According to research and consulting firm GlobalData, the rapid pace of wind energy capacity is expected to help increase the value of the operations and maintenance market from $3 billion in 2008 to $19 billion by 2020.

A recent report from the company states that more than 191 GW of wind power capacity was added between 2008 and 2012, which increased O&M expenditure over the same period from $3 billion to $7 billion.
