Global Wave Energy Market to record a CAGR of 19.3% through 2026

June 08, 2020

As per the report titled ‘Global Wave Energy Market Size study, by Technology (Oscillating Water Column, Oscillating Body Converters, Overtopping Converters), by Location ( Onshore, Near shore, Offshore), by Application (Desalination, Power Generation, Environmental Protection) and Regional Forecasts 2020-2026’, available with Market Study Report LLC, global wave energy market was worth USD 37 million in 2019 and is projected to register 19.3% CAGR through 2026.

Insufficient accessibility and continuous depletion of traditional fuels such as coal, oil, and gas, coupled with escalating demand for cleaner energy sources to curb the rising pollution levels are driving the global wave energy market growth. Energy drawn from the sea or ocean is known as wave energy, which is used for various purposes including electricity generation, pumping of water, and water desalination.

High abundance of wave energy in nature and environment friendly benefits have led to increased funding for development of power projects associated with wave energy, thereby boosting the industry growth. For instance, in 2019, The Energy Department of United states allocated a fund of USD 25 Million fund for next-gen marine energy research projects including wave energy. In the same year, European Regional Development Fund proposed USD 5.5 million investment to accelerate the development of floating technologies that can utilize offshore waves and wind for generating power in deep water locations. Beside the inflow of investments, stringent government policies regarding carbon emissions, and incentive schemes for adoption of clean energy are expected to propel the industry growth in the coming years. However, irregular nature of certain waves may negatively impact the market growth over the forecast period.
