We have first of all looked at the kind of clients that The Cs Robinson Ford Merger deals in 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 introducing Case Study Help under The Cs Robinson Ford Merger name.
The Cs Robinson Ford Merger consumers can be segmented into 2 groups, last consumers and industrial consumers. Both the groups use The Cs Robinson Ford Merger high performance adhesives while the company is not just involved in the production of these adhesives but likewise markets them to these customer groups. There are 2 kinds of products that are being sold to these potential markets; instantaneous adhesives and anaerobic adhesives. We would be concentrating on the consumers of instant adhesives for this analysis given that the market for the latter has a lower capacity for The Cs Robinson Ford Merger compared to that of instant adhesives.
The overall market for instant adhesives is roughly 890,000 in the United States in 1978 which covers both customer groups which have been determined earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of The Cs Robinson Ford Merger potential market or consumer groups, we can see that the company sells to OEMs (Initial Equipment Manufacturers), Do-it-Yourself consumers, repair and upgrading companies (MRO) and manufacturers handling products made of leather, metal, wood and plastic. This variety in consumers suggests that The Cs Robinson Ford Merger can target has various options in regards to segmenting the market for its brand-new product especially as each of these groups would be needing the same type of product with respective changes in need, packaging or amount. The consumer is not price sensitive or brand conscious so introducing a low priced dispenser under The Cs Robinson Ford Merger name is not an advised choice.
The Cs Robinson Ford Merger is not just a maker of adhesives but takes pleasure in market management in the instantaneous adhesive market. The business has its own experienced and qualified sales force which adds value to sales by training the business's network of 250 distributors for helping with the sale of adhesives. The Cs Robinson Ford Merger believes in special distribution as shown by the reality that it has actually chosen to offer through 250 suppliers whereas there is t a network of 10000 distributors that can be explored for expanding reach through suppliers. The company's reach is not restricted to North America just as it likewise enjoys global sales. With 1400 outlets spread all throughout North America, The Cs Robinson Ford Merger has its in-house production plants instead of utilizing out-sourcing as the preferred method.
Core skills are not restricted to adhesive production just as The Cs Robinson Ford Merger also concentrates on making adhesive dispensing devices to assist in using its items. This double production technique gives The Cs Robinson Ford Merger an edge over rivals considering that none of the competitors of giving equipment makes instant adhesives. Furthermore, none of these competitors sells straight to the consumer either and uses distributors for connecting to clients. While we are taking a look at the strengths of The Cs Robinson Ford Merger, it is very important to highlight the business's weak points also.
Although the business's sales personnel is competent in training distributors, the truth remains that the sales group is not trained in offering equipment so there is a possibility of relying greatly on suppliers when promoting adhesive equipment. Nevertheless, it needs to also be kept in mind that the distributors are showing hesitation when it pertains to offering devices that requires maintenance which increases the difficulties of offering devices under a specific brand.
The company has products intended at the high end of the market if we look at The Cs Robinson Ford Merger product line in adhesive equipment particularly. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if The Cs Robinson Ford Merger sells Case Study Help under the same portfolio. Offered the reality that Case Study Help is priced lower than The Cs Robinson Ford Merger high-end line of product, sales cannibalization would certainly be affecting The Cs Robinson Ford Merger sales profits if the adhesive equipment is offered under the company's brand.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting The Cs Robinson Ford Merger 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. If Case Study Help is launched under the business's brand name, there is another possible risk which could reduce The Cs Robinson Ford Merger profits. The fact that $175000 has actually been spent in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a great time for introducing a dispenser which can highlight the reality that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the instantaneous adhesive.
Additionally, if we take a look at the market in general, the adhesives market does not show brand orientation or rate awareness which gives us two extra factors for not launching a low priced item under the company's trademark name.
The competitive environment of The Cs Robinson Ford Merger 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 buyer in this industry is low specifically as the purchaser has low knowledge about the product. While companies like The Cs Robinson Ford Merger have actually handled to train suppliers regarding adhesives, the last consumer is dependent on suppliers. Around 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 dominated by 3 gamers, it could be said that the provider enjoys a greater bargaining power compared to the buyer. The reality remains that the supplier does not have much influence over the buyer at this point particularly as the purchaser does not show brand acknowledgment or rate sensitivity. This suggests that the distributor has the higher power when it concerns the adhesive market while the manufacturer and the buyer do not have a significant control over the actual sales.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name loyalty and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the immediate adhesive market shows that the marketplace enables ease of entry. If we look at The Cs Robinson Ford Merger in particular, the company has dual abilities in terms of being a maker of adhesive dispensers and immediate adhesives. Prospective hazards in equipment giving market are low which shows the possibility of developing brand name awareness in not just immediate adhesives but likewise in dispensing adhesives as none of the industry players has handled to position itself in double abilities.
Danger of Substitutes: The danger of replacements in the immediate adhesive industry is low while the dispenser market in particular has substitutes like Glumetic tip applicators, in-built applicators, pencil applicators and advanced consoles. The reality remains that if The Cs Robinson Ford Merger presented Case Study Help, it would be enjoying sales cannibalization for its own products. (see appendix 1 for structure).

Product & Target Market: The target market chosen for Case Study Help is 'Motor vehicle services' for a number of reasons. This market has an extra growth potential of 10.1% which might be a great sufficient specific niche market sector for Case Study Help.

Price: The suggested cost of Case Study Help has been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is sold through suppliers or via direct selling. A cost listed below $250 would not require approvals from the senior management in case a mechanic at a motor lorry upkeep store requires to purchase the item on his own.
The Cs Robinson Ford Merger would only be getting $157 per unit as shown in appendix 2 which gives a breakdown of gross success and net profitability for The Cs Robinson Ford Merger for launching Case Study Help.
Place: A distribution model where The Cs Robinson Ford Merger straight sends the product to the local distributor and keeps a 10% drop delivery allowance for the supplier would be utilized by The Cs Robinson Ford Merger. Since the sales team is currently participated in selling instantaneous adhesives and they do not have expertise in selling dispensers, involving them in the selling procedure would be pricey particularly as each sales call expenses roughly $120. The distributors are already offering dispensers so selling Case Study Help through them would be a favorable choice.
Promotion: Although a low promotional budget plan ought to have been assigned to Case Study Help but the fact that the dispenser is an innovation and it needs to be marketed well in order to cover the capital expenses incurred for production, the suggested marketing plan costing $51816 is recommended for initially presenting the product in the market.
