The following area focuses on the of marketing for Hawkeye Bancorporation where the company's clients, competitors and core competencies have evaluated in order to justify whether the decision to release Case Study Help under Hawkeye Bancorporation brand would be a possible alternative or not. We have first of all looked at the type of consumers that Hawkeye Bancorporation handle while an evaluation of the competitive environment and the company's weak points and strengths follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the reason for not releasing Case Study Help under Hawkeye Bancorporation name.
Hawkeye Bancorporation consumers can be segmented into two groups, commercial clients and last customers. Both the groups use Hawkeye Bancorporation high performance adhesives while the company is not only associated with the production of these adhesives but likewise markets them to these consumer groups. There are two kinds of items that are being sold to these potential markets; anaerobic adhesives and immediate adhesives. We would be concentrating on the customers of instant adhesives for this analysis given that the marketplace for the latter has a lower capacity for Hawkeye Bancorporation compared to that of immediate adhesives.
The total market for instantaneous adhesives is approximately 890,000 in the US in 1978 which covers both consumer groups which have actually been recognized earlier.If we look at a breakdown of Hawkeye Bancorporation possible market or consumer groups, we can see that the company sells to OEMs (Initial Devices Producers), Do-it-Yourself customers, repair and upgrading companies (MRO) and makers handling products made from leather, wood, plastic and metal. This diversity in customers suggests that Hawkeye Bancorporation can target has different choices in regards to segmenting the marketplace for its brand-new product especially as each of these groups would be needing the same type of product with particular changes in demand, packaging or quantity. The consumer is not price sensitive or brand name conscious so introducing a low priced dispenser under Hawkeye Bancorporation name is not a suggested choice.
Hawkeye Bancorporation is not just a maker of adhesives however enjoys market leadership in the instant adhesive industry. The company has its own knowledgeable and certified sales force which adds value to sales by training the business's network of 250 distributors for facilitating the sale of adhesives.
Core skills are not limited to adhesive manufacturing only as Hawkeye Bancorporation likewise focuses on making adhesive dispensing devices to assist in using its items. This dual production strategy offers Hawkeye Bancorporation an edge over rivals given that none of the competitors of dispensing equipment makes instantaneous adhesives. Additionally, none of these rivals offers directly to the customer either and makes use of distributors for connecting to consumers. While we are looking at the strengths of Hawkeye Bancorporation, it is essential to highlight the company's weak points.
The business's sales personnel is proficient in training distributors, the truth remains that the sales group is not trained in offering devices so there is a possibility of relying greatly on distributors when promoting adhesive equipment.

Provided the truth that Case Study Help is priced lower than Hawkeye Bancorporation high-end product line, sales cannibalization would certainly be impacting Hawkeye Bancorporation sales profits if the adhesive devices is sold under the company's trademark name.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting Hawkeye Bancorporation 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. There is another possible hazard which could decrease Hawkeye Bancorporation income if Case Study Help is released under the business's brand name. The fact that $175000 has actually been spent in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a great time for introducing a dispenser which can highlight the reality that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the immediate adhesive.
Furthermore, if we look at the market in general, the adhesives market does not show brand name orientation or rate awareness which provides us 2 extra reasons for not releasing a low priced item under the business's brand.

This suggests that the distributor has the higher power when it pertains to the adhesive market while the manufacturer and the buyer do not have a major control over the actual sales.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand loyalty and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese competitors in the immediate adhesive market indicates that the market permits ease of entry.
