As a result, there will be a noticeable shift from fossil fuels and renewable energy sources. In Europe, there are many offshore windmill projects in operation, accounting for 90% of total power generation. This is further fueling the growth of wind turbine condition monitoring market

The growing inclination towards renewable clean energy is a significant driving factor for the growth of the wind turbine condition monitoring market worldwide. The wind turbine condition monitoring market is mature in developed nations and is growing substantially in many developing countries. Due to the high output and long-term expansion of wind farms, the installation of offshore wind turbines is on the rise. Additionally, the growing global population and increasing disposable income in developing countries are driving energy consumption. However, the wind turbine condition monitoring market's growth is hampered by the high cost of offshore wind farm installations. The wind turbine condition monitoring system facilitates an accurate shaft bending, shaft signature or profile, torsional vibration of the shaft, shaft torque, shaft rpm, and shaft power measurement. These systems are widely utilized for the early detection of failures or faults and also help in maximizing productivity and minimizing downtime, thereby increasing the growth of the wind turbine condition monitoring market.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Wind Turbine Condition Monitoring Market

North America has the highest rate of advanced technology adoption due to favorable government policies fostering innovation and enhancing infrastructural abilities. The COVID-19 pandemic had several implications for the renewable energy sector in the region. Wind power-generating facilities had reduced activity, including shutting down construction, operations, and maintenance projects at several locations, due to the implication of lockdown. Across the wind energy industry, these quarantine measures and shutdowns caused furloughs and layoffs of technical, construction, and manufacturing personnel, as well as project demobilizations in many cases. As a result, many solar and wind farms struggled to keep up with maintenance and operations. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic made it more difficult for renewable energy producers to get project finance or equity capital. As a result, the COVID-19 pandemic negatively influenced the North American wind turbine condition monitoring market.

Wind Turbine Condition Monitoring Market Insights
Technological Advancement in Wind Turbine Manufacturing and Monitoring

Longer blades and taller towers, two of the most critical aspects in increasing wind turbine productivity, are driving the next-generation research and development effort to create a more powerful, efficient, durable, and cost-effective turbine. Other significant advancements include the creation of intelligent turbines that gather and understand real-time data and the modeling and adjustment of wind plant flows and turbine layouts to optimize wind harvest. The Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) collaborates with the industry to improve the performance and dependability of next-generation wind technologies while lowering wind energy costs. Further, the Wind Energy Technologies Office and the Advanced Manufacturing Office of the US Department of Energy are collaborating with public and private groups to use additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, to produce wind turbine blade molds. The traditional blade design method necessitates the development of a plug, or a full-scale model of the finished blade, which is then utilized to create the mold. The plug is one of the most time-consuming and labor-intensive operations in manufacturing wind turbine blades. Thus, 3D printing saves these valuable resources. Wind industry technology must continue to progress to secure future industry growth, building on previous triumphs to improve dependability, boost capacity factors, and lower costs. Modern wind turbines are becoming more cost-effective and stable, and their power ratings have increased to multi-megawatt levels. Therefore, the rising technological advancements and modernization in the wind turbine condition monitoring system will create numerous market opportunities.

Component-Based Market Insights

Based on component, the wind turbine condition monitoring market is segmented into hardware, software, and services. Anemometer, displacement sensor, data acquisition systems, and accelerometer are widely used in monitoring the condition of the wind turbine. Condition monitoring tool helps monitor the health of the wind turbine components and associated electrical systems. These tools help wind farm operators and owners replace components whenever necessary by predicting maintenance issues. For instance, KK Wind Solutions offers versatile data acquisition and analyzing units, which can be placed in the wind turbine's nacelle. These data acquisition and analyzing units collect data from various connected accelerometers and sensors and transfer the analyzed information. Vibration-based condition monitoring systems are among the most established systems used to monitor the drivetrain in the wind turbine. The sensors used for vibration-based condition monitoring include velocity transducers, accelerometers, and displacement or distance transducers.

Application-Based Market Insights

Based on application, the wind turbine condition monitoring market is segmented into rotor, tower, gearbox, generator, and others. The basic function of the gearbox in the wind turbine is to transfer energy from the rotor to the generator. Due to frequent braking and variable wind speeds, the load fluctuates, which causes a lot of wear on the moving parts. Components of the wind turbine gearbox are typically monitored with vibration sensors. As the resonance of the bearings is particularly in multi-kHz, vibration sensors that perform in the realm of around 10 kHz and above are usually suggested to monitor the high and low-speed shafts. The datum wind turbine condition monitoring system is designed to detect and prevent gearbox failures. With accurate real-time monitoring and analysis, staff schedules can be consulted, and repairs can be conducted at an early stage, which helps in cost savings.
