Both the groups use The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development high efficiency adhesives while the company is not only included in the production of these adhesives however also markets them to these client groups. We would be focusing on the consumers of instant adhesives for this analysis since the market for the latter has a lower capacity for The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development 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 The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development potential market or consumer groups, we can see that the company sells to OEMs (Initial Devices Makers), Do-it-Yourself clients, repair and overhauling companies (MRO) and manufacturers dealing in items made from leather, wood, plastic and metal.

The customer is not cost sensitive or brand name mindful so releasing a low priced dispenser under The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development name is not an advised option.
The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development is not simply a manufacturer of adhesives however delights in market management in the immediate adhesive industry. The company has its own proficient and competent sales force which includes value to sales by training the business's network of 250 distributors for facilitating the sale of adhesives. The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development believes in special distribution as shown by the truth that it has actually selected to offer through 250 distributors whereas there is t a network of 10000 suppliers that can be checked out for expanding reach via distributors. The company's reach is not limited to The United States and Canada only as it also delights in worldwide sales. With 1400 outlets spread all throughout North America, The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development has its internal production plants instead of utilizing out-sourcing as the favored technique.

In addition, none of these competitors offers straight to the consumer either and makes use of suppliers for reaching out to customers. While we are looking at the strengths of The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development, it is important to highlight the company's weaknesses too.
Although the company's sales personnel is proficient in training suppliers, the fact stays that the sales group is not trained in selling devices so there is a possibility of relying heavily on suppliers when promoting adhesive devices. However, it needs to also be noted that the distributors are showing reluctance when it pertains to selling equipment that needs servicing which increases the obstacles of selling devices under a particular trademark name.
The business has products aimed at the high end of the market if we look at The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development product line in adhesive equipment especially.

Provided the fact that Case Study Help is priced lower than The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development high-end line of product, sales cannibalization would definitely be affecting The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development sales income if the adhesive devices is offered under the business's brand.

The reality that $175000 has been invested in promoting SuperBonder recommends that it is not a good 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 immediate adhesive.
In addition, if we look at the market in general, the adhesives market does disappoint brand name orientation or price awareness which provides us two extra reasons for not introducing a low priced item under the company's trademark name.
The competitive environment of The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development 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 industry is low particularly as the buyer has low knowledge about the item.

Bargaining Power of Supplier: Given the fact that the adhesive market is dominated by 3 gamers, it could be said that the supplier enjoys a greater bargaining power compared to the purchaser. However, the fact remains that the provider does not have much influence over the buyer at this point especially as the purchaser does disappoint brand recognition or price sensitivity. This indicates that the distributor has the greater power when it pertains to the adhesive market while the manufacturer and the buyer do not have a major control over the actual sales.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand loyalty and the ease of entry revealed by foreign Japanese competitors in the instant adhesive market shows that the market allows ease of entry. Nevertheless, if we look at The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development in particular, the company has dual abilities in regards to being a maker of adhesive dispensers and instantaneous adhesives. Potential risks in equipment giving industry are low which shows the possibility of developing brand name awareness in not only instantaneous adhesives however also in giving adhesives as none of the industry players has actually managed to place itself in double capabilities.
Hazard of Substitutes: The risk of replacements in the immediate adhesive industry is low while the dispenser market in particular has substitutes like Glumetic idea applicators, inbuilt applicators, pencil applicators and advanced consoles. The reality remains that if The Time Warner Center Mixed Use Development introduced Case Study Help, it would be delighting in sales cannibalization for its own items. (see appendix 1 for framework).

Price: The suggested rate 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.
