The truth stays that the provider does not have much influence over the buyer at this point especially as the buyer does not show brand recognition or rate level of sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the buyer and the maker do not have a major control over the actual sales, this shows that the distributor has the greater power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand commitment and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the immediate adhesive market shows that the marketplace allows ease of entry. Nevertheless, if we look at Colby General Hospital A in particular, the company has double capabilities in terms of being a maker of adhesive dispensers and immediate adhesives. Prospective dangers in devices dispensing industry are low which shows the possibility of producing brand awareness in not only immediate adhesives but also in dispensing adhesives as none of the market players has actually managed to position itself in dual capabilities.
