The following section focuses on the of marketing for Bake Me A Cake where the business's clients, rivals and core proficiencies have examined in order to justify whether the choice to launch Case Study Help under Bake Me A Cake trademark name would be a practical choice or not. We have actually to start with looked at the type of clients that Bake Me A Cake handle while an assessment of the competitive environment and the business's strengths and weak points follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the reason for not launching Case Study Help under Bake Me A Cake name.
Both the groups use Bake Me A Cake high performance adhesives while the company is not only included in the production of these adhesives but likewise markets them to these client groups. We would be focusing on the customers of immediate adhesives for this analysis since the market for the latter has a lower potential for Bake Me A Cake compared to that of instantaneous adhesives.
The overall market for instantaneous adhesives is roughly 890,000 in the US in 1978 which covers both consumer groups which have been identified earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of Bake Me A Cake prospective market or consumer groups, we can see that the company sells to OEMs (Original Devices Manufacturers), Do-it-Yourself customers, repair work and overhauling companies (MRO) and makers dealing in products made from leather, wood, metal and plastic. This variety in clients recommends that Bake Me A Cake can target has different options in regards to segmenting the marketplace for its brand-new item especially as each of these groups would be needing the same kind of item with particular modifications in demand, packaging or quantity. The customer is not rate sensitive or brand name conscious so introducing a low priced dispenser under Bake Me A Cake name is not an advised choice.
Bake Me A Cake is not just a producer of adhesives however delights in market leadership in the instant adhesive industry. The business has its own skilled and competent sales force which includes worth to sales by training the business's network of 250 suppliers for helping with the sale of adhesives. Bake Me A Cake believes in exclusive distribution as indicated by the reality that it has selected to sell through 250 suppliers whereas there is t a network of 10000 suppliers that can be explored for expanding reach through distributors. The business's reach is not restricted to The United States and Canada just as it also takes pleasure in international sales. With 1400 outlets spread out all across North America, Bake Me A Cake has its in-house production plants instead of using out-sourcing as the preferred strategy.
Core competences are not limited to adhesive manufacturing only as Bake Me A Cake likewise specializes in making adhesive giving devices to facilitate the use of its products. This dual production technique provides Bake Me A Cake an edge over rivals given that none of the competitors of giving equipment makes instantaneous adhesives. Furthermore, none of these rivals offers directly to the customer either and makes use of distributors for reaching out to customers. While we are taking a look at the strengths of Bake Me A Cake, it is very important to highlight the business's weaknesses too.
The business's sales personnel is skilled in training suppliers, the fact remains that the sales team is not trained in selling equipment so there is a possibility of relying heavily on suppliers when promoting adhesive equipment. However, it needs to also be kept in mind that the distributors are revealing unwillingness when it comes to offering devices that requires servicing which increases the challenges of offering equipment under a particular brand name.
If we take a look at Bake Me A Cake line of product in adhesive devices particularly, the company has items aimed at the high-end of the market. If Bake Me A Cake sells Case Study Help under the very same portfolio, the possibility of sales cannibalization exists. Given the fact that Case Study Help is priced lower than Bake Me A Cake high-end product line, sales cannibalization would absolutely be affecting Bake Me A Cake sales profits if the adhesive devices is sold under the company's brand.
We can see sales cannibalization affecting Bake Me A Cake 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. If Case Study Help is introduced under the company's brand name, there is another possible hazard which could lower Bake Me A Cake earnings. The truth that $175000 has been spent in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a great time for launching a dispenser which can highlight the truth that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the instant adhesive.
Furthermore, if we look at the market in general, the adhesives market does not show brand orientation or rate awareness which offers us two extra factors for not releasing a low priced product under the business's brand.
The competitive environment of Bake Me A Cake would be studied through Porter's five forces analysis which would highlight the degree of rivalry in the market.
Bargaining Power of Buyer: The Bargaining power of the purchaser in this industry is low especially as the purchaser has low understanding about the product. While companies like Bake Me A Cake have handled to train distributors relating to adhesives, the final consumer depends on distributors. Roughly 72% of sales are made directly by manufacturers and suppliers for immediate adhesives so the purchaser has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Offered the fact 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 buyer. Nevertheless, the reality stays that the provider does not have much impact over the buyer at this moment specifically as the buyer does disappoint brand recognition or cost sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the buyer and the maker do not have a significant control over the real sales, this shows that the supplier has the higher power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name commitment and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the instant adhesive market suggests that the market allows ease of entry. However, if we look at Bake Me A Cake in particular, the business has double capabilities in terms of being a producer of adhesive dispensers and instant adhesives. Potential risks in devices dispensing market are low which shows the possibility of creating brand awareness in not only immediate adhesives however likewise in dispensing adhesives as none of the industry players has managed to position itself in double abilities.
Threat of Substitutes: The danger of replacements in the immediate adhesive market is low while the dispenser market in particular has substitutes like Glumetic tip applicators, built-in applicators, pencil applicators and sophisticated consoles. The reality remains that if Bake Me A Cake introduced Case Study Help, it would be delighting in sales cannibalization for its own items. (see appendix 1 for structure).

Price: The recommended cost of Case Study Help has actually been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is offered through suppliers or through direct selling.
