“The global floating power plant market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.11%, from 2017 to 2022”
The floating power plant market is expected to grow from an estimated USD 889.6 million in 2017 to USD 1,440.1 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 10.11%, from 2017 to 2022. The factors driving the market include increasing demand for power, coupled with the lack of power infrastructure, benefits over land based power plants (majorly as it eliminates the land acquisition related problems), and energy efficiency mandates and demand for clean energy (renewable energy source). High capital cost associated with transportation, logistics, and accessibility issues is a key restraint for the growth of the floating power plant market.

“Renewable: The fastest growing segment of the floating power plant market, by power source”
The renewable power source segment is estimated to be the fastest growing segment, due to the increasing demand for energy efficiency mandates and demand for clean energy (renewable energy source), combined with the problems related to land acquisition in relation with the construction of power plants. Further, the floating offshore wind minimizes the problems faced by the offshore wind industry, at water depths greater than 60 meters, and is expected to drive the renewable power source segment during the forecast period.

“20.1 MW–100 MW: The fastest growing segment of the floating power plant market, by capacity”
The 20.1 MW to 100 MW capacity segment is estimated to be the fastest growing segment, owing to the increase in projects for floating solar and wind. This segment is expected to account for most of the shares of the renewable power sources by 2022 and the rise in demand for clean energy would drive this segment.

“Europe: The fastest growing regional segment of the floating power plant market”
The European region is expected to be the fastest growing segment of the floating power plant industry, as the European region has the highest offshore wind potential, and the countries in the region are focusing on energy generation from renewable sources. According to the European Commission, Europe has set a target of 20% energy generation from renewable sources. Thus, the European region is expected to grow at the fastest rate.
