Danish manufacturer Vestas held the title as the world’s largest supplier of wind turbines in 2017, according to preliminary findings from FTI Intelligence. The preliminary figures also show that the top five turbine OEMs, Vestas, Siemens Gamesa, Goldwind, GE and Enercon, dominated new wind installations in 2017, accounting for 62 percent of all installations, almost 10 percentage points higher than the previous year. The uplift is a clear indication that the recent M&A activity has helped western turbine suppliers enhance their strategic positioning and consolidate their market share.
