Wind turbine manufacturer Vestas was ousted in 2015 by the new world leader Goldwind in the ranking of the top 15 suppliers of wind turbines, with a market share for Goldwind of 12.64% of the 63 GW installed that year.

Danish manufacturer Vestas follows in second place with 11.94%, closely followed by General Electric with 9.63% and Siemens with 8.12%.

Global ranking of wind turbine manufacturers

Eight of the 15 largest wind turbine manufacturers in the world are companies based in China.

This is not a surprise, as most of the new wind installations in the second half of 2015 were built in China.

In 2015, more than 99% of new wind farms by Chinese companies were installed in their own country, while Western manufacturers such as Enercon, Vestas, Gamesa, General Electric (GE) and Siemens continue to dominate international markets.

If you look at the ranking of wind turbine suppliers, removing Chinese companies, the top five manufacturers accounted for 76% of the world market.
