The global small wind market is estimated to reach USD 1.89 Billion by 2019, with a projected CAGR of 19.5%, signifying a steady increase in the demand for small wind power.

The market is expected to grow as a result of the increasing demand for electricity worldwide. This increasing demand is attributed to the growing industrialization and increasingly deeper penetration of electricity in unconnected areas. Increasing concerns regarding the adverse environmental effects, price volatilities, and economic costs brought about by the usage of fossil fuels has compelled nations into adopting renewable sources for electricity generation over the past decade.

The market players of small wind continually invest in R&D to reduce the size of the wind turbine’s rotor and to introduce high-quality blades with modified and improved properties. This will reduce the noise generated from the turbines and increase its efficiency. They also invest in expansion of their production facilities in different countries to strengthen their global reach.

Vertical axis wind turbine is the fastest growing type for small wind market, especially in emerging markets, such as China, Brazil, and India.

The small wind market is dominated by large firms, such as Northern Power Systems Inc. (U.S.), Bergey Wind Power Co. (U.S.), Kingspan Group Plc. (Netherlands), Shanghai Ghrepower Green Energy Co. Ltd. (China), Endurance Wind Power Inc. (Canada), ZKEnergy Technology Co., Ltd. (China), and Xzeres Wind Corp. (U.K.). They provide advanced small wind turbine, and by gaining considerable expertise and experience over the years, have optimized their processes and practises to become even more efficient.

Small Wind Market

The on-grid segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 20.1% from 2014 to 2019. The key players of small wind market implement different strategies such as expansions, agreements, contracts, joint ventures, and partnerships to garner a larger share in the market. The leading small wind market players are focusing on countries with emerging markets that are estimated to show potential for industrial development in the near future.

The market for small wind is a highly fragmented one owing to the huge clean energy demand and changing technologies. Major companies rely on regional and local distributors to increase their share as well as geographical presence in the market. One of the major developments observed in the market is new product development. Companies are adopting inorganic growth strategies such as acquisitions to cope with the increasing demand for small wind power in key emerging markets. These strategies have aided companies to create a large customer and partner base in key markets. The application requirements for small wind power and as well as the operating conditions are continuously changing making it essential for the manufacturers and service providers to continually invest in research and development activities and come up with innovative solutions.
