Abstract (Swedish)
Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to explain the investment decision process in a newly established market that is characterized by uncertainty.

Methodology: The research has a qualitative character and is based on a case study based on the biogas industry in Sweden.

Theoretical perspectives: The theoretical framework of the study is based on the three phases of an investment process: The initializing phase, the assessment phase and the decision phase. Decision theory and business related theory regarding investments also serve as theoretical perspectives.

Empirical foundation: The empirical data is collected via six semi-structured interviews with one representative of each company who is closely involved with the... (More)

Empirical foundation: The empirical data is collected via six semi-structured interviews with one representative of each company who is closely involved with the investments of the firm.
The investments used as empirical foundation of the study are mostly new investments in biogas production plants.

Conclusions: The study indicates that the investment decision-making process often is initiated by a perceived need, although there are also other perspectives that serve as alternative approaches. The more time and routine there is at hand for the investment decision process in the newly established market, the more the assessment phase reminds of the investment decision process in well established markets. Capital Budgeting is influenced by economical, environmental as well as other strategic factors. In the decision phase, multiple stakeholders’ interests influence the final investment decision.
