Merck Schering Plough Merger B is not simply a maker of adhesives however delights in market management in the instant adhesive industry. The business has its own skilled and qualified sales force which adds value to sales by training the business's network of 250 suppliers for facilitating the sale of adhesives.

Furthermore, if we take a look at the market in general, the adhesives market does not show brand name orientation or rate awareness which offers us two additional factors for not launching a low priced item under the company's brand name.
The competitive environment of Merck Schering Plough Merger B would be studied via Porter's five forces analysis which would highlight the degree of competition in the market.
Bargaining Power of Buyer: The Bargaining power of the purchaser in this market is low especially as the buyer has low knowledge about the item.

When it comes to the adhesive market while the manufacturer and the buyer 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 loyalty and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the immediate adhesive market suggests that the market enables ease of entry. However, if we look at Merck Schering Plough Merger B in particular, the company has dual capabilities in regards to being a manufacturer of adhesive dispensers and immediate adhesives. Potential threats in devices giving industry are low which reveals the possibility of creating brand name awareness in not just immediate adhesives but also in giving adhesives as none of the market players has handled to position itself in dual abilities.
