The global offshore wind energy market reached a value of US$ 9.14 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 24.71 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 16.60% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Offshore wind energy relies on wind turbines located in ocean waters to generate electricity, which is transmitted via cables to the mainland grid. It is a cost-effective, abundant, and clean source of energy. It can provide reliable and affordable renewable power near coastal energy load centers wherein there is a scarcity of sites for large-scale renewable energy development. It helps reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, increase energy security and diversity, create jobs, and promote sustainable development. At present, there is a rise in the adoption of renewable sources of energy production and consumption across the globe, which is catalyzing the demand for offshore wind energy.
There is presently a considerable increase in the number of offshore wind farms worldwide. This, in confluence with the burgeoning energy sector, represents one of the key factors impelling the growth of the market. Moreover, onshore wind energy is nowadays near the development limit in several countries on account of the visual and noise impact constraints that make it increasingly challenging to find appropriate sites. Besides this, physical blockages from buildings and landscapes like hills or mountains can also cause inconsistencies in production, and consequently, onshore wind cannot fails in generating energy year-round. However, recent developments in offshore wind energy are reducing visual impacts, minimizing turbulence, and lowering noise constraints. It is also more productive than land-based wind energy due to higher and more consistent wind speeds, which is impelling the market growth. Furthermore, the construction of offshore wind turbine plants is more feasible as large offshore turbines can be transported using barges or ships. This, coupled with increasing investments in upcoming offshore wind power projects by governing authorities, is driving the market.
