Wave and Tidal Energy Market Insights:

In 2022, the wave and tidal energy market size was estimated to be around USD 0.26 billion. The wave and tidal energy market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25.0% between 2022 and 2032, from USD 0.325 billion in 2023 to USD 1.54 billion.

The global wave and tidal energy market refers to the market for energy generation from ocean waves and tidal currents. This market includes the development, production, and deployment of technologies that can convert the kinetic energy of waves and tides into usable electricity. The market is driven by factors such as increasing demand for clean energy, government support for renewable energy development, and advancements in technology for wave and tidal energy conversion.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the global wave and tidal energy market. The pandemic has disrupted supply chains, delayed project development timelines, and reduced investment in the sector.

The pandemic has caused delays in the construction and installation of wave and tidal energy projects as well as in the development of new technologies. Many projects have faced supply chain disruptions and labor shortages due to lockdowns and travel restrictions. This has led to delays in the delivery of critical components and the deployment of equipment.
