The primary function of the gearbox in a wind turbine is to connect the blades to the turbine, which combined with a generator generates electricity from wind power. Gearboxes also allow the generator's internal shaft to rotate 50 to 250 times per rotation of the turbine blades. This provides an advantage of low noise levels combined with high efficiency.

As the global wind energy industry has been growing substantially in recent years, so has there been a rise in the gearbox market. Gearbox production has been increasing steadily over the years and it is expected that at the end of 2014 the annual production of gearboxes amounted to over 35 GW.

Gearboxes is one of the costliest part of the wind turbine and makes up for almost 15% of the overall wind turbine cost. However, the price of gearboxes is expected to decrease in the coming years.

Players that dominate the global wind turbine gearbox market include China High Speed Transmission, Bosch Rexroth, ZF Wind Power Antwerpen, Moventas and many others.
