Key Research Insights

  • The global market anticipates more than 1.5x growth in revenue from 2023 to 2030.
  • While onshore installations continue to dominate, a significant global trend is the surge in offshore wind farm installations.
  • Asia Pacific currently contributes revenue of around US$9 billion to the global market and will continue to lead in long term.

Insights into Segmentation Analysis

Onshore Installations Continue to Rule

In the dynamic landscape of the wind power generator market, the onshore wind power segment stands tall, maintaining its stronghold and contributing significantly to global renewable energy capacity. The reasons behind its dominance are multifaceted, driven by cost-effectiveness, mature technology, and a well-established infrastructure that favours onshore wind projects.

One key trend shaping the onshore wind sector is the deployment of larger turbines, enhancing overall efficiency. Industry is witnessing a surge in the integration of improved grid solutions, enabling seamless connectivity, and maximizing the utilisation of generated energy. Additionally, the revitalisation of aging wind farms through repowering initiatives showcases a commitment to sustainability and longevity.

On the other hand, fueled by the increasing demand for clean and sustainable energy, offshore wind projects are gaining momentum worldwide. Initiatives like the Offshore Wind Power Development Strategy in India exemplify the global push towards harnessing the potential of offshore wind resources.

Large turbines deployed in offshore farms not only harness more power but also drive the demand for direct-drive wind turbines, positioning the offshore segment prominently in the forecast period. The strategic placement of offshore wind farms in regions like Europe, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East indicates sustained growth and diversification in the wind power market.

Horizontal-Axis Dominant, Whereas Vertical Counterpart Buckles

In the realm of wind turbine design, the horizontal-axis wind turbine stands out as the dominant force. Its upwind configuration, where the rotor faces the wind, ensures efficiency in escaping the wind shadow behind the tower, contributing to higher energy production. This design, with rotatable propeller-mounted blades, continues to be the preferred choice for its effectiveness in harnessing wind energy.

On the other hand, the vertical-axis wind turbine industry is gaining momentum, driven by its strengths in size, quiet operation, and efficiency. These turbines, known for their ability to be grouped together, offer space-saving solutions suitable for home settings and modest wind installations. The rise in demand for clean, renewable energy sources propels the growth of the vertical-axis wind turbine market, making them both cost-effective and environmentally beneficial.

Key Report Highlights

  • Offshore wind takes centre stage, propelling offshore wind farms to the forefront. This presents a massive opportunity for manufacturers as countries invest heavily in large-scale projects.
  • The industry is moving towards larger, more efficient turbines, coupled with digitalisation and smart technologies for optimised operation, and maintenance.
  • Circular economy principles are gaining traction, with efforts underway to recycle and repurpose end-of-life turbine components.
