The competitive environment of Zefer November 1998 Spanish Version 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 especially as the buyer has low knowledge about the product.

The truth stays that the provider does not have much impact over the buyer at this point particularly as the purchaser does not show brand recognition or rate level of sensitivity. This suggests that the supplier has the higher power when it concerns the adhesive market while the buyer and the maker 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 shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the instantaneous adhesive market shows that the marketplace allows ease of entry. Nevertheless, if we look at Zefer November 1998 Spanish Version in particular, the business has dual capabilities in regards to being a manufacturer of immediate adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Potential threats in devices giving industry are low which reveals the possibility of creating brand awareness in not only instantaneous adhesives but also in giving adhesives as none of the market players has managed to place itself in double abilities.
