Embedded in the 3C analysis is the reason for not introducing Case Study Help under Brick By Brick name.
Brick By Brick customers can be segmented into two groups, final consumers and industrial customers. Both the groups utilize Brick By Brick high performance adhesives while the company is not only involved in the production of these adhesives however also markets them to these customer groups. There are two types of products that are being sold to these potential markets; instantaneous adhesives and anaerobic adhesives. We would be concentrating on the consumers of instantaneous adhesives for this analysis since the marketplace for the latter has a lower potential for Brick By Brick compared to that of immediate adhesives.
The total market for immediate adhesives is approximately 890,000 in the US in 1978 which covers both customer groups which have actually been determined earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of Brick By Brick prospective market or consumer groups, we can see that the company sells to OEMs (Initial Devices Producers), Do-it-Yourself clients, repair work and upgrading companies (MRO) and producers handling items made from leather, wood, metal and plastic. This variety in consumers recommends that Brick By Brick can target has various options in terms of segmenting the marketplace for its brand-new item especially as each of these groups would be needing the very same type of item with respective changes in product packaging, amount or demand. The consumer is not price sensitive or brand name conscious so launching a low priced dispenser under Brick By Brick name is not a recommended alternative.
Brick By Brick is not simply a maker of adhesives however delights in market leadership in the instant adhesive market. The company has its own skilled and qualified sales force which adds value to sales by training the business's network of 250 distributors for helping with the sale of adhesives. Brick By Brick believes in special circulation as shown by the reality that it has chosen to offer through 250 suppliers whereas there is t a network of 10000 distributors that can be checked out for expanding reach by means of distributors. The company's reach is not restricted to The United States and Canada only as it likewise delights in international sales. With 1400 outlets spread all across The United States and Canada, Brick By Brick has its in-house production plants rather than using out-sourcing as the preferred strategy.
Core competences are not restricted to adhesive manufacturing just as Brick By Brick likewise focuses on making adhesive giving equipment to assist in using its items. This dual production strategy offers Brick By Brick an edge over rivals considering that none of the rivals of dispensing equipment makes instantaneous adhesives. In addition, none of these competitors sells directly to the consumer either and makes use of suppliers for reaching out to customers.

However, it must likewise be kept in mind that the distributors are revealing unwillingness when it comes to selling devices that needs servicing which increases the obstacles of offering devices under a particular trademark name.
If we look at Brick By Brick line of product in adhesive equipment particularly, the business has items targeted at the luxury of the market. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if Brick By Brick offers Case Study Help under the very same portfolio. Offered the reality that Case Study Help is priced lower than Brick By Brick high-end product line, sales cannibalization would absolutely be affecting Brick By Brick sales earnings if the adhesive devices is offered under the business's trademark name.
We can see sales cannibalization affecting Brick By Brick 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. There is another possible hazard which could reduce Brick By Brick earnings if Case Study Help is launched under the business's brand. The reality that $175000 has been spent in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a good time for introducing 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 marketplace in general, the adhesives market does disappoint brand name orientation or price consciousness which offers us two extra factors for not releasing a low priced product under the company's trademark name.
