We have actually to start with taken a look at the kind of customers that Battle In The Shipyard deals in while an assessment of the competitive environment and the company's strengths and weak points follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the reason for not introducing Case Study Help under Battle In The Shipyard name.
Both the groups utilize Battle In The Shipyard high efficiency adhesives while the business is not just included in the production of these adhesives but also markets them to these client groups. We would be focusing on the customers of instant adhesives for this analysis considering that the market for the latter has a lower capacity for Battle In The Shipyard compared to that of immediate adhesives.
The total market for immediate adhesives is roughly 890,000 in the United States in 1978 which covers both consumer groups which have actually been identified earlier.If we look at a breakdown of Battle In The Shipyard prospective market or customer groups, we can see that the company offers to OEMs (Original Devices Makers), Do-it-Yourself customers, repair and revamping companies (MRO) and makers dealing in items made from leather, plastic, metal and wood. This diversity in consumers recommends that Battle In The Shipyard can target has various choices in regards to segmenting the marketplace for its brand-new item especially as each of these groups would be requiring the very same kind of item with particular modifications in packaging, need or amount. Nevertheless, the client is not rate delicate or brand mindful so introducing a low priced dispenser under Battle In The Shipyard name is not a suggested choice.
Battle In The Shipyard is not just a maker of adhesives however takes pleasure in market leadership in the immediate adhesive market. The company has its own knowledgeable and competent sales force which adds value to sales by training the business's network of 250 suppliers for assisting in the sale of adhesives.
Core competences are not limited to adhesive manufacturing only as Battle In The Shipyard also specializes in making adhesive giving equipment to help with making use of its products. This double production strategy gives Battle In The Shipyard an edge over rivals since none of the rivals of dispensing equipment makes instantaneous adhesives. In addition, none of these competitors sells directly to the consumer either and utilizes suppliers for connecting to consumers. While we are looking at the strengths of Battle In The Shipyard, it is essential to highlight the company's weak points.
The business's sales personnel is experienced in training suppliers, the reality stays that the sales team is not trained in selling devices so there is a possibility of relying heavily on distributors when promoting adhesive devices. However, it must likewise be noted that the distributors are revealing unwillingness when it comes to offering devices that requires maintenance which increases the challenges of offering devices under a specific brand name.
If we take a look at Battle In The Shipyard line of product in adhesive devices especially, the company has items aimed at the luxury of the marketplace. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if Battle In The Shipyard offers Case Study Help under the same portfolio. Provided the reality that Case Study Help is priced lower than Battle In The Shipyard high-end line of product, sales cannibalization would definitely be affecting Battle In The Shipyard sales income if the adhesive devices is sold under the company's trademark name.
We can see sales cannibalization affecting Battle In The Shipyard 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. If Case Study Help is released under the business's brand name, there is another possible threat which could decrease Battle In The Shipyard profits. The truth that $175000 has been invested in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a great time for introducing a dispenser which can highlight the fact that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the instant adhesive.
In addition, if we take a look at the marketplace in general, the adhesives market does not show brand orientation or price awareness which gives us 2 additional reasons for not launching a low priced product under the company's brand name.
The competitive environment of Battle In The Shipyard 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 buyer in this industry is low particularly as the purchaser has low understanding about the product. While business like Battle In The Shipyard have managed to train suppliers relating to adhesives, the last consumer is dependent on distributors. Approximately 72% of sales are made straight by producers and suppliers for instantaneous adhesives so the buyer 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 provider enjoys a higher bargaining power compared to the buyer. However, the truth stays that the supplier does not have much impact over the purchaser at this point especially as the purchaser does not show brand recognition or cost sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the buyer and the manufacturer do not have a major 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 immediate adhesive market suggests that the marketplace enables ease of entry. If we look at Battle In The Shipyard in particular, the company has dual abilities in terms of being a producer of adhesive dispensers and instantaneous adhesives. Potential dangers in devices giving industry are low which shows the possibility of creating brand awareness in not only immediate adhesives but also in giving adhesives as none of the market gamers has managed to place itself in double abilities.
Danger of Substitutes: The hazard of replacements in the instantaneous adhesive industry is low while the dispenser market in particular has substitutes like Glumetic idea applicators, inbuilt applicators, pencil applicators and sophisticated consoles. The reality remains that if Battle In The Shipyard presented Case Study Help, it would be indulging in sales cannibalization for its own products. (see appendix 1 for framework).

Price: The recommended price of Case Study Help has actually been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is sold through suppliers or through direct selling. This cost would not consist of the cost of the 'vari tip' or the 'glumetic pointer'.
