COVID-19 Impact

Dip in Energy Demand Prompted Governments to Launch Robust Policies

The ripple effect witnessed due to the COVID-19 pandemic hampered the prospect of the market growth. Prominently, coronavirus led to a plunge in the electricity demand globally. According to the IEA, electricity demand was poised to dip by 5% in 2020. Meanwhile, robust government policies amidst lockdown measures could drive a shift toward low-carbon sources of electricity. Major countries earmarked funds for clean energy against the backdrop of the COVID-19 outbreak. Renewable energy could gain considerable traction following the implementation of less expensive sources and favorable policies.

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on several major wind energy producing countries, such as Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, and China. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), there might be an estimated fall of 6% in the global energy use in 2020. At the same time, the pandemic has affected the expansion of the electricity distribution network in emerging nations by halting the activities.

Drivers and Restraints

Strong Investments in Sustainable Energy Development to Propel Return on Investment (RoI)

Several countries worldwide are nowadays adopting renewable energy sources to reduce the emissions of carbon. Hence, wind and solar energies are experiencing high demand. Also, the offshore wind power industry is set to gain new opportunities because of the increasing usage of onshore wind farms. The Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment 2019 report mentions that there was a surge of USD 272.9 billion in the global investment in renewable energy in 2018. These factors are anticipated to accelerate the floating wind power market growth in the near future.

Stakeholders expect the floating wind power market growth to be pronounced in the wake of increasing investments in low-carbon sources of energy. The expansion of wind farms and power generation will fare well for major companies gearing to bolster their RoI. A palpable focus on green energy will shift focus toward floating offshore wind farms. According to the International Energy Agency 2019 report, offshore wind, such as floating wind power, could produce 11 times more electricity than the world’s requirement, thereby attracting USD 1 trillion in investments by 2040. Furthermore, emphasis on renewable energy sources and the demand for carbon-neutrality electricity could bring a paradigm shift to floating wind power manufacturers and suppliers.

However, high installation and maintenance costs of power cables under the seafloor could dent the growth prospect.  The engineering activities and pre-development of wind farms involve a lot of cost spending. It may obstruct growth.

Industry Development

July 2021: Siemens Gamesa announced participation in the new TetraSpar Demonstration Project along with Stiesdal Offshore Technologies and other industry partners. The project could help reduce the costs of floating offshore wind power.

October 2020: Total purchased a 20 per cent stake in EolMed floating wind pilot project. It is located in the Mediterranean Sea, near Port-La-Nouvelle and off the coast of Gruissan in France. It will contain three MHI Vestas 10 MW turbines.

June 2020: Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy bagged a new order to deliver 100 units of its SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbines for 1.4 GW Sofia Offshore Wind Farm. It is located in the U.K. The project will be able to generate electricity to power more than 1.2 million households.

List of Key Players Mentioned in the Report:

  • Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy S.A. (Spain)
  • MHI Vestas (Denmark)
  • FlowOcean (Sweden)
  • Engie Energy (France)
  • ABB Ltd. (Switzerland)

Deep Water Segment to Remain Dominant with Rising Wind Farm Installation

In terms of water depth, the market is segregated into deep water (>60m depth), transitional water (30m – 60m depth), and shallow water (<30m depth). The deep water segment could account for a notable share of the global market during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to deep waters having higher wind speeds and no obstruction in the wind path, which enhances the potential of capturing wind energy.

Rising Number of Planned Wind Farm Construction to Propel Above 5MW Turbine Segment

In terms of turbine capacity, the market is segmented into above 5 MW, 3 MW – 5 MW, and up to 3 MW. The above 5 MW segment will contribute significantly toward the global market share, partly due to the increasing number of planned wind farm construction. Based on capacity, the above 5 MW earned 63.0% in terms of the floating wind power market share in 2019.

Geographically, the global market is finally classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America.

Regional Insights

Market in Japan to Gain Ground from Increasing Installation of Floating Offshore Wind

Industry participants are poised to expand their penetration in Japan on the back of the rising installation of floating offshore wind. According to the Japan Wind Power Association, Japan contemplates expanding installed floating offshore wind capacity to 4 gigawatts (GW) by 2030 and 18 GW in 2050. Bullish investments in a clean energy portfolio could solidify the position of Japan in the global market.

The Norway floating wind power market share will observe an appreciable gain due to strong investments in projects. For instance, Equinor’s 88 MW Hywind Tampen project was estimated to be functional by 2022. Norway market size was valued at USD 0.02 billion in 2021 and will grow with an infusion of funds into floating offshore wind energy.

The U.S. could emerge as a favorable investment hub in the wake of favorable government policies. To illustrate, the Biden-Harris Administration has set the target to reach 30GW of offshore capacity by 2030. Besides, the U.S. Department of Energy also launched the ATLANTIS program for 12 research projects in 2019.

The United Kingdom, on the other hand, is set to grow significantly as the world’s largest offshore floating wind farm is currently under construction in this country. China will soon become the leader in the coming years. At present, it has several upcoming and under-construction projects lined up for future. In Europe, various countries are considered to be the world leaders in terms of production and usage of wind energy. It would therefore surge the demand for floating wind power plants in this region.

Competitive Landscape

Industry Players Invest in Organic and Inorganic Strategies to Tap into Markets
