Wind Turbine Forging Market Size

Wind Turbine Forging Market size surpassed USD 7.7 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to register 7.1% CAGR from 2023 to 2032. The demand for offshore wind energy cost reductions, targets for net zero emissions by 2050, and the exceptional increase in wind capacity are the factors driving industry growth. The sector will grow in the next few years due to the increasing wind turbine installations in North America and Asia Pacific.

Wind Turbine Forging Market

The International Energy Agency (IEA) reported that the global wind electricity generation experienced the fastest growth rate of any renewable energy technology in 2022 compared to 2021 with a 55% increase. The increasing awareness regarding electricity generation from wind turbines will create a demand for wind turbine. The growing wind turbine production will positively impact the wind turbine forging market.

COVID-19 impact

The covid-19 pandemic have a negative impact on the wind turbine forging industry. The manufacturer of wind turbine parts faced a huge challenge due to restriction and disruption in supply chain. The installation of wind turbine was low in 2021 due to pandemic. This has resulted in decreased demand for forged parts of wind turbine, and had a negative impact on the industry demand.

The capacity utilization of energy has significantly decreased in countries such as China due to COVID-19 pandemic. This is due to the measures Chinese authority have taken to contain the spread of pandemic. The global supply chain from raw material sourcing to installation and building was disrupted due to COVID-19 pandemic. These factor has decreased the wind turbine forging market demand globally.

Wind Turbine Forging Industry Trends

Energy transition describes the change in the global energy industry away from fossil-based methods of generating and using electricity, such as oil, natural gas, and coal, and towards lithium-ion batteries and energy from renewable sources like solar and wind power.The introduction of electricity, the increased use of renewable energy, and advancements in energy storage are all major forces behind the energy shift. Despite varying levels of regulation and decarbonization commitment, the energy shift will continue to gain importance as long as investors give importance to environmental, social, and governance  factors. There is growing shift of consumer aslo towards use of wind turbine for electrcity production.

In order to function in distant places, challenging operating situations, and hostile surroundings, wind turbines require high-performance turbine components. Manufacturers of turbine components are being prompted by the technological demands of the wind energy generating sector to provide forged parts for performance enhancement. Companies have been obliged to work together and collaborate with metallurgists and forging experts to find innovative techniques for developing metal forged components that lower long-term costs and improve lead times due to the increasing demand for such items. The wind turbine forging market growth is expected to increase due to the net zero targets and the growing pressure for achieving energy security.
