GE has been the dominant player in wind turbine manufacturing plants installed in the US. In 2002, it purchased Enron’s wind business (formally known as Zond). From 2005 to 2015, GE’s average annual share of installed capacity was 44% or 2.7 GW per year.
In 2018, 40% of the US market for turbine installations was captured by GE, Vestas at 38%, Mordex at 11%, and Siemens-Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) at 8%.
Vestas was the leading turbine supplier for wind installations across the world in 2018. Goldwind, SGRE(Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy), and GE come next in the line
In 2018, global wind additions roughly added up to 50,100 MW. 90% of it was land-based and 10% of its offshore wind. Whereas in 2016, the total record was 63,800 MW and in 2017 it was 53,500 MW. It was way higher than in 2018.
In 2018, the US holds the 2nd position after China with 7,588 MW of installed capacity.
