Horizontal-Axis Wind Turbine Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Small , Large ), By Operation (Upwind, Downwind), By Application (Onshore, Offshore) And Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI105719 | Status : Ongoing



A horizontal-axis wind turbine's axis of the rotor's rotation is parallel to the wind and the ground. These turbines consist of an electrical generator and the main rotor shaft on top of the tower. Horizontal-axis wind turbines extract energy from the wind for electricity generation. These turbines usually have two or three blades with a propeller rotor on the horizontal axis. The rotation of these blades generates energy. 

The horizontal-axis wind turbine market can be classified into upwind and downwind based on the operation. The upwind segment is the dominant segment in the market. The upwind designs have the rotor facing the wind. The main advantage of upwind methods is that the wind shade behind the tower can be avoided, leading to increased output. These factors will help the upwind segment grow during the forecast period.

The horizontal-axis wind turbine market can be classified into onshore and offshore based on application. The onshore segment is dominating the market at present. But the offshore segment is expected to be the segment with the highest growth during the forecast period. New avenues are being explored in the offshore segment. The innovations in the field of technology and equipment will lead the offshore segment during the forecast period.

The horizontal-axis wind turbine market is segmented into small and large based on types. The large-scale segment is estimated to dominate the market during the forecast period. Large scale horizontal-axis wind turbines are usually installed in large-scale wind farms for projects or plants. They are suitable for mass electricity production. These factors will drive the large type segment further during the forecast period.

The horizontal-axis wind turbine market is expected to grow due to the rapid development of renewable energy during the forecast period. The increase in new projects for renewable energy is likely to contribute to the market's growth. In addition, the growing number of applications of ren-en in household environments is driving the global horizontal-axis wind turbine market. These factors will influence the positive growth of the horizontal-axis wind turbine during the forecast period.

The horizontal-axis wind turbine market will be affected by the lack of functioning of the turbines. The high cost of an installment may also act as a constraint. Demand during the forecast period will also suffer due to the tendency of horizontal-axis wind turbines to get misaligned and not function properly. These factors will stagnate the horizontal-axis wind turbine market.
