Market Scenario


Wind turbine brakes are used to hold the turbine in place and stop the rotors from moving. They are applied for maintenance operations and in extreme weather conditions where excessive wind speed may damage the turbine. Wind turbine brakes are also used to hold the turbine in place when the turbine faces mechanical failure.


Global Wind Turbine Brakes Market size is projected to reach USD 400 Million by 2026, at 7% CAGR between 2020 and 2026.   


The major factors driving the growth of the global wind turbine brakes market is the rising demand for electricity generation from wind energy and increasing government initiatives for the adoption of offshore wind for electricity generation. Furthermore, the increasing demand for sustainable electricity generation to reduce the emission of harmful gases is also expected to have a significant impact on the growth of the global wind turbine brakes market during the forecast period. The development of large-scale wind turbines has substantially boosted the installation of offshore wind projects globally.


Many major players such as ANTEC Group, Hilliard Corp, and Dellner Brakes AB are actively focusing on R&D to reduce the manufacturing costs of solar equipment to increase the adoption of off-grid solar equipment. For instance, in July 2020, Dongfang Electric Corporation announced that the company had started operations of its 10 MW wind turbine. The development is expected to have a substantial impact on the growth of the company’s market share during the forecast period.


The global wind turbine brakes market has been segmented based on application. Based on application, the global market is divided into onshore and offshore. The onshore segment is expected to hold a larger share of the market during the forecast period, owing to the increasing installations of grid-connected wind farms. However, the offshore segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period owing to the declining cost of offshore wind equipment and the technological developments of the equipment.


Global Wind Turbine Brakes Market is expected to register a 7% CAGR during the forecast period.
