Wind Turbine Shaft Market

Wind Turbine Shaft Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 - 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 - 2027

Market Insights on Wind Turbine Shaft covering sales outlook, demand forecast and up-to-date key trends

Wind Turbine Shaft Market: Introduction

A wind turbine generates electricity by harnessing the power of wind. A wind turbine shaft is the most central part of a wind turbine, subjected to highly dynamic loads and operating conditions. The energy from wind is converted into mechanical energy with the help of blades and rotors, which is then transferred to a generator through the gear box and shaft.

The wind turbine generally consists of two types of shafts i.e. main shaft and generator shaft. The main shaft is a low speed shaft with the turbine rotor bolted through a strong disc. The generator shaft is a high speed shaft coupled with the output shaft of the gearbox.

Wind Turbine Shaft Market: Market Dynamics

The Wind turbine shaft market is being mainly driven by growing environmental concerns, such as greenhouse gas emissions. The manufacturers are also trying to achieve cost reduction alongside trying to improve production wind turbines. Furthermore, increasing population and rapid industrialization is resulting in growing energy demand.

To meet the growing energy demand, the government across the globe is emphasizing on harnessing renewable energy, such as solar and wind energy. This is expected to lead to installation of new wind power projects, which, in turn, will generate the demand for wind turbine shafts.

Increasing adoption of offshore wind energy generation as a clean source of energy in many countries, such as China, Japan, South Korea, India, Taiwan and the U.S., is expected to create new opportunities for the growth of wind turbine shaft market. However, harsh environmental conditions require more technological advancement in terms of design and strength, resulting in higher initial setup cost.

Improving economic conditions in several parts of the world and reduction in per kWh of wind energy generation is leading to increasing adoption of wind turbines across the globe, which in turn, is expected to drive the growth of global wind turbine shaft market. However, high capital cost and high material cost of the turbine shaft may act as a restraint for the market.

Moreover, the wind power generation is facing competition from solar panels, which might pose to be a threat to the wind turbine shaft market. To reduce the setup cost of wind turbines, the manufacturers are focusing on analyzing and designing the shaft with optimal diameter and material to reduce the cost of production.

A wind turbine shaft can be made from different types of materials, such as alloy steel, aluminum and synthetic composites (like fiber glass). Over the past few years, fiber glass is gaining popularity due to its light weight and high tensile strength. With the continuous developments and improvements in the field of material science, new materials are being developed and experimentation with new materials for wind turbine shaft is in trend.
