Wind Turbine Generator Market By Type (Synchronous, Asynchronous), By Capacity (Less than 3 MW, 3 MW – 7 MW, More than 7 MW), By Deployment (Onshore, Offshore) - Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Landscape, 2019 – 2027


Wind energy is one of the cheapest forms of energy source. Depletion of conventional energy sources and their ill effects are causing serious problem to environment. Countries of the world are reducing their over-dependence on fossil fuel and shifting towards renewable energy sources like wind. In the long run, wind energy will help to reduce CO2 emission, a gas responsible for depleting ozone layer and thereby climate change. Commitment of countries of the world to increase their share in renewable energy and financial aid from governments has helped to grow the market in 2018. 

Moreover, players are more focused on value based creation such as hybrid solution and ease of integration and power on demand. This has helped to reduce the losses along with higher and steadier output. It has also made the hybrid solutions more cost efficient. In addition, digitalization of operation and management of wind turbines further increases its efficiency, thereby supporting the market growth.

Onshore Deployment Captures Largest Market Share

Onshore deployment of wind turbine is cheaper and safer as compared to offshore installations. Moreover, offshore technology is yet to be fully developed and requires higher investment compared to onshore deployment. Also, only few players have the technology of offshore/floating wind turbines, further reducing the offshore market share. Risk of wear and tear is more in offshore than onshore turbine which further adds up to the maintenance cost of turbine. In case of failure, longer time is required to fix the problem. This has increased the cost of energy (LCOE) from offshore. Therefore, players are more focus towards onshore wind turbine which are simpler to build and operate and supply energy at a lower cost. In 2018, onshore segment accounted for over 85% of total deployed capacity of the world.

Asia Pacific Gathered Over 40% Market Share in 2018

In Asia Pacific, China is the major contributor to the market growth. Stable auctioning policy of China has helped the country to install approximately 22 GW of capacity in a single year. In addition to this, India has contributed about 5% to the global share of installed capacity. High demand of electricity from population and explosion of pollution in the cities have further drives the transition of the Asian countries towards renewable sources like wind energy. This has driven the market of wind turbine generator in 2018.
