DUBLIN, October 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Global Wind Turbine Nacelle Market 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
The global wind turbine nacelle market to grow at a CAGR of 6.72% during the period 2017-2021.
Global Wind Turbine Nacelle Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increase in rotor diameter. Wind energy is highly dependent on wind speeds. The swept area of the rotor determines the maximum energy that can be harnessed by a wind turbine. Technological advances and enhancements in blade design are the main factors leading to the increase in wind turbine output and capacity. Increasing the tower height facilitates in capturing higher wind speeds and increasing power generation. By doubling the rotor size or diameter, the power output is increased by four-fold. Increasing the rotor diameter demands a taller wind tower, which also requires building wind turbine nacelles of such metallurgy that can withstand higher wind speeds and that are lighter and strong. This will give a boost to the development of nacelles with new and advanced materials.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Rise in offshore wind installations. Offshore wind energy plants have been present in small numbers until now. However, countries worldwide are investing in installing more offshore wind farms. Offshore wind farms present some inherent difficulties such as higher cost of installation, complexity, and costly maintenance operations. According to the GWEC, the global offshore installed wind capacity has steadily increased from 883 MW in 2006 to 14,384 MW in 2016. In 2016, Europe accounted for the most number of offshore installations, out of which the UK contributed 5,156 MW and Germany 4,108 MW.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Upcoming wind power technologies. Traditionally, a wind turbine comprises a wind tower upon which sits the rotor, blades, and generator to generate electricity from wind turbines. Wind speeds are not consistent across all the areas, which has led to the installation of taller wind towers. This is because at greater heights, wind blows more consistently at high speeds, thereby increasing the power output. Increasing the height of wind turbines will also add to the upfront cost, which is already a barrier in wind power generation.
