Upcoming Trends in U.S. and Global Offshore Wind Energy Market: Research Report

Rising awareness towards a replacement of existing conventional power generation technologies that utilize a substantial amount of fossil fuels whose emissions pollute the environment is expected to catalyze the offshore wind energy market growth.

Rising awareness towards a replacement of existing conventional power generation technologies that utilize a substantial amount of fossil fuels whose emissions pollute the environment is expected to catalyze the offshore wind energy market growth.


According to the research report, the global offshore wind energy market in 2019 was approximately USD 36.07 Billion. The market is expected to grow above a CAGR of 13.5% and is anticipated to reach over USD 87.5 Billion by 2026.

Also called offshore wind power, offshore wind energy is the renewable energy production from the wind farms constructed off the shore to harvest wind energy for electricity generation. Offshore wind power includes deep water areas that utilize floating wind turbines and inshore water areas such as fjords, lakes, and sheltered coastal areas, which utilize conventional fixed bottom wind turbine technologies.

The electrical infrastructure segment is anticipated to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high growth of this segment is owing to the growth of land-based transmission infrastructure, offshore substation, and accessories of the offshore wind turbines. In the location segmentation for offshore wind turbines, the shallow water installations are anticipated to hold the largest share during the forecast period. The installation of wind energy systems in shallow water is considered to be cost-effective due to suitable weather conditions. The installation of wind turbines in deep water is expensive therefore is considered to be a less optimal solution. Despite the challenges and cost, the installation of offshore wind turbines is continued in all three water locations largely based on wind speed.

Europe is expected to continue the trend of dominance owing to a higher presence of shallow water regions and increased government funding. The drive towards lowering carbon footprints and greenhouse emissions have further boosted the market growth. The Asia Pacific region is expected to hold second position owing to government funding towards the offshore projects. Japan is leading the way in the Asia Pacific region while other countries are expected to follow a similar trend. The growing industrialization is catalyzing the need for higher energy demand from the power sector which in turn is propelling towards the adoption of renewable energy production solutions. The coastal countries in this region are focusing on power generation through renewable energy sources and offshore wind farms thus propelling the market growth. Technological advancement and clean energy consumption are expected to be key drivers propelling the offshore wind energy installation thereby creating opportunities in major markets in the Asia-Pacific region, especially in countries like Japan, China, and South Korea.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
