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.

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.

Drill Collars Market in the Middle East 2015-2019

Drill collars are an essential part of the drill string. They form the lowest component of the drill string. Drill collars are heavy, thick-walled steel pipes with threaded connections at both ends. The end with an external thread is known as the male end, whereas the end with an internal thread is known as the female end. The basic purpose of a drill collar is to provide the necessary weight for drilling purposes. Drill collars are machined out of solid steel bars as per API specifications. They are manufactured from standard steel (usually plain carbon steel) or a non-magnetic alloy of steel and copper or other non-magnetic alloys. The bars of solid steel are bored from one end to the other to provide passage for drilling fluids. There are usually two types of drill collar: slick and spi......

Global Electric Transformer Market 2015- 2019

Electric transformers are special devices used to step-up and step-down voltage in transmission and distribution applications. Transformers can be divided into two types: power transformers and distribution transformers. Power transformers are used in the high voltage transmission network as voltage step up devices. They operate at full load. Distribution transformers are used to distribute electric power at low voltages. They operate at lesser loads during a major part of the day. One of the major technical differences between power and distribution transformers is that power transformers' primary winding is always connected in star and the secondary winding in delta, while distribution transformers' primary winding is connected in delta and the secondary winding in star.

Global Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Market 2015-2019

FPSO is a type of floating tank unit used by the offshore oil and gas industry to collect the oil or gas produced from nearby platforms or subsea templates, process them, and store them until the oil or gas can be offloaded onto a shuttle tanker or exported via a pipeline. These systems come in a variety of sizes, shapes, production capacities, and costs. They range from relatively small units with 30,000 bpd processing plants to mega units capable of processing more than 250,000 bpd. Most units are ship shape, but there are few cylindrical FPSOs also. Capex for an FPSO can range from less than $200 million to more than $2 billion, depending on production plant capacity, design life, operating environment, and other factors. The analysts forecast global floating production storage and o......

Global Biolubricant Market 2015-2019

The term biolubricants refers to all lubricants that are nontoxic as well as biodegradable. The rapid depletion of crude oil reserves and issues related to energy conservation and environmental protection have put an emphasis on the development of renewable, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly industrial fluids, such as biolubricants. Biolubricants have a minimum impact on human health and aquatic environment. Lubricants are a key element for industrial and transport applications and more than 95% of the lubricants market is dominated by the low-cost mineral oils. Around 30% of these mineral-based lubricants inevitably end up in the ecosystem and are harmful for environment. Hence, biolubricants being biodegradable are preferred over mineral-based lubricants in terms of environment......
