Global Wind Energy Database 2Q20

The global wind industry installed 59.7 GW in 2019, a substantial increase from the 51.4 GW installed in 2018. This growth comes despite a wind market that has faced challenges in recent years. These challenges include many mature country markets eliminating or reducing subsidies and many markets shifting to competitive power contract auctions, tenders, and other wind procurement mechanisms that squeeze profit margins throughout the supply chain. Meanwhile, solar PV is a capable competitor in the clean energy arena thanks to its rapid cost reductions.

Despite these challenges, the wind market is holding steady and adjusting to a new normal of intense price competition. Some markets, such as the US and China in the short term, are experiencing rapid near-term increases of capacity additions as generous policies change or phase out. The US market is expected to peak in 2020 with more than 12 GW of new capacity added as tax credits phase out. Wind power is being developed not only in a greater variety of countries but also offshore and onshore. Offshore wind development is increasing worldwide at a 13% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2020-2029. China, Taiwan, and Europe are the leading markets, with the US soon to join when the first large-scale offshore wind plants are commissioned in coming years along the northeast coast of the country.

This Guidehouse Insights report provides an interactive database that enables a deep dive into the global wind power market. The report enables assessment of current and future development cycle and projections for new installed wind capacity. Global market forecasts, segmented by region, application, and additional capacity installed extends through 2030.
