The following area focuses on the of marketing for Messer Griesheim A where the company's customers, rivals and core proficiencies have actually examined in order to validate whether the decision to launch Case Study Help under Messer Griesheim A brand name would be a possible option or not. We have actually first of all looked at the kind of customers that Messer Griesheim A handle while an assessment of the competitive environment and the company's weaknesses and strengths follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the reason for not introducing Case Study Help under Messer Griesheim A name.
Messer Griesheim A customers can be segmented into 2 groups, final consumers and industrial customers. Both the groups use Messer Griesheim A high performance adhesives while the business is not just associated with the production of these adhesives however also markets them to these consumer groups. There are 2 types of items that are being offered to these potential markets; immediate adhesives and anaerobic adhesives. We would be focusing on the customers of instantaneous adhesives for this analysis since the market for the latter has a lower potential for Messer Griesheim A compared to that of immediate adhesives.
The total market for immediate 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 Messer Griesheim A possible market or customer groups, we can see that the company offers to OEMs (Initial Devices Makers), Do-it-Yourself consumers, repair work and upgrading business (MRO) and producers handling items made from leather, wood, plastic and metal. This diversity in consumers recommends that Messer Griesheim A can target has various alternatives in terms of segmenting the marketplace for its brand-new product specifically as each of these groups would be needing the very same kind of product with respective modifications in product packaging, demand or quantity. The consumer is not cost sensitive or brand name mindful so launching a low priced dispenser under Messer Griesheim A name is not a suggested alternative.
Messer Griesheim A is not just a manufacturer of adhesives but enjoys market leadership in the instantaneous adhesive industry. The company has its own proficient and qualified sales force which adds value to sales by training the company's network of 250 suppliers for helping with the sale of adhesives. Messer Griesheim A believes in special distribution as shown by the truth that it has selected to offer through 250 suppliers whereas there is t a network of 10000 distributors that can be checked out for broadening reach through distributors. The company's reach is not limited to The United States and Canada just as it also delights in international sales. With 1400 outlets spread all throughout The United States and Canada, Messer Griesheim A has its internal production plants rather than utilizing out-sourcing as the favored method.
Core skills are not restricted to adhesive manufacturing only as Messer Griesheim A likewise specializes in making adhesive giving devices to facilitate the use of its items. This double production technique provides Messer Griesheim A an edge over rivals given that none of the competitors of dispensing equipment makes immediate adhesives. Furthermore, none of these rivals sells straight to the consumer either and uses distributors for connecting to consumers. While we are looking at the strengths of Messer Griesheim A, it is crucial to highlight the company's weak points.
The business's sales staff is knowledgeable in training distributors, the truth stays that the sales team is not trained in selling equipment so there is a possibility of relying heavily on suppliers when promoting adhesive equipment. However, it must also be noted that the distributors are revealing hesitation when it concerns selling devices that needs servicing which increases the obstacles of selling devices under a specific brand.
If we look at Messer Griesheim A line of product in adhesive equipment especially, the company has actually products targeted at the high end of the market. If Messer Griesheim A sells Case Study Help under the same portfolio, the possibility of sales cannibalization exists. Given the truth that Case Study Help is priced lower than Messer Griesheim A high-end product line, sales cannibalization would definitely be impacting Messer Griesheim A sales revenue if the adhesive equipment is offered under the company's brand.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting Messer Griesheim A 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. If Case Study Help is released under the business's brand name, there is another possible risk which might decrease Messer Griesheim A revenue. The truth that $175000 has actually been invested in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a great 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 instant adhesive.
Furthermore, if we take a look at the market in general, the adhesives market does disappoint brand name orientation or rate awareness which provides us two additional reasons for not releasing a low priced item under the company's brand name.
The competitive environment of Messer Griesheim A would be studied through 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 especially as the purchaser has low understanding about the item. While business like Messer Griesheim A have handled to train distributors concerning adhesives, the last consumer depends on distributors. Roughly 72% of sales are made directly by producers and suppliers for instantaneous adhesives so the purchaser has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Given the reality that the adhesive market is controlled by 3 players, it could be said that the supplier 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 show brand recognition or price sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the buyer and the manufacturer do not have a major 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 loyalty and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese competitors in the instant adhesive market indicates that the marketplace permits ease of entry. However, if we take a look at Messer Griesheim A in particular, the business has dual abilities in regards to being a producer of adhesive dispensers and instant adhesives. Prospective dangers in devices dispensing industry are low which shows the possibility of producing brand awareness in not only instant adhesives however also in dispensing adhesives as none of the market gamers has managed to position itself in dual abilities.
Hazard of Substitutes: The threat of alternatives in the instantaneous adhesive market is low while the dispenser market in particular has replacements like Glumetic tip applicators, in-built applicators, pencil applicators and sophisticated consoles. The truth stays that if Messer Griesheim A introduced Case Study Help, it would be delighting in sales cannibalization for its own products. (see appendix 1 for structure).

Not just 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 usage with SuperBonder. The product would be sold without the 'glumetic pointer' and 'vari-drop' so that the customer can decide whether he wants to go with either of the two accessories or not.
Price: The suggested price of Case Study Help has been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is sold through distributors or through direct selling.
