“\”Global Direct Drive Wind Turbine Market Research Report – Forecast to 2022\””
Global Direct Drive Wind Turbine Market by Capacity (Less than 1MW, 1MW to 3MW, More than 3MW), by Technology (Electrically Excited Synchronous Generator and Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator), by Region (Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Rest of World) – Forecast to 2022

Market Research Future (MRFR) forecasts that the global direct drive wind turbine market is expected to grow phenomenally at approximately 11.5% CAGR during forecast period (2017-2022). The wind being one of the cleanest sources of power generation, is used to generate electricity by wind turbines. Increasing demand for renewable energy across the globe has majorly attributed to the growth of the direct drive wind turbine market. Moreover, depleting fossil fuel reserves, increasing environmental sensitivity, low cost of wind power generation and financial support from governments across the globe all have a knock-on effect on the global market size.

However, the only issue the market faces is the fact that the initial capital investments are on the higher side. But on the other hand, major revolutions have taken place in the recent years towards the turbine design and installation techniques, which have considerably reduced the initial capital investment cost to a fairly reasonable extent. This factor can have a positive knock-on effect on the market in the coming years.

Market Segmentation

The global direct drive wind turbine market is segmented on the basis of capacity, technology and region.

The capacity is sub-segmented into less than 1MW, 1MW to 3MW, and more than 3MW. While on the basis of technology, the market is segmented on the basis of electrically excited synchronous generator and permanent magnet synchronous generator. The permanent magnet synchronous generator technology is anticipated to experience a significant growth over the forecast period due to the increase in offshore activities.

Regional Analysis

The global market for direct drive wind turbines is geographically spread across Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, and the Rest of World.

Globally, Europe has secured the top position and is predicted to retain its position throughout the forecast period due to its impressive streak of renewable energy sources usage. Moreover, the massive contribution from countries such as Spain, United Kingdom (U.K), France and Ireland combined with favorable government regulations has buoyed the market growth in the region.

The growth in Europe market is followed by Asia-Pacific owing to the adoption of gearless wind turbines in the emerging economies such as China and India with growing energy needs in the region. Furthermore, the region observes market growth on account of continuous capacity additions to the existing industry participants. Also, increased awareness of renewable energy usage serves to propel the market growth. in addition, large number of plant managers focus on enhancing operational efficiency and reducing maintenance costs, which directly triggers the market growth in the region.

MRFR reports that the North America market is highly lucrative on account of installation base and revenues. Constant technological advancements, product development and mergers and acquisition among well-established market players bode well with the market growth in the region. Increasing demand for low-cost, renewable source of energy is one of the major factors fueling the market growth as well.
