growth significantly affects the global direct drive wind turbine market.
Global wind energy installed capacity has increased from 74,123 MW at the end of 2006 to 238,200 MW by the end of 2011. With increasing wind energy capacity trends in changing turbine design like increasing size, lighter blades, and direct drive turbines can be observed. Major improvement areas are turbine blades and generator systems. The latest technology being used is direct drive turbine which has no gearbox, and is thus light weight and more efficient. Direct drive turbine offers low maintenance costs since gearboxes do not require replacement.
Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for DDWT annual installation of global direct drive wind turbines. After Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America regions are the second and third largest market respectively for DDWT.
