Key Market Trends

Wind Power Application to Dominate the Market

  • Wind is the fastest growing energy source, globally. The prime factor for this increase is that the cost of wind energy has dropped and continues to drop dramatically, making it more competitive each year. 
  • The technology used to manufacture wind turbine blades has significantly progressed over the past years. The decrease in the cost is highly influenced by the usage of composites in turbine blade manufacturing. 
  • As the wind energy market grows globally and blade sizes continue to increase, wind farm developers will need to more composite materials to help meet these demands.
  • Owing to the above-mentioned reasons, wind power application is likely to dominate the market studied over the forecast period.
