While the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act established incentives for renewable energy development and state governments also implemented favorable clean-energy policies, industry revenue fell during the five years to 2014, due to uncertainties regarding the extension of the PTC. However, downstream operators raced to start projects before the PTC expired in 2013, and strong demand is forecast to carry over to 2014. In the five years to 2019, the industry is expected to further decline, as a result of continued uncertainty regarding the PTC extension. As demand falls, industry operators are anticipated to consolidate manufacturing operations and shift to providing maintenance and support services. Additionally, operators are expected to rely more heavily on international markets.
