Report Description

A wind turbine rotor blade is fundamental component of a wind turbine. The rotor forms the central part of the turbine and consists of multiple rotor blades attached to a hub. The rotor blades act as a motor in the turbine and extract energy by capturing wind energy and converting it into the rotation of the hub. The most common rotor consists of a horizontal axis with three blades with a diameter ranging from 37-128 meters.

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.

Li-Ion Battery Market for Digital Cameras in Japan and APAC 2015-2019

Nowadays, most digital cameras run on Li-ion batteries. This is due to their compatibility and ability to last long. The power in these batteries is generated when ions move from a negatively charged anode to a positively charged cathode. During discharge, ions move from the anode to the cathode, releasing energy; while during charging, ions return to the anode. The charge holding capacity of a Li-ion battery deteriorates over time because of ions being trapped in the anode, which necessitates replacement of the battery. The analysts forecast Li-ion battery market for digital cameras in Japan and APAC to decline at a CAGR of (2.68%) over the period 2014-2019.
