Several world governments are making considerable investments in clean energy to secure their energy requirements for the future. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), clean energy investments by nations transitioning to a renewable energy infrastructure have reached over USD 1.2 trillion since the start of the pandemic. Meanwhile, tightening emission norms are also making the case for business growth. In November 2022, U.S. Department of Energy, unveiled a USD 550 million funding for clean energy initiatives from the Biden-Harris administration to lower energy costs for over 250 million Americans.

Component installation-related complexities may restrain industry growth

Despite a strong influx of investments, major challenges such as high capital expenses related to the systems and complexities of component installation may constrain the offshore wind industry outlook. Offshore wind farms are constructed off the coast, in the middle of seas and oceans, in regions that witness consistent and high windspeed on a daily basis. The frequent exposure to elements and salt water elevates associated risks such as corrosion, cable failure, and damage. As a result, wind farms need consistent maintenance and upkeep to remain operational, making them an expansive endeavour.

Offshore wind energy market value from the support structure component segment is anticipated to surpass USD 49 billion by 2032, fueled by growing emphasis on enhancing the design and development of supporting infrastructures for sustaining coincident loads and waves at offshore locations. These efforts are leading to consistent advancements in substructures and foundations such as jacket and monopile for various depth applications such as medium, shallow, and deep water.

Europe Offshore Wind Energy Market, By Depth, 2022, (USD Million)
Application Market Size, 2022
>0 ≤ 30 m 26,274.80
>30 ≤ 50 m 20,644.50
> 50 m 882.8
Total 47,802

In terms of depth, the offshore wind energy market from the > 0 to ≤ 30 m segment are predicted to observe nearly 9% gains through 2032, owing to favorable regulatory mandates across emerging economies. Meanwhile, strong investments by major government bodies to encourage the deployment of wind energy is also escalating the segment growth. Europe, with an abundance of sea basins, dominates the industry when it comes to offshore wind investments. in fact, the EU invested over €41 billion ($43.5 billion) in new wind farms in the region 2021. The capital primarily went into financing 25 GW of novel capacity, a new record.

The product features an operating range of 4 MW to 5 MW and is equipped with 76 m blades and OptimaFlex technology.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the offshore wind energy industry as lockdowns brought supply chains to a grinding halt and delayed the construction of novel offshore wind projects temporarily. The market has also struggled to alleviate the economic pressure created by the post-pandemic energy crisis across a number of developed economies. Now, as it faces a new challenge of heightened geopolitical tensions, the industry is expected find itself in a particularly precarious position. However, a steady influx of government investments in clean energy is likely to see the industry through the turmoil.
