Wind turbine towers can be tubular, lattice structured or guyed pole towers. Concrete towers are also popular. Increasing capacities of modern wind turbines have resulted in larger rotor diameters. This has necessitated higher towers. Turbine towers are made in sections and assembled on site. Taller towers are increasingly becoming popular as wind profiles are stronger at greater heights.
The growing shift towards clean renewable energy is the main driver for the wind energy market, and therefore the turbine tower market. Increasing standards of living around the world is another driver for this market. Government policies on wind energy are different the world over. The European markets are being hit hard from governments withdrawing subsidies and stopping feed-in tariff programs for renewable energy. Emerging markets in Asia, Africa and South America are providing a boost to the industry. The wind power industry is also hoping to benefit from the growing number of offshore wind turbine installations.
Some of the key players in this market are Trinity Structural Towers, Inc., Valmont Industries, Inc., Ambau, KGW and Broadwind Energy. Major wind turbine generator makers like Vestas, Suzlon and Enercon are also engaged in tower manufacturing.
