Research and Markets Announce The World Offshore Wind Market Report 2011-2015

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “The World Offshore Wind Market Report 2011-2015” report to their offering.

The new edition of The World Offshore Wind Market Report examines the current and future prospects, technologies and markets for the offshore wind energy sector. It is the definitive report of the sector, used by investment banks, manufacturing and installation contractors and departments of government worldwide.

Major market growth underway:

Annual installations in 2010 are in excess of 1GW for the first time. Over the five year period to 2015 more than 11GW of new capacity will be installed. Offshore wind is forecast to see 38 billion of Capex in the coming five year period. By 2015 annual Capex will be in excess of 12 billion. Whilst Europe has been the hot-spot of activity to date, we expect activity off China to grow rapidly with the country potentially challenging the UK and Germany as market leader by the end of the decade.

Technology and market dynamics:

The World Offshore Wind Market Report provides a comprehensive and fully illustrated review of technologies employed in both existing and future projects including turbines, foundations, cables, substations and their associated installation methods. The report provides analysis of the impact of current and new technologies on the industry and identifies the key players in the business. Key industry issues are discussed in detail to assess the relative impact of factors such as costs, market mechanisms, contracting, financing and supply chain capability.

Unique market forecasts:

Using the same bottom up modelling process adopted for other reports in this series, the new report presents a five year market forecast for activity within the 2011-2015 period. Five years historic data is included for comparison. The analyst has ten years experience in market modelling of the offshore wind industry and has maintained a comprehensive in-house database of projects throughout this time. Each proposed offshore wind farm worldwide is assessed in-house and has model unique and detailed market information for each. All forecasts are based upon individual projects rather than estimations. The report provides forecasts of annual Capex and installed capacity split by country, plus numbers, size and type of turbines, foundations, cables and substations. Additionally, charts show market requirements for installation, operations and maintenance vessels.
