The Global Wind Energy Market Size is expected to reach USD 151.47 Billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030.


Market Overview

Wind energy is generated by wind turbines, which are erected on earth's surfaces, either on land or at high sea, to generate electricity from the wind caused by the planet's revolution and the sun's radiation. Wind turbines gather and transform the kinetic energy produced by the wind into electricity, which is then used to power the grid. Wind energy is a well-known, renewable, and sustainable energy source that has a far lower environmental impact than fossil fuel combustion.

Onshore wind energy and offshore wind energy are the two types of wind energy now available, depending on where the wind turbines are located. Onshore wind energy uses wind farms on land to collect the wind and convert it into electricity. Offshore wind energy is created by utilizing the wind's force as it blows across the open ocean, where there are no obstructions and it may travel farther and faster than on land.

Compared to new gas and coal power plants, wind energy is a less expensive source of electricity. Wind turbines achieved grid parity in several parts of Europe and the United States around the mid-2000s, according to BusinessGreen. After an increase of around 100 GW in 2021, the global installed wind power capacity topped 800 GW, mostly in China and the United States.

Driving Factors

The demand for renewable, sustainable, clean, and affordable energy sources is expected to expand, which will lead to an expansion in the global wind energy market. Global demand for wind power is also anticipated to grow as a result of favorable policy frameworks, regulatory frameworks, and encouragement of sustainable energy sources that, unlike conventional power sources, may reduce carbon emissions by various governments across various countries.

In order to reduce carbon emissions, both developed and developing nations' regulatory authorities and agencies are focusing on lowering reliance on conventional energy sources, which is boosting the production of power from renewable energy sources like solar and wind. The growing demand for energy in a number of industries such as healthcare, food & beverage and residential has fueled the growth of the wind energy market over the projected timeframe.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2021, the above 5 MW segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period

On the basis of capacity, the Global Wind Energy Market is segmented into up to 1 MW, 1 MW to 3 MW, 3 MW to 5 MW, and above 5 MW. Among these, the above 5MW segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period owing to the rising demand for onshore installation applications. A capacity above 5 MW is mostly used to meet the energy needs of large-scale electricity consumption industries and the utility sector.


  • In 2021, the turbine segment is dominating the market over the forecast period

On the basis of component, the Global Wind Energy Market is segmented into turbine, support structure, electrical infrastructure, and others. Among these, the turbines category is expected to increase at a significant CAGR over the forecast period as a result of technological advancements and lower wind turbine costs. Wind turbine blades are becoming broader and lightweight as modern wind turbine technology has improved turbine performance and enhanced power generation efficiency compared to prior generations. Wind energy can also potentially provide employment during the phases of construction and operation. For example, careers include wind turbine production and construction, which includes transporting, installing, and ultimately maintaining the turbines. In 2020, wind power was expected to employ 1.25 million people.


  • In 2021, the offshore segment holds the largest market share over the forecast period

On the basis of location, the Global Wind Energy Market is segmented into onshore and offshore. Among these, the offshore segment is predicted to grow the most over the forecast period because of the accessibility of modern technology and optimized conditions provided by various government agencies and manufacturing companies. These deployment techniques rely on more recurrent and dynamic winds prevalent in vast bodies of water, typically the sea, and have a lower aesthetic impact on the landscape than land-based deployments. The Hornsea Wind Farm in the U.k. was the largest offshore wind field in the world in November 2021, with 1,218 MW. Additionally, increased research and cutting-edge technology have lowered the overall production cost of offshore wind turbine deployments, which is predicted to benefit renewable energy sources market globally.


  • In 2021, the utility segment is dominating the market with the largest market share of 47% over the forecast period

Based on the application, the Global Wind Energy Market is segmented into utility and non-utility. Among these, the utility segment dominates the market with the largest market share of 47% over the forecast period. Utility applications are frequently employed for large-scale wind turbine installations or multi-turbine wind farms that are linked to the nation's transmission system. Large-scale utility-scale wind generating projects require a significant number of land, building, and other permissions, as well as proper management of interactions with various participants.
