Blendpro Distributors Inc is not just a producer of adhesives but delights in market management in the instantaneous adhesive market. The company has its own knowledgeable and qualified sales force which includes value to sales by training the company's network of 250 suppliers for helping with the sale of adhesives. Blendpro Distributors Inc believes in special distribution as shown by the reality that it has selected to offer through 250 distributors whereas there is t a network of 10000 suppliers that can be explored for expanding reach via suppliers. The business's reach is not limited to North America just as it also enjoys worldwide sales.

The competitive environment of Blendpro Distributors Inc would be studied by means of Porter's 5 forces analysis which would highlight the degree of competition in the market.
Bargaining Power of Buyer: The Bargaining power of the buyer in this market is low particularly as the purchaser has low understanding about the item. While business like Blendpro Distributors Inc have managed to train suppliers regarding adhesives, the final customer is dependent on distributors. Approximately 72% of sales are made directly by producers and suppliers for instant adhesives so the purchaser has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Given the truth that the adhesive market is dominated by three players, it could be said that the supplier takes pleasure in a greater bargaining power compared to the buyer. The fact remains that the supplier does not have much impact over the purchaser at this point specifically as the buyer does not show brand acknowledgment or price 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 suggests that the supplier has the higher power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand loyalty and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese rivals in the immediate adhesive market suggests that the market enables ease of entry. If we look at Blendpro Distributors Inc in particular, the company has dual abilities in terms of being a manufacturer of instant adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Prospective dangers in equipment giving industry are low which reveals the possibility of creating brand awareness in not only instant adhesives but also in giving adhesives as none of the market gamers has managed to place itself in dual capabilities.
Hazard of Substitutes: The danger of replacements in the instantaneous adhesive industry is low while the dispenser market in particular has substitutes like Glumetic suggestion applicators, in-built applicators, pencil applicators and sophisticated consoles. The reality remains that if Blendpro Distributors Inc introduced Case Study Help, it would be delighting in sales cannibalization for its own items. (see appendix 1 for structure).

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