The global offshore wind energy market was valued at $2,727 thousand in 2016, and is expected to reach $11,334 thousand by 2023, registering a CAGR of 19.4% from 2017 to 2023. Offshore wind energy is used by numerous countries globally to harness the energy of consistent and strong winds, which are specifically around the oceans. Offshore winds are more uniform and process higher speed than on land. The energy produced from wind is directly proportional to the cube of the wind speed. Thus, wind speeds of only a few miles per hour are able to generate a considerably larger amount of electricity.

The market has witnessed significant growth opportunities globally, owing to increase in demand for electricity processes and rise in government expenditures. Moreover, increase in inclination of consumers toward efficient and easy renewable sources of energy further boosts the market growth. However, high initial costs associated with offshore wind energy systems and effects of offshore wind farms on marine animals are the factor anticipated to hamper the market growth. The global offshore wind energy market is segmented based on geography into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
