Offshore Wind Power Market Resiliency

The global renewable energy sector faced expected declines in the first half of 2020, as both solar and wind power capacity installations remained slow due to supply chain accessibility and difficulty moving equipment and goods during the ongoing pandemic. While countries and governments put forward localized actions, the energy sector initiated specific decisions to address the current situation.

Most renewable markets are expected to continue to face short-term disruptions, as the resiliency of the wind power sector will be tested. In 2020, the wind power sector is estimated to generate global revenue of $105.1 billion from an annual installed capacity of 62.1 GW. By 2030, the global annual wind power installation is expected to increase at a CAGR of 2.8% to reach 82.1 GW and generate revenue of $124.1 billion. Although global onshore wind is expected to increase at a CAGR of 1% by 2030, global offshore wind power installations are expected to increase at a CAGR of 12.4% during the forecast period.

This report provides analysis and key recommendation for the global offshore wind market.
