High Level Analysis
Porter’s five forces model and SWOT analysis provides a complete overview of the global combined heat power generation market. The bargaining power of the buyer is high due to the undifferentiated products. The products of manufacturers are more or less the same. The threat of substitute is high due to the presence of various other heat and power generation methods such as boilers and other systems. Due to high initial investment needed, the threat of new entrants is minimum, and also the presence of major and dominating players restrict new entry in this industry. The rivalry in the industry is the high due to numerous competitors.
