The following section focuses on the of marketing for Millegan Creek Apartments where the business's consumers, competitors and core competencies have actually examined in order to validate whether the decision to release Case Study Help under Millegan Creek Apartments brand would be a practical option or not. We have firstly looked at the type of consumers that Millegan Creek Apartments handle while an evaluation of the competitive environment and the business's weak points and strengths follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the reason for not introducing Case Study Help under Millegan Creek Apartments name.
Millegan Creek Apartments clients can be segmented into 2 groups, commercial clients and final consumers. Both the groups use Millegan Creek Apartments high performance adhesives while the company is not only associated with the production of these adhesives however likewise markets them to these customer groups. There are two kinds of items that are being offered to these possible markets; immediate adhesives and anaerobic adhesives. We would be focusing on the consumers of immediate adhesives for this analysis given that the market for the latter has a lower potential for Millegan Creek Apartments compared to that of instantaneous adhesives.
The total market for instant adhesives is around 890,000 in the United States in 1978 which covers both consumer groups which have been identified earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of Millegan Creek Apartments potential market or client groups, we can see that the company offers to OEMs (Initial Equipment Producers), Do-it-Yourself clients, repair and revamping companies (MRO) and manufacturers dealing in products made from leather, metal, wood and plastic. This diversity in customers suggests that Millegan Creek Apartments can target has different options in regards to segmenting the marketplace for its brand-new product particularly as each of these groups would be requiring the same type of item with respective changes in product packaging, amount or need. However, the customer is not rate sensitive or brand name mindful so introducing a low priced dispenser under Millegan Creek Apartments name is not a recommended option.
Millegan Creek Apartments is not just a producer of adhesives however takes pleasure in market management in the immediate adhesive market. The company has its own proficient and certified sales force which adds worth to sales by training the business's network of 250 distributors for facilitating the sale of adhesives.
Core competences are not limited to adhesive production only as Millegan Creek Apartments also focuses on making adhesive giving equipment to help with making use of its items. This dual production method gives Millegan Creek Apartments an edge over competitors since none of the rivals of dispensing equipment makes immediate adhesives. Furthermore, none of these rivals sells straight to the customer either and uses suppliers for connecting to customers. While we are looking at the strengths of Millegan Creek Apartments, it is very important to highlight the business's weaknesses too.
Although the business's sales staff is proficient 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 distributors when promoting adhesive devices. Nevertheless, it needs to likewise be kept in mind that the suppliers are revealing reluctance when it comes to selling devices that needs servicing which increases the difficulties of offering equipment under a specific trademark name.
The company has products aimed at the high end of the market if we look at Millegan Creek Apartments item line in adhesive devices particularly.

Given the fact that Case Study Help is priced lower than Millegan Creek Apartments high-end line of product, sales cannibalization would definitely be impacting Millegan Creek Apartments sales revenue if the adhesive devices is offered under the business's brand name.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting Millegan Creek Apartments 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. If Case Study Help is introduced under the business's brand name, there is another possible danger which could reduce Millegan Creek Apartments income. The reality that $175000 has actually been invested in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a good 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 immediate adhesive.
In addition, if we take a look at the market in general, the adhesives market does not show brand name orientation or rate consciousness which offers us two additional factors for not launching a low priced item under the business's brand name.
The competitive environment of Millegan Creek Apartments would be studied via Porter's 5 forces analysis which would highlight the degree of competition in the market.

Approximately 72% of sales are made straight by manufacturers and distributors for instantaneous adhesives so the purchaser has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Given the reality that the adhesive market is dominated by 3 players, it could be said that the supplier delights in a higher bargaining power compared to the purchaser. Nevertheless, the fact stays that the provider does not have much influence over the buyer at this moment particularly as the buyer does disappoint brand recognition or price level of sensitivity. This indicates that the supplier has the greater power when it pertains to the adhesive market while the buyer and the maker do not have a significant control over the actual sales.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand commitment and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the instantaneous adhesive market shows that the marketplace allows ease of entry. Nevertheless, if we look at Millegan Creek Apartments in particular, the company has dual capabilities in regards to being a producer of instantaneous adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Potential hazards in devices dispensing market are low which reveals the possibility of creating brand awareness in not only immediate adhesives however likewise in dispensing adhesives as none of the market players has actually managed to position itself in double capabilities.

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