Analyst Insight: Wind Turbine OEM Ranking and Market Share Analysis

Global Wind Energy Insights

The global wind industry installed 60.7 GW in 2019, up substantially from the 51.4 GW installed in 2018 despite the challenges that the wind market that has faced in recent years. These challenges include many mature country markets eliminating or reducing subsidies and many markets shifting to competitive power contract auctions, tenders, and other wind procurement mechanisms that squeeze profit margins throughout the supply chain. Meanwhile, solar PV is an increasingly capable competitor in the clean energy arena due to its rapid cost reductions. 

Despite these challenges, the wind market is holding steady and adjusting to a new normal of intense price competition. Some markets, such as the US and China, are experiencing rapid near-term increases of capacity additions as generous policies change or phase out. Wind power is being developed not only in a greater variety of countries but also in offshore and onshore capacities. 

This report covers changes in top rankings and market share of wind turbine OEMs and country-level geographic installations by OEMs globally. This data shows which manufacturers are most active in which markets with detailed market distribution data and market share charts. This report ranks the top three to five wind turbine OEMs in each of the top 10 country markets as of 2020; furthermore, it includes the leading suppliers globally in different wind turbine size classes. This report also addresses average wind turbine size in top country markets and average wind turbine rotor diameters by turbine OEMs and by top country markets. In addition, this report provides data on the top selling wind turbines in 2020 by the Western wind turbine OEMs.
