We’ve used multiple factors to determine the top 10 wind turbine manufacturers.. The power generated from a wind turbine is measured in Megawatts (MW).. This is because Vestas has an accumulative MW of 133,930 but has been around for 77 years.. Another way to measure the performance of a wind turbine manufacturer is by how many turbines they install annually.. We’ve looked at which essential factors have influenced the manufacturers’ rankings.

A major boost in the investment is expected due to an increase in the capacity of installations, led by countries such as China, which is also the world’s largest wind energy market by capacity.. Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest wind turbine market in terms of cumulative installed wind power capacity with nearly 50% share in 2019, followed by Europe and North America with a share of 33% and 20%, respectively.. Here is a comprehensive look at our wind turbine companies list, breaking down the top companies based on their installed capacities.. So far, Vestas has installed over 60,000 turbines, which has a total joint capacity of 82 GW, across 76 countries.. Chinese wind turbine supplier Goldwind remains the third largest in the world in 2022.. By late 2019, Goldwind has installed a total capacity of over 50GW wind turbines in more than 20 major countries around the world.. With over 25,000 wind turbines installed globally, GE is one of the world’s leading wind turbine suppliers.. Envision Energy , based in Shanghai, China, is one of the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers, it also provides energy management software, and energy technology services.. The company has installed over 2400 wind turbines globally and its software is used in over 6,000 wind turbines in North America, Europe, Latin America, and China.. MingYang Wind Power Group is the largest private wind turbine company in China and one of the largest wind turbine manufacturers in the world.. The company is mainly engaged in the wind energy and solar energy sectors, ranking the 37th among the World Top 500 New Energy Enterprises and the 1st in offshore wind innovation.. Its products are mainly 1.5 MW, 2.XMW and 3.XMW wind turbines.. Its wind power division HZ Wind operates a complete supply chain in wind power sector including components manufacturing, Wind turbine R&D and manufacturing, Offshore wind project construction and installation, offshore transmission line installation..

The top-10 turbine OEMs in China’s wind market has been in the path of market expansion in the past decade.. Continuously, the wind turbine market has been consolidating, with the top players taking more.. 2019 witnessed a further consolidation in terms of added wind capacity, BNEF’s 2019 Chinese turbine OEM ranking clearly indicates.. [The ranking is about turbine makers’ incremental installed capacity in China last year.]. The market development in China only parallels the global market trend where the big fish eat the smaller and the leaders take more stakes.. The market shares of top-3, top-5, top-7, and top-10 players all increased in 2019 compared to 2018, a solid indication of the market consolidation direction.. the true battle is really among the 3rd-7th placed turbine makers, who registered the most aggressive market share increase and year-on-year installed capacity growth.. And after the installation dash when the market demand would slump, companies with safer financial structure would survive the “dip”—and right now the three appear to be on a solid debt/equity structure.. United Power is Not Doing That Good: the OEM owned by China Datang and China Energy Investment Corp (CEIC)—world’s largest power and wind utility—has dropped from 4th all the way to 8th in a shocking fashion.. In its heydays (2012-2015), United Power ranked 2nd and was once regarded as one of the decisive players in the wind market.. In the past decade, the wind market witnessed the burst of Sinovel’s ambition and the gradual slidings of many others–United Power and XEMC Wind (Xiantan Electric Machinery Corp Wind) are the most recent cases.. We expect that in the coming demand dip, smaller OEMs will further lose ground to the leading players, as the demand slump change the financing perspective for the smaller firms.

– Siemens drops one position to global No.. – Gamesa maintains its sixth-place position due to strong performance in Latin America and India, despite installing only 55 MW in its Spanish home market last year.. Navigant says Sinovel continued to suffer at home during 2013 and dropped to No.. Eight of the top 15 in 2013 are Chinese vendors.. The size of turbine supplied in the world’s two largest wind power markets, the U.S. and China, was 1,841 kW and 1,719 kW, respectively.. – The size of the global direct-drive market reached 28.1% of all new wind capacity installed last year, an increase from 19.5% in 2012.. The report says more than 314 GW of onshore wind requiring service and maintenance was installed by the end of 2013, representing 98% of global wind turbine installations.. Despite this report’s lower growth forecast for offshore wind, Navigant expects the European offshore wind market to remain stable and the Asian offshore market to steadily ramp up toward the end of the five-year forecast period.. – Although a decline is anticipated in some established European markets, growth in emerging countries in Latin America and Africa, as well as a growing offshore market, is expected to redress the balance.. According to the report, the global wind industry added 36,134 MW in 2013, the first time in eight years that the sector has installed less in a given year than the year before.. – China regained the title of the world’s largest annual market, with 16,088 MW of new wind power installed in 2013.

Factors such as increasing demand for renewable energy sources, especially wind power in the power generation mix, efforts to reduce the reliance on fossil fuel-based power generation, and regulations on energy efficiency are expected to drive the wind turbine market during the forecast period.. The offshore segment is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period, owing to increased developments and investments in offshore wind energy projects worldwide.. The wind turbine market report includes:. As energy demand is rising, major countries and companies are turning toward the adoption of renewable energy sources, especially wind energy, as they can provide clean energy.. The adoption of offshore wind energy with advanced technologies attracted many countries and companies for high investments.. The growing size of the wind turbines has helped lower the cost of wind energy, indicating that it is economically competitive with fossil fuel alternatives in some locations such as the United States, Germany, France, etc.. Therefore, these recent trends are expected to drive the offshore wind turbine market during the forecast period.. India holds the fourth-largest wind power installed capacity globally, with nearly 38 GW in 2020.

Current focus Growing the after-sales service business. According to Make Consulting, it is now ranked fourth in the world, behind Siemens, Vestas and GE, having taken a 9.2% share of the global wind turbine market in 2014, installing just over 4.8GW.. Of the 17,600 Goldwind turbines operating around the world at the end of last year, 12,300 were 1.5MW machines.. Last year it installed just over 4GW.. It forecasts total German onshore wind installations of 4.2GW this year after a record 4.75GW in 2014.. By the end of 2014, Enercon had installed a total of 16,867MW in Germany and 20,284MW in export markets.. If the wind industry were one big wind turbine, United Power would be the alternator.. The projects will use 1.5MW turbines provided by United.. Key concern Ageing product range. Key concern Slow growth in China's offshore plans. That machine has since been developed into a 6.15MW unit and is now being tested with a 152-metre rotor diameter in place of the original's 126-metre design.

Inline with this, offshore wind power companies have come into existence.. These offshore wind power companies have mastered the art of diffusing sea winds with wind turbines to balance the supply and demand of energy at global level.. Offshore wind power is an advanced strategy for creating power from wind energy by utilizing the breeze built in water bodies (ordinarily in the sea).. Hence, power produced by offshore wind power companies is higher as compared to onshore wind power.. Siemens was founded in 1 October, 1847 in Germany.. Siemens Healthineers, Siemens Mobility etc., are the major subsidiaries.. Siemens is one of the world’s biggest technology companies.. Vestas delivers sustainable energy solutions.. Its wind turbines are considered to be the most reliable in the market of top offshore wind power companies.. It is one of the oldest members of the offshore wind power companies’ segment.. Senvion is a German Wind Turbine manufacturer company founded in 2001.. It uses its value-added technology to build the most advanced offshore wind turbines for producing power.. Gamesa Technology was founded in 1976.. It uses industry-leading solutions for offering onshore and offshore technology systems.

Over the last decade countries like China, USA, Germany, and India have come up as wind powerhouses and increased the production of electricity by wind energy which in turn has helped the wind turbine blade market to grow.. On the basis of material, the wind turbine blade market can be segmented into carbon fiber, glass fiber, and other material.. On the basis of application, global wind turbine blade market is segmented by onshore and offshore locations.. The major market driver for the global wind turbine blade market is the increasing demand for clean energy around the world.. Many Countries are now shifting towards the sources of clean energy.. The key market restraint for the global wind turbine blade market is the high cost of installation of the wind turbine.. China has the largest installed capacity of wind energy and has over the one-third capacity of the world.. China has the world’s largest onshore wind farm.. The USA has the second-largest installed capacity and houses 6 of the world’s 10 largest onshore wind farms.. Germany stands third in the production of wind energy and has the world’s largest offshore wind facility.. Spain, UK, France, and Italy are ranked fifth, sixth, seventh and tenth respectively amongst the world’s largest wind energy producer.. Sometimes production exceeds the demand in few European countries which has enabled export of renewable energy.. Middle-East and Africa have the largest potential for wind energy installations.. It is expected to increase the installed capacity of Mexico by 800 MW to 1.2 GW.
