Wave Energy Market Statics - 2027

The global wave energy market size was valued at $43.8 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $141.1 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 17.8% from 2020 to 2027. Wave energy is the energy generated from the up and down movement of ocean waves. The ocean waves are generated from wind energy. Further, wave energy converters are used to extract the energy from these ocean waves, which in turn is used to generate electricity with the help of turbine and generators. This sector is still in the development stage and thus, there is need to increase the investment and R & D in the upcoming years. Wave energy can be extracted with the help of technologies including oscillating body converters, oscillating water column and overtopping converters.

Rapid development in the renewable energy sector and rise in demand for electricity from the marine industry are the key factors that drive the growth of the market during the forecast period. However, high capital investment in installing wave energy power infrastructure are the key factors restraining the growth of the market in the upcoming years. On the contrary, increase in government initiatives and investments in the renewable energy sector is anticipated to create opportunity for the key players in the wave energy industry globally.
