The need for clean, sustainable power sources to fuel the economic growth globally is increasingly being met with energy generation with wind power. The trend is expected to also be continuing in the future. The market is increasingly driven by the competitive pricing, energy security, and price stability. Increasing demand of lightweight materials with high efficiency has driven the growth of composite materials in the wind energy market. Growing new installations of wind turbines, increased size of blades and increasing use of composites in other turbine components such as nacelle and hub are expected to increase the demand for composite materials resulting in the growth of wind turbine composite materials market.
Composite materials endure its control on various global markets including the wind energy market. The material delivers higher stability, reliability and increased life of the objects due to which it holds a very high impact on different global markets. Composites are of great importance in the manufacturing of wind turbine rotor blade which is the one of the critical component of overall wind turbine structure. With the continuous increment in the length of rotor blades for raising the wind turbine output is providing growth prospects to the global wind turbine composite materials market.
Glass fiber is the largest consumed composite material in the wind turbine manufacturing. The wind turbine blade is witnessing the largest demand for the composite materials. The continued growth in the wind energy demand and its succeeding production is significantly responsible for the growth of global wind turbine composite materials market.
Wind Turbine Composite Materials Market: Drivers & Restraints
The global wind turbine composite materials market is expected to grow due increasing demand from wind energy sector owing to the positive growth prospects in the concerned market. The market augmentation is further supported by the supportive economic and environmental factors raising the demand for the composite materials in the wind energy market.
