A recent market research report added to the vast portfolio of MarketResearchReports.biz presents a detailed account of the global market for direct drive wind turbines, a wind turbine technology which has garnered significant attention of late owing to its several advantages over conventional wind turbines. The report states that the market will exhibit an impressive 11% CAGR over the period between 2017 and 2021. The report is titled “Global Direct Drive Wind Turbine Market 2017-2021.”
In terms of application, the global direct drive wind turbine market is segmented into offshore applications and onshore applications. Of these, the market is presently dominated by the onshore segment, which accounted for a massive chunk of the market revenues in 2016. The key factor to have helped the application segment to take its dominant position is the low capital investment required to set up onshore wind turbines than in onshore locations. This has led to a significant rise in demand for direct drive wind turbines in onshore applications in the past few years. The segment is expected to remain the leading application segment over the report’s forecast period as well.
On the basis of geography, the market for direct drive wind turbines is segmented into Americas (North and South America), APAC (Asia Pacific), and EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa).
