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.

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 Stationary Lead-Acid (SLA) Battery Market 2015-2019

Lead-acid batteries are rechargeable batteries, which contain lead electrodes with diluted sulphuric acid that acts as an electrolyte. Lead-acid batteries used for stationary applications are known as SLA batteries. Each cell in a typical lead-acid battery generates approximately 2 volts. Although SLA batteries have very low energy-to-weight and energy-to-volume ratios, they have the ability to supply high surge current (the maximum input current drawn by an electrical device, when turned on). This feature of SLA batteries combined with the cost competency effectiveness is driving the growth of the SLA Battery market. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global SLA Battery market to grow at a CAGR of 6.9 percent over the period 2014-2019. Covered in this Report The Global SLA Battery......

Global Power Rental Market 2015-2019

Over the past decade, the demand for power has been increasing worldwide. However, meeting the world's growing power need has become a critical challenge. Increased demand for power is mainly driven by factors such as rising population, growing income of people, and rapid industrialization and urbanization. As a result of low investments in the Power sector, governments and utility providers are unable to meet the huge demand for energy. The demand-supply gap of power in developing countries provides an opportunity for temporary power systems. These power systems are useful at the time when the demand for electricity is at its peak, when there is need for emergency power backup, and when there is a lack of power generation infrastructure. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Power R......

Renewable Energy Market in the MEA Region 2015-2019

Renewable energy is defined as a source of power generation, which comes from naturally replenished resources such as hydro, wind, solar, biomass and geothermal. Renewable energy is used as an alternative source of power generation, hot water or space heating, in motor fuels as solar cells and for off-grid power generation. Since renewable energy resources are free and abundantly available in nature, the cost of power generation is less. Moreover, renewable energy mitigates carbon emission, reduces dependency on traditional hydrocarbon oil sources, and increases energy security. The importance of renewable energy sources is growing because of increased environmental concerns and rising prices of fossil fuels. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Renewable Energy market in MEA to grow at a ......
