Both the groups utilize Building Cities A Technical Note high performance adhesives while the business is not just associated with the production of these adhesives but also markets them to these client groups. There are two kinds of products that are being sold to these possible markets; anaerobic adhesives and instant adhesives. We would be concentrating on the customers of instantaneous adhesives for this analysis because the market for the latter has a lower capacity for Building Cities A Technical Note compared to that of instantaneous adhesives.
The overall market for instant adhesives is roughly 890,000 in the US in 1978 which covers both client groups which have been determined earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of Building Cities A Technical Note possible market or customer groups, we can see that the company sells to OEMs (Original Devices Producers), Do-it-Yourself customers, repair and overhauling business (MRO) and manufacturers handling products made of leather, wood, metal and plastic. This variety in customers recommends that Building Cities A Technical Note can target has different choices in regards to segmenting the market for its brand-new product particularly as each of these groups would be needing the exact same type of item with particular changes in amount, product packaging or demand. However, the customer is not cost delicate or brand conscious so introducing a low priced dispenser under Building Cities A Technical Note name is not a suggested option.
Building Cities A Technical Note is not just a producer of adhesives but delights in market management in the instant adhesive industry. The company has its own skilled and qualified sales force which adds worth to sales by training the company's network of 250 distributors for facilitating the sale of adhesives.
Core proficiencies are not restricted to adhesive manufacturing only as Building Cities A Technical Note also specializes in making adhesive dispensing equipment to help with the use of its items. This double production strategy gives Building Cities A Technical Note an edge over competitors considering that none of the rivals of giving equipment makes instantaneous adhesives. Additionally, none of these competitors offers straight to the consumer either and utilizes distributors for reaching out to clients. While we are looking at the strengths of Building Cities A Technical Note, it is very important to highlight the company's weak points too.
Although the company's sales personnel is competent in training suppliers, the reality stays that the sales group is not trained in offering equipment so there is a possibility of relying greatly on suppliers when promoting adhesive devices. It needs to likewise be kept in mind that the suppliers are revealing hesitation when it comes to offering devices that requires maintenance which increases the challenges of selling devices under a specific brand name.
If we take a look at Building Cities A Technical Note product line in adhesive equipment especially, the business has items aimed at the high-end of the market. If Building Cities A Technical Note sells Case Study Help under the very same portfolio, the possibility of sales cannibalization exists. Offered the fact that Case Study Help is priced lower than Building Cities A Technical Note high-end line of product, sales cannibalization would definitely be impacting Building Cities A Technical Note sales revenue if the adhesive equipment is offered under the company's trademark name.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting Building Cities A Technical Note 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. If Case Study Help is introduced under the business's brand name, there is another possible danger which could decrease Building Cities A Technical Note income. The reality that $175000 has been spent in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a great time for releasing 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 look at the market in general, the adhesives market does not show brand orientation or price awareness which offers us two extra reasons for not releasing a low priced product under the company's trademark name.
