In an effort to address global warming and mitigate climate change, governments across the world are supporting the production and use of wind energy. The governments and energy industries have made large-scale investments in wind energy projects to harness clean energy as well as to minimize the carbon footprint. The wind energy is witnessing tremendous growth as government bodies are implementing policies such as tax rebates, subsidiaries, and minimum purchase price on wind turbine components and equipment for facilitating a shift from conventional energy to renewable energy. Increased government spending to develop plants for the generation of renewable energy, such as solar and wind energy, is expected to drive the wind turbine gear oil market during the forecast period.
Wind energy is one of the renewable energy technologies which is growing at a rapid pace. The global installed capacity of wind energy has increased 75 times in the past two decades. According to the International Renewable Energy Agency, it rose from 7.5 gigawatts in 1997 to ~564 gigawatts in 2018. The demand for wind turbine gear oil is dependent on factors such as new wind turbine installations and the frequency of oil change. The growing number of wind farms in China, Europe, and North America is expected to drive the market for wind turbine gear oil. According to the World Wind Energy Association, the global capacity of windmills reached 597 gigaWatt in 2018. The imperative to achieve the objectives of the Paris Climate Change agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals have accelerated government led investments in new wind farm projects. The growing capacity of wind farms and surge in the number of wind farm projects globally are expected to drive the market for wind turbines, and consequently generate significant demand for wind turbine gear oil.
Based on product, the global wind turbine gear oil market has been segmented into synthetic gear oil, mineral gear oil, and others. Under the product segment, the synthetic gear oil segment led the global wind turbine gear oil market. The use of synthetic oil over mineral and other oils provides benefits through lower evaporation losses and a tendency to form residues, improved lubricity, thermal and oxidation resistance, viscosity-temperature behavior, and low-temperature properties; reduced flammability; and resistance to ambient media. Synthetic oil is refined oil with uniform molecular size, which reduces the coefficient of friction, and hence, this oil is increasingly used in gearboxes of turbines for their excellent lubricating properties. The growing use of synthetic gear oil in turbine gearboxes to increase the gear efficiency is expected to drive the sales of synthetic gear oil during 2019–2027.
The global wind turbine gear oil market by application has been segmented into onshore and offshore. The wind turbine gear oil market for the onshore application accounted for the largest share in the global wind turbine gear oil market. Onshore applications refer to the wind turbines installed on land. They are generally located on barren lands on which there is no restriction to the flow of wind. The cost associated with installing onshore windmill is relatively less compared to that associated with the installation of offshore windmills. The wind turbines gear oil market for the onshore segment is expected to grow at a considerable pace during the forecast period owing to the hike in the number of windmills owned by private companies as well as individuals.
