Wind turbines segment accounted for over 29% of the offshore wind energy market revenue in 2019. Wind turbines in the last decade have emerged as a core component across modern day wind-based power plants. Fundamental for this evolution is the industry re-structuring across power markets and rapid technological enhancements associated with the field of aerodynamics, and material composition. Manufactures through effective optimization & standardized product processes have incorporated environmental compatibility, high product efficiencies & power output and low installation costs, thereby positively swaying the market demand.

Companies are directing significant budgets toward project installation and R&D activities aimed toward augmenting the operational efficiency and develop their product portfolio. The ongoing incorporation of advance components & infrastructure will boost the offshore wind market growth. For instance, in March 2020, Enercon installed a new prototype E-138 EP3 for their E2 wind turbines at the Janneby site which is situated in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. The new prototype increased the nominal power of E2 turbines from 3.5 MW to 4.2 MW and will help the company yield an additional power of 1.5 Million kWh every year.

Nearshore project deployments have gained significant penetration over the past decade. Their ability to offer a competitive energy transition coupled with higher potential has accelerated the development of offshore projects at >0 ≤ 30 m depth levels. As of now, the average water depth of offshore wind farms under construction is between 30 - 33 meters. The projects developed in this water depth offer higher potential for grid connectivity and more economical as compared to the projects developed across high water depths, thereby driving the market demand.

Adoption of favorable regulatory policies to drive the European market statistics

Europe has emerged as a dominant offshore wind energy market player in the past decades. The UK leads the European market with a cumulative capacity of 9.9 GW in 2019 and is anticipated to observe growth of around 28% through 2026. The country has added over 5 GW of offshore wind energy in its renewable portfolio from 2015. The government of the UK has introduced Contracts for Difference to ensure stable long-term returns from electrical infrastructure projects, thereby minimizing the barriers to market entry for industry participants.

The reform also lays provision to establish viable return to investors coupled with encouraging funding through leveraging schemes. Strong focus toward the development of utility scale projects and ongoing identification of potential sites for offshore projects will provide impetus to the market revenue. The market sentiment across the EU toward the development of offshore wind energy infrastructure remains bullish, appealing prominent investments.
