Scope

This study presents an assessment of the current status and future prospects of the global wind blade materials market for both onshore and offshore wind turbines. It accounts for past and future revenue generated from resin, fiber, and core material sales, from 2011 to 2021 using a base year of 2014. Revenue is recorded at the manufacturer level. The study analyses the wind energy market and its effects on the blade materials market as well as key technological trends. Industry challenges and market drivers and restraints are outlined and discussed. In addition, the impact that larger wind turbines and the resulting larger blades has on demand for materials is explored. Last, strategic recommendations are provided.

Key Findings

-Wind energy is sought as a replacement for traditional sources of energy due to increasing geopolitical risks and reducing dependency on imported fuels. More R&D is expected to improve the existing wind technology thereby making it more economical.
-Wind blade materials are at the forefront of technological advancements, mainly focused on improving blade structure and strength in order to maximize generated power and minimize blade weight and maintenance costs.
-Uncertainty in government policies in developed regions has resulted in fluctuating annual wind energy installations, registering strong growth during a particular year and low growth the following year. Materials manufacturers are carefully expanding their supply capacity while keeping in mind the cyclic nature of the market.
-The increase in the average blade length has spurred innovation in the reinforcing fiber and core materials segments. Manufacturers are more focused on improving the performance characteristics of existing materials than on developing new materials. High M&A activities are also expected as the manufacturers look to diversify their product offerings.
-The APAC region will continue to lead the market in size because of its fast-growing wind energy industry. North America and ROW are expected to be the two fastest growing wind turbine blade materials markets. Europe and North America continue to use the highest average volume of materials per blade due to a trend towards larger wind turbines.
-Brand equity, supply reliability, and high performance-price ratio will remain the key differentiating factors among market participants.
