However, the truth stays that the provider does not have much influence over the buyer at this point particularly as the buyer does not show brand recognition or cost 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 greater 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 suggests that the marketplace permits ease of entry. If we look at Transfer Pricing At Timken in specific, the company has dual capabilities in terms of being a manufacturer of adhesive dispensers and immediate adhesives.
