Bargaining Power of Supplier: Given the truth that the adhesive market is dominated by 3 players, it could be said that the provider takes pleasure in a higher bargaining power compared to the purchaser. Nevertheless, the truth remains that the provider does not have much influence over the buyer at this point especially as the purchaser does not show brand acknowledgment or cost level of sensitivity. This shows that the supplier has the higher power when it comes to the adhesive market while the maker and the purchaser do not have a significant control over the actual sales.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name commitment and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese rivals in the immediate adhesive market suggests that the marketplace enables ease of entry.
