Wind Energy Market 2
Wind Energy Market 2


Global Wind Energy Market is likely to showcase significant growth rate of around 7% during the forecast period (2021-2027). With increasing electricity demand, wind energy is growing at an influential rate owing to its high efficiency and declining cost component. In addition to this as compared to other renewable power sources it has low maintenance cost. Further, reaching net zero will require bold actions by a large number of sectors, wind power is placed to be one of the cornerstones of green recovery to play an important role in accelerating the global green energy transition.

Green Wind Energy Council (GWEC) expects that over 469 GW of new onshore and offshore wind capacity will be added in the next five years that is until 2025. Explosive growth of wind turbine installations in China, Asia Pacific continues to take the lead in global wind power development with its share of the global market increasing by 8.5% in 2020.

Other factor driving the growth of the wind energy market globally is high focus of the companies worldwide to make much more technologically enabled & cost-efficient turbines.

Nordex SE, Suzlon Energy Ltd, Ørsted A/S, GE Renewable Energy, ABB Ltd etc. are some of the prominent players operating in the Global Wind Energy Market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate countries with more innovative Wind Energy applications.


Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst component, support structure category held considerable market share”

On basis of component, wind energy market is divided into turbine, support structure, electrical infrastructure, and others. Support structure is the backbone of wind turbine. The blades and nacelle are mounted on top of a tower. These figures may be adjusted as turbine designs adapted, hub heights increase, blades become longer and lighter and components become more resilient or are replaced by more easily recyclable materials.

“Amongst application, offshore category is likely to showcase significant growth during the forecast period”

Based on application, the market is bifurcated into onshore and offshore wind energy. Offshore wind turbines are much larger in size (in the range of 5 to 10 MW per turbine) as against 2-3 MW of an onshore wind turbine. While the cost per MW for offshore turbines is higher because of stronger structures and foundations needed in marine environment, the desirable tariffs can be achieved on account of higher efficiencies of these turbines after development of the eco system.

“Asia Pacific represents as the largest market in the Global Wind Energy Market.”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of wind energy, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (United States, Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, France, Spain, United Kingdom, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, and Rest of APAC), and Rest of World. Currently, Asia Pacific held lucrative market share owing to rapid installation of wind energy in China.
