Published: Nov 2017 | Report Code: 58789-11-17

Electricity production using wind turbines harness wind energy at a particular location. Advanced computer modelling techniques are used to calculate wind force and the amount of electricity which can be generated from it. The wind turbines are primarily utilized to convert kinetic energy of wind into usable electrical energy. The governments actively supports the power generation from renewable sources. The electricity generation feed-in tariffs (combining the auction costs), tax holidays (tax credits) to the players venturing into wind power generation, and a leverage of preferential grant access are some of the major provisional schemes the governments are undertaking to support power generation using renewable energies. Apart from providing financial support for setting up wind farms, the governments also float schemes to attract domestic and foreign players to venture into wind power.

The additional cost for management of grid, which may result in wind variability, are usually not recognized by the generators of electricity through wind turbines. The cost of wind power is below the cost of fossil and nuclear power generation.

Global wind turbine market is segmented by region into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. In 2016, Asia Pacific led the global wind turbine market and was followed by Europe and North America. Together, the regions accounted a little more than 90% share of the market. Major wind farms globally utilize up to 7.5 MW wind turbines, for offshore operations. However, some countries from the Asia Pacific (China, Australia) and European (Germany and France) regions have projects which are expected to utilize high capacity turbines with capacity up to 15 MW, for offshore operations. The onshore wind turbines capacity ranges from 5kW to 15 MW which are under operation.

The key turbine manufacturers, developers, suppliers and service providers are, but not limited to: ACCIONA S. A, DNV-GL, Envision Energy, Iberdrola Renewables LLC, LM Wind Power, SUZLON Ltd., Vestas Wind Systems A/S, Siemens-Gamesa Renewable Energy Renewable Energy Systems Ltd., ReNew Power Ventures Pvt.

On the basis of its turbine capacity, the global wind turbine market is categorized into following segments:

  • Up to 1 MW
  • 1-3 MW
  • 3-10 MW
  • 10 MW and Above

Wind Turbine Market

A group of wind turbines is collectively termed as a wind farm. A wind farm may consists of a few wind turbines to several hundred wind turbines distributed over designated area both on onshore and offshore. The onshore wind turbines, there is high land utilization since the spacing between the individual turbines is high. The spacing between two turbines (wind mills) is majorly used for agricultural purposes. The other usage of the spacing include, utility grid connection and solar power (solar cell) combined with power generated with the wind turbines.

The approximate size of the onshore wind turbines which are manufactured today is 3 MW (2.5 – 3 MW). An approximate size of the offshore wind turbines which are manufactured today is 3.6 – 4 MW. Major wind farms globally utilize up to 7.5 MW wind turbines, for offshore operations. However, some countries from the Asia Pacific (China, Australia) and European (Germany and France) regions have projects which are expected to utilize high capacity turbines with capacity up to 15 MW, for offshore operations. The onshore wind turbines capacity ranges from 5kW to 15 MW which are under operation.

On the basis of its applications, the global wind turbine market is categorized into following segments:

  • Onshore
  • Offshore

Wind Turbine Market

The wind’s kinetic energy is utilized to run the propellers around the rotor. This rotor is connected to the wind turbine’s main shaft which spins the generator to generate electricity. Wind power is considered as a proven alternative to conventional fossil fuels. It is abundant, renewable, extensively distributed (onshore-offshore), uncontaminated, no greenhouse gas emissions during operation.

A group of wind turbines is collectively termed as a wind farm. A wind farm may consists of a few wind turbines to several hundred wind turbines distributed over designated area both on onshore and offshore. The onshore wind turbines, there is high land utilization since the spacing between the individual turbines is high. The spacing between two turbines (wind mills) is majorly used for agricultural purposes. The other usage of the spacing include, utility grid connection and solar power (solar cell) combined with power generated with the wind turbines.

The construction of large wind farms in water bodies (lakes, seas, and oceans) to generate electric power are typically termed as offshore wind turbines. Some of the major advantage of offshore installations are: the availability of most powerful wind forces, the fuel (wind) is uninterrupted and continuous, and the net power generation is continuous than land based wind power projects.

Based on geographical distribution, the global wind turbine market is segmented into following categories

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • Denmark
    • Portugal
    • Germany
    • Ireland
    • U.K.

Wind Turbine Market

Global wind turbine market is segmented, by Region, into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa regions. In 2016, the global wind turbine market was led by Denmark, the U.K., China, the U.S., Germany, and India, France, Turkey and the Netherlands. The Asia Pacific region had the highest number of new installations specifically in China, India, Japan, and India. The region is expected to have wide outreach for the forecast period.

Wind power has great benefits from government supported schemes. The type of support varies country to country and region to region. Feed in tariffs, feed in renewable portfolio standards (combining the auctions), and energy operation & creation tax credits are the provision schemes that are set up. Besides financial support, wind power has the leverage of preferential grant access globally. The additional cost for management of grid are usually not recognized by the generators of electricity through wind turbines. The cost of wind power is below the cost of fossil and nuclear power generation.

By 2025, the Asia Pacific, North America and Europe would be the high growth regions. Asia Pacific, with countries like China and India, is expected to have the highest market outreach than any other region. The recently concluded Paris Climate Change Conference has mandated energy generators to look into renewable sector for power needs. This has already made an impact on the electricity generation cost. Over all electricity generation cost reduction is expected to happen with Asia Pacific and other regions to meet the carbon emissions standards. Thus the wind turbine market is expected to witness high growth, globally, for the forecast period.
