Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand name commitment and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese competitors in the immediate adhesive market indicates that the market enables ease of entry. However, if we take a look at Valuation At Novartis in particular, the business has dual capabilities in terms of being a producer of instantaneous adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Possible dangers in devices dispensing industry are low which shows the possibility of developing brand awareness in not only immediate adhesives however also in giving adhesives as none of the market players has actually handled to place itself in double capabilities.
