Wind turbine system demand in China will rise 5.3 percent annually through 2013, driven mainly by government policies. Although utility-scale uses will remain dominant, China's distributed wind turbine market is one of the world's largest. Rotor systems and towers will slightly outpace nacelles and other parts.This study analyzes the 48.2 billion yuan wind turbine system industry in China. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by type (horizontal axis, vertical axis), component (e.g., nacelle, rotor system, towers), application (utility-scale, distributed), location (onshore, offshore) and region (e.g., Central-North, Central-East). The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry participants, including DHI DCW Group, Goldwind Science & Technology and Dongfang Electric.
