The need for sustainable energy and the increasing focus on energy security is one of the prominent trends that is being witnessed in the market. The world is highly dependent on fossil fuels, ranging from power generation to generating heat for motive force. However, fossil fuel reserves in the world are limited. Population across the world has been growing significantly. This has resulted in an increase in industrial and economic activities, which has increased the electricity generation. When compared to 1973, the power production has increased by almost four times in 2015, and a majority of the power is generated from fossil fuels, which is harmful to the environment.

Increase in hub height: a major driver

Unlike the conventional power generation from fossil fuels, generating electricity from wind is highly dependent on meteorological conditions. Wind assessment is carried out to quantify the wind's speed and direction, the temperature, and several other factors, all of which have an impact on the power that is generated from the wind turbine. Technological advances and developments in the blade design are the key factors, which lead to an increase in the wind turbine output and capacity.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for , “The power output increases fourfold by just doubling the rotor size or diameter. Thus, the need to increase renewable power generation and the rapid technological advances are increasing the adoption of wind towers and turbines. This will fuel the growth of the global nacelle-mounted LIDAR systems market for the wind industry.”
