Both the groups use Milk And Money high performance adhesives while the company is not just associated with the production of these adhesives however also markets them to these consumer groups. There are two types of products that are being sold to these prospective markets; instantaneous adhesives and anaerobic adhesives.

The overall market for instantaneous adhesives is approximately 890,000 in the United States in 1978 which covers both consumer groups which have actually been determined earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of Milk And Money possible market or client groups, we can see that the business offers to OEMs (Original Devices Makers), Do-it-Yourself clients, repair and revamping business (MRO) and manufacturers dealing in products made of leather, wood, plastic and metal.

Nevertheless, the customer is not rate delicate or brand name mindful so launching a low priced dispenser under Milk And Money name is not an advised option.
Milk And Money is not simply a maker of adhesives however takes pleasure in market leadership in the immediate adhesive market. The company has its own skilled and qualified sales force which includes worth to sales by training the company's network of 250 distributors for helping with the sale of adhesives. Milk And Money believes in exclusive distribution as suggested by the reality that it has actually selected to offer through 250 distributors whereas there is t a network of 10000 suppliers that can be checked out for broadening reach via suppliers. The company's reach is not restricted to North America just as it also enjoys worldwide sales. With 1400 outlets spread out all across North America, Milk And Money has its internal production plants rather than using out-sourcing as the favored technique.
Core competences are not limited to adhesive production only as Milk And Money likewise specializes in making adhesive dispensing devices to facilitate the use of its items.

It should likewise be kept in mind that the distributors are revealing reluctance when it comes to offering equipment that requires servicing which increases the challenges of selling equipment under a particular brand name.
The business has products intended at the high end of the market if we look at Milk And Money product line in adhesive equipment especially. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if Milk And Money sells Case Study Help under the same portfolio. Given the fact that Case Study Help is priced lower than Milk And Money high-end line of product, sales cannibalization would absolutely be affecting Milk And Money sales profits if the adhesive devices is sold under the business's brand name.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting Milk And Money 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. There is another possible threat which could decrease Milk And Money revenue if Case Study Help is released under the company's brand name. The reality that $175000 has been spent in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a good time for launching a dispenser which can highlight the truth that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the instantaneous adhesive.
In addition, if we look at the marketplace in general, the adhesives market does not show brand name orientation or cost consciousness which gives us 2 extra reasons for not releasing a low priced product under the business's brand.
The competitive environment of Milk And Money would be studied through Porter's 5 forces analysis which would highlight the degree of rivalry in the market.

Bargaining Power of Supplier: Provided the reality that the adhesive market is dominated by 3 gamers, it could be said that the supplier enjoys a greater bargaining power compared to the buyer. The fact remains that the supplier does not have much impact over the purchaser at this point especially as the purchaser does not reveal brand name recognition or cost level of sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the purchaser and the maker do not have a significant control over the real sales, this suggests that the distributor has the greater power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand loyalty and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese rivals in the immediate adhesive market suggests that the market enables ease of entry. If we look at Milk And Money in particular, the business has double abilities in terms of being a maker of instant adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Possible dangers in equipment dispensing market are low which shows the possibility of developing brand awareness in not just instant adhesives however likewise in giving adhesives as none of the industry gamers has managed to place itself in dual abilities.
Hazard of Substitutes: The risk of replacements in the immediate adhesive industry is low while the dispenser market in particular has replacements like Glumetic pointer applicators, in-built applicators, pencil applicators and sophisticated consoles. The fact stays that if Milk And Money presented Case Study Help, it would be delighting in sales cannibalization for its own products. (see appendix 1 for structure).

Price: The suggested price of Case Study Help has been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is offered through suppliers or via direct selling.
