There are two types of items that are being offered to these possible markets; anaerobic adhesives and immediate adhesives. We would be concentrating on the consumers of instant adhesives for this analysis given that the market for the latter has a lower potential for Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version compared to that of instant adhesives.
The total market for immediate adhesives is roughly 890,000 in the US in 1978 which covers both client groups which have been identified earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version prospective market or client groups, we can see that the business sells to OEMs (Initial Equipment Makers), Do-it-Yourself clients, repair and overhauling business (MRO) and manufacturers handling products made from leather, wood, metal and plastic.

However, the client is not price delicate or brand conscious so launching a low priced dispenser under Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version name is not a suggested option.
Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version is not simply a producer of adhesives however enjoys market management in the instant adhesive industry. The company has its own proficient and competent sales force which adds value to sales by training the company's network of 250 distributors for assisting in the sale of adhesives.
Core competences are not limited to adhesive manufacturing only as Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version likewise specializes in making adhesive dispensing devices to facilitate using its items. This double production strategy provides Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version an edge over competitors because none of the competitors of dispensing devices makes instantaneous adhesives. In addition, none of these rivals offers straight to the customer either and utilizes distributors for reaching out to consumers. While we are looking at the strengths of Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version, it is very important to highlight the company's weaknesses also.
The business's sales personnel is experienced in training distributors, the fact stays that the sales group is not trained in offering devices so there is a possibility of relying heavily on suppliers when promoting adhesive equipment. Nevertheless, it should also be kept in mind that the suppliers are revealing unwillingness when it pertains to offering devices that needs servicing which increases the challenges of selling devices under a specific brand.

Provided the reality that Case Study Help is priced lower than Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version high-end line of product, sales cannibalization would definitely be impacting Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version sales income if the adhesive equipment is offered under the company's trademark name.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. There is another possible risk which might lower Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version revenue if Case Study Help is introduced under the company's brand name. The truth that $175000 has actually been spent in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a good time for introducing 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.
Additionally, if we look at the market in general, the adhesives market does not show brand name orientation or price consciousness which provides us 2 additional factors for not introducing a low priced item under the company's trademark name.
The competitive environment of Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version 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 buyer in this market is low especially as the buyer has low knowledge about the product. While companies like Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version have managed to train distributors concerning adhesives, the final consumer depends on suppliers. Approximately 72% of sales are made directly by producers and distributors for instantaneous adhesives so the buyer has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Provided the truth that the adhesive market is controlled by 3 players, it could be stated that the supplier enjoys a higher bargaining power compared to the buyer. The truth remains that the supplier does not have much influence over the purchaser at this point specifically as the purchaser does not show brand name recognition or rate 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 significant 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 rivals in the instant adhesive market suggests that the market permits ease of entry. If we look at Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version in particular, the business has dual capabilities in terms of being a producer of adhesive dispensers and immediate adhesives. Possible hazards in devices giving market are low which shows the possibility of creating brand name awareness in not just immediate adhesives however also in giving adhesives as none of the industry gamers has actually managed to position itself in dual capabilities.
Threat of Substitutes: The risk of alternatives in the immediate adhesive market is low while the dispenser market in particular has alternatives like Glumetic suggestion applicators, inbuilt applicators, pencil applicators and sophisticated consoles.

This market has an additional growth potential of 10.1% which may be a good enough niche market sector for Case Study Help. Not only would a portable dispenser offer benefit to this particular market, the truth that the Diy market can also be targeted if a drinkable low priced adhesive is being sold for usage with SuperBonder. The item would be offered without the 'glumetic pointer' and 'vari-drop' so that the customer can choose whether he wants to opt for either of the two devices or not.
Price: The recommended rate of Case Study Help has actually been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is offered through suppliers or by means of direct selling. This cost would not include the expense of the 'vari pointer' or the 'glumetic idea'.

Place: A circulation model where Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version directly sends out the item to the local supplier and keeps a 10% drop shipment allowance for the supplier would be utilized by Superior Manufacturing Co Chinese Version.
