Both the groups utilize Bambooya Corporation 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 2 types of items that are being sold to these potential markets; anaerobic adhesives and instantaneous adhesives. We would be concentrating on the customers of instantaneous adhesives for this analysis because the market for the latter has a lower potential for Bambooya Corporation compared to that of instant adhesives.
The overall market for immediate adhesives is roughly 890,000 in the US in 1978 which covers both client groups which have actually been determined earlier.If we look at a breakdown of Bambooya Corporation potential market or client groups, we can see that the company sells to OEMs (Initial Equipment Makers), Do-it-Yourself customers, repair and overhauling business (MRO) and producers handling items made from leather, metal, plastic and wood. This diversity in consumers recommends that Bambooya Corporation can target has numerous choices in regards to segmenting the market for its new product specifically as each of these groups would be needing the exact same kind of item with particular changes in product packaging, amount or demand. However, the customer is not price sensitive or brand conscious so releasing a low priced dispenser under Bambooya Corporation name is not a suggested alternative.
Bambooya Corporation is not simply a producer of adhesives but enjoys market management in the instant adhesive industry. The business has its own experienced and competent sales force which adds value to sales by training the company's network of 250 distributors for helping with the sale of adhesives.
Core competences are not restricted to adhesive production only as Bambooya Corporation likewise concentrates on making adhesive dispensing equipment to assist in the use of its items. This double production method offers Bambooya Corporation an edge over competitors since none of the rivals of dispensing devices makes instant adhesives. In addition, none of these competitors offers directly to the consumer either and uses suppliers for reaching out to customers. While we are looking at the strengths of Bambooya Corporation, it is crucial to highlight the business's weak points.

We can see sales cannibalization impacting Bambooya Corporation 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. There is another possible threat which could reduce Bambooya Corporation income if Case Study Help is introduced under the business's brand name. The truth that $175000 has been spent in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a good time for launching a dispenser which can highlight the reality that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the immediate adhesive.
Furthermore, if we look at the marketplace in general, the adhesives market does not show brand name orientation or price consciousness which gives us 2 additional factors for not launching a low priced product under the business's brand name.
The competitive environment of Bambooya Corporation would be studied via Porter's 5 forces analysis which would highlight the degree of competition in the market.

The reality stays that the provider does not have much impact over the purchaser at this point specifically as the buyer does not show brand acknowledgment or price level of sensitivity. This indicates that the supplier has the greater power when it concerns the adhesive market while the manufacturer and the purchaser do not have a significant control over the actual sales.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name loyalty and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the immediate adhesive market indicates that the market allows ease of entry.

The reality remains that if Bambooya Corporation presented Case Study Help, it would be enjoying sales cannibalization for its own items. (see appendix 1 for framework).
