We have firstly taken a look at the kind of consumers that La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise handle while an examination of the competitive environment and the business's strengths and weaknesses follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the reason for not launching Case Study Help under La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise name.
Both the groups use La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise high performance adhesives while the company is not only included in the production of these adhesives but also markets them to these client groups. We would be focusing on the consumers of immediate adhesives for this analysis because the market for the latter has a lower capacity for La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise compared to that of instant adhesives.
The overall market for instant adhesives is approximately 890,000 in the US in 1978 which covers both customer groups which have actually been recognized earlier.If we look at a breakdown of La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise prospective market or customer groups, we can see that the business offers to OEMs (Initial Equipment Manufacturers), Do-it-Yourself consumers, repair and revamping companies (MRO) and manufacturers handling products made of leather, metal, wood and plastic. This variety in consumers suggests that La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise can target has different alternatives in regards to segmenting the market for its new product especially as each of these groups would be needing the same kind of product with respective changes in packaging, amount or need. The client is not rate sensitive or brand mindful so releasing a low priced dispenser under La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise name is not a suggested alternative.
La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise is not just a maker of adhesives however enjoys market leadership in the immediate adhesive industry. The business has its own knowledgeable and qualified sales force which adds value to sales by training the business's network of 250 suppliers for helping with the sale of adhesives. La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise believes in exclusive circulation as shown by the truth that it has picked to offer through 250 distributors whereas there is t a network of 10000 distributors that can be checked out for expanding reach by means of suppliers. The business's reach is not limited to North America just as it also enjoys international sales. With 1400 outlets spread out all across North America, La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise has its internal production plants instead of using out-sourcing as the preferred method.
Core proficiencies are not restricted to adhesive manufacturing just as La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise likewise specializes in making adhesive dispensing devices to assist in using its items. This double production method provides La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise an edge over competitors given that none of the competitors of giving equipment makes instant adhesives. Furthermore, none of these competitors sells straight to the customer either and makes use of suppliers for connecting to clients. While we are looking at the strengths of La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise, it is essential to highlight the business's weaknesses.
The company's sales personnel is competent in training suppliers, the truth stays that the sales team is not trained in offering devices so there is a possibility of relying greatly on distributors when promoting adhesive devices. Nevertheless, it should also be kept in mind that the distributors are revealing hesitation when it comes to selling equipment that needs maintenance which increases the challenges of selling devices under a specific brand.
If we take a look at La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise product line in adhesive devices especially, the company has items targeted at the luxury of the market. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise sells Case Study Help under the same portfolio. Offered the truth that Case Study Help is priced lower than La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise high-end line of product, sales cannibalization would certainly be affecting La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise sales earnings if the adhesive equipment is offered under the company's brand.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. If Case Study Help is introduced under the business's brand name, there is another possible hazard which could reduce La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise profits. The fact that $175000 has actually been spent in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a great time for releasing 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.
Additionally, if we look at the market in general, the adhesives market does disappoint brand orientation or price consciousness which offers us two additional factors for not launching a low priced product under the business's brand name.
The competitive environment of La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise 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 purchaser in this market is low specifically as the purchaser has low understanding about the product. While companies like La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise have handled to train distributors concerning adhesives, the final customer is dependent on suppliers. Approximately 72% of sales are made straight by makers and distributors for immediate adhesives so the purchaser has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Given the truth 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. Nevertheless, the fact stays that the supplier does not have much influence over the buyer at this moment especially as the buyer does disappoint brand name acknowledgment or price sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the purchaser and the manufacturer do not have a major control over the real sales, this indicates that the supplier has the higher power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name commitment and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the instant adhesive market indicates that the marketplace enables ease of entry. However, if we take a look at La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise in particular, the business has dual abilities in terms of being a producer of instantaneous adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Potential threats in devices giving industry are low which shows the possibility of developing brand name awareness in not just instant adhesives but also in giving adhesives as none of the market gamers has actually handled to position itself in double capabilities.
Threat of Substitutes: The risk of substitutes in the instant adhesive industry is low while the dispenser market in particular has substitutes like Glumetic idea applicators, built-in applicators, pencil applicators and sophisticated consoles. The reality remains that if La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise presented Case Study Help, it would be delighting in sales cannibalization for its own items. (see appendix 1 for framework).
Despite the fact that our 3C analysis has provided different factors for not introducing Case Study Help under La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise name, we have a recommended marketing mix for Case Study Help given below if La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise decides to proceed with the launch.
Product & Target Market: The target market picked for Case Study Help is 'Automobile services' for a number of factors. There are currently 89257 establishments in this segment and a high use of around 58900 pounds. is being utilized by 36.1 % of the market. This market has an extra growth potential of 10.1% which might be a good enough niche market section for Case Study Help. Not only would a portable dispenser deal benefit to this specific market, the fact that the Do-it-Yourself market can also be targeted if a safe and clean low priced adhesive is being cost use with SuperBonder. The product would be offered without the 'glumetic pointer' and 'vari-drop' so that the consumer can choose whether he wishes to go with either of the two devices or not.
Price: The recommended cost of Case Study Help has been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is offered through distributors or through direct selling. A cost listed below $250 would not need approvals from the senior management in case a mechanic at a motor vehicle maintenance shop needs to acquire the product on his own.
La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise would only be getting $157 per unit as displayed in appendix 2 which gives a breakdown of gross profitability and net success for La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise for launching Case Study Help.
Place: A distribution design where La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise directly sends the product to the local distributor and keeps a 10% drop shipment allowance for the distributor would be used by La Grande Alliance Restaurant Francaise. Because the sales group is already participated in offering immediate adhesives and they do not have expertise in selling dispensers, involving them in the selling procedure would be pricey specifically as each sales call costs around $120. The distributors are currently selling dispensers so offering Case Study Help through them would be a beneficial choice.
