We have firstly taken a look at the kind of consumers that Health Care Manufacturing Inc handle while an evaluation of the competitive environment and the business's weak points and strengths follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the validation for not releasing Case Study Help under Health Care Manufacturing Inc name.
Health Care Manufacturing Inc consumers can be segmented into 2 groups, last consumers and industrial clients. Both the groups utilize Health Care Manufacturing Inc high performance adhesives while the business is not just involved in the production of these adhesives but likewise markets them to these consumer groups. There are 2 kinds of items that are being sold to these prospective markets; anaerobic adhesives and instant adhesives. We would be focusing on the customers of instant adhesives for this analysis since the marketplace for the latter has a lower capacity for Health Care Manufacturing Inc compared to that of instant adhesives.
The overall market for instantaneous adhesives is roughly 890,000 in the US in 1978 which covers both consumer groups which have actually been determined earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of Health Care Manufacturing Inc possible market or client groups, we can see that the business sells to OEMs (Initial Equipment Producers), Do-it-Yourself consumers, repair and revamping companies (MRO) and producers handling products made of leather, wood, metal and plastic. This variety in customers recommends that Health Care Manufacturing Inc can target has numerous alternatives in terms of segmenting the market for its brand-new item specifically as each of these groups would be needing the exact same type of product with respective changes in quantity, packaging or need. However, the customer is not rate sensitive or brand conscious so releasing a low priced dispenser under Health Care Manufacturing Inc name is not a recommended alternative.
Health Care Manufacturing Inc is not just a producer of adhesives but delights in market management in the immediate adhesive market. The company has its own skilled and certified sales force which includes worth to sales by training the company's network of 250 distributors for helping with the sale of adhesives.
Core proficiencies are not limited to adhesive production only as Health Care Manufacturing Inc also focuses on making adhesive giving devices to assist in using its items. This double production strategy offers Health Care Manufacturing Inc an edge over rivals considering that none of the rivals of giving equipment makes immediate adhesives. In addition, none of these rivals sells directly to the customer either and utilizes suppliers for reaching out to consumers. While we are looking at the strengths of Health Care Manufacturing Inc, it is important to highlight the business's weaknesses.
Although the business's sales staff is proficient in training suppliers, the reality remains that the sales team is not trained in selling devices so there is a possibility of relying heavily on distributors when promoting adhesive equipment. However, it ought to likewise be noted that the distributors are revealing reluctance when it comes to offering equipment that needs maintenance which increases the difficulties of offering equipment under a particular brand name.
If we take a look at Health Care Manufacturing Inc product line in adhesive equipment particularly, the company has actually items aimed at the high end of the market.

There is another possible risk which could lower Health Care Manufacturing Inc revenue if Case Study Help is introduced under the company's trademark name. The fact that $175000 has actually been invested in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a great time for introducing 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.
In addition, if we look at the marketplace in general, the adhesives market does not show brand name orientation or cost consciousness which gives us two extra factors for not releasing a low priced product under the company's brand name.
The competitive environment of Health Care Manufacturing Inc would be studied by means of Porter's 5 forces analysis which would highlight the degree of competition in the market.
Bargaining Power of Buyer: The Bargaining power of the purchaser in this industry is low especially as the purchaser has low understanding about the product. While business like Health Care Manufacturing Inc have managed to train suppliers regarding adhesives, the last customer depends on distributors. Roughly 72% of sales are made straight by producers and distributors for instantaneous adhesives so the buyer has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Given the reality that the adhesive market is controlled by 3 gamers, it could be said that the provider takes pleasure in a higher bargaining power compared to the purchaser. Nevertheless, the truth stays that the provider does not have much influence over the purchaser at this moment particularly as the buyer does not show brand acknowledgment or price level of sensitivity. This indicates that the distributor has the higher power when it comes to the adhesive market while the purchaser and the maker do not have a major control over the real sales.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name loyalty and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the instant adhesive market shows that the market permits ease of entry. However, if we look at Health Care Manufacturing Inc in particular, the business has dual capabilities in regards to being a manufacturer of adhesive dispensers and instantaneous adhesives. Possible risks in equipment dispensing market are low which reveals the possibility of creating brand awareness in not just instant adhesives however also in giving adhesives as none of the industry gamers has handled to place itself in dual abilities.
Danger of Substitutes: The risk of substitutes in the instant adhesive market is low while the dispenser market in particular has replacements like Glumetic suggestion applicators, in-built applicators, pencil applicators and advanced consoles. The truth remains that if Health Care Manufacturing Inc introduced Case Study Help, it would be indulging in sales cannibalization for its own products. (see appendix 1 for framework).

Price: The suggested rate of Case Study Help has actually been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is offered through distributors or via direct selling.
