Wind Turbine Systems: United States

This report forecasts US wind turbine demand in units and US dollars at the manufacturers' level to 2018. Total demand (in dollars) is segmented by component in terms of nacelle, rotor system, tower, and balance of system. Total demand is also segmented by application as follows: independent power producers, investor-owned utilities, other utility owners, and distributed power.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in an annual series from 2003 to 2013; total demand in units and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2008 and 2013. An Industry Overview section defines components and applications; discusses market drivers and constraints; identifies substitute products when applicable; and provides pertinent background on wind turbine system types, environmental and regulatory factors, and government incentives.

A Demand Forecasts section assesses the impact of key drivers and constraints on each component and application segment over the forecast period.

Further analysis includes an Industry Structure section, which surveys the supply base and profiles the leading suppliers competing to serve US demand. A one-page, introductory Highlights section summarizes key findings from this 27-page report, and a Resources section lists contributing sources as well as resources available for further research.
