Top 10 Wind Turbine Manufacturing Companies

The global wind turbine market is a consolidated market of which the top 10 companies account for approximately 80%. European wind turbine manufacturer Vestas, from Denmark, dominated the global market in 2011, with a market share of 12.7% on the basis of installed capacity, which was 5,054 Megawatts (MW). This was however a drop from 2010's share of 14.8%. Chinese manufacturer Sinovel ranked second with a share of 9% and 2,939 MW of installed capacity.

China is one of the fastest growing wind turbine markets in the world. Annual installed capacity stood at around 18 Gigawatts (GW) in 2011 and cumulative installed capacity at around 63 GW due to the emergence of domestic players such as Sinovel, GoldWind, Guodian United Power and Ming Yang Wind Power. These companies gained a place in the top 10 wind turbine manufacturers' list for the first time in 2011 and are proving stiff competition to other global players such as GE Energy, Vestas and Suzlon.
