Wood Mackenzie: Global wind turbine supply chain could hit $600 billion annually by 2028

first_imgWood Mackenzie: Global wind turbine supply chain could hit $600 billion annually by 2028 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Smart Energy:The global wind turbine supply chain is expected to generate up to $600 billion per annum between 2020 and 2028, according to a new study released by Wood Mackenzie.Despite the COVID-19 pandemic which is pressing near-term hurdles for the wind energy industry, the market is expected to record 8% growth during the forecast period compared to 2019.The study states that U.S. PTC phaseout post-2020 will spur demand for nearly 5,000 wind towers in 2020, compelling turbine OEMs to increase tower imports into the U.S. despite anti-dumping duties.Wood Mackenzie says higher average turbine prices and a 20% growth in offshore demand reflect a 37% uptick in supply chain potential, representing a cumulative value of $222 billion by 2028. Strategic capital components, such as blades and towers, present a $25 billion cumulative opportunity by themselves.Shashi Barla, a principal analyst with Wood Mackenzie, said: “A rush in installation activity has caused a shortage of blades and bearings. The coronavirus has jeopardised approximately 10-15% of production volumes in China, Spain and Italy. However, Chinese companies resumed production in early March, resulting in a downgrade of only 3GW for 2020 installations.More: Annual revenue for global wind turbine supply chain to hit $600bnlast_img read more
