Pune, India, May, 2018 /MRFR Press Release/- Market research future published a research report on Direct drive wind turbine. The Direct drive wind turbine is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 11.5% during the forecast period 2018 to 2022.

Market Highlights

Direct drive wind turbine is a mechanism where the gearbox is eliminated and the power is directly transferred from the motor without any reductions. The advantages of direct drive wind turbine are increased efficiency, reduced noise and higher torque with low rpm.

The report has analyzed the market based on capacities, technologies and regions. Based on capacities, the market is segmented as less than 1MW, 1MW to 3MW and more than 3MW. Among the three, the 1 MW to 3 MW segment dominates the market with the highest share. Based on technologies, the market is further bifurcated as electrically excited synchronous generator and permanent magnet synchronous generator. With the increase in offshore activities, PMSG technology is expected to experience high growth during the forecast period.  Europe, of all regions, has the largest market share based due to forefront investment countries such as Spain, U.K., Germany, Ireland and France. The global direct drive wind turbine market is expected to cross USD XX Billion Mark by the end of forecast period and is expected to grow approximately at 11.5% CAGR from 2018 to 2022.
