Wind Turbine Rotor Blades Market By Material (Glass Fiber, Carbon Fiber), By Blade Length (Less Than30m, 30m - 60m, More Than 60m), By Installation (Onshore, Offshore) - Growth, Future Prospects, And Competitive Landscape, 2019 - 2027

The wind turbine rotor blades market is expected to reach US$ 45.67 Bn in 2027, growing at a CAGR of 12.64% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027. The rising threat of climate change and global warming has pushed the energy sector to transition toward renewable sources. U.N.’s Paris climate agreement of 2016 further conveyed the message of a unified global effort to enhance support through financing and technology development. Along with this, pressure from various global NGOs has triggered the renewable energy demand from sources such as wind turbines which have gone upward in recent years.

Moreover, market-based mechanisms such as auctions, tenders, and green certificates followed in Germany, France, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, and Greece were the main drivers for the new installations of wind turbines which in turn helped to grow the market of wind turbine rotor blades. Apart from this, the growing interest of companies in developing bladeless wind turbines, which will be cheaper and more silent than contemporary ones, will restrain the market in the near future. Moreover, other renewable energy sources, such as solar power, and tidal/Ocean-wave energy sources, are expected to impact the market in the coming years.

Market Snapshot

Onshore Installations Continue to Lead the Segment

New onshore installations of wind turbines reached a capacity of more than 45 G.W. in 2018. The onshore installations segment is driven by China and the U.S., collectively having more than 28 G.W. of onshore capacity installed. Production Tax Credit (PTC) of the U.S. is identified to be the main driver for increasing installations of wind turbines in the U.S. market. The new RPS policy of the U.S. states is expected to further increase the new installations in the coming future. In addition to this, Germany, India, and Brazil have also installed about 2 G.W. of wind capacity in 2018; this has helped the rotor blades market to grow further in 2018. In the global scenario, the onshore segment captures more than 85% of the market share.

Asia Pacific Garnered the Largest Market Share in 2018

The Asia Pacific market growth was led by China in 2018, accounting for over 45% of the regional market revenue. The introduction of the auction policy by China in 2018 has triggered the market upward. This has helped China to install 21.2 GW of wind capacity in a single year. In addition to this, India, Australia, and other Asian countries together installed about 3.7 GW of onshore wind capacity in 2018. In the offshore segment also, Asia Pacific installed about 1.8 GW of wind capacity in 2018. Favorable and stable government policies and the trust of investors in market growth were the main drivers for the market in 2018. Asia Pacific installed more than 50% of global wind turbine capacity in 2018.
