estimated to account for the second highest market share, followed by North America.
