The following section focuses on the of marketing for Tapestry Networks where the business's clients, competitors and core competencies have actually evaluated in order to validate whether the decision to introduce Case Study Help under Tapestry Networks trademark name would be a practical alternative or not. We have actually first of all taken a look at the type of clients that Tapestry Networks handle while an examination of the competitive environment and the company's weak points and strengths follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the validation for not releasing Case Study Help under Tapestry Networks name.
Both the groups use Tapestry Networks high efficiency adhesives while the company is not only involved in the production of these adhesives but also markets them to these consumer groups. We would be focusing on the customers of instant adhesives for this analysis given that the market for the latter has a lower potential for Tapestry Networks compared to that of instant adhesives.
The overall market for instant adhesives is approximately 890,000 in the US in 1978 which covers both customer groups which have been determined earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of Tapestry Networks possible market or consumer groups, we can see that the company offers to OEMs (Initial Devices Makers), Do-it-Yourself clients, repair work and overhauling business (MRO) and manufacturers dealing in products made of leather, metal, wood and plastic. This variety in consumers suggests that Tapestry Networks can target has various options in regards to segmenting the market for its new item specifically as each of these groups would be needing the same kind of item with respective changes in demand, amount or packaging. However, the client is not cost delicate or brand conscious so launching a low priced dispenser under Tapestry Networks name is not a recommended option.
Tapestry Networks is not simply a producer of adhesives but takes pleasure in market management in the instant adhesive market. The company has its own knowledgeable and qualified sales force which includes worth to sales by training the business's network of 250 distributors for facilitating the sale of adhesives. Tapestry Networks believes in exclusive circulation as shown by the fact that it has actually picked to sell through 250 suppliers whereas there is t a network of 10000 suppliers that can be checked out for broadening reach by means of suppliers. The business's reach is not restricted to The United States and Canada just as it likewise takes pleasure in global sales. With 1400 outlets spread out all throughout North America, Tapestry Networks has its internal production plants rather than using out-sourcing as the preferred technique.
Core competences are not limited to adhesive manufacturing just as Tapestry Networks likewise specializes in making adhesive giving equipment to help with using its products. This double production technique offers Tapestry Networks an edge over competitors given that none of the rivals of dispensing equipment makes immediate adhesives. In addition, none of these rivals offers straight to the consumer either and makes use of suppliers for connecting to consumers. While we are looking at the strengths of Tapestry Networks, it is crucial to highlight the business's weak points.
Although the company's sales staff is competent in training suppliers, the truth stays that the sales group is not trained in offering devices so there is a possibility of relying greatly on suppliers when promoting adhesive equipment. However, it should likewise be kept in mind that the distributors are revealing hesitation when it concerns selling equipment that requires maintenance which increases the challenges of selling devices under a specific brand.
The business has items intended at the high end of the market if we look at Tapestry Networks item line in adhesive devices particularly. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if Tapestry Networks offers Case Study Help under the very same portfolio. Provided the truth that Case Study Help is priced lower than Tapestry Networks high-end product line, sales cannibalization would certainly be impacting Tapestry Networks sales income if the adhesive devices is offered under the company's brand.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting Tapestry Networks 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. If Case Study Help is released under the business's brand name, there is another possible threat which could lower Tapestry Networks profits. The fact that $175000 has actually been invested in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a good time for launching a dispenser which can highlight the reality that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the instant adhesive.
Furthermore, if we look at the marketplace in general, the adhesives market does disappoint brand name orientation or rate consciousness which provides us 2 additional reasons for not introducing a low priced item under the business's brand name.
The competitive environment of Tapestry Networks would be studied by means of Porter's five forces analysis which would highlight the degree of rivalry in the market.
Bargaining Power of Buyer: The Bargaining power of the purchaser in this market is low especially as the purchaser has low understanding about the item. While companies like Tapestry Networks have managed to train suppliers concerning adhesives, the final consumer depends on distributors. Roughly 72% of sales are made straight by makers and distributors for instantaneous adhesives so the buyer has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Offered the reality that the adhesive market is controlled by three players, it could be stated that the provider delights in a higher bargaining power compared to the purchaser. The truth stays that the supplier does not have much impact over the buyer at this point especially as the buyer does not reveal brand name acknowledgment or rate level of sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the purchaser and the maker do not have a significant control over the actual sales, this shows that the distributor has the higher power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand commitment and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese competitors in the instant adhesive market indicates that the market permits ease of entry. If we look at Tapestry Networks in particular, the company has dual abilities in terms of being a producer of instantaneous adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Prospective risks in devices giving market are low which shows the possibility of creating brand awareness in not only instantaneous adhesives however also in dispensing adhesives as none of the market players has actually managed to position itself in double abilities.
Threat of Substitutes: The risk of alternatives in the instant adhesive market is low while the dispenser market in particular has alternatives like Glumetic pointer applicators, built-in applicators, pencil applicators and sophisticated consoles. The fact stays that if Tapestry Networks presented Case Study Help, it would be delighting in sales cannibalization for its own products. (see appendix 1 for framework).

This market has an extra growth capacity of 10.1% which may be a sufficient niche market segment for Case Study Help. Not just would a portable dispenser deal convenience to this specific market, the reality that the Diy market can also be targeted if a drinkable low priced adhesive is being cost usage with SuperBonder. The product would be sold without the 'glumetic pointer' and 'vari-drop' so that the customer can decide whether he wants to choose either of the two accessories or not.
Price: The recommended rate of Case Study Help has been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is sold through distributors or by means of direct selling.

Tapestry Networks would only be getting $157 per unit as shown in appendix 2 which provides a breakdown of gross success and net success for Tapestry Networks for launching Case Study Help.
Place: A circulation design where Tapestry Networks straight sends the item to the regional supplier and keeps a 10% drop shipment allowance for the supplier would be utilized by Tapestry Networks. Because the sales group is already participated in selling instant adhesives and they do not have expertise in offering dispensers, involving them in the selling procedure would be pricey especially as each sales call expenses around $120. The distributors are currently offering dispensers so offering Case Study Help through them would be a favorable option.
