Global LIDAR Systems Market for the Wind Industry 2018-2022: The Increase in Wind Tower Height is a Major Market Driver -


The "Global
LIDAR Systems Market for Wind Industry 2018-2022"
report has
been added to's offering.

The global LIDAR systems market for the wind industry is expected to
grow at a CAGR of 5.52% during the period 2018-2022.

The report has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with
inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and
its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a
discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

One trend in the market is decrease in wind electricity cost. Wind
energy is currently one of the least-cost sources of electricity
generation. The global weighted average electricity cost production for
onshore wind has gone down by almost one-fifth between 2010 and 2016.

According to the report, one driver in the market is increase in wind
tower height. The wind tower height has grown tremendously in the past
few years as the wind blows more steadily at high altitudes, which helps
increase the energy generated from wind turbines. The increase in height
of wind towers has resulted in the increased size of rotors, blades, and
also the total potential production from wind turbines.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is
competition from fossil fuels. According to the IEA, renewable energy,
including solar PV energy, hydro energy, and wind energy, alone
accounted for 23% share of electricity generation in 2015. Wind energy
has not been able to overcome the wide use of fossil fuels.
