The following section focuses on the of marketing for Adventurous Computer Games Inc where the business's customers, competitors and core proficiencies have actually evaluated in order to justify whether the choice to introduce Case Study Help under Adventurous Computer Games Inc trademark name would be a practical choice or not. We have firstly looked at the type of consumers that Adventurous Computer Games Inc deals in while an examination of the competitive environment and the company's strengths and weaknesses follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the justification for not launching Case Study Help under Adventurous Computer Games Inc name.
Adventurous Computer Games Inc customers can be segmented into 2 groups, commercial customers and final consumers. Both the groups use Adventurous Computer Games Inc high performance adhesives while the company is not only involved in the production of these adhesives however also markets them to these client groups. There are two types of items that are being sold to these possible markets; immediate adhesives and anaerobic adhesives. We would be focusing on the customers of immediate adhesives for this analysis given that the marketplace for the latter has a lower potential for Adventurous Computer Games Inc compared to that of instant adhesives.
The total market for instant 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 Adventurous Computer Games Inc prospective market or client groups, we can see that the business offers to OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), Do-it-Yourself consumers, repair work and revamping business (MRO) and manufacturers dealing in items made from leather, metal, wood and plastic. This variety in clients recommends that Adventurous Computer Games Inc can target has various alternatives in regards to segmenting the marketplace for its brand-new product especially as each of these groups would be needing the same type of product with respective changes in product packaging, amount or demand. Nevertheless, the client is not price delicate or brand conscious so introducing a low priced dispenser under Adventurous Computer Games Inc name is not a suggested alternative.
Adventurous Computer Games Inc is not simply a maker of adhesives but takes pleasure in market management in the instant adhesive industry. The business has its own proficient and qualified sales force which includes worth to sales by training the company's network of 250 suppliers for helping with the sale of adhesives.
Core skills are not restricted to adhesive manufacturing only as Adventurous Computer Games Inc also focuses on making adhesive giving devices to assist in using its items. This dual production method gives Adventurous Computer Games Inc an edge over competitors considering that none of the rivals of giving equipment makes instant adhesives. Additionally, none of these competitors offers straight to the consumer either and utilizes suppliers for connecting to clients. While we are looking at the strengths of Adventurous Computer Games Inc, it is important to highlight the company's weak points also.
Although the business's sales personnel is proficient in training suppliers, the truth stays that the sales team is not trained in selling devices so there is a possibility of relying heavily on distributors when promoting adhesive equipment. Nevertheless, it needs to likewise be kept in mind that the distributors are revealing hesitation when it concerns offering devices that requires servicing which increases the obstacles of selling devices under a particular trademark name.
The company has products intended at the high end of the market if we look at Adventurous Computer Games Inc item line in adhesive devices particularly. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if Adventurous Computer Games Inc sells Case Study Help under the same portfolio. Given the reality that Case Study Help is priced lower than Adventurous Computer Games Inc high-end product line, sales cannibalization would definitely be affecting Adventurous Computer Games Inc sales profits if the adhesive equipment is offered under the company's trademark name.
We can see sales cannibalization affecting Adventurous Computer Games Inc 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. If Case Study Help is launched under the company's brand name, there is another possible hazard which could reduce Adventurous Computer Games Inc income. The reality that $175000 has been spent in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a great time for introducing a dispenser which can highlight the truth that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the immediate adhesive.
Furthermore, if we look at the market in general, the adhesives market does disappoint brand orientation or rate awareness which provides us two extra reasons for not releasing a low priced item under the business's brand.
The competitive environment of Adventurous Computer Games Inc would be studied through Porter's 5 forces analysis which would highlight the degree of rivalry in the market.
Bargaining Power of Buyer: The Bargaining power of the buyer in this market is low particularly as the purchaser has low knowledge about the item. While companies like Adventurous Computer Games Inc have managed to train distributors regarding adhesives, the final customer is dependent on distributors. Roughly 72% of sales are made straight by makers and suppliers for instantaneous adhesives so the purchaser has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Provided the reality that the adhesive market is dominated by 3 gamers, it could be stated that the supplier enjoys a greater bargaining power compared to the buyer. However, the reality stays that the provider does not have much influence over the purchaser at this point especially as the buyer does not show brand name acknowledgment or cost level of sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the producer and the buyer do not have a major control over the actual sales, this indicates that the supplier has the greater power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand commitment and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the instantaneous adhesive market shows that the marketplace permits ease of entry. If we look at Adventurous Computer Games Inc in specific, the business has double abilities in terms of being a manufacturer of adhesive dispensers and instantaneous adhesives. Potential dangers in equipment dispensing industry are low which reveals the possibility of developing brand name awareness in not only immediate adhesives but also in dispensing adhesives as none of the market gamers has managed to position itself in dual capabilities.
Threat of Substitutes: The threat of substitutes in the instantaneous adhesive industry is low while the dispenser market in particular has replacements like Glumetic suggestion applicators, in-built applicators, pencil applicators and advanced consoles. The fact stays that if Adventurous Computer Games Inc introduced Case Study Help, it would be enjoying sales cannibalization for its own items. (see appendix 1 for framework).

This market has an extra growth capacity of 10.1% which might be a good enough specific niche market section for Case Study Help. Not just would a portable dispenser offer benefit to this particular market, the reality that the Diy market can likewise be targeted if a safe and clean low priced adhesive is being sold for use with SuperBonder. The product would be sold without the 'glumetic idea' and 'vari-drop' so that the consumer can decide whether he wants to opt for either of the two accessories or not.
Price: The suggested cost of Case Study Help has been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is sold through suppliers or by means of direct selling.

Place: A circulation design where Adventurous Computer Games Inc directly sends out the product to the local distributor and keeps a 10% drop shipment allowance for the supplier would be used by Adventurous Computer Games Inc.
