Wind Energy Market Overview - 2027

Global Wind Energy Market size was valued at $62.1 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $127.2 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 9.3% from 2020 to 2027. This type of renewable energy is used to generate electric energy from kinetic energy. Wind turbine converts the wind power into mechanical energy and this mechanical energy is further converted into electrical energy through generator. Wind energy can be generated at offshore and onshore. Onshore wind energy is associated with onshore turbines that are located on land, whereas offshore wind turbines are found in ocean or sea. However, due to consistent wind flow, offshore wind turbine is more efficient than onshore wind turbines.

Significant surge in demand for renewable power sources is expected to drive the wind energy market growth. Governments across the globe are promoting sustainable energy sources, which can reduce carbon emission, unlike conventional power sources. Furthermore, the offshore wind turbine technology removes the constraint of water depth, which aids in selecting the best site possible for power generation. For instance, in June 2017, Statoil, a Norwegian energy company invested $268 million for its Hywind turbine project. The project involved installation of floating wind turbines at 78 meter sea depth in north-east coast of Scotland. Additionally, the efficiency of wind power is higher than that of conventional fossil energy sources (coal, natural, and oil). The maximum efficiency of wind turbine can be up to 59%, whereas for fossil fuel it is 35-45%.

However, the initial installation cost of offshore wind turbines with multiple mooring lines and anchors can be expensive. In addition, during heavy storms or hurricanes, the wind turbines may face severe damage. Nonetheless, technological advancements in wind turbine structure, such as “Twisted Jacket” foundation with fewer nodes and components may be permanent solution against heavy storm. The inward battered guide structure provides robust and secure structure, and also reduces installation cost. Such new developments will create further opportunities in the wind energy market.

Global Wind Energy Market, By Type

Offshore wind energy accounted for highest market growth during 2020-2027. This is attributed to higher capacity factor than that of onshore wind turbines. Offshore wind turbine has high-capacity factor, due to consistent wind flow at sea shore. For instance, the capacity factor for offshore wind turbine is 0.5-0.7, whereas the onshore wind turbine has capacity factor of around 0.25-0.3.

Offshore Wind Energy is projected as the most lucrative segment

Global Wind Energy Market, By End-user

The industrial end-user accounted for significant revenue share in 2019, owing to increase in demand for renewable energy sources. Wind power has significant demand in rural and isolated areas where grid power is not available. However, the price and demand of wind energy is highly volatile, due to its high dependency on government incentive schemes.

Industrial segment is projected as the most lucrative segment

COVID-19 scenario analysis

  • The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted the wind turbine manufacturing in countries such as China and Germany. For instance, in 2020, Germany's Nordex SE reported negative EBITDA of $86.5 million down from positive EBITDA of $21 million in previous financial year (2019).
  • Additionally, limited availability of spares and manpower for maintenance is a major problem affecting the market growth. During high wind season, planned maintenance became a major issue for industry players, owing to reduced labor force and social distancing norms.
  • Furthermore, project delays and cancellation of orders further affected the key markets for both blade production and wind turbine installations. For instance, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA accounted for a net loss of $577 million during its fiscal third quarter in 2020.
  • However, shifting trend toward domestic supply chain may reduce the reliance on foreign imports encouraging domestic production of wind turbines. Furthermore, implementation of digitization will aid in remote monitoring for project execution; thus, limiting the labor force as much as possible.
