Onshore Wind Energy Market Scenario


Onshore Wind energy market is expected to expand at 27% CAGR during the forecast period.


Global onshore wind market is expected to grow at a faster pace shortly, the main reasons being increased context of energy supply, and demand and rising demand for renewable energy in electricity generation mix. Global Wind Energy Council has estimated that there has been an increase of wind power from 92.4 GW in 2007 to 494.6 GW in 2017. This proves the promising future of wind power in the near future. Besides the increasing projects in the construction of wind farms and wind parks is driving the market. More wind farm projects from U.S. and China are witnessing the growth of wind power. However, higher outputs from offshore wind farm and more focus on offshore wind projects, is restraining the market.


Global onshore wind energy market is segmented based on power capacity, wind capacity, end-use, application, grid connectivity, and regions. Based on the wind capacity segment, the market is classified as high wind speed, medium wind speed, and low wind speed. Among these the high wind speed projects are expected to dominate the market as there are turbines, which operate individually and generate power of around 2.3 MW. On the basis of power capacity the market is segmented on the basis of generation capacity of the wind towers, such as, less than 500 KW, 500 KW to 2 MW, and more than 2 MW. The wind towers generating more than 2 MW, hold a major market share supported by the fact that new technologies are able to generate high capacity of wind. On the basis of end-use the market is classified as, Utilities, Hybrid power, Commercial & Industrial, and others. Utilities are the prime shareholder as there is increasing demand for electricity from the nations. Based on application, the segments are, system stability, peak power management, frequency response, demand response, and power storage. With increasing demand of electricity in peak hours and peak seasons, the demand is fulfilled by the electricity generated by onshore wind farms and thus peak power management application is expected to dominate the market. On the basis of grid connectivity, the market is classified as off-grid and on-grid. By region type, the market is segmented into the four geographies of North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of World.


Onshore wind energy market is anticipated to have huge growth over the forecast period by continuously innovating in technology coupled with more demand for wind farms construction and increasing demand for electricity. The market is also expected to have high expansion and technological activities by major players in the industry.

Global Market of Onshore Wind Energy


Wind power is the electricity generated from the wind energy which is converted into electrical energy with the help of rotors and generators. Since the growth of renewables is maximum in the current scenario, wind energy is gaining attention from power generators. Wind energy has capability to generate a higher capacity of electricity than other renewable sources. Wind farms and wind parks are created to optimize the wind energy to the maximum and generate approximately 6 to 8 MW of power. For instance Gansu Wind Farm of China has the capacity to produce 6.8 MW of power. Innovation in the wind turbine sector is shaping the onshore wind energy scenario with focus on Leveled Cost of electricity. Siemens has come up with a direct drive concept of wind energy, which has fewer components and consequently cuts down the costs of maintenance.


The global onshore wind energy market is expected to witness phenomenal growth during the forecast period. Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017. In Asia Pacific increasing installed capacity of electricity along with increasing emphasis on renewable energy in China, India, and Japan is likely to drive the market growth over the forecast period. North America and Europe are also expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The increasing concern for clean energy coupled with strict regulations for conventional power generation, encourage the growth in these regions.
