The offshore wind market is expected to grow from an estimated USD 27,019.1 million in 2017 to USD 55,109.6 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 15.32% from 2017 to 2022. The global market is witnessing significant growth due to rising energy demand coupled with increasing share of renewables in the power generation mix, regulations on energy efficiency, growing trend of industrialization and increased urbanization, regulations to ensure efficiency and utilization of energy.

The shallow water segment is expected to hold the largest share of the offshore wind market, by location, during the forecast period.
Among the three-water depth location for offshore wind turbines, shallow water is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period. The development of shallow water is generally cost effective due to better weather conditions, whereas, installing wind turbines in deep water becomes expensive due to high maintenance cost. However, offshore wind turbines are getting installed in all three water locations depending on the region, turbine capacity, and wind speed. Shallow water condition mostly prevails in the European countries due to favorable weather conditions. The major players that provide turbines which can be installed in shallow water includes Siemens AG (Germany) and MHI Vestas (Denmark), among others.

The electrical infrastructure segment is expected to be the fastest growing offshore wind market, by component, during the forecast period.
The electrical infrastructure segment is expected to account for the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the growth of offshore substation, land-based transmission infrastructure, and cables and accessories related to the offshore wind turbines. Offshore substation controls the electric system of the turbine and increases the voltage of electricity produced by the wind turbines to reduce electrical losses. Land-based transmission infrastructure includes onshore transmission or conversion equipment, required to connect the wind farm project to the power grid. The last most important component of an electrical infrastructure is the cable and are primarily of two types, namely, inter-array cables and export cables. Inter-array cables connect the turbines to the offshore substation while the export cables are used to transmit the power from offshore substation to the onshore substation and power grid.

Asia Pacific: The second largest market for offshore wind.
This region is expected to grow at second position followed by Europe due to its growing trends such as increasing urbanization and industrialization which is leading to higher demand in the power sector. The countries are focusing on power generation through renewable energy sources and offshore wind forms an integral part of renewable based power generation. Technological advancement and clean energy consumption would further propel wind power deployment and open up opportunities in emerging markets in Asia-Pacific, especially in countries like China, Japan, and South Korea as they are looking for alternative source of energy to diversify their energy mix to reduce CO2 emission. The other major drivers include strict government regulations on energy efficiency.
