Asia-Pacific to Lead the Wind Turbine Tower Market Until 2020

Global Wind Turbine Tower Market Rises to $17.2 Billion in 2015 from $13 Billion in 2010

The global wind tower market increased from $13 billion in 2010 to $17.2 billion in 2015. This can be attributed to an addition of 67gigawatts (GW) of wind capacity in 2015, compared with 38.2 GW in 2010.

The total wind capacity addition in the 2020 is expected be 67 GW, similar to 2015. However, the tower market is expected to drop to $14.5 billion in 2020, mainly due to declining prices and increased tower heights to be used in larger turbines.

Tower prices are expected to fall by 7% in 2020. Globally, between 2010 and 2015, around 280 GW of wind power was installed in 160,000 towers, and further 313 GW are expected during 2016–2020 using 135,000 towers.

The following figure shows global additional wind capacity and the number of turbine towers required in 2010, 2015 and 2020.
