This industry research report identifies Cytec Solvay Group, Gurit, Teijin, Toray, and TPI Composites as the key vendors in the global wind turbine composite materials market. This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by resin type (thermosets and thermoplastics), by fiber composite (glass fiber and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global wind turbine composite materials market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global wind turbine composite materials market will grow steadily during the forecast period and post a CAGR of more than 7% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the population growth, urbanization, and growing power requirement as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Migration from the rural to urban areas has led to urbanization as well as population growth in the urban areas. Adequate support must be provided through advanced technologies, capital investments, and growth-driven policies to adjust with the demand for the growing infrastructure. While the developed economies focus on renewing aging structures, the emerging economies are constantly focusing on support structures for the sustaining the growth, subsequently fueling market growth.

This market research report identifies APAC as the largest contributor for revenue to this market throughout the forecast period. The region has several large manufacturing units in the region along with design, operations and maintenance expertise, and state-of-the-art-technology. The market is driven by factors such as the increased focus on development, energy requirement, and rapid industrialization. Additionally, the exponential growth of the population in the region which drives the need for infrastructure development, automobiles and other essentials like growing energy requirements, will also augment the market’s growth prospects in this region.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

This market consists of several large vendors and many regional vendors mainly in the APAC region. The market is witnessing surge in the entry and exit of new vendors due to the growing industrialization in developing regions. Factors such as product performance and quality, price, product availability, security of supply, and customer service along with customer-centrism, influences the level of competition in the market. To cater to the demand of the customers, the vendors are constantly innovating their product offerings.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Cytec Solvay Group
  • Gurit
  • Teijin
  • Toray
  • TPI Composites

The other prominent vendors in the market are Axiom Materials, HC Composite, Hexcel, Molded Fiber Glass Companies, SGL Group, TenCate, and Vestas.

Segmentation by resin type and analysis of the wind turbine composite materials market

  • Thermosets
  • Thermoplastics

During 2016, the thermosets segment accounted for the major shares and dominated this market. Factors such as the resins being low-cost alternatives, ease of processing, and faster cycle time will contribute to the growth of this industry segment in the coming years. Epoxy resins offer better fatigue properties and are stronger and durable than polyester resins. Additionally, the manufacture of epoxy composites is relatively environment-friendly than polyester composites. However, the new age polyesters are proving to meet all the durability, strength, and fatigue requirements.

Segmentation by fiber composite and analysis of the wind turbine composite materials market

  • Glass fiber composite
  • Carbon fiber, aramid fiber, and basalt fiber

During 2016, the glass fiber composite segment dominated the market and held the majority of market share due to the high strength and surfacing characteristics possessed by it. Glass fiber prepregs are highly preferred as they offer benefits such as good surface finish, room temperature storage, and balanced epoxy resin content.
