Renewable energy can be produced from a wide variety of sources including wind, solar, hydro, tidal, geothermal, and biomass. By using more renewables to meet its energy needs, many countries try to lower their dependence on imported fossil fuels and make its energy production more sustainable. The renewable energy industry also drives technological innovation and employment towards growth.
As a proven source of clean and affordable energy, wind resources clearly have a vital role to play in realizing these goals. With proper planning and mitigation measures, it is possible to construct offshore/ onshore wind without damaging the environment. The market for wind towers, which forms a major part of a wind turbine system both cost wise and size wise, is directly related to the market for wind turbines. The shift towards clean renewable energy is the main driver for the wind energy market, and therefore the turbine tower market. The global wind tower market is expected to reach more than USD 26 Billion by 2023 with a CAGR of 7.45%.
The growth in this sector is due to the increasing demand for clean and reliable energy to reduce the global carbon emissions, and to maintain ecological balance by generating electricity through renewable resources. However, high initial capital cost of projects with high maintenance cost and logistics issues, can hinder the wind tower market. Global Wind tower market has a very broad market in recent years. MRFR analysts have predicted that wind tower market is about to grow at a rapid pace. Moreover, the economic growth with emissions reduction have given the growth, momentum.
Different types of wind towers are used for the efficient generation of wind energy. Tubular steel towers, concrete towers, lattice towers and hybrid towers are used for large wind turbines. Whereas, guyed pole towers are used for small wind turbines. Wind tower being one of the most important parts of a wind turbine would cost 25% to 30% of the total cost of wind turbine. Wind towers are specially designed for different applications. Wind towers are manufactured for both, onshore wind turbine and offshore wind turbine.
Geographically, Asia Pacific is a major revenue generator to the global wind market, where China, Japan and India are considered the prominent countries owing to the demand for electricity, rapid urbanization and technological advancements. Investments in wind towers are based on the nacelle and turbine. The strength and stability of a wind tower is influenced by the material and weight. The market is primarily influenced by the design of a wind tower. Thus, wind towers for onshore applications are decidedly different from towers meant for offshore use.
Global Wind tower Market:
Currently, the wind energy is in the growth stage. This is due to the increase in demand for power, global initiatives to use more renewable, non-conventional energy sources, and the global need to restrict carbon emission. European governments and the EU, as a whole, have supported wind projects with favourable incentives, as part of their carbon emission reduction goals. Europe region is currently the leading in wind tower market, and is followed by North America.
Asia Pacific is expected to grow during the forecast period due to many reasons. Increasing wind power generation capacity, stringent environmental regulations for emissions from burning conventional fuel, increasing demand of larger blades, and increased government support for wind power projects, are some of them. Currently, China has the largest number of wind energy projects under planning and construction phase, which is followed by Japan and South Korea.
