The following section concentrates on the 3Cs of marketing for International Speedway Corporation where the business's consumers, competitors and core competencies have actually evaluated in order to justify whether the choice to launch Case Study Help under International Speedway Corporation brand name would be a practical choice or not. We have actually first of all looked at the type of clients that International Speedway Corporation handle while an evaluation of the competitive environment and the company's weak points and strengths follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the validation for not launching Case Study Help under International Speedway Corporation name.
International Speedway Corporation clients can be segmented into 2 groups, last customers and commercial consumers. Both the groups use International Speedway Corporation high performance adhesives while the company is not just involved in the production of these adhesives however also markets them to these consumer groups. There are two types of items that are being sold to these possible markets; immediate adhesives and anaerobic adhesives. We would be concentrating on the customers of immediate adhesives for this analysis considering that the marketplace for the latter has a lower capacity for International Speedway Corporation compared to that of immediate adhesives.
The overall market for immediate adhesives is roughly 890,000 in the United States in 1978 which covers both consumer groups which have been identified earlier.If we look at a breakdown of International Speedway Corporation possible market or consumer groups, we can see that the business sells to OEMs (Initial Equipment Producers), Do-it-Yourself consumers, repair and overhauling companies (MRO) and makers handling items made of leather, plastic, wood and metal. This diversity in customers suggests that International Speedway Corporation can target has various options in regards to segmenting the market for its new item especially as each of these groups would be needing the exact same type of item with respective changes in demand, packaging or amount. Nevertheless, the consumer is not cost delicate or brand name mindful so releasing a low priced dispenser under International Speedway Corporation name is not a recommended option.
International Speedway Corporation is not just a maker of adhesives but enjoys market leadership in the instant adhesive market. The company has its own proficient and certified sales force which adds value to sales by training the company's network of 250 distributors for facilitating the sale of adhesives.
Core proficiencies are not restricted to adhesive manufacturing only as International Speedway Corporation also specializes in making adhesive giving equipment to assist in the use of its products. This dual production strategy provides International Speedway Corporation an edge over competitors since none of the competitors of giving devices makes instant adhesives. Furthermore, none of these rivals offers straight to the consumer either and makes use of distributors for reaching out to customers. While we are looking at the strengths of International Speedway Corporation, it is important to highlight the business's weaknesses.
Although the company's sales personnel is competent in training suppliers, the reality remains that the sales team is not trained in offering equipment so there is a possibility of relying heavily on distributors when promoting adhesive devices. It needs to likewise be noted that the suppliers are revealing unwillingness when it comes to selling equipment that requires maintenance which increases the difficulties of selling equipment under a particular brand name.
The business has actually items aimed at the high end of the market if we look at International Speedway Corporation product line in adhesive equipment especially. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if International Speedway Corporation sells Case Study Help under the very same portfolio. Provided the fact that Case Study Help is priced lower than International Speedway Corporation high-end product line, sales cannibalization would definitely be impacting International Speedway Corporation sales revenue if the adhesive devices is sold under the company's brand.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting International Speedway Corporation 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. If Case Study Help is introduced under the business's brand name, there is another possible risk which could reduce International Speedway Corporation earnings. The reality that $175000 has actually been spent in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a good time for releasing a dispenser which can highlight the truth that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the instantaneous adhesive.
Furthermore, if we take a look at the marketplace in general, the adhesives market does disappoint brand orientation or cost consciousness which gives us 2 extra reasons for not launching a low priced product under the company's trademark name.
The competitive environment of International Speedway Corporation would be studied by means of Porter's 5 forces analysis which would highlight the degree of rivalry in the market.
Bargaining Power of Buyer: The Bargaining power of the purchaser in this market is low especially as the purchaser has low knowledge about the product. While business like International Speedway Corporation have managed to train suppliers relating to adhesives, the last customer depends on distributors. Roughly 72% of sales are made straight by manufacturers and distributors for instant adhesives so the purchaser has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Given the reality that the adhesive market is controlled by three gamers, it could be stated that the provider takes pleasure in a higher bargaining power compared to the buyer. The fact stays that the provider does not have much impact over the purchaser at this point specifically as the purchaser does not reveal brand recognition or cost sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the manufacturer and the purchaser do not have a significant control over the real sales, this suggests that the supplier has the greater power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name loyalty and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese competitors in the instant adhesive market indicates that the marketplace enables ease of entry. If we look at International Speedway Corporation in particular, the business has double abilities in terms of being a maker of instantaneous adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Prospective threats in equipment dispensing industry are low which reveals the possibility of creating brand awareness in not only immediate adhesives but likewise in dispensing adhesives as none of the market players has actually handled to position itself in dual abilities.
Threat of Substitutes: The risk of substitutes in the instant adhesive market is low while the dispenser market in particular has substitutes like Glumetic tip applicators, inbuilt applicators, pencil applicators and advanced consoles. The fact remains that if International Speedway Corporation presented Case Study Help, it would be delighting in sales cannibalization for its own items. (see appendix 1 for structure).

Not just would a portable dispenser offer convenience to this particular market, the fact that the Diy market can also be targeted if a drinkable low priced adhesive is being sold for use with SuperBonder.

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

Place: A distribution design where International Speedway Corporation directly sends the product to the local supplier and keeps a 10% drop shipment allowance for the supplier would be utilized by International Speedway Corporation.
