Wind Turbine Rotor Blade Market: By Material, Blade Size, and Region
In 2022, global Wind Turbine Rotor Blade market valued at USD 19.62 Billion and is expected to attain a value of USD 39.11 Billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 9.00% during the forecast period, 2022–2028.
Wind Turbine Rotor Blade Market Size, 2022 To 2030 (USD Billion)
The increasing demand for larger turbines with broader rotors has created opportunities for longer blades as well as those with complex airfoil shapes such as those incorporating scimitar tips where the trailing edge sweeps back over the tip region. In addition, composite materials are now often used for high-performance blades to reduce weight while maintaining product stiffness and strength. For example, carbon fiber composites are used for high-thrust, stiff blades with large root diameters that are subjected to the highest loads.

By Material, Carbon Fiber to continue Leading the Wind Turbine Rotor Blade Market
The global demand for Wind Turbine Rotor Blades made from carbon fiber is forecasted to increase significantly in a relatively short period of time, as major manufacturers from around the world are expected to use these blades on a large scale from 2021 onwards. Moreover, a number of industry announcements have occurred recently regarding research, development and certification of carbon fiber components for wind turbines. Also, it has been found that the energy sector is willing to invest in carbon fiber technology, while aerospace manufacturers are also exploring the use of this composite material for wind turbine blades and potentially other applications.
The global market for carbon fiber used in rotor blades is expected to increase at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of approximately 15% from 2018 to 2025, This growth can be attributed mainly to the high strength-to-weight ratio offered by such components as well as their potential for improving wind energy output. Another factor that is driving market revenue is the increasing demand for green energy. Carbon fiber has been gaining traction in the wind energy industry, owing to its lightweight yet strong properties. With a specific gravity of around 3kg/m3 , carbon fiber is not only much lighter than other metal alloys or fiberglass but also much stronger. Carbon fiber components are preferred by manufacturers as there are no load-bearing restrictions for the blades and they can be made thinner with less material usage.
Asia is the Largest Wind Turbine Rotor Blade Market
International trade in Wind Turbine Rotor Blade is rising fast, with a boom in orders from China and the US. In 2018, China was the biggest importer of blades, importing a total of 2.6 GW worth of wind turbine blade sets from all countries, accounting for 42% of global imports. The US imported 1.2 GW worth in the same year, making up 22% share in world market. The Netherlands and Germany were also major exporters to the US with a share around 10%. Japan's leading position is under threat from expanding wind power industries in other Asian countries such as Korea and China. Japan exported only 0.12GW worth of blades to the region while an amount much smaller than that went to the US (0.2GW). However, since then exports have been on steady rise and are expected to reach at least 0.5GW by 2021/22 fiscal year.
JSR's wind turbine blades are exported to markets such as Europe, the US, South America and North Africa. They are sold under the brand name of "ROTEX". JSR is exporting an average of 1 GW per year to overseas countries with increasing production capacity.
