The following section focuses on the 3Cs of marketing for Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation where the company's customers, competitors and core proficiencies have actually assessed in order to justify whether the decision to release Case Study Help under Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation brand name would be a possible option or not. We have actually to start with looked at the type of clients that Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation deals in while an assessment of the competitive environment and the company's strengths and weaknesses follows. Embedded in the 3C analysis is the validation for not introducing Case Study Help under Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation name.
Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation clients can be segmented into two groups, last customers and commercial consumers. Both the groups use Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation high performance adhesives while the company is not only associated with the production of these adhesives but likewise markets them to these client groups. There are 2 kinds of products that are being sold to these prospective markets; anaerobic adhesives and instant adhesives. We would be concentrating on the consumers of instantaneous adhesives for this analysis because the marketplace for the latter has a lower capacity for Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation compared to that of immediate adhesives.
The total market for instantaneous adhesives is roughly 890,000 in the United States in 1978 which covers both client groups which have been recognized earlier.If we take a look at a breakdown of Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation possible market or consumer groups, we can see that the business offers to OEMs (Original Devices Manufacturers), Do-it-Yourself consumers, repair work and revamping companies (MRO) and makers handling products made from leather, metal, plastic and wood. This diversity in clients suggests that Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation can target has different alternatives in terms of segmenting the market for its new product especially as each of these groups would be requiring the same kind of item with respective modifications in packaging, quantity or need. Nevertheless, the consumer is not cost delicate or brand name mindful so releasing a low priced dispenser under Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation name is not an advised option.
Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation is not just a producer of adhesives however enjoys market leadership in the immediate adhesive industry. The company has its own knowledgeable and competent sales force which includes value to sales by training the business's network of 250 distributors for helping with the sale of adhesives.
Core competences are not limited to adhesive manufacturing only as Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation also specializes in making adhesive giving equipment to assist in using its items. This double production strategy provides Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation an edge over rivals because none of the rivals of giving equipment makes immediate adhesives. Additionally, none of these rivals sells straight to the customer either and makes use of distributors for reaching out to consumers. While we are looking at the strengths of Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation, it is crucial to highlight the business's weaknesses.
Although the company's sales personnel is skilled in training distributors, the reality remains that the sales group is not trained in offering equipment so there is a possibility of relying greatly on suppliers when promoting adhesive devices. It must also be noted that the distributors are revealing unwillingness when it comes to offering equipment that needs maintenance which increases the difficulties of offering devices under a particular brand name.
If we take a look at Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation product line in adhesive devices particularly, the business has products aimed at the luxury of the marketplace. The possibility of sales cannibalization exists if Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation offers Case Study Help under the same portfolio. Provided the reality that Case Study Help is priced lower than Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation high-end product line, sales cannibalization would definitely be affecting Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation sales earnings if the adhesive equipment is sold under the business's brand.
We can see sales cannibalization impacting Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation 27A Pencil Applicator which is priced at $275. There is another possible risk which could lower Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation profits if Case Study Help is released under the business's brand name. The reality that $175000 has been spent in promoting SuperBonder suggests that it is not a good time for launching a dispenser which can highlight the fact that SuperBonder can get logged and Case Study Help is the anti-clogging solution for the immediate adhesive.
Furthermore, if we take a look at the market in general, the adhesives market does not show brand orientation or cost consciousness which offers us 2 extra factors for not launching a low priced item under the company's trademark name.
The competitive environment of Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation would be studied via Porter's five forces analysis which would highlight the degree of competition 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 item. While companies like Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation have managed to train suppliers concerning adhesives, the last consumer depends on distributors. Roughly 72% of sales are made directly by manufacturers and distributors for instantaneous adhesives so the buyer has a low bargaining power.
Bargaining Power of Supplier: Offered the reality that the adhesive market is dominated by 3 players, it could be stated that the supplier enjoys a higher bargaining power compared to the buyer. The truth remains that the provider does not have much influence over the purchaser at this point specifically as the purchaser does not reveal brand acknowledgment or price level of sensitivity. When it comes to the adhesive market while the buyer and the manufacturer do not have a significant control over the real sales, this indicates that the distributor has the greater power.
Threat of new entrants: The competitive environment with its low brand commitment and the ease of entry shown by foreign Japanese competitors in the instant adhesive market shows that the marketplace enables ease of entry. However, if we take a look at Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation in particular, the business has double capabilities in regards to being a producer of instant adhesives and adhesive dispensers. Potential dangers in equipment dispensing industry are low which reveals the possibility of producing brand awareness in not only immediate adhesives but likewise in giving adhesives as none of the market gamers has actually handled to position itself in dual abilities.
Threat of Substitutes: The danger of alternatives in the immediate adhesive market is low while the dispenser market in particular has replacements like Glumetic pointer applicators, inbuilt applicators, pencil applicators and advanced consoles. The truth stays that if Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation presented Case Study Help, it would be enjoying sales cannibalization for its own items. (see appendix 1 for structure).
Despite the fact that our 3C analysis has given different reasons for not releasing Case Study Help under Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation name, we have a suggested marketing mix for Case Study Help offered listed below if Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation chooses to go on with the launch.
Product & Target Market: The target audience picked for Case Study Help is 'Motor vehicle services' for a variety of reasons. There are presently 89257 facilities in this segment and a high usage of roughly 58900 lbs. is being used by 36.1 % of the market. This market has an extra development potential of 10.1% which may be a sufficient specific niche market section for Case Study Help. Not only would a portable dispenser deal convenience to this particular market, the fact that the Diy market can also be targeted if a potable low priced adhesive is being sold for usage with SuperBonder. The item would be sold without the 'glumetic tip' and 'vari-drop' so that the customer can decide whether he wants to select either of the two accessories or not.
Price: The suggested rate of Case Study Help has been kept at $175 to the end user whether it is offered through distributors or by means of direct selling. A rate listed below $250 would not need approvals from the senior management in case a mechanic at a motor automobile upkeep shop requires to purchase the product on his own.
Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation would just be getting $157 per unit as displayed in appendix 2 which offers a breakdown of gross profitability and net profitability for Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation for releasing Case Study Help.
Place: A circulation model where Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation directly sends out the item to the regional distributor and keeps a 10% drop shipment allowance for the supplier would be used by Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation. Given that the sales group is already taken part in offering instantaneous adhesives and they do not have knowledge in offering dispensers, including them in the selling procedure would be pricey particularly as each sales call expenses roughly $120. The suppliers are currently selling dispensers so selling Case Study Help through them would be a beneficial choice.
Promotion: A low marketing budget plan should have been designated to Case Study Help but the truth that the dispenser is an innovation and it requires to be marketed well in order to cover the capital costs sustained for production, the recommended marketing strategy costing $51816 is recommended for at first introducing the item in the market. The planned ads in magazines would be targeted at mechanics in automobile maintenance shops. (Recommended text for the ad is shown in appendix 3 while the 4Ps are summed up in appendix 4).
