The direct drive (gearless) wind turbine is a low-speed generator that eliminates the need for a gearbox from the turbine’s drive train. These turbines have advantages such as lightness compared to conventional turbines and significantly lower maintenance costs as there is no need for gearbox replacements. The preferred direct drive wind turbine generator is the permanent magnet type generator, as it is lighter in weight and possesses high reliability for offshore applications.

This report on the global direct drive wind turbine market covers all major regions - Asia-Pacific, Europe, Americas, and Middle East and Africa. At country level India, China, Germany U.K., U.S., Canada, and Brazil have also been covered. Asia-Pacific is identified as the largest market as well as the highest growing in the next five years among all regional markets. Europe is the second largest regional market after Asia-Pacific. However, direct drive wind turbine is an emerging market and will grow by 15.2% annually over the period of next five years. In Asia-Pacific, China is the main growth contributor. Globally, China is also the largest country level market and thus its growth significantly affects the global market.

The report also estimates the new installations (in MW as well as in units) and revenues of the direct drive wind turbine market (in $million), and its various submarkets with respect to four main regions - Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Middle East and Africa. The direct drive or gearless wind turbine market has also been segmented by turbine size (capacity range) i.e. turbines less than 1 MW, 1 MW - 3 MW, and more than 3 MW sizes. The turbine size ranging 1 MW - 3 MW has the highest market share. In this report, the global direct drive wind turbines market has also been segmented by generator technology. The electrically excited synchronous generator (EESG) and permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) are the two types of direct drive generators currently in the market. The PMSG direct drive generator is expected to have highest share.

This report identifies factors which are currently driving the market growth. Gearbox failure and supportive regulatory environment are recognized as the important market drivers which have a significant impact at present. The report also highlights the market restraints and burning issues. Off-shore potential has been identified as the major opportunity which is attracting all direct drive wind turbine manufacturers.

Developments and strategies of top direct drive wind turbine manufacturers have been studied in order to distinguish winning imperatives. The report also profiles those companies including company overview, direct drive products offered by the company, financials, recent developments, and strategy based on those developments. The companies which are included in this report are Avantis Energy Group, Enercon, Godecke Energy, Siemens Wind Power A/S, Emergya Wind Technologies B.V, GE Energy, Northern Power Systems, Goldwind Science & Technology Co. Ltd, Leitwind AG, Spain based M. Torres Olvega Industrial, S.A., ReGen Powertech Pvt. Ltd among others

Scope of the Report

The global DD wind turbine market is analyzed in terms of new installations (in units as well as MW), and revenues (in $million) for all regions and respective major countries. Revenues from each geography and major country have been broken down by turbine capacity/size.

The direct drive wind turbine capacity/size ranges which have been identified and included in this study are:

- Less than 1 MW
