We have to start with looked at the kind of clients that Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup handle while an evaluation of the competitive environment and the company's strengths and weak points follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the justification for not releasing Case Study Help under Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup name.

There are 2 types of items that are being offered to these potential markets; instantaneous adhesives and anaerobic adhesives. We would be concentrating on the customers of instantaneous adhesives for this analysis considering that the marketplace for the latter has a lower capacity for Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup compared to that of instant adhesives.
The total market for instantaneous adhesives is around 890,000 in the United States in 1978 which covers both consumer groups which have been identified earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup potential market or client groups, we can see that the company offers to OEMs (Original Devices Manufacturers), Do-it-Yourself consumers, repair and upgrading business (MRO) and producers handling products made of leather, metal, wood and plastic.

The customer is not price delicate or brand conscious so launching a low priced dispenser under Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup name is not a suggested choice.
Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup is not just a maker of adhesives however delights in market management in the immediate adhesive market. The company has its own skilled and competent sales force which includes value to sales by training the business's network of 250 distributors for facilitating the sale of adhesives.
Core proficiencies are not limited to adhesive manufacturing only as Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup likewise focuses on making adhesive dispensing devices to assist in the use of its products. This dual production technique gives Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup an edge over rivals given that none of the rivals of dispensing equipment makes immediate adhesives. Additionally, none of these rivals offers straight to the consumer either and utilizes suppliers for connecting to clients. While we are looking at the strengths of Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup, it is essential to highlight the company's weak points also.
Although the company's sales personnel is skilled in training distributors, the truth stays that the sales group is not trained in offering devices so there is a possibility of relying greatly on distributors when promoting adhesive equipment. It must likewise be noted that the distributors are showing hesitation when it comes to offering equipment that requires servicing which increases the challenges of selling equipment under a specific brand name.
If we look at Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup line of product in adhesive equipment especially, the company has actually products aimed at the high-end of the market. If Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup sells Case Study Help under the same portfolio, the possibility of sales cannibalization exists. Provided the fact that Case Study Help is priced lower than Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup high-end line of product, sales cannibalization would certainly be affecting Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup sales income if the adhesive equipment is sold under the company's brand name.

If Case Study Help is introduced under the business's brand name, there is another possible hazard which could decrease Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup revenue. The reality that $175000 has been invested in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a great 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.
In addition, if we look at the market in general, the adhesives market does disappoint brand name orientation or cost consciousness which offers us two additional factors for not introducing a low priced item under the company's brand name.
The competitive environment of Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup would be studied through Porter's five forces analysis which would highlight the degree of competition in the market.
Bargaining Power of Buyer: The Bargaining power of the purchaser in this industry is low particularly as the buyer has low understanding about the product. While business like Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup have actually handled to train suppliers relating to adhesives, the last customer depends on distributors. Around 72% of sales are made straight by producers and distributors for instant adhesives so the purchaser has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Provided the truth that the adhesive market is controlled by 3 gamers, it could be stated that the supplier takes pleasure in a greater bargaining power compared to the purchaser. However, the reality stays that the supplier does not have much influence over the buyer at this moment particularly as the buyer does disappoint brand name recognition or cost level of sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the buyer and the producer do not have a major control over the actual sales, this indicates that the distributor has the greater power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name loyalty and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese competitors in the instantaneous adhesive market suggests that the marketplace enables ease of entry. Nevertheless, if we look at Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup in particular, the business has dual abilities in terms of being a manufacturer of adhesive dispensers and instant adhesives. Potential risks in equipment dispensing industry are low which reveals the possibility of developing brand awareness in not only instantaneous adhesives however also in dispensing adhesives as none of the industry players has actually handled to position itself in dual abilities.
Danger of Substitutes: The threat of replacements in the instant adhesive market is low while the dispenser market in particular has replacements like Glumetic tip applicators, in-built applicators, pencil applicators and sophisticated consoles. The fact stays that if Athomecare Inc Health Care Services Rollup introduced Case Study Help, it would be indulging in sales cannibalization for its own items. (see appendix 1 for structure).

This market has an extra development potential of 10.1% which might be a good enough specific niche market section for Case Study Help. Not just would a portable dispenser deal benefit to this specific market, the truth that the Do-it-Yourself market can also be targeted if a drinkable low priced adhesive is being sold for use with SuperBonder. The item would be offered without the 'glumetic tip' and 'vari-drop' so that the customer can decide whether he wishes to opt for either of the two devices or not.
Price: The recommended price of Case Study Help has been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is sold through distributors or by means of direct selling.
