There are two kinds of products that are being offered to these possible markets; instant adhesives and anaerobic adhesives. We would be focusing on the consumers of instant adhesives for this analysis considering that the marketplace for the latter has a lower potential for The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers compared to that of instantaneous adhesives.

The customer is not price sensitive or brand name conscious so releasing a low priced dispenser under The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers name is not an advised option.
The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers is not just a manufacturer of adhesives but enjoys market management in the immediate adhesive market. The business has its own skilled and certified sales force which includes worth to sales by training the company's network of 250 distributors for facilitating the sale of adhesives.
Core competences are not limited to adhesive manufacturing just as The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers also specializes in making adhesive giving equipment to assist in making use of its items.

Furthermore, none of these competitors offers directly to the customer either and uses distributors for connecting to consumers. While we are looking at the strengths of The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers, it is important to highlight the company's weak points.
The company's sales staff is experienced in training distributors, the truth remains that the sales group is not trained in selling equipment so there is a possibility of relying heavily on suppliers when promoting adhesive devices. However, it must likewise be kept in mind that the suppliers are showing unwillingness when it concerns offering equipment that needs servicing which increases the challenges of selling equipment under a particular brand name.
The business has products intended at the high end of the market if we look at The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers product line in adhesive equipment especially. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers sells Case Study Help under the exact same portfolio. Provided the fact that Case Study Help is priced lower than The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers high-end product line, sales cannibalization would definitely be affecting The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers sales income if the adhesive devices is sold under the company's trademark name.

The reality that $175000 has actually been invested in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a great time for releasing 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.
In addition, if we look at the marketplace in general, the adhesives market does disappoint brand orientation or cost awareness which offers us two extra factors for not launching a low priced item under the company's trademark name.
The competitive environment of The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers would be studied by means of Porter's 5 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 particularly as the purchaser has low knowledge about the product. While business like The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers have handled to train distributors relating to adhesives, the last customer depends on suppliers. Around 72% of sales are made directly by producers and suppliers for instant adhesives so the buyer has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Given the truth that the adhesive market is controlled by three gamers, it could be stated that the provider enjoys a greater bargaining power compared to the buyer. The fact remains that the provider does not have much influence over the purchaser at this point specifically as the purchaser does not show brand name acknowledgment or rate sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the maker and the purchaser do not have a major control over the actual sales, this suggests that the distributor has the higher power.
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 marketplace allows ease of entry. Nevertheless, if we take a look at The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers in particular, the company has dual capabilities in terms of being a manufacturer of instantaneous adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Possible threats in equipment dispensing industry are low which reveals the possibility of developing brand awareness in not just instant adhesives but also in dispensing adhesives as none of the market players has managed to place itself in double capabilities.
Hazard of Substitutes: The danger of alternatives in the instant adhesive market is low while the dispenser market in particular has alternatives like Glumetic suggestion applicators, in-built applicators, pencil applicators and sophisticated consoles. The truth stays that if The Rise And Fall Of Lehman Brothers presented Case Study Help, it would be delighting in sales cannibalization for its own products. (see appendix 1 for structure).

This market has an extra development capacity of 10.1% which may be a sufficient specific niche market sector for Case Study Help. Not only would a portable dispenser deal convenience to this particular market, the reality that the Diy market can likewise be targeted if a drinkable low priced adhesive is being sold for usage with SuperBonder. The product would be sold without the 'glumetic tip' and 'vari-drop' so that the customer can decide whether he wants to opt for either of the two accessories or not.
Price: The suggested price of Case Study Help has been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is sold through distributors or through direct selling. This cost would not include the cost of the 'vari tip' or the 'glumetic pointer'. A rate listed below $250 would not need approvals from the senior management in case a mechanic at a motor vehicle maintenance shop needs to acquire the item on his own.
