Embedded in the 3C analysis is the justification for not releasing Case Study Help under H J Heinz Manda name.

Both the groups utilize H J Heinz Manda high performance adhesives while the company is not just associated with the production of these adhesives however likewise markets them to these client groups. There are 2 types of items that are being offered to these possible markets; instantaneous adhesives and anaerobic adhesives.

The overall market for instant adhesives is around 890,000 in the US in 1978 which covers both consumer groups which have actually been determined earlier.If we look at a breakdown of H J Heinz Manda potential market or customer groups, we can see that the business offers to OEMs (Original Devices Makers), Do-it-Yourself customers, repair work and upgrading companies (MRO) and manufacturers handling products made of leather, wood, metal and plastic. This diversity in clients suggests that H J Heinz Manda can target has different choices in regards to segmenting the marketplace for its new product specifically as each of these groups would be needing the very same kind of item with particular changes in demand, amount or product packaging. The customer is not price sensitive or brand mindful so introducing a low priced dispenser under H J Heinz Manda name is not a suggested alternative.
H J Heinz Manda is not simply a maker of adhesives but delights in market leadership in the instantaneous adhesive industry. The business has its own skilled and qualified sales force which includes value to sales by training the company's network of 250 distributors for helping with the sale of adhesives. H J Heinz Manda believes in exclusive circulation as suggested by the reality that it has actually chosen to sell through 250 suppliers whereas there is t a network of 10000 distributors that can be checked out for broadening reach through distributors. The company's reach is not limited to North America only as it likewise delights in global sales.

Core skills are not limited to adhesive manufacturing just as H J Heinz Manda also concentrates on making adhesive dispensing devices to facilitate making use of its items.

If Case Study Help is launched under the business's brand name, there is another possible threat which could lower H J Heinz Manda earnings. The fact that $175000 has been spent in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a great time for launching 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 market in general, the adhesives market does not show brand name orientation or price consciousness which provides us two additional factors for not launching a low priced item under the company's brand name.
The competitive environment of H J Heinz Manda would be studied by means of Porter's five forces analysis which would highlight the degree of rivalry in the market.
Bargaining Power of Buyer: The Bargaining power of the buyer in this market is low especially as the purchaser has low understanding about the item.

Bargaining Power of Supplier: Provided the reality that the adhesive market is controlled by 3 players, it could be said that the supplier delights in a greater bargaining power compared to the buyer. The truth remains that the supplier does not have much impact over the purchaser at this point especially as the purchaser does not reveal brand acknowledgment or cost level of sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the maker and the buyer do not have a major control over the real sales, this shows that the distributor has the greater power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand loyalty and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese rivals in the instant adhesive market indicates that the marketplace enables ease of entry. If we look at H J Heinz Manda in specific, the company has double abilities in terms of being a manufacturer of immediate adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Potential dangers in devices dispensing industry are low which reveals the possibility of developing brand awareness in not just instant adhesives however likewise in dispensing adhesives as none of the market players has handled to place itself in dual abilities.
