Press Release

TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Global Wind Turbine Rotor Blade Market 2014-2018

TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Wind Turbine Rotor Blade Market : Enercon GmbH, Gamesa Corporación Tecnológica SA, LM Wind Power Holding A/S, Nordex SE, Vestas Wind System A/S, ACCIONA SA, Aeroblade SA, Dewind Co., EUROS Entwicklungsgesellschaft für Windkraftanlagen GmbH, FlexSys Inc., Guodian United Power Technology Co., Inox Wind Ltd., KM Co. Ltd., PowerBlades GmbH, Siemens Wind Power A/S, SINOI GmbH, Sinomatech Wind Power Blade Co. Ltd., Sulzon Energy Ltd., Tecnologia e Sistemas Avancados Ltda, TPI Composites Inc., Wuxi Turbine Blade Co. Ltd., Zhonghang Hui Teng Windpower Equipment Co. Ltd.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “Companies worldwide are keen on developing innovative products in the Wind Energy industry to optimize the level of output. Vendors in the market are investing in R&D to reduce the weight of the rotor blades. For instance, Siemens has manufactured a blade from glass fiber-reinforced epoxy resin and balsa wood using a patented integral blade process; this does not have seams, glued joints, or adhesives, which reduces the overall weight of the blade”

According to the report, several factors drive the growth of the Global Wind Turbine Rotor Blade market. Government support for wind energy projects is one of the most important growth drivers. In comparison to the early stages of development of the Wind Energy industry in 1991, the amount of support offered by governments across countries in recent years has been enormous in terms of policies, incentives, and subsidies.

Further, the report states that offshore wind installation will require a high level of expertise and considerable financial support as the size of the turbine depends on the depth of the water. Moreover, offshore rotor blade installation will increase the installation time and cost for the vendors. Potential risk to the environment is another challenge faced by the Global Wind Turbine Rotor Blade market.

The report also includes a discussion of the other vendors operating in this market. The other vendors in the market are

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.

Global Wind Energy O&M Market 2014-2018

O&M is crucial in any wind energy system and is still quite capital intensive. This is because the use of wind energy does not require fuel expenses; therefore, the expenditure for the equipment represents the main component cost. An adequate O&M is necessary to protect the equipment to keep them running during their expected lifetime. Good O&M practices can optimize the profitability of wind farms, thereby ultimately reducing the downtime of the turbines or leading to the extension of their lifespan. O&M also tends to be high for offshore wind energy systems compared to the terrestrial wind energy systems. This is because of the difficulty and the logistics of maintaining wind turbines in harsh marine environments. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Wind Energy O&......
