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 Gasification Market 2015-2019

Gasification is a thermochemical process that converts hydrocarbons such as coal, petroleum, petcoke, natural gas, and biomass into simple molecules, primarily resulting in a mixture called syngas (carbon monoxide and hydrogen) by means of partial oxidation with air, oxygen, or steam. The key advantage of gasification is its ability to perform in various designs having a reduced environmental footprint as compared to combustion technologies. There are several gasifier designs and operating conditions. The most vital component of the gasification process is the gasifier, a vessel in which the feedstock reacts with air or oxygen at high temperatures. The carbon monoxide and hydrogen ratio depends on the hydrogen and carbon content of the feedstock and the type of gasifier. TechNavio's ana......

Solar PV Market in Asia 2015-2019

PV is a method of generating electricity through the conversion of solar radiation using semiconductors that exhibit the PV effect. PV power generation uses solar panels composed of several solar cells containing a PV material. Materials presently used for PV include mono-c-Si, poly-c-Si, a-Si, CdTe, and copper indium gallium selenide/sulfide. The conventional way of power generation through fossil fuels is continuously depleting and also causes environmental damage. Therefore, eco-friendly renewable methods of power generation such as PV have become popular over the last decade. PV power is generated by the mono-c-Si method, which is the most efficient and least expensive approach. PV power is a good option because its source, solar energy, is free, and even the maintenance cost is neglig......
