The following section concentrates on the 3Cs of marketing for Tata Tea Limited B where the company's clients, competitors and core competencies have evaluated in order to validate whether the decision to introduce Case Study Help under Tata Tea Limited B brand name would be a practical choice or not. We have firstly looked at the kind of clients that Tata Tea Limited B deals in while an examination of the competitive environment and the business's weak points and strengths follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the reason for not introducing Case Study Help under Tata Tea Limited B name.
Tata Tea Limited B clients can be segmented into two groups, final consumers and industrial clients. Both the groups use Tata Tea Limited B high performance adhesives while the company is not just associated with the production of these adhesives however likewise markets them to these customer groups. There are two kinds of products that are being sold to these prospective markets; anaerobic adhesives and immediate adhesives. We would be concentrating on the customers of instantaneous adhesives for this analysis since the market for the latter has a lower capacity for Tata Tea Limited B compared to that of instant adhesives.
The total market for immediate adhesives is around 890,000 in the United States in 1978 which covers both customer groups which have been recognized earlier.If we look at a breakdown of Tata Tea Limited B possible market or consumer groups, we can see that the business offers to OEMs (Original Equipment Producers), Do-it-Yourself clients, repair and upgrading companies (MRO) and manufacturers handling items made from leather, metal, plastic and wood. This variety in consumers suggests that Tata Tea Limited B can target has different choices in regards to segmenting the market for its brand-new product specifically as each of these groups would be requiring the same kind of item with particular modifications in packaging, demand or amount. However, the consumer is not cost sensitive or brand conscious so launching a low priced dispenser under Tata Tea Limited B name is not a suggested option.
Tata Tea Limited B is not simply a maker of adhesives but enjoys market leadership in the instant adhesive market. The business has its own proficient and competent sales force which includes worth to sales by training the company's network of 250 suppliers for helping with the sale of adhesives. Tata Tea Limited B believes in unique distribution as shown by the reality that it has selected to offer through 250 distributors whereas there is t a network of 10000 suppliers that can be checked out for expanding reach by means of distributors. The business's reach is not limited to The United States and Canada only as it likewise takes pleasure in global sales. With 1400 outlets spread all across North America, Tata Tea Limited B has its in-house production plants rather than using out-sourcing as the preferred method.
Core proficiencies are not limited to adhesive manufacturing only as Tata Tea Limited B also focuses on making adhesive dispensing equipment to assist in making use of its products. This double production strategy provides Tata Tea Limited B an edge over competitors given that none of the rivals of dispensing devices makes instant adhesives. Furthermore, none of these competitors offers straight to the customer either and uses suppliers for connecting to consumers. While we are looking at the strengths of Tata Tea Limited B, it is crucial to highlight the company's weaknesses.
The company's sales personnel is competent in training suppliers, the truth stays that the sales group is not trained in offering devices so there is a possibility of relying heavily on suppliers when promoting adhesive equipment. However, it should also be kept in mind that the suppliers are revealing unwillingness when it concerns offering devices that needs servicing which increases the challenges of selling devices under a specific trademark name.
If we look at Tata Tea Limited B product line in adhesive devices particularly, the company has products focused on the luxury of the market. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if Tata Tea Limited B sells Case Study Help under the very same portfolio. Given the fact that Case Study Help is priced lower than Tata Tea Limited B high-end product line, sales cannibalization would certainly be impacting Tata Tea Limited B sales earnings if the adhesive equipment is sold under the company's trademark name.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting Tata Tea Limited B 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. There is another possible threat which could lower Tata Tea Limited B earnings if Case Study Help is released under the company's brand name. The truth that $175000 has been spent in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a good time for releasing a dispenser which can highlight the fact that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the immediate adhesive.
Furthermore, if we take a look at the marketplace in general, the adhesives market does not show brand name orientation or cost consciousness which gives us two extra reasons for not introducing a low priced product under the company's brand.
The competitive environment of Tata Tea Limited B would be studied by means of Porter's 5 forces analysis which would highlight the degree of rivalry in the market.

While companies like Tata Tea Limited B have handled to train suppliers regarding adhesives, the final consumer is dependent on suppliers. Around 72% of sales are made directly by producers and distributors for immediate adhesives so the purchaser has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Offered the truth that the adhesive market is controlled by 3 players, it could be stated that the supplier takes pleasure in a greater bargaining power compared to the purchaser. However, the truth stays that the provider does not have much influence over the buyer at this point especially as the buyer does not show brand acknowledgment or rate level of sensitivity. This suggests that the distributor has the greater power when it concerns the adhesive market while the buyer and the maker do not have a significant control over the real sales.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand loyalty and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese rivals in the immediate adhesive market shows that the marketplace enables ease of entry. However, if we take a look at Tata Tea Limited B in particular, the company has double abilities in terms of being a maker of instantaneous adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Potential hazards in devices dispensing industry are low which shows the possibility of producing brand name awareness in not just instant adhesives however likewise in giving adhesives as none of the industry players has handled to place itself in double abilities.
Danger of Substitutes: The hazard of replacements in the immediate adhesive industry is low while the dispenser market in particular has alternatives like Glumetic idea applicators, in-built applicators, pencil applicators and advanced consoles. The truth remains that if Tata Tea Limited B presented Case Study Help, it would be enjoying sales cannibalization for its own products. (see appendix 1 for structure).
