Market Size & Trends

The global wind turbine operations and maintenance market size was valued at USD 15.86 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.0% from 2023 to 2030. Repairing and maintenance of turbines is an integral part of the wind energy project. Efficient maintenance helps in reducing failure rate and thus avoids outage time at the time of event failure. Components including gears, control systems, electric systems, yaw systems, blades, pitch systems, rotors, generator, sensors, and hydraulics, are critical in nature and prone to failure. Unexpected breakdown of turbine components leads to high downtime and affects productivity, thereby increasing the need for effective monitoring and maintenance at regular intervals.

U.S. wind turbine operations and maintenance market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Increase in capacity installations across the globe has accelerated the wind turbine operations and maintenance industry. Focus on reducing environmental impacts in the power generation industry was the key driver for exponential growth in annual installation over the past few years, leading to rapid growth in capacity installation in Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America. 

Favorable government policies and attractive incentives were implemented to develop a zero emission power system, which in turn fueled annual installation capacity over the past few tears. Countries including China, Germany, India, Japan, and France are focusing to reduce their dependency on fossil fuel-based power source. 

Developed countries within Europe have been focusing on market-based schemes such as competitive auctions and feed-in-premium tariffs. China has been supporting industry growth through the implementation of favorable plans and policies such as the mandatory purchase of renewable energy and Five Year Plan for Energy Transition. 

These plans have boosted wind energy consumption in China to reach 20% by 2030 and consequently fueled the installation of new turbines. Furthermore, Japan and India have adopted the feed-in-tariff policy to encourage investments in renewable energy projects. 

Supportive policies and initiatives to reduce environmental impact propelled the renewable energy market significantly and thus resulted in a prolific growth in the annual installation of turbines. 

The market was largely driven by the unprecedented growth in turbine installation. However, stagnant growth in global electric consumption is expected to have a negative impact on the overall industry over the forecast period. 

Technical innovation in this market led to the development of energy-efficient processes in various industries. As a result, electricity demand in the industrial sector has witnessed slow growth in developed countries including the U.S. Furthermore, the electricity demand in the residential sector grew at a slower rate than the expected rate. 

The energy industry was subjected to high costs for operations & maintenance, owing to optimistic estimation of the reliability and lifetime of turbines. However, with robust growth in the wind energy market, industry players increased their focus on the optimization of maintenance costs, through efficient tracking of failure statistics and other strategies. 

Industry players have been focusing on the improvement of operations & maintenance activities required at project sites. Emphasis on reliable and cost-effective condition monitoring techniques has increased over the past few years. Numerous companies have been implementing cutting-edge technology to resolve failure issues.

Advanced tools are being designed to estimate long-term annual average costs and downtime of turbines. Such tools aid in identifying components that are on the verge of dysfunction and preventive measures are taken in advance to avoid unexpected failure.

Application Insights

The global wind turbine operations and maintenance industry has been segmented into onshore and offshore. The onshore segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 91.2% in 2022. It is driven by advances in technology, regulatory frameworks & policies, initiatives for cost reduction, and environmental concerns. The worldwide rising awareness about climate change and the necessity to transition to sustainable and clean energy sources has led to a surge in wind energy installations, thereby propelling the market.

The offshore segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period. Offshore turbines offer higher efficiency than their onshore counterparts; however, they incur higher installation costs, and consequently, operating costs increase. The offshore sector faces various challenges owing to remote locations in the sea, with lower accessibility for repair and maintenance and high installation costs, thereby impacting the segment growth.

Major players such as the U.S., France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and India focus on onshore projects for renewable energy generation, owing to the higher costs of offshore sites. Various countries in Central & South America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa solely depend on onshore projects to meet the demand.

Europe holds the predominant position in the offshore market. Prominent countries in the European offshore market include the UK, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Ireland, and Norway. Several countries have initiated efforts to enhance their offshore capacity due to higher yields. For example, they are deploying larger turbines to reduce overall costs.

The U.S. started its first commercial offshore project in 2015. In addition, China and Japan have been focusing on increasing their offshore capacity. Furthermore, European countries such as the UK, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, France, and the Netherlands have approved numerous offshore projects, therefore projecting significant growth of the offshore segment during the forecast period.

Regional insights

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 42.6% in 2022, owing to a significant increase in annual installations in China. China accounted for the highest annual installation of 23 GW across the globe. Furthermore, the country is expected to push its offshore capacity, thereby positively impacting the industry growth.

Global wind turbine operations and maintenance market share and size, 2022

The market in Japan, South Korea, and Southeast Asian countries is expected to grow at an exponential rate over the forecast period. Emphasis on reducing environmental footprint has motivated the government in developing countries to aid wind farms. This, in turn, is likely to propel the market in Asia Pacific over the forecast period.

Europe was the second-largest market for wind turbine operations and maintenance in 2022. The region dominated the offshore installation category and also incurs high operations & maintenance costs. The UK has the highest offshore capacity, globally, with Germany, Spain, France, Italy, and Denmark being the other key contributors in Europe.

Central & South America is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 17.4% during the forecast period. The market is driven by a combination of economic, environmental, and policy-related factors. The increasing energy demand, cost competitiveness of wind power, job creation potential, climate change mitigation efforts, an abundance of wind resources, environmental regulations, renewable energy targets, government incentives and support, and power purchase agreements all contribute to the growth and development of the industry in the region 

Central & South America and the Middle East are projected to witness exceptional growth over the next few years. South Africa emerged as a key player in the wind energy market over the past few years and the trend is expected to continue over the forecast period. The country has further planned to upscale its wind projects in the near future.
