Growth Opportunities in the Global Wind Services Market
全球風電服務市場預計將從 2021 年的 189.5 億美元增長到 2030 年的 422.5 億美元，複合年增長率為 8.2%。
預計 2021 年至 2030 年間將有超過 1,000 吉瓦的風電裝機容量運行，預計這將顯著增加風電服務市場的機會。除了發電量的年度增長外，市場機會很可能來自已經過保修期的老化風力渦輪機，尤其是在歐洲和北美。預計所有地區的風電服務市場都將增長。年發電量增加、風力渦輪機老化和數字創新可能會推動市場發展。
Increasing Adoption of Digital Technologies and Technological Innovations to Drive the Global Wind Services Market
Continued concerns over increasing carbon emissions and the need to mitigate climate change have forced governments to accelerate investments in renewable energy. Wind and solar energy, in particular, are expected to play a crucial role in the global race toward decarbonization. Over the last ten years, wind energy capacity additions have gained momentum worldwide. Wind energy has become one of the fastest-growing energy sources and one of the most economical solutions for electricity generation.
As wind energy grows, the demand for operations and maintenance (O&M) services increases, to maintain the wind power fleet and keep turbines spinning and producing clean energy without any disturbance. O&M plays a crucial role in the wind energy industry and ensures the long-term sustainability and growth of wind power worldwide. In addition, the aftersales and service business continues to be an increasingly important source of revenue for OEMs and independent service providers (ISPs). The wind service business is now fully recognized as an important business opportunity worldwide and will continue to grow, with new capacity additions coming online.
Over 1000 GW of wind power capacity will come online between 2021 and 2030, which would significantly increase the opportunity for the wind services market. During this period, the global wind services market is forecast to grow from $18.95 billion to $42.25 billion by 2030, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.2%. Besides yearly capacity additions, the opportunity for the wind services market will come from ageing wind turbines coming out of warranty, especially across Europe and North America. Typical service costs for old turbines are higher than for new ones, thus increasing the annual revenue for OEMs and ISPs. Overall, the scope for the wind services market is expected to grow across all geographies.
Currently, the leading participants in the wind service industry are turbine OEMs and ISPs. Component manufacturers and in-house service teams have a small share across the market. As the global renewables market continues to grow and mature, the wind services industry is shifting from product-focused to service-focused business models and witnessing an increasing scale of digitalization, which has created new entrants: specialized service providers. These new service providers offer technical services, including drones and robots for monitoring and assessing or even individual component based monitoring.
The wind services market is segmented based on region, application, and contract type in this study. In terms of application, the services market has been described separately for onshore and offshore. The market has been segmented into the following five regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (including India and China), Latin America, and Middle East and Africa. Asia-Pacific is the largest wind services market, accounting for 40.1% of the global market in 2020. Rapidly increasing installations of wind turbines and favorable regulations are the primary drivers of the wind turbine O&M market in Asia-Pacific. China, Japan, and India are some of the largest countries with cumulative installations in the region. Europe was the second-largest market for wind services in 2020. In service contracts, the shift toward energy availability contracts is expected to dominate the market, followed by service contracts offered by specialized service providers.
The future outlook for the wind services market remains positive, although the challenges posed by COVID-19 and the scope for wind services are expected to grow across all geographies. Overall, increasing annual capacity additions, ageing wind turbines, and innovations in digitalization will drive the wind services market.
