Global Wind Power Market Report - Market Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Outlook - Industry Trends and Forecast to 2028

Market Research Reports | Q1 2024 | Report ID: BR01934

About the Report

The global wind power market is growing rapidly. This expansion of the market is attributed to several key factors, including the widespread deployment of wind power projects, decreasing wind turbine costs, government policies aimed at achieving emission reduction targets and enhancing energy security, and a surge in investments in the wind energy market.


However, the time-consuming permitting process, environmental concerns, and grid infrastructure constraints are some of the major restraints on global wind power market growth.


Global Wind Energy Scenario

In 2022, the global wind energy sector saw an increase of 75 GW in installed capacity, comprising 12 GW in offshore wind power and 63 GW in onshore installations. While this figure represents a 17% decrease compared to the previous year, it stands as the third-highest year in history for wind capacity additions.


Global annual wind power installations, in GW, 2017-2022


Regarding wind power generation, the year 2022 witnessed a remarkable increase in wind electricity generation, with a record-breaking growth of 265 terawatt-hours (TWh), marking a 14% rise. This boost propelled wind energy production to surpass 2,100 TWh, securing its position as the second-highest growing renewable power technology, following closely behind solar photovoltaics (PV).



Supportive Policies

Policy support by governments around the world continues to be the main driver of global wind power market. A wide range of policy mechanisms are propelling capacity growth, encompassing auctions, feed-in tariffs, contracts for difference, and renewable energy portfolio standards.


For instance, in August 2022, the U.S. federal government unveiled the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), a comprehensive initiative that substantially augments support for renewable energy sources over the next decade. This support is achieved through a combination of tax credits and various other measures.


The IRA has new advanced manufacturing production credits for companies that domestically manufacture and sell clean energy equipment in the United States between December 31, 2022, and December 31, 2032.


Similarly, in October 2023, the European Commission unveiled the European Wind Power Action Plan, designed to align the clean energy transition with industrial competitiveness. This comprehensive plan outlines immediate collaborative actions to be taken by the Commission, Member States, and the industry. It builds upon existing policies and legislation and centers on six primary focus areas.


One of the key focal points is the acceleration of deployment through enhanced predictability and streamlined permitting procedures. To facilitate this, the Commission is initiating the "Accele-RES" program in partnership with Member States. This initiative aims to expedite the implementation of revised EU renewable energy regulations, with an emphasis on digitalizing permitting processes and providing technical support to Member States.


Regional Analysis

The Asia-Pacific wind power market is currently dominating the global market, primarily due to China. Following the establishment of a local wind supply chain between 2008 and 2010, China has not only risen to prominence as the world's leading wind turbine manufacturing hub but has also become the largest production center for critical components and raw materials in the wind energy industry.


China also remains at the forefront in terms of wind capacity growth, having added an impressive 37 GW in 2022, which includes 7 GW from offshore farms. The unveiling of the 14th Five-Year Plan for Renewable Energy in 2022 sets forth ambitious objectives for the deployment of renewables by 2025, including an 18% target for wind and solar technologies. These targets are expected to propel even more significant advancements in the years ahead.


India has also gained a prominent position in the global wind supply chain.


In response to the energy crisis, the European Union is ramping up its wind deployment efforts, achieving a remarkable addition of 13 GW in 2022. The proposed policies and targets outlined in the REPowerEU Plan and the Green Deal Industrial Plan are poised to play pivotal roles in stimulating investments in wind power.


In 2022, the United Kingdom made substantial strides in offshore wind energy by installing nearly 3 GW of capacity. Notably, this achievement surpasses the combined offshore wind capacity additions of the entire world, excluding China.


In the North American region, the United States is leading the market with the addition of 7.8 GW of wind power capacity. This was due to the inclusion of generous new funding for wind power in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), introduced in 2022. Investment and production tax credits are expected to boost capacity deployment during the forecast period.


In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, European and American turbine Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) made strategic decisions to diversify their supply chains, with the aim of ensuring a secure and reliable source of supply.


Segment Analysis

The Onshore wind segment continues to lead the wind capacity addition growth. However, the offshore segment is increasing its share. By the end of 2022, globally, 93% of the total installed wind power capacity was in the onshore segment, and the remaining 7% was in the offshore segment.


Onshore wind technology is well-established, with a presence in 115 countries globally. In contrast, offshore wind is still in its early stages of expansion and is currently operational in just 20 countries. However, the offshore reach is expected to grow in the forthcoming years as more nations are in the process of developing or planning their inaugural offshore wind farms.


Recent Developments

  • In November 2023, Shell plc made the decision to withdraw from its power purchase agreement (PPA) associated with the SouthCoast windfarm project, located off the coast of Massachusetts. Instead of proceeding with the project and incurring escalating construction costs, Shell opted to pay a penalty.
  • Bangladesh approved the feasibility study for its first offshore wind power project. The initial phase of development of the site is also scheduled to be completed within the next three years.
  • Global energy developer Orsted has made an unexpected decision to cancel two significant offshore wind projects, Ocean Wind 1 and Ocean Wind 2, off the coast of New Jersey. This move is attributed to shifting macroeconomic dynamics, including elevated inflation rates, supply chain disruptions, and the increasing cost of borrowing due to rising interest rates.
  • In November 2023, Vestas, a leading Danish wind turbine manufacturer, in collaboration with Zhong Neng offshore wind farm, successfully launched the first locally assembled offshore wind turbine rotor hub in Taiwan.
  • The Biden administration has granted approval for the largest offshore wind project in the United States in October 2023. The Coastal Virginia offshore wind project, upon its completion, will provide clean energy to power 900,000 homes, generate thousands of job opportunities, and contribute an impressive 2,600 megawatts of clean energy to the grid.
  • In November 2023, HD Hyundai Electric, a Korean energy solutions company, signed a multi-partner agreement to help develop a 3.2-gigawatt offshore wind power project off the coast of South Korea.
  • Rajalakshmi Group, based in Chennai, India, has embarked on a new venture in the manufacturing of wind turbines. Their manufacturing facility is expected to be established in Gummidipoondi, near Chennai, with technology support from Germany's Vensys. The company is actively developing a 4 MW turbine through its subsidiary, Ventus Power, and aims to commence turbine sales in 2025. This move represents an exciting development in India's renewable energy landscape.
