This study intends to analyse diverse aspects of the global wind power market. The insights offered in this report are expected to aid in market growth examination over the forecast timeline.

Market Analysis in Brief

The global wind power market has been experiencing significant growth in recent years, driven by increasing demand for renewable energy sources and government initiatives to reduce carbon emissions. The Asia Pacific region is expected to be the largest market for wind power, followed by Europe, and North America. Offshore wind power is also expected to gain traction, with several large-scale projects currently under development. However, challenges such as high upfront costs and intermittency issues still exist, and technological advancements and supportive policies will be crucial in driving further growth in the industry. In short, the global wind power industry presents significant opportunities for investors and stakeholders looking to capitalize on the growing demand for clean energy.

Key Report Findings

  • The global wind power market was valued at over US$112 Bn in 2021
  • Global wind power capacity reached 743 GW by the end of 2020
  • Offshore wind power capacity is expected to grow from 34 GW in 2020 to about 234 GW by 2030
  • Asia Pacific to index the highest CAGR over the forecast period

Growth Drivers

Higher Adoption of Sustainable Energy, and Favorable Governmental Initiatives

In recent years, a growing number of nations have gradually begun to make a conscious effort to lower their respective carbon emission levels. This can primarily be attributed to the ever-looming detrimental impacts of climate change, which only seem to be becoming more evident each passing year. As such, the adoption of sustainable sources of energy has taken greater precedence. Wind power is a major renewable energy contributor in various parts of the world. For instance, a report found that wind power generation increased by about 17% in 2022, enough to power all of the United Kingdom.

Fairfield Market Research found that the global wind power market was valued at about US$99 Bn in 2022, and this industry is expected to expand at a considerable CAGR over the forecast period. Furthermore, respective governments are now implementing favourable policies and regulatory frameworks that promote the use of renewable energy resources of energy as well as lower the overall cost of wind energy. This is expected to promote further adoption and foster innovation to better existing infrastructure. Factors such as this are expected to have a profound influence on the growth trajectory of the global wind power market in the coming years.

Technological Advancements, and Increasing Global Investments

As a means of making wind power generation more efficient and cost-effective, various industry players are engaged in developing advancements in wind turbine technology, thus enabling wind energy to be more competitive with traditional fossil fuel energy solutions. Additionally, a recent study by Fairfield Market Research has indicated that a growing number of private-public entities are now increasing their investments to improve current energy generation and distribution processes with the aim of fostering growth in the global wind power market.

For example, TotalEnergies SE, an energy giant, has entered into an agreement with SSE Renewables to acquire a 51% stake in its Seagreen-1 offshore wind farm. In doing so, TotalEnergies SE is predicted to invest over US$70 Mn in the project. It is expected that offshore wind is slated to have created about US$166 Bn in new investments, and in turn, generated over US$1.7 Bn in new tax revenues in 2022. Factors such as these are expected to further augment the global wind power market.

Growth Challenges

Intermittency and Infrastructural Limitations

Owing to the sporadic nature of wind power is considered to be an intermittent energy source, as in, it isn’t always available when needed. This could limit its usefulness as a primary source of energy and make it difficult to integrate wind power into the grid. Moreover, for wind power to function successfully, a significant amount of infrastructure such as power lines and substations is necessary, which in turn could prove to be a major deterrent. As this industry is subject to complex regulations, it can be arduous task to secure permits and/or approvals to build new wind projects. These elements could hinder the progression of the global wind power market.

Growth Opportunities Across Regions

Asia Pacific to Gain Traction

While North America, and Europe are established, mature markets for wind power, the Asia Pacific is expected to index a significant rate of growth over the forecast timeline. This can be attributed to the significant increase in the number of wind power installations that are expected to be developed soon. China, Japan, and India are major markets, while Australia, Thailand, and Vietnam are emerging markets in this region. The largest market for wind power is China, with a capacity of 281 GW followed by the United States (122 GW), and Germany (62 GW). Europe has the highest penetration of wind power in electricity generation, with approximately 15.4% of its electricity coming from wind in 2020.

Key Market Players – Wind Power Market Landscape

Some key companies in the global wind power market include GE Wind, Vestas, Siemens Wind Power, Suzlon Group, Goldwind, United Power, Acciona, Nordex SE, Sinovel Wind Group, EDF Renewable Energy, ReGen Powertech, Vensys Energy, ABB Limited, NextEra Energy Inc., Northland Power Inc., and DONG Energy, to name a few. To gain a competitive edge, various established industry players are now more focused on new product launches, partnerships, collaborations, acquisitions, and alliances.

Recent Notable Developments

  • In September 2022, Vattenfall AB, after exercising its right of entry, was granted permission to the N-7.2 wind power project off the coast of Germany’s North Sea
  • In September 2022, Danish firm Vestas announced that it was launching the tallest onshore wind turbine tower with a hub height measuring 199 meters. The tower has been designed to be used with Vestas’ V172-7.2 MW turbine
  • In May 2021, Siemens Gamesa was confirmed as a preferred supplier for the complete 1,044 MW Hai Long offshore wind projects in Taiwan

Our Research Methodology

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
