Report Highlights

As the wind power industry grows at a tremendous pace, the Global Wind Turbine Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) Market is also becoming field to increasing activity. The Global Wind Turbine MRO Market is expected to grow from USD XX Billion in 2015 and reach USD XX Billion by 2022, growing at a pace of XX percentage.

Globally, there is a growth in the need for energy. With growing levels of pollution, and a fast declining fossil fuel reserve, the need of the hour is clean energy. Wind is one of the most dominant and economically feasible renewable energy source in the world, and there is a large and growing installed base of wind turbines in the world today. This huge base has resulted in the growth of the wind turbine MRO market.  

Emerging economies around the world are in a phase of rapid industrialization and urbanization, and this contributes a large part to the growing need for clean energy. This is one of the major drivers for the wind power industry, and the wind turbine MRO industry is also benefiting from this. The wind industry is also having the backing of governments around the world, especially as countries are trying to reduce their carbon footprint. The growing adoption of wind power technology is reducing the cost of this technology, which is in turn making it more affordable and attractive to power generation agencies. All of these factors contribute to the growth of the wind power industry, and thereby the wind turbine MRO industry. Factors that restrain the wind power industrys growth like the noise pollution and aesthetic concerns of wind turbines are also a hindrance to the growth of the wind turbine MRO industry.

The market for wind turbine maintenance, repair and overhaul can be classified based on the components requiring the MRO operation into gearbox, generator, blades, electrical systems and others. The cost of repair of components like gearboxes, generators and blades constitute the largest share of the market by value. But, the number of repair and maintenance operations are seen to be more for the electric components. The market can also be classified based on the location of the turbine into offshore and onshore.

The report also classifies the wind turbine MRO market based on geography into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America and Africa & Middle East.

Previously, the wind turbine manufacturers were the dominant players in the wind turbine MRO market, but with growth in the market, many independent service providers, both large and small, are also gaining prominence in the market. Some of the players in the wind turbine MRO market include Vestas, Siemens, Moventas, Stork Gears & Services, Gamesa, Mekanord and Suzlon. As maintenance contracts of older wind turbines start to expire, the   market that was previously entirely in the hands of OEMs is opening up to smaller service providers.
