Boots Plc Japan Market Entry is not simply a producer of adhesives but enjoys market leadership in the instant adhesive market. The company has its own proficient and certified sales force which adds worth to sales by training the company's network of 250 distributors for facilitating the sale of adhesives. Boots Plc Japan Market Entry believes in exclusive distribution as suggested by the fact that it has picked to sell through 250 distributors whereas there is t a network of 10000 distributors that can be checked out for broadening reach via suppliers.

Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand loyalty and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese rivals in the immediate adhesive market indicates that the market permits ease of entry.
