It is followed by Windworld (~%), Gamesa (~%), Vestas (~%), Regen (~%) and Others (~%). GST on wind turbine is set at 5% and engineering services related to wind turbine will attract 18% GST.

China

China is the largest user of wind turbines in the world constituting more than one third of the total cumulative installed capacity in 2016. Market Size on the basis of new turbine sales was estimated at USD ~ billion in 2016. Price of wind turbine was among the lowest in China. Services were estimated to generate USD ~ million. Even though it has the largest fleet of wind turbine its services revenue was not that high when compared to compared to the US and Germany.

Market for wind turbines in China is dominated by domestic companies. An estimated more than ~% of the wind turbine demand in 2016 was met by these companies. Gold wind was the market leader with ~% (~ MW) market share.

Based on Ken research estimates the market for wind turbines in China may reach cumulative installed capacity of ~ GW by the end of 2021 registering a five year CAGR of ~%.

Germany

Enercon was the leading player in German wind turbine market with share of ~% of the total cumulative installed capacity. Vestas was the second major contributor with ~% market share, Nordex contributed ~% and GE contributed ~% of the total cumulative installed capacity.

The market is expected to register a positive growth and will increase from ~ in 2016 to ~ MW in 2021 registering a five year CAGR of ~%.

USA

USA was the second largest market for Wind energy in 2016 with total cumulative installed capacity of ~ GW. A total of ~ wind turbines were installed at the end of 2016. Revenue from sale of onshore wind turbines generated USD ~ billion. Offshore wind turbines made their first contribution to the revenue in 2016. Aging turbines was the key factor for high O&M cost even though majority of the O&M is done by ISPs. It was estimated at USD ~ billion in 2016.

In North America, the US will continue its dominance with significant expected contribution coming from Mexico and Canada. Latin America, Pacific, and Middle East and Africa are expected to add the comparatively lesser capacity but growth rate will be much higher as many countries in the region have very low or no wind turbine capacity. Growth in Pacific region is expected to be slow compared to other two regions.

By Revenue: It is expected that unit cost of wind turbine per MW will register a continuous decline in future as technology improves and better efficiency and height is achieved. It is expected that USD ~ billion will be investment in 2021 for addition of new turbines. Post 2016, revenue generated from sale of wind turbine will register positive growth rate except in 2018 when it is expected that market will decline slightly by ~%. This may be caused due to decline in demand from China and falling prices of wind turbine per MW.

By Service Revenue: Revenue from services is expected to increase from USD ~ billion in 2017 to USD ~ billion in 2021. Europe will lose its dominance in the global services market by 2021. Aging turbines, rise of offshore wind turbine sector, focus on efficiency and maximum utilization will drive the growth in future. Role of in house maintenance will decline and ISPs are expected to partner with OEMs for better performance over the period of operation of turbine. In 2021, it is expected that more than 800 GW will be under O&M contracts including 35 GW in offshore wind turbine category.
