Government all over the globe is seeking cost-effective emission-free technologies like wind and solar to meet the steadily growing demand for electricity. In order to meet the rising global need for electricity, wind energy installations are expanding globally.

Furthermore, businesses are more likely to adopt renewable energy sources, notably wind power, for electricity generation due to strict government regulations addressing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In order to achieve net-zero emissions by 2030, a number of nations have increased their wind energy construction.

  • In April 2023, GreenerTower, a wind turbine tower composed of more environmentally friendly steel, was unveiled by Siemens Gamesa. Steel plates make up about 80% of towers. In comparison to traditional steel, the new GreenerTower will guarantee that the tower steel plates will have a minimum CO2 reduction of 63%. With the same steel characteristics and quality, Siemens Gamesa's new stringent certification procedure will confirm that only a maximum of 0.7 tonnes of CO2-equivalent emissions are allowed per tonne of steel.

Wind Tower Market Trends

  • Favourable Renewable Energy Policies and Increased Wind Energy Investment to Drive Market Growth

Wind tower market CAGR is being driven by favourable renewable energy policies and rising wind energy investment. As environmental rules become more stringent, the power generation industry is being pushed to transition to cleaner, more environmentally friendly energy sources. Several countries throughout the world are working on improving renewable energy power generation in order to lessen their reliance on conventional sources of energy such as fossil fuels. Wind, solar, and other renewable energy expenditures have steadily increased in recent years.

For instance, In the United States, the Federal Business Energy Investment Tax Credit (ITC), a corporate tax incentive, permits owners of new wind energy systems to obtain tax credits worth 30% of the facility's value. Such mentioned impulses will allow the wind energy sector to grow rapidly internationally. As a result, the product demand is likely to rise.

Furthermore, the market is expected to be driven by the transition towards decarbonizing power generation through the adoption of eco-friendly and clean energy technology. Various governments ensure that renewable energy goals are met by continually installing renewable energy systems in collaboration with major private entities. As a result of environmental legislation, many businesses are turning to renewable energy sources for power generation, particularly solar and wind power. This is anticipated to boost market growth.

According to the International Energy Association (IA), wind electricity generation will reach a new high of 273 TWh in 2021. This was 45% faster than in 2020, and it was the fastest among all renewable energy technologies.

Wind Tower Market Segment Insights:

Main gearbox, yaw gearbox, and other types are included in the Wind Tower Market segmentation based on type. Market dominance was held by the yaw gearbox category.

Offshore wind and onshore wind power are both included in the segmentation of the Wind Tower Market depending on the application.

New and replacement installations are included in the Wind Power Tower Market segmentation.

With respect to capacity, the Wind Tower Market is segmented into 3 categories: 5mw-3mw, up to 1.5mw, and over 3mw.

  • In June 2023, Inox Wind, a developer of wind energy solutions, announced that TUV SUD in Germany granted its 3-megawatt (MW) wind tower with a booster capacity A Type Certificate. According to Inox Wind, this indicates that the turbine has satisfied the criteria for serial manufacture and commissioning. The wind turbine owned by the corporation has a 3.3 MW maximum booster capacity.

Wind Tower Type Insights

The Wind Tower Market segmentation, based on type includes main gearbox, yaw gearbox and others. The yaw gearbox segment dominated the market. In order to maximise the amount of energy generated by the wind turbine, the yaw gearbox is a precise drive system that provides optimal control of the blade. 

The components used in the yaw gearbox are produced at a cutting-edge factory, and our quality control department performs a thorough inspection to guarantee the highest quality. Having a heat treatment facility on-site eliminates the possibility of receiving inadequate heat treatment from the provider. In turn, this increases the components' lifespan.

Wind Tower Application Insights

The Wind Tower Market segmentation, based on application, includes offshore wind and onshore wind power. In 2022, the onshore category provided the highest revenue, and it is likely to continue to lead the market in the next years. This is owing to the high demand for wind power as well as the relatively inexpensive setup and maintenance costs, speedy installation, and little environmental effect of such wind farms. As a result, the IEA estimates that a total of 830GW of wind capacity will be added by 2021, with onshore systems accounting for more than 90% of that capacity.

Wind Tower Installation Type Insights

The Wind Tower Market segmentation, based on installation type, includes new and replacement. Replacement category accounted for a significant market share. Because replacements allowed a new blade to be fitted as soon as the old one was removed, the turbine experienced minimal downtime. Even a replacement might be considered inefficient in some circumstances, particularly with older wind turbines. Businesses would occasionally cut their losses and discard the entire turbine rather than fixing the root.

Wind Tower Capacity Insights

The Wind Tower Market segmentation, based on capacity, includes 5mw-3mw, up to 1.5mw, over 3mw. The 5mw-3mw segment one is now providing the most revenue in the market, and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years. This is due to the better power generation capability and reduced maintenance costs of turbines with this power rating vs others. Because of this, both public and commercial organizations are investing heavily in these turbines.

Wind Tower Regional Insights

By region, the study provides the market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. The North American wind tower market area will dominate this market, due to the rapid infrastructure expansion and due to the implementation of various offshore wind projects the wind tower market.

Further, the major countries studied in the market report are The US, Canada, German, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, China, Japan, India, Australia, South Korea, and Brazil.
