Small Wind Market: Future Demand, Market Analysis & Outlook to 2030

us-small-wind-marketThe global Small Wind Market size is expected to reach USD 2.54 billion by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 9.2% during the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing awareness about renewable energy along with government regulations to control growing carbon footprint is propelling the market growth. Increasing global population coupled with rising energy deficit are some of the factors anticipated to positively influence the market. In addition, the gradual reduction in per kilowatt prices along with affordable installation prices of wind turbines for electricity demand will favor the business growth.

Stringent government regulations are encouraging grid connectivity to reduce the burden on the use of non-renewable sources for electricity generation. Numerous financial and economic benefits including Feed-in-Tariffs (FiT), Production Tax Credit (PTC), and Investment Tax Credit (ITC) among others are expected to augment the market growth over the forecast period. The COVID-19 pandemic impacted several industries as they were impacted due to the lockdown imposed in many countries. As the industrial operations stopped due to the pandemic, the market experienced a significant dip in 2020 owing to the reduction in energy consumption. This was further attributed to the disruptions of the supply chain & delays or postponement of wind projects in the renewable industry.

The off-grid application segment accounted for 59.7% of the global market share in 2021. The demand for off-grid wind turbines can be attributed to the long-standing conventional methods of harnessing this energy for electrification, however, this segment is set to witness a decline due to the government initiatives launched to boost grid connectivity. Such regulatory initiatives are expected to boost the demand for on-grid small wind applications over the forecast period.

Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWT) are the preferred axis type in the global small wind market given the ease in installation coupled with affordable pricing. However, the increasing demand for Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) from a large number of consumers is expected to boost the market growth of this segment in upcoming years.
