The global wind tower market was valued at $26,140.5M in 2015, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% during 2016-2022. The factors driving the growth of the global market include the increased government support for wind power projects, increasing global wind power capacity and need for geopolitical energy security. The wind tower market in Middle East and Africa, and Latin America is still at its nascent form. Currently, there are very few large scale wind farms, as compared to other regions across the globe. However, several countries across Latin America and Africa are framing regulations to reduce their dependency on petroleum fuels and increase production of renewable energy. This is creating abundant opportunities for the manufacturers of wind towers for their capacity and geographical expansion. The Middle East and Africa wind tower market is anticipated to witness the fastest growth (25.4% CAGR) during the forecast period, to reach $1,342.9M by 2022.
Based on application, offshore segment is anticipated to witness the highest growth (17.0% CAGR) in the global wind tower market. The global offshore wind tower market is primarily driven by increasing offshore wind capacity, and the number of offshore wind projects in the North Sea, Baltic Sea and Atlantic Ocean. Europe held the major share in the global offshore wind tower market.
In 2015, Asia-Pacific held the largest share in the global wind tower market. The major reasons behind the growth of the wind tower market in the region are high energy demands in the region and high growth in the wind energy industry. China dominated the Asia-Pacific as well as global wind tower market. The total wind power capacity installed in China was 75.3 GW in 2012, which increased to 114.6 GW in 2014.
