The direct drive (gearless) wind turbine is the low-speed generator that eliminates the need for a gearbox from the turbine’s drive train. These turbines have advantages such as - these are lighter as compared to conventional turbine, these have significantly lower maintenance costs, and it is not needed to replace gearbox as these are gearless turbines. The most preferred direct drive wind turbine generator is the permanent magnet type generator, as it is lighter in weight and possesses high reliability for offshore applications.

This report on global direct drive wind turbine market covers all major regions i.e. Asia-Pacific, Europe, Americas, and Middle East and Africa. At country level, India, China, Germany U.K., U.S., Canada, and Brazil have also been covered. Asia-Pacific is identified as the largest market as well as the highest growing in the next five years among all regional markets. Europe is the second largest regional market after Asia-Pacific. However, the direct drive wind turbine is an emerging market and will grow by 15.2% annually over the period of next five years. In Asia-Pacific, China is the main growth contributor. Globally, China is also the largest country level market and thus its growth significantly affects the global market.

The report also estimates the new installations (in MW as well as in units) and revenues of the direct drive wind turbine market (in $million), and its various submarkets with respect to four main regions - Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Middle East and Africa. The direct drive or gearless wind turbine market has also been segmented by turbine size (capacity range) i.e. turbines less than 1 MW, 1 MW - 3 MW, and more than 3 MW sizes. The turbine size ranging 1 MW - 3 MW has the highest market share. In this report, the global direct drive wind turbines market has also been segmented by generator technology. The electrically excited synchronous generator (EESG) and permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) are the two types of direct drive generators currently in the market. The PMSG direct drive generator is expected to have highest share.

This report identifies factors which are currently driving the market growth. Gearbox failure and supportive regulatory environment are figured out to be the important market drivers which have a significant impact on market at present. The report also highlights the market restraints and burning issues. Off-shore potential has been identified as the major opportunity which is attracting all the direct drive wind turbine manufacturers.

Developments and strategies of top direct drive wind turbine manufacturers have been studied in order to distinguish winning imperatives. The report also profiles those companies and a typical profile includes company overview, direct drive products offered by the company, financials, recent developments, and strategy based on those developments. The companies which are included in this report are Avantis Energy Group, Enercon, Godecke Energy, Siemens Wind Power A/S, Emergya Wind Technologies B.V, GE Energy, Northern Power Systems, Goldwind Science & Technology Co. Ltd, Leitwind AG, Spain based M. Torres Olvega Industrial, S.A., ReGen Powertech Pvt. Ltd, etc.

Global wind energy installed capacity has increased from 74,123 MW at the end of 2006 to 238,200 MW by the end of 2011. With increasing wind energy capacity trends in changing turbine design like increasing size, lighter blades, and direct drive turbines can be observed. Major improvement areas are turbine blades and generator systems. The latest technology being used is direct drive turbine which has no gearbox, and is thus light weight and more efficient. Direct drive turbine offers low maintenance costs since gearboxes do not require replacement.

China is the largest geographic market and currently accounts for 41% of global direct drive wind turbine new installations. China is a developing region and its economic growth represents industrial growths in the region. Being the largest regional market, China’s growth significantly affects the global direct drive wind turbine market.

The global direct drive wind turbine market revenue is estimated to be $11.7 billion in 2011 which is estimated to reach $23 billion by 2017, at a CAGR of 15.2% from 2012 to 2017. In the global direct drive wind turbine, the permanent magnet synchronous generator captures the largest market at present share followed by electrically excited synchronous generator. The category 1 - 3 MW captures the largest market share followed by less than 1 MW and then above 3 MW.
