Market Data: Offshore Wind Market and Turbine Vendor Assessment

Global and Country-Level Market Analysis, Forecasts, Wind Turbine OEM Market Shares, and Turbine Technology Trends

The offshore wind power industry continues to grow at a steady pace. It is expanding to new markets as cost reductions in the technology and demand for renewable energy become increasingly attractive to governments, power utilities and other stakeholders. Though less offshore wind is installed annually compared to onshore wind, it is an abundant clean energy solution for many coastal load centers where a greater proportion of population and energy demand is located. Over 69 GW of new offshore wind capacity is expected to be installed between 2018 and 2027, exceeding 100 GW of operating capacity by 2030.

Offshore wind is quickly becoming more cost-effective with each successive competitive tender in Europe. Power purchase prices for projects are dropping, driven by turbine size and other technology improvements, economies of scale, faster installation cycles, and increased supply chain competition. Industry-leading countries like the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, and Belgium are well into a transition phase to market-oriented policies and include highly competitive bidding for power contracts. Competitive bidding has also begun in the US ahead of offshore project installations along the Northeastern seaboard.

This Navigant Research report provides a country-level analysis of all offshore wind markets, with a data focus on key market activity, installation rates, and capacity under construction or in planning. The study provides data about turbine manufacturers, including overall global market shares and more granular installed capacity by country and wind turbine vendor. The report also details average rotor diameters, specific power and turbine nameplate ratings by installed year, and the shifting market share diversification of offshore foundation types, including the latest floating wind activity.
