Global Offshore Wind Power Market Highlights:

Offering Higher Capacity, 5 MW and Above Segment to Witness Increased Adoption

In terms of capacity, the 3 MW to 5MW segments is the most popular among the market. The capacity is widely accepted by market players and is very cost effective. However, over the forecast period the 5 MW and above segment is likely to account for more than 50% of the market share. Owing to the preference shift towards floating type structure and deeper installation, the segments is likely to witness expansion. Besides this, the 3 MW and below segment is foreseen to decline over the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for high MW system.

The advancement in floating wind technology is predicted to open new avenues in the offshore wind market globally. This technology enables the building of wind turbines in deep waters, which leads to increased rotor diameters of offshore turbines, resulting in increased power production. Increasing awareness about renewable energy and huge investments in the offshore wind power project are a few factors anticipated to drive the global market. Additionally, introduction of advanced technology to smoothly implement offshore wind power system is a factor likely to fuel the demand in market.

The offshore wind farm market is developing rapidly and this trend is expected to persist in the future. With an ample wind resource and the rising adoption of wind energy technology, the offshore wind market is poised for growth. The offshore wind energy industry has shown remarkable endurance and is expected to remain a critical participant in the renewable energy sector for years to come. As the offshore wind power market continues to mature, the demand for offshore wind projects is expected to increase, driving the growth of the market.

Despite its potential, there are still a number of challenges that need to be addressed in order to further develop the offshore wind energy market. One of the main challenges is the high cost of building offshore wind farms, which is due to the challenging environmental conditions and the complex infrastructure required.
