US wind turbine system demand will grow 6.8 percent annually through 2012, driven by rising interest in domestic energy and government incentives. Public utilities will increase their market share while independent power producers remain dominant. The New England and Middle Atlantic subregions will grow the fastest.
This study analyzes the $7.3 billion US wind turbine system industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by type (e.g., horizontal axis, vertical axis), component (e.g., nacelle, rotor, towers), application (e.g., electric power generation utilities, distributed electric power generation) and region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including General Electric, Vestas Wind Systems and Siemens.
