About Wind Anemometers

The main purpose of a wind anemometer is to measure the average, minimum, and maximum wind speeds in terms of wind turbulence at a particular site. Anemometers are put at different heights over a mast, which is useful in providing wind shear information like the difference in wind speeds at different heights. They also give information about the direction of wind speed. Ultrasonic devices that are built in wind direction monitors are used for the detection of wind direction. The anemometer, wind vane equipment and pole are referred to as a meteorological mast or otherwise met mast. The information about speed and direction of wind is collected by a data logger and analyzed by a computer software.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global wind anemometers market to grow at a CAGR of 5.57% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Wind Anemometers Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global wind anemometers market: Ammonit Measurement, FT Technologies, Gill Instruments, Lufft, and Siemens.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aanderaa (a Xylem brand), Biral, Campbell Scientific, CruzPro, DEIF, Delta Ohm Benelux, FERNSTEUERGERÄTE Kurt Oelsch, IED Electronics, LCJ Capteurs, Maretron, NRG Systems, PCE Deutschland, Siap+Micros, and Vaisala.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is innovation of digital and smaller wind anemometers. Many wind farms are located in harsh weather terrains such as mountains or offshore sea locations. Due to their locations, these wind farms are in the high humidity and cold conditions. As the conditions are harsh due to high humid or cold weather, mechanical cup and vane anemometers tend to fail and need to be rebuilt due to the formation of ice or failure of components.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is supportive regulatory policies for wind energy projects. Governments worldwide are supporting wind energy projects through favorable policies and tax incentives. The FiT policy, which is designed to encourage investments in technologies related to renewable energy generation, is one such notable example. The Renewable Energy Sources Act, 2014, in Germany established fixed FiTs for power utilities in the country, which used renewable energy for power generation. This policy covers various aspects of the wind energy industry such as eligibility, bonuses, and various other grants.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is competition from fossil fuels. According to the IEA, in 2016, the share of renewable energy in the global power generation was 23%. We expect this share to increase to 26% by 2020. Fossil fuels that dominated the global power generation, since their discovery, accounted for around 67% in 2016. However, it is still low considering the huge amount of electricity that is generated, globally. Since 2001, the share of wind power in the global energy mix has been increasing steadily. In countries that have abundant coal reserves, governments prefer not to replace coal-based electricity with alternate but costlier renewable energy sources such as wind power.
