In 2014, the global wind farm O & M market size hit USD9.25 billion, representing a year-on-year growth rate of 25.8%; by 2018, the market size is expected to reach USD13.78 billion. The mainstream onshore wind farm O & M market seized the share of 90.2% in 2014, much higher than the rest offshore wind farm O & M market. With the accelerating construction of offshore wind power, the global offshore wind farm O & M market is expected to grow at above 20% in 2015-2018.

China ranks first worldwide in terms of wind farm O&M market size. In 2014, the country achieved USD2.18 billion, accounting for 23.6%. Since the warranty period of a large number of wind turbines made in 2009 is approaching, China’s wind farm O & M market size will surge to USD3.512 billion by 2018.

At present, players in the Chinese wind farm O&M market can be divided into three main types: wind turbine manufacturers, wind farm developers and third-party O&M companies. In 2015, wind farm developers enjoy the lion’s share –74.6%, followed by wind turbine manufacturers with 14.8%. Third-party O&M companies have a relatively small scale owing to technical barriers.
