The competitive environment of Sun Life Financial Planning For The Future would be studied through 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 particularly as the purchaser has low understanding about the product.

The fact stays that the provider does not have much influence over the purchaser at this point specifically as the buyer does not reveal brand acknowledgment or rate level of sensitivity. This suggests that the distributor has the higher power when it pertains to the adhesive market while the buyer and the manufacturer do not have a major control over the actual sales.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand commitment and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese competitors in the immediate adhesive market suggests that the market allows ease of entry. If we look at Sun Life Financial Planning For The Future in particular, the company has dual abilities in terms of being a manufacturer of instant adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Prospective threats in devices giving industry are low which reveals the possibility of creating brand awareness in not just instant adhesives but likewise in giving adhesives as none of the market players has actually handled to position itself in double capabilities.
Threat of Substitutes: The hazard of alternatives in the instant adhesive market is low while the dispenser market in particular has substitutes like Glumetic suggestion applicators, inbuilt applicators, pencil applicators and advanced consoles.

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