Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) Systems Market By Type (Kites, Lifting Balloons, Drones) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2015 – 2025

Published: Aug 2017 | Report Code: 58612-08-17

Air borne wind energy (AWE) is a technique to generate electricity from wind currents with the help of rotors or turbines supported in the air without any tower installed on the ground. Airborne wind energy is a unique concept to harvest wind energy with lower setup and operating cost as compared to conventional wind turbines. Conventional wind turbines have a limitation with respect to the height of the structure and speed control. However, airborne wind energy (AWE) systems have the capabilities to tap high velocity and steady winds found above a certain altitude. In addition, this technique is more economical and efficient as compared to other conventional horizontal and vertical axis wind energy turbines in terms of energy generation and stability.

Rising carbon percent and increasing atmospheric temperature have greatly affected the atmospheric condition in the past few years. Numerous environmental organizations and government agencies across the globe have been increasingly concerned towards reducing pollution caused by the fossil fuel for energy generation. Therefore, adoption of new non-conventional energy sources such as airborne wind energy (AWE) systems has been boosted significantly in the recent times. Several developed countries including the U.S., the U.K., the Netherlands, and Germany, among others have started to harvest airborne wind energy (AWE) for power generation. In addition, multiple strategic alliances between airborne wind energy (AWE) system manufacturers and research centers have resulted in further development of pre-existing designs. Heavy investments made by many multinational companies for making the airborne wind energy (AWE) systems efficient and cost effective is one of the prime driving factor in the airborne wind energy (AWE) systems market.

Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) Systems Marke

As of 2016, the kite type dominated the overall airborne wind energy (AWE) market worldwide in terms of revenue. The usage of kites in airborne wind energy (AWE) systems is simple and an effective method for converting wind energy into useful power. Kites can tap the wind at higher altitudes and can be controlled easily when compared with other types. Major airborne wind energy (AWE) providers have been focusing on improving the current design to derive more clean energy continuously. With consistently improving designs, the demand for the kite type of airborne wind energy (AWE) systems is expected to grow significantly in the following years.

As of 2016, lifting balloon type of airborne wind energy (AWE) systems trailed the kite type in terms of revenue in the overall airborne wind energy (AWE) market. In this variant, a turbine supported by a big lifting balloon filled with inert gas is used to convert the wind energy into mechanical motion. A variety of balloons are available with different specifications and shapes to harness wind energy. Airborne wind energy (AWE) providers have been consistently working towards improving the design of balloons and accessories in order to achieve enhanced efficiency and productivity. Owing to the aforementioned factors, the market for the balloon type airborne wind energy (AWE) systems is expected to grow consistently throughout the forecast period from 2017 to 2025.

The global airborne wind energy (AWE) systems market has been segmented, on the basis of geographical regions, as per following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Rest of North America
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany

    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World (RoW)
    • The Middle East and Africa
    • Latin America

Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) Systems Marke

Europe dominated the overall airborne wind energy (AWE) systems market in terms of revenue, as of 2016. Growing need of clean and continuous energy has uplifted the overall airborne wind energy (AWE) systems in numerous countries across Europe including the U.K., the Netherlands and Germany, among others. In addition, government policies such as Roadmap 2050 have further encouraged European airborne wind energy (AWE) systems manufacturers to accelerate their work towards new AWE installations. With strong presence of multiple airborne wind energy (AWE) systems manufacturers and rising trend of non-conventional energy sources, the overall market for the airborne wind energy (AWE) systems is expected to remain strong in the European region.

As of 2016, North America trailed Europe in the overall airborne wind energy (AWE) systems market. Companies such as Google, Inc. and the U.S. Advanced Research Projects Agency have been investing heavily for the development for airborne wind energy (AWE) systems. In addition, airborne wind energy (AWE) systems developers in this region are all set to commercialize their AWE system in the next few years. Therefore, the reliance on fossil fuel for energy generation is expected to diminish with the growth in the airborne wind energy (AWE) systems in the following years in this region.
