Wind Energy Market Drivers and Opportunities

Government Initiatives to Promote the Installation of Wind farms are expected to be the Prime Driver for the Wind energy market.

Increase in support from various governments of different countries in terms of policies, subsidies, and investment for raising the installation of wind energy projects is projected to fuel the wind energy market growth over the analyzed timeframe. The Indian government is engaged in promoting wind power plants in the country through private sector funding by providing various fiscal and financial incentives such as Accelerated Depreciation benefits and concessional custom duty or tax exemption on certain components of wind electric generators. For instance, Germany is planning to introduce a bill to accelerate wind energy expansion. The new law will apply binding area targets for onshore wind energy expansion in the federal states. In April 2022, Germany planned to deploy offshore wind targets to more than 10 GW per year from 2025 with the help of a historic package called the Easter Package, which is the most profound series of changes in German energy policy. With the help of these government initiatives, 80% of Germany's electricity demand will be covered by electricity from renewable energy sources by 2030.

The Growing Focus on Floating Wind Technology holds Potential Growth Opportunities.

The floating wind technology is the offshore wind turbine mounted on a floating structure in sea that ensures the turbine to generate electricity in water depths. The floating or offshore wind technology is highly efficient in harsh environmental conditions and thus capable of producing huge amounts of power. This floating wind technology is globally adopted across various countries such as China, Germany, Japan, the UK, France, Belgium, and Denmark. The growth prospects in the adoption of floating wind technology are primarily attributed to an increase in advancement in technology, associated advantages, and turnkey solutions provided by various service providers. The growing awareness for achieving the clean energy targets by various countries is propelling the demand for floating offshore wind power which is posing potential opportunity for the growth of the wind energy market.

The Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence report has identified 22 countries that are most ready to become major players in the nascent renewable energy technology. In January 2022, The United Kingdom government announced 11 renwable power projects that will each be awarded up to US$959.23 million as it puts forward US$2.97 billion to boost the renewable energy generated in the UK. Such investment in offshore or floating wind technology across the world is projected to fuel the market growth in the coming years.
