17-May-2022 | Zion Market Research

The Wave and Tidal Energy Market was worth around USD 428.5 million in 2021 and is estimated to grow to about USD 2,277.02 million by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 32.1 percent over the forecast period. The report analyzes the Wave and Tidal Energy Market drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the Wave and Tidal Energy Market.

The energy derived from the ocean or sea waves is known as wave energy. It is also referred to as ocean energy or sea wave energy, and it is utilized for water desalination, electricity generation, water pumping, and a variety of other jobs. Tidal energy is a type of hydropower that uses tide energy to generate electricity. A primary market driver is the urgent need to replace present energy sources, such as gas, oil, and coal. The market is also being bolstered by increased funding from the public and private sectors, primarily for gaining control of energy security, job creation, economic positioning, and managing changing climatic conditions. In addition, greater investment and new rules from local governments are encouraging technology innovators to bring energy-converting gadgets to market as soon as possible. The global wave and tidal energy industry have the biggest demand due to increased project expansion in all nations, which has resulted in a substantial reduction in the cost of electricity. Both forms of energy are still in the early stages of technological development. This gives new entrants a lot of room to enter the market by introducing new and improved technologies. Furthermore, prospective market changes in nations such as Canada, France, Scotland, Belgium, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and South Korea are expected to boost ocean technology in the near future. However, substantial capital expenditure and the cost of producing energy from these sources are projected to stymie the expansion of the wave and tidal energy industries in the coming years.
