Our research report has extensively covered external factors influencing the parent market growth potential in the coming years, which will determine the levels of growth of the forecast year.

The market is extremely competitive with all sizes of businesses, including large, medium, and small-sized companies vying to monopolize the market. The tremendous development in various fields such as product innovations and new product launches by manufacturers operating in the market will drive the growth further.

Key Offshore Wind Turbine Market Driver

  • The decline in LCOE for wind power generation is one of the major drivers impacting the offshore wind turbine market growth. 
  • Technological advances such as larger swept areas and higher hub height, along with the decline in the total installation costs, have encouraged the growth of wind power worldwide.
  • The fall in wind turbine cost, low operation and maintenance cost, low cost of financing, and rising turbine supplies are contributing to the decline in the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE).
  • The UK is a pioneer in wind power generation, where the cost of producing electricity from onshore wind turbines has declined dramatically due to innovative designs; the cost of producing electricity using wind energy in the country is now cheaper than that using fossil fuels. A decline in LCOE in wind power generation is expected to boost wind turbine installation worldwide, thereby propelling the global offshore wind turbine market.

Key Offshore Wind Turbine Market Trend

  • R&D in direct drive generators is one of the major trends influencing the offshore wind turbine market growth. In a typical onshore wind turbine, a low rotational speed of around 14 rpm is converted into a high rotational speed of 560-1,500 rpm. However, the wind turbine industry is currently experimenting with direct drive generators.
  • Direct train technology offers various advantages when compared with conventional turbines; for example, direct-drive generators will eliminate the need for a gearbox, and thus the turbine will involve fewer moving parts than geared drive trains. In the absence of gearboxes, direct-drive wind turbines run with the help of a rotor and a generator that rotate as an integrated unit.
  • With no mechanism to step up the rotational speed, the size of the generator increases considerably. Moreover, with no gearbox present, direct drive wind turbines are lighter in weight.
  • Many companies such as Siemens and GE are already experimenting with direct drive turbines, especially in offshore wind farms. As they require low maintenance, these systems are considered the future of offshore wind turbines. During the forecast period, these turbines are expected to undergo more R&D, which will also be influenced by the expected increase in offshore wind capacity.

Key Offshore Wind Turbine Market Challenge

  • The high failure rate of wind turbine components is one of the major challenges impeding the offshore wind turbine market growth. 
  • The reliability of turbines is a prerequisite for the actual generation of power from wind energy. Any catastrophe of components will negatively distress the functioning of the entire system.
  • A wind turbine is manufactured by integrating various components and technologies, ranging from hydraulics, aeronautics, automation, and others. Due to wind power's intermittency, these generators must endure recurrent load variations and mechanical stress, which can eventually lead to their breakdown.
  • The high failure rate of wind turbines in offshore and onshore wind farms is leading to replacement and servicing costs.
  • Offshore wind turbines incur more costs when compared with onshore wind turbines as replacement and servicing costs are higher in offshore wind turbines. Owing to high costs, offshore wind turbine installation is expected to decrease further in the future. This poses a major challenge to the offshore wind turbine industry.

Which are the Key Regions for Offshore Wind Turbine Market?

Offshore Wind Turbine Market Share by Geography

53% of the market’s growth will originate from APAC during the forecast period. China is the key market for offshore wind turbines in APAC. Market growth in this region will be faster than the growth of the market in other regions.

The energy demand in APAC is rising because of the growing population and enhanced standard of living in the region. This has led to an increase in focus on renewable energy to increase power generation. China and India are anticipated to account for much of the wind energy installations in the region.For instance, in India, the government has plans to add approximately 10 GW of wind power capacity every year, at least for the next five years. However, India is also conducting assessments for the possibility of developing offshore wind farms over the next couple of years. China also has plans to increase its wind power capacity to 200 GW by 2020 and is targeting 30 GW of offshore wind installed capacity by 2020. Japan is exhibiting potential for wind power, driven by the expansion plans of wind companies such as Eurus and Hitachi. Initiatives taken by many countries in the region and the pace of their execution indicate an increased readiness to replace fossil fuels with renewables. Governments of these countries are promoting the large-scale installation of renewables to address the issue of environmental degradation and pollution caused by burning fossil fuels.

The offshore wind turbine market share growth in the monopolies segment will be significant during the forecast period. The offshore wind turbine market is dominated by the monopiles substructure segment, mainly owing to its stability and higher number of lower-depth offshore projects running and lined up. The monopile support structure is a comparatively simple design by which the tower is maintained by monopiles either through a transition piece or directly. Monopiles are presently the most commonly used foundation in the offshore wind turbine market owing to their ease of setting up in shallow to medium water depths.

The report provides a near-term to long-term perspective on the trends and forecasts horizon for the market. It offers an overview of the key market drivers and restraints, enabling precise identification of key opportunities in each region over the coming years.
