Global Wind Power Market, Forecast to 2025
$100 Billion a Year of Global Investment Forecast as Wind Becomes Increasingly Competitive with Conventional Fuels
  • The global wind power market is driven by national governments' push to improve energy security, and in particular, to reduce coal consumption due to growing concerns about climate change and air pollution. The global wind power market has achieved exceptionally high growth rates over the past few years. More than half of the world’s wind power capacity has been added over the past five years.

    By the end of 2016, more than 80 countries installed wind farms and about 26 countries—representing every region—with more than 1 GW in operation. This study provides a comprehensive overview of the global wind market (onshore and offshore). The global wind power market had yet another record-breaking year. By end of 2016, more than 54 GW of new installed capacity was added, bringing the global cumulative capacity to about 487 GW.

    The base year for the study is 2016, while forecasts have been provided from 2017 to 2025. The global wind power market is expected to reach a cumulative installed capacity of 1,000 GW by the end of 2025, with Asia-Pacific as the dominant region. The offshore wind market is expected to grow at a much faster pace, while the onshore wind market is expected to progress slowly.
