The report offers insights on drivers, restraints, and opportunities in the global renewable energy market. Steady rise in government initiatives, rising demand from corporate buyers, and an increase in awareness about environmental safety drive growth in the global renewable energy market. However, high initial investment costs and a lack of knowledge on the optimum use of renewable energy hinder growth in the industry.
On the other hand, ever-rising demand for energy and limited availability of non-renewable sources of energy would present new opportunities in the industry. The research outlines Porter’s Five Forces Analysis based on the bargaining power of buyers, bargaining power of suppliers, the threat of substitutes, industrial rivalry, and the threat of new entrants.
