Pinewood Mobile Homes Inc believes in unique distribution as suggested by the truth that it has chosen to offer through 250 distributors whereas there is t a network of 10000 distributors that can be explored for broadening reach by means of suppliers. The company's reach is not limited to North America just as it also delights in international sales.

Bargaining Power of Supplier: Provided the truth that the adhesive market is controlled by three players, it could be said that the provider delights in a greater bargaining power compared to the purchaser. However, the truth stays that the provider does not have much impact over the purchaser at this moment particularly as the buyer does disappoint brand recognition or rate sensitivity. This suggests that the distributor has the higher power when it concerns the adhesive market while the buyer and the producer do not have a significant control over the real sales.
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 market enables ease of entry.
