DUBLIN, March 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Wind Automation Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

The global wind automation market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.98% during the period 2016-2020.

The use of geared motors and drives, PLC, SCADA, and DCS has increased the efficiency of wind power electricity generation. The geared motor and drive component of a windmill controls the rotational speed and directions of the turbine. PLC, SCADA, and DCS solutions help in monitoring and controlling of the turbines. The solutions are also used to store, transmit, and distribute electricity generated through turbines and transferred to substations through electricity grids.

According to the report, rising demand for renewable energy has attracted heavy investments in solar, hydro, and wind power since 2010. A majority of the investments may be used as a capital fund to construct wind power plants. Capital investments include costs incurred in project development, government permissions, turbines, installation, commissioning, and other operational costs.

Further, the report states that many countries across the globe prefer coal, gas, and hydro as source for power generation compared to wind. The conventional power generation involves less capital expenditure compared to wind power generation. Hence, restricts the market growth.
