Report on Global Wind Turbine Value Chain Available has added Global Wind Turbine Value Chain – Production, Market Share, Competitive Landscape and Market Size to 2020 industry research report to the energy and power section of its online business intelligence library.

According to the wind power market and wind turbine industry report, more blades are being outsourced than are being produced in-house, Asian tower manufacturers pose threat to American counterparts and Europe as well as Asia-Pacific combined generate more than 90% of global wind power generators. The research provides global data and information analysis for wind power market, wind turbine, wind turbine rotor blade market, wind turbine gearbox industry, the wind turbine tower as well as generator markets.

The report provides an overview of the global wind power market, examining major drivers and restraints and global wind power capacity and generation data broken down by region, country, and segment (onshore/offshore). It also looks at the wind turbine market, covering global average turbine size, price, market size, and manufacturer share in terms of installations.

The report discusses the global wind turbine value chain, examining the key components of a wind turbine: the rotor blade, gearbox, tower, and generator. It analyzes the production, cost, market size and major trends for each component, as well as major companies’ competitive landscapes. The report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research, and in-house analysis by an expert team of industry experts.

This wind turbine market research gives data and information on installed capacity and generation data for the 2001-2020 periods, broken down by region, country, and segment. Analysis of market forces in the wind power industry as well as information on global average turbine size and price, and market size and share if provided. Competitive landscape of major component manufacturers in the wind turbine value chain; Cost analysis, market size and production for rotor blades, gearboxes, and generators; Cost analysis and market size for wind turbine towers as well as analysis of major trends affecting key wind turbine components are covered in the report.

The global wind farm operations and maintenance (O&M) market size is predicted to reach USD 9.84 billion in 2016, with China contributing USD 1.77 billion, or 18% of global market according to another research report titled China Wind Farm Operation & Maintenance (O&M) Industry Report, 2014-2016. Europe, as the world’s largest wind farm O&M market and the first to develop such business, takes up more than 50% of global wind farm O&M market. In 2013, German wind farm O&M market equalled to EUR 1.2 billion, or 44% of entire European market, followed by Spain (28%) and Britain (13%). The expansion of Western European wind farm O&M market will be propped up mainly by offshore wind farms in Germany, Britain and Italy; Poland will stand out from the emerging Eastern European wind farm O&M markets with significant growth.

As China started wind farm construction on a large scale from 2009, most of wind turbines have come out of warranty from about 2012. The number of wind turbines coming out of warranty stood at 6,769 in 2013, and is expected to total 12,182 in 2014. A surge in the number of wind turbines out of warranty period will greatly promote the development of the Chinese wind farm O&M market, which saw an annual average growth rate of 142%, and is expected to be worth about USD 1.4 billion in 2014.
