Research and Markets: Attractiveness Analysis of the Southern Cone Wind Turbine Markets: A Smooth Transition for a Cost Competitive Option

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tkq9vm/attractiveness) has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "Attractiveness Analysis of the Southern Cone Wind Turbine Markets: A Smooth Transition for a Cost Competitive Option" to their offering.

In 2011, the wind turbine market in the Southern Cone, comprised of Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay, had 381 megawatts (MW) of installed capacity. The region has significant potential due to high wind speed. Government support policies for wind power differ in the region. However, providing private and public efforts increase, the wind turbine market will grow significantly through the end of the forecast period (2016). This research service provides installed capacity and revenue forecasts, along with market share and competitive analysis for participants in the region. Furthermore, conclusions about the future of the market are included.

Key Questions This Study Will Answer

- How is the Southern Cone wind turbine market structured?

- What are the main drivers and restraints underlying the growth of the wind turbine markets in the Southern Cone?

- Where are the key renewable support policies in each country of the Southern Cone?

- Is the market growing? How long will it continue to grow, and at what rate?

- What are the revenue and forecasts for the wind turbine market for 2009 to 2016?

- Is regulation fostering market growth, or is it poorly implemented?

Summary

- The Southern Cone is awaiting large-scale deployment of wind power projects, as the wind resource remains underexploited in the region. The market is in the early stages and growing significantly; in the short term, this will not result in a capacity relocation.

- Projects funded by domestic utilities and governments result in net benefits for wind turbine manufacturers.

- Only Argentina has manufacturing capabilities; Argentinean firms NRG Patagonia and INVAP possess local manufacturing facilities. Chile and Uruguay lack the industrial scale and incentives for local production of wind turbines.

- IMPSA is shifting tower production toward Uruguay, where a new component facility is under construction, in line with the company's geographic expansion effort. Since 2012, SAME, a Brazilian company, has been manufacturing blades in Chile.

- Vestas, GE Wind, Alstom, and DeWind import wind turbines from European and American markets.

- Many global turbine suppliers have decided to establish a manufacturing base in Brazil, the regional hub for wind power development. Brazilian wind turbine production is focused on furnishing local demand, but a window of opportunity exists for exporting to the Southern Cone.
