This new IHS study examines the strategies of leading and emerging turbine manufacturers, the competitive positioning of supply chain players - active in the bearings, blades,gearboxes, generator and power converter segments, and the challenges they face going forward. Global Wind Turbine Supply Chain Strategies: 2012-2025 analyzes key aspects of the turbine market and including technology trends, system pricing, order flow, product strategies, and production facility expansions.
Annual expenditures for operations and maintenance (O&M) services in the U.S. wind industry are expected to double from just under $3 billion in 2012 to nearly $6 billion in 2025. O&M's share of annual U.S. wind expenditures is expected to increase from 12 percent to 29 percent over the same period. IHS EER's new study is your guide to understanding the growth, opportunity, and competition emerging within the burgeoning US wind O&M market.
Offshore wind is increasingly faced with pressure to deliver capacity on a large scale while proving it is capable of reducing costs prior to projects in deeper waters, further from shore become the norm. During this 'make or break' window, the industry will either have had to position itself for sustained build-out, or face a rapid decline as a non-competitive technology. IHS's new study offers a comprehensive analysis of the global offshore wind market, presenting key challenges and emerging trends along the industry value chain, including project development, component supply chain and wind turbine manufacturers.
Despite global wind's impressive installation level of 39 GW in 2010, the industry continues to restructure as it seeks to adjust to a sustained demand slump in some regions. Particularly in the US and parts of Europe, order drops and capacity spillover have challenged turbine vendors to match manufacturing capacity with real demand. Simultaneously, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are diversifying their geographical and, in many cases, their technological footprints. IHS EER's new market study provides the most current analysis available of global wind turbine markets, including the strategies of leading and emerging turbine manufacturers, the competitive positioning of these players in the global market, and the challenges they face going forward.
The global wind turbine market continues to undergo structural shifts along the supply chain due to a significant drop in wind turbine orders in mature markets. The resulting overcapacity has implications across the supply chain, challenging component manufacturers, whose strategies were defined in an era of growth and surging demand. IHS EER's new study analyzes wind turbine component market trends within the context of the global wind turbine industry, focusing on each of the main components: blades, bearings, gearboxes, towers, generators, and power converters.
The US wind market faces a continued period of stagnation as a result of low natural gas prices, transmission constraints, and federal policy uncertainty. US wind installations dropped 50% in 2010 versus 2009, representing the greatest drop in year over year installations since 2004. Over the next four years, US wind markets are expected to average just over 6 GW per year. IHS EER's new US wind market study provides thorough, objective analysis of US wind energy market challenges, prospects, and competitive activities across the region.
The Asia Pacific region will account for at least 44% of total megawatts added globally through 2025, adding an average of 22 GW of grid-accessible capacity annually. This exponential demand has encouraged local OEMs to scale up their sales strategies, giving rise to a flood of local manufacturing investments in China, India, and South Korea-both by aspiring domestic players and by entrenched global OEMs. This unique study from IHS EER analyzes Asian wind turbine supply on a regional and global level, providing context for a broader assessment of foreign market entrance strategies and evaluating the current and future positioning of Asian OEMs abroad.
The offshore wind sector is on the verge of a booming growth period, particularly in Europe, although projects and markets are clearly maturing in Asia and North America. Over 102 GW of growth is expected globally between 2010 and 2025, with Europe accounting for an overwhelming 71% of this growth. Several key developments have taken place in 2010 that indicate the sector has overcome a crucial threshold period and is gearing up for industry-scale build-out in the years to come. IHS EER's study provides strategic market intelligence and long-term benchmarking for those competing in or looking to enter global offshore wind energy markets.
Latin American markets are relatively immature: wind resources are plentiful and barely tapped in the face of an urgent need for added generation capacity. Governments show support for renewable energy, but this has failed to turn into a transparent framework in most countries. Local developers' lack of experience can hinder industry growth by underestimating costs and creating a nebulous pipeline of non-economical projects. IHS EER's study provides strategic market intelligence on Latin American wind energy markets, analyzing market environments, development competition, and turbine supply for each.
