Bargaining Power of Buyer: The Bargaining power of the buyer in this industry is low particularly as the buyer has low knowledge about the product. While companies like Home Shopping Network Inc Abridged have actually managed to train suppliers relating to adhesives, the last customer depends on distributors.

However, the truth remains that the supplier does not have much influence over the buyer at this point especially as the buyer does not show brand recognition or cost level of sensitivity. This shows that the distributor has the greater power when it comes to the adhesive market while the purchaser and the manufacturer do not have a significant 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 rivals in the immediate adhesive market indicates that the market allows ease of entry. However, if we take a look at Home Shopping Network Inc Abridged in particular, the business has double abilities in regards to being a producer of immediate adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Prospective threats in devices dispensing market are low which reveals the possibility of creating brand awareness in not just instant adhesives but also in dispensing adhesives as none of the industry gamers has managed to place itself in dual abilities.
Hazard of Substitutes: The risk of replacements in the instant adhesive industry is low while the dispenser market in particular has alternatives like Glumetic tip applicators, in-built applicators, pencil applicators and advanced consoles.
