Embedded in the 3C analysis is the reason for not launching Case Study Help under Longtop Financial Technologies A name.

Both the groups utilize Longtop Financial Technologies A high performance adhesives while the business is not just involved in the production of these adhesives however likewise markets them to these customer groups. There are two kinds of products that are being offered to these potential markets; instantaneous adhesives and anaerobic adhesives. We would be concentrating on the consumers of immediate adhesives for this analysis because the marketplace for the latter has a lower capacity for Longtop Financial Technologies A compared to that of instant adhesives.
The total market for instant adhesives is roughly 890,000 in the United States in 1978 which covers both client groups which have actually been identified earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of Longtop Financial Technologies A potential market or customer groups, we can see that the company sells to OEMs (Original Equipment Producers), Do-it-Yourself clients, repair and upgrading business (MRO) and makers dealing in items made of leather, wood, metal and plastic.

Nevertheless, the customer is not rate delicate or brand conscious so releasing a low priced dispenser under Longtop Financial Technologies A name is not a suggested choice.
Longtop Financial Technologies A is not simply a manufacturer of adhesives however enjoys market management in the instant adhesive industry. The company has its own experienced and qualified sales force which adds worth to sales by training the business's network of 250 suppliers for helping with the sale of adhesives. Longtop Financial Technologies A believes in special distribution as indicated by the truth that it has actually picked to sell through 250 distributors whereas there is t a network of 10000 distributors that can be checked out for broadening reach through suppliers. The business's reach is not limited to The United States and Canada only as it also takes pleasure in worldwide sales. With 1400 outlets spread out all across North America, Longtop Financial Technologies A has its in-house production plants rather than utilizing out-sourcing as the favored technique.
Core proficiencies are not restricted to adhesive manufacturing only as Longtop Financial Technologies A likewise focuses on making adhesive giving equipment to facilitate the use of its items. This double production strategy gives Longtop Financial Technologies A an edge over rivals since none of the rivals of dispensing devices makes immediate adhesives. Additionally, none of these rivals offers directly to the consumer either and makes use of distributors for connecting to clients. While we are looking at the strengths of Longtop Financial Technologies A, it is essential to highlight the company's weaknesses.
Although the company's sales personnel is knowledgeable 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 suppliers when promoting adhesive equipment. It needs to likewise be noted that the suppliers are showing hesitation when it comes to offering equipment that requires maintenance which increases the difficulties of offering devices under a specific brand name.
If we take a look at Longtop Financial Technologies A product line in adhesive devices particularly, the business has products aimed at the high end of the market. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if Longtop Financial Technologies A sells Case Study Help under the very same portfolio. Provided the reality that Case Study Help is priced lower than Longtop Financial Technologies A high-end product line, sales cannibalization would certainly be affecting Longtop Financial Technologies A sales earnings if the adhesive equipment is sold under the business's brand name.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting Longtop Financial Technologies A 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. There is another possible danger which could lower Longtop Financial Technologies A income if Case Study Help is introduced under the business's trademark name. The fact that $175000 has been invested in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a good 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 marketplace in general, the adhesives market does not show brand orientation or price consciousness which offers us two extra reasons for not launching a low priced product under the company's trademark name.
The competitive environment of Longtop Financial Technologies A would be studied via Porter's five forces analysis which would highlight the degree of rivalry in the market.
Bargaining Power of Buyer: The Bargaining power of the buyer in this industry is low particularly as the buyer has low understanding about the product. While companies like Longtop Financial Technologies A have handled to train suppliers concerning adhesives, the final customer depends on suppliers. Around 72% of sales are made straight by producers and distributors for instant adhesives so the buyer has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Provided the reality that the adhesive market is dominated by 3 gamers, it could be said that the supplier delights in a greater bargaining power compared to the purchaser. Nevertheless, the truth remains that the supplier does not have much impact over the buyer at this moment particularly as the purchaser does not show brand name acknowledgment or price sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the buyer and the manufacturer do not have a significant control over the real sales, this indicates that the supplier has the greater power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name commitment and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese competitors in the instantaneous adhesive market indicates that the market enables ease of entry. If we look at Longtop Financial Technologies A in specific, the company has dual abilities in terms of being a maker of immediate adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Prospective hazards in devices giving market are low which shows the possibility of creating brand awareness in not only immediate adhesives however also in dispensing adhesives as none of the industry gamers has actually handled to position itself in double abilities.
Danger of Substitutes: The risk of replacements in the immediate adhesive industry is low while the dispenser market in particular has replacements like Glumetic idea applicators, in-built applicators, pencil applicators and advanced consoles. The reality stays that if Longtop Financial Technologies A presented Case Study Help, it would be delighting in sales cannibalization for its own products. (see appendix 1 for framework).

This market has an extra development capacity of 10.1% which might be a good enough niche market segment 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 item would be offered without the 'glumetic idea' and 'vari-drop' so that the consumer can choose whether he wishes to opt for either of the two devices or not.
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.
