Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand loyalty and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese rivals in the instantaneous adhesive market shows that the market allows ease of entry. However, if we look at Farmers Business Network Putting Farmers First in particular, the company has dual abilities in terms of being a manufacturer of immediate adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Possible risks in devices dispensing industry are low which shows the possibility of producing brand name awareness in not just instant adhesives but likewise in dispensing adhesives as none of the industry players has actually managed to place itself in double abilities.
