Floating Wind Power Market to Exhibit 56.5% CAGR from 2022 to 2029; Vestas Won Offshore Order to Use Industry-First Floating Installation Method

July 26, 2022 | Energy & Power

The global floating wind power market size is anticipated to surge from USD 0.68 billion in 2022 to USD 15.64 billion by 2029. The rising adoption of renewables and soaring energy demand will play an instrumental role in encouraging leading companies to boost their investments. An uptick in the floating wind installation, along with the commercial expansion of the equipment, will augur well for the industry outlook.

According to the latest research report by Fortune Business Insights™ titled, “Floating Wind Power Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Water Depth (Shallow Water, Transitional Water, and Deep Water), By Turbine Capacity (Up to 3 MW, 3 MW - 5 MW, and Above 5 MW), and Regional Forecast, 2022 – 2029,” the market stood at USD 0.29 billion in 2021. It is expected to witness 56.5% CAGR during the assessment period.

COVID-19-Induced Dip in Electricity Demand Dented Growth Prospect

The pervasive COVID-19 pandemic had a telling impact on the global market, with electricity demand witnessing a notable plunge. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), 5% reduction in electricity demand was observed in 2020 due to the coronavirus. The pandemic also led to the influence on the electricity distribution network across emerging economies. Besides, governments introduced robust policies and upped investments in renewable energy to overcome challenges stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hitachi ABB Power Grids launched New Transformer for Floating to Resist Demanding Conditions

Well-established and new players are boosting their strategies to propel the floating wind power market growth. They are likely to emphasize organic and inorganic strategies to tap into markets and boost return on investments. To illustrate, in June 2021, Hitachi ABB Power Grids introduced a portfolio of transformer products to resist demanding conditions on floating structures and surmount challenging offshore environments. Meanwhile, in January 2020, Siemens Gamesa announced the acquisition of Onshore European service assets and Intellectual Property (IP) of Senvion. Prevailing trends are expected to play an invaluable role in propelling industry growth.
