However, the fact stays that the supplier does not have much impact over the purchaser at this point specifically as the buyer does disappoint brand name recognition or rate sensitivity. This shows that the supplier has the higher power when it concerns the adhesive market while the purchaser and the manufacturer do not have a major control over the actual sales.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand commitment and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese rivals in the immediate adhesive market shows that the market allows ease of entry.
