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 Nuclear Decommissioning Market 2014-2018

Nuclear decommissioning is the process of dismantling a nuclear facility permanently. The nuclear decommissioning process commences once the owner decides to permanently close down the nuclear facility. It involves the removal of used nuclear fuel from the reactor, cleaning, dismantling, and disposing of all the radioactive components. The decommissioning process is completed when all radioactive wastes and components have been completely dismantled or decayed to a level such that the site can be safely reused for other purposes. Depending on different decommissioning strategies, this process can take decades. Globally, many nuclear reactors have been safely decommissioned. Nuclear decommissioning can be carried out in three ways: immediate dismantling, deferred dismantling, and entombment......
