Developing a Business Strategy

Words: 1021 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 98736913

Market Selection & Five Forces Strategy Tool
The Intensity of Rivalry
The smartphone manufacturing industry has a high intensity of rivalry based on the rivalry strategy tool. This is because there are many companies that manufacture smartphones and they are all competing to increase their market share of the smartphone industry (Gehani, 2016). The smartphone industry is growing with each passing day making the industry competitive and manufacturers have to ensure that they remain on top or in front of their competitors. There is increasing competition especially from Chinese manufacturers who are developing cheap and high-end smartphones that are attractive and targeted to the low-income earners. This puts a strain on the well-established manufacturers like Apple and Samsung who are left to battle for the top end spectrum of the market. Therefore, for a company to continue leading the smartphone manufacturing industry it should adjust its strategy. Ignoring the emerging…… [Read More]

Market Entry Challenges in Asia Many Companies

Words: 1121 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 59724207

Market Entry Challenges in Asia

Many companies want to move into Asia, but there are market entry challenges that have to be faced there. Still, Asia represents a very important and profitable market for many companies, and it is not unusual for these companies to draw major profits from their overseas operations. EBay, however, has many problems in the Asian markets, and has struggled with these issues in the past (Chan, 2007). In order to understand why this is the case for the company, one must address the 4 Ps (product, place, promotion, and price). By looking at each one of those, a person can get a better idea of why eBay failed in some of the Asian markets and why it performed better in others. In the U.S., eBay is very popular. The same is true for the UK and a few other countries. That does not mean, though,…… [Read More]

Over the last few years, the government has exerted more control on the insurance industry by controlling premium rates meaning the industry has become less competitive on pricing. In addition to this, through Obamacare, the government has set requirements for healthcare insurers which have significantly reduced their medical loss ratio Dinan 396.

The second factor that affects the degree of competitiveness of the industry is the number of companies operating in the industry. This has been the major reason for the hundreds of mergers in the industry since this is the major driving factor for changes in market share. The last factor is government-provided health insurance. The government provides insurance plans which create significant competition for the private companies Vanness and olfe 101()

Market Share and Sales

As stated above, it is impossible to predict total market share in terms of a percentage or direct proportion. The growth in the demand for web development services vastly outstrips supply, and with a large part of the retail sector still untapped in terms of website sales it will be impossible for any small competitor to capture a major portion of market share (Urbach et al. 2009; Mohammed 2008). Sales will only be limited by the potential of the company to produce the products sold, however, meaning a substantial amount of revenue can be generated.

Ongoing Market Evaluation

Statistics and market trends are regularly calculated, compiled, and published by a variety of individuals and organizations, including the Canadian national government, which will allow for the continuous monitoring of relevant data and potential impacts on the market (Office of Consumer Affairs 2011).

arket Analysis of House of Fraser

House of Fraser was founded in 1891 by James Arthur in Glasgow. Originally a drapery shop, the store quickly expanded and by the end of 1891, the entire Fraser family was investing in the company. At this point, the store was renamed to Frasers & Sons. Over time, the store expanded from selling draperies to selling clothing, shoes and other department store apparel.

The company has continued to grow through the purchase of smaller companies. In 2005, House of Fraser aquaired Jenner's department store and in 2006 it took over Baugur.

The focus group discussion would be more productive if the female ferret owners will be engaged in a creative activity wherein they will verbally share, envision, and possibly draw ideas on what they may consider as the "ideal" ferret toy. Through this activity, the moderator and company will be able to draw out ideas on the needs, met and unmet, of ferret owners with regard to ferret toys.

Telephone surveys are easier to use and can be accomplished faster; however, this kind of interview could lead to high refusal rate due to technical problems and can yield only shallow data due to the short period of interaction between interviewer and respondent. Personal interviews provide more interaction between interviewer and respondent, and can provide better clarification and probing on responses. However, personal interviewers can take too much time, and can result to interview fatigue, which may affect survey results. Mail surveys are easy to administer and cheaper in cost; however, this kind of survey has the highest refusal rate, and results may no longer be relevant due to this time lag. Electronic mail surveys is easiest and fastest to administer; however, they tend to be ignored and considered as spam mail and responses cannot be clarified further since respondents cannot be tracked easily because surveying is in online mode.

Market Model Changes

The medtech, or medical technology, industry is a large and intensely competitive industry that produces highly innovative medical devices for hospitals and other healthcare facilities in the effort to save lives and improve health for patients (Research, 2012). It is spread across different segments including, cardiology, oncology, neuro, orthopedic, and aesthetic devices. It relies largely on aging baby boomers, high unmet medical needs, and increased incidence of lifestyle diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity.

The industry is being challenged by pricing concerns, hospital admissions and procedural volume, uncertainty concerning healthcare reform, Medicare reimbursement issues as agencies are looking for cost reduction measures, and regulatory overhang. There is a rise in patients deferring treatment in elective procedures. "One factor aligning economic and clinical forces: in the U.S., the number of medical practices owned by hospitals grew from 25% in 2005 to 50% in 2008" (practice, 2011).…… [Read More]

Market Patterns One Industry That Has Shifted

Words: 1231 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 70338621

Market Patterns

One industry that has shifted in the past few years in terms of its structure is the smartphone operating system market. A few years ago, most of the early smartphones were based around proprietary operating systems. Palm and Blackberry dominated the market. Apple joined the industry with the introduction of the iPhone, but more recently other firms have entered the market as well, including Google (Android), indows, Symbian and other systems. The market has moved from a stable oligopoly of four firms basically between two firms into a market that is much closer to monopolistic competition. However, there is the risk that as operating systems shake out, the market could return to an oligopoly of just three operating systems (est & Mace, 2007).

In the short-run, firms in this industry will seek to gain market share through differentiation. The products are slightly differentiated from each other -- they…… [Read More]

The operating system software industry that was dominated by Microsoft was a monopoly till quite some years back when other players came into the market and disrupted the monopoly. These players include Linux with their various operating system software such as edhat and Ubuntu and Apple with their Macintosh operating system.

The general pattern of change in this particular market model was that of monopoly to oligopoly. There are several short-run and long-run behaviors in the monopoly and oligopoly market models. In monopoly, there is only one market player who has full control over the market. However, in oligopoly, there are several market players who hold different market shares depending on their marketing strategies, brand awareness, product specification, product diversification, etc. Soberman & Gatignon, 2005()

Market Potential and Forecast Analysis

Words: 996 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 37804965

The assumptions of industry structure and pricing are based on the market shares of the leading competitors in the motorcycle market including Harley-Davidson with 65% and Honda with 12.9%. There are over 40 different manufacturers of motorcycles globally who comprise the remaining 22% of the worldwide market (Murphy, 2008). Gaining distribution for a new motorcycle model will be challenging given the concentration level of competitors in the market. As motorcycles are considered discretionary purchases, they are influenced by the consumer sentiment index, the level of per capita disposable income, the downstream demand for motorcycle dealership and repair, and the available time consumers have for using them (Diamond, 2008). All of these factors are taken into account in the factoring of both the baseline motorcycle industry forecast and the hybrid motorcycle forecast as well.

Of course, this is a good thing for customers on short-term, but is negatively affects other companies on the market. This is because smaller competitors and especially those that intend to enter the market addressed by IBM find it at least difficult to provide product prices in accordance with those provided by IBM. These smaller companies do not have the ability of reducing their production or operating costs, which does not allow them to introduce competitive prices on the market. This way, they are clearly disfavored by IBM's position and market power.

In addition to this, in a field like it, it is imperative to make continuous investments into the research and development activity. This requires significant capital amounts from these companies.

The first point that has to be looked into is the health of the company, Colorado Australia. The company is passing through a bad phase and this is not the time for a product launch as generally no new introduction can make money for a period of time after launch. When the company launching the product is itself in a relatively poor condition of finances, then it is less likely to take risks that will be required for the successful development of the new product. Here the situation is likely to be of a new brand in a new market, rather than a totally fresh launch. The company is already exporting substantial quantities and it is possible even the same item is being exported for sale by another organization under a different brand name. It may be possible that expansion of sale of quantities under that arrangement may…… [Read More]

Market Behavior One Industry That Has Seen

Words: 1380 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 89428434

Market Behavior

One industry that has seen a shift in the market model is the smartphone industry. During the mid-2000s, this industry was an oligopoly, populated basically by two firms that emerged from the old PDA market. Palm and RIM (Blackberry) operated as a duopoly, catering primarily to business customers with early smartphones. Apple joined the industry with the iPhone, and was quickly followed by a number of other players. The organization of the industry is somewhat unique, as some firms are vertically integrated providers with operating systems and hardware integrated (Blackberry, Apple) and other firms have a number of hardware manufacturers working in conjunction with operating systems makers. Thus in operating systems there remains almost an oligopoly with two or three major firms and a couple of other minor ones, whereas on the hardware side the industry is fully in a state of monopolistic competition.

Market Failure the OECD Defines

Words: 564 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 63880336



Government can have some influence on market failures, but cannot eliminate them. Conditions of perfect competition are usually created outside the influence of government. Often, government policy contributes to market failure rather than prevents it. Government can, however, reduce the impact of market failure. The programs by which government would do this must be well-conceived and well-executed, however, or they can worsen market failure. An example of this would be the bank bailouts. The government averted the direct market failure of the U.S. banking industry in the short-term, but in the long-term the government probably created a perverse incentive in the banking industry to increase risk-taking, knowing that the bank was not going to suffer the downside risk. Bailouts of the savings and loan industry contributed to this attitude among bankers, the concept of "too big to fail" creating a climate of risk-taking in the industry.

Government intervention has worked,…… [Read More]

Market Penetration in Order to Be Able

Words: 325 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 50200831

Market Penetration

In order to be able to calculate the market penetration in our case, we should first give a brief definition and description of the market penetration concept. Identified by some with the company's market share, the market penetration concept allows a company to determine "what percentage of all possible sales was represented by their actual sales"

It is calculated by " measuring all real sales of a given good for a given period and then comparing that total with the total of all sales of that specific good for the same period made by one's own company"

In our particular case, we will be calculating the market penetration as the ratio between the total number of customers on the market and the number of customers that have actually bought our company's products.

As such,

Market Penetration = Number of customers that have bought the product/Total number of customers…… [Read More]

Words: 1386 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 31950110



With regard to the second article, a Magic Potion?; Wellness drinks from the Economist (2007), the lack of secondary research is so glaring as to make the claims of weight reduction from drinking the new beverage unbelievable. The entire article could have been two sentences, with the first announcing the drink and the second, that the research had not been released. Further, the investment and financial analyst quoted says he does not like the taste, yet is that relevant? It seems as if the data included in the article is to pump up the Coca-Cola stock price and little else. Secondary data as to the size of the market, Coke's relative market share and the fact that Coke is having trouble with the Centre for Science in the Public Interest all underscores how a lack of secondary data can seriously undermine the credibility of any message or article. For Coke,…… [Read More]

references and price sensitivities. This information will be invaluable in formulating the right product lines and services, prices and promotions for its anticipated shoppers. Kudler Fine Foods may find that it needs to fine tune its hours of operations, its access to parking or its promotions techniques for the unique community it is trying to serve. For example, a certain community may prefer to sample wine during the evening as opposed to Saturday morning or a community with a large number of working mothers may require later hours of operation than Kudler's current 6:00 closing time.

In summary, every town is a local market that has its own unique demographic characteristics and a different mix of competitors. Likewise, there is no one single voice of the customer. Customer voices are diverse across geographic locations. In consumer markets, there are a variety of different needs. Market research and analysis of demographic, competitive and customer data is necessary to understand all of these differences. While presenting greater upfront investment costs, market research will ultimately lead to greater sales and profits for Kudler Fine Foods.

Discuss: "Market research is probably the greatest single deterrent to excellence in modern business. It's crutch for manager with no vision and no conviction."

One of the most famous corporate success stories of recent memory, the Apple Corporation, did almost no market research. Instead it relied upon the vision of its CEO and founder Steve Jobs. "Apple as a company follows its instincts. They're less interested in giving the market what it wants as they are in giving the market what it doesn't yet know it wants. Apple aims to create innovate products that didn't previously exist (iPad) or take existing products and redefine them in a way that makes them completely new (iPod, iPhone)" (Bradley 2010). Apple customers are loyal, yet it does not use focus groups, surveys, questionnaires, or other conventional methods of assessing what consumers want. Consumers do not know what they want, Jobs believed.…… [Read More]

Rational firms will choose the lowest-cost option between the two. The market is expected to be efficient, so that while some firms will find it cheaper to pollute, other firms will find it cheaper to install pollution abatement mechanisms.

Ultimately, the system will seek to deliver the lowest per-unit cost of abatement. This will be achieved because the firms that are going to abate their pollution are the ones for whom the cost of abatement is lower than the cost of polluting. With these firms focused on their abatement efforts, they will deliver a greater degree of pollution abatement at a lower per-unit cost with the marketable permits than any other system.

To see the value in this system, the alternative must be considered. If firms are mandated to reduce pollution, they will do so to bring themselves under the maximum allowable pollution levels. However, firms will have no economic…… [Read More]

Market Dominance When a Company

Words: 466 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 88648209

A challenger thus goes for an all out attack against the leader in order to gain market share. In the field of pharmaceuticals, for example, Merck would be seriously challenged by Pfizer because both companies are massive in size and are targeting almost the same areas. Some of the strategies attained by a challenger would include Frontal attack (offering new and better products at lower price) Leapfrog (offering treatment in previously untouched areas), Flank (reach a new segment of market) and encircle (develop a niche).

Market Nicher:

A company may choose to focus on one single segment and hence achieve the title of a specialist. The company is still trying for domination but only in its selected areas. It doesn't want to compete in every single field like the leader or the challenger. For example a firm may try to become a dominant player in discovering treatments for neurological disorders.…… [Read More]

Market Analysis and Product Innovation: Facebook Inc.

In an increasingly competitive environment, business organizations must remain innovative. They must deliver offerings that resonate with the ever changing needs of the consumer and the operating environment (Akbar & Tzokas, 2013). This often calls for product innovation, which has been marked as a crucial driver of competitive advantage in the contemporary marketplace (Song & Chen, 2014). Nonetheless, product innovation is often not a straightforward undertaking. An organization must have comprehensive understanding of the environment in which it operates, especially in terms of the threats and opportunities it presents, for its products to succeed in the marketplace (Bart, 2002). The organization must also effectively utilize its resources and capabilities to overcome those threats and take advantage of the opportunities (Holahan, Sullivan & Markham, 2014).

Market value and balance sheet value

A British firm listed on the market is generally traded at its market value, regardless of its balance sheet value. At a simplistic level, the balance sheet value represents the value of the firm as it is computed within the organization and in terms of the company's resources, revenues and other internal values.

4. It is important to build a strong brand because the brand is the one source of sustainable competitive advantage that can be derived from marketing (Yap, 2006). The brand contains within it all of the past marketing that the company has done. The brand alone can sell the product, more than a sales pitch. As a result, the brand is the most important component of the marketing campaign.

Pharmaceutical industries have to operate in an environment that is highly competitive and subject to a wide variety of internal and external constraints. In recent times, there has been an increasing trend to reduce the cost of operation while competing with other companies that manufacture products that treat similar afflictions and ailments. The complexities in drug research and development and regulations have created an industry that is subject to intense pressure to perform. The amount of capital investment investments required to get a drug from conception, through clinical trials and into the market is enormous. The already high-strung pharmaceutical industry is increasingly investing greater amounts of resources in search of the next "blockbuster" drug that can help them gain market position and profits.

Antitrust Practices and Market Power

The modern business environment is increasingly characterized by the proliferation of emerging monopolies in various industries. One of the industries that have experienced an increase in budding monopolies is Information Technology, particularly with the growth and development of social media and networks. Technology companies have rapidly developed into monopolies because of the connection between attractive business opportunities. The growth of leading technology companies into monopolies has also been fueled by their efforts to gain and maintain market power. However, some of these companies such as Google, AT&T, Standard Oil, Microsoft, and Facebook have been investigated for antitrust behavior.

A third strategic effort made by eBay in conquering the Asian market is represented by diversification -- not the diversification of its operations or provision of services, but the diversification of the markets served. Traditionally focused on China as a source of increased gains, eBay has come to redirect its attention to other countries as well. The online auction company is as such focusing on launching and expanding operations in Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand or even the Philippines (Chan). Through this strategic expansion to more Asian countries, eBay is decreasing its dependency on the revenues generated in China and is striving to create a stable expansion on the Asian continent.

all Street Journal Online was selected due to its discussion of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) regarding the United States and globally. Facebook, Inc. and Alphabet, Inc., the parent company of Google, have very high market valuation, in large part due to their dominance of the mobile advertising market. However, the author believes their very high combined valuation may be unduly optimistic, based on the current percentages of U.S. GDP and global GDP spent on mobile advertising and projected percentages of GDP spent on mobile advertising by 2025. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is an important facet of Macroeconomics because it is a basic tool for determining a nation's and the world's productivity, income and expenditure. In this article, GDP is discussed, expenditures in particular are discussed and the dramatic effect of adjusting expenditures is shown when examining Facebook's and Alphabet's glowing combined market valuation.

China represents one of the fastest growing economies in the world that has an enormous population. Although the total number of internet users per capita is far less than can be found in the advanced nations, a smaller percentage of internet penetration coupled with the gigantic population represents an enormous market for online service provider. Unfortunately, China's online world does not operate as it does in most nations. In fact, China keeps many websites permanently blocked and has different methods of maintaining a firewall that only allows Chinese internet viewers to navigate to a collection of pre-approved sites (the firewall is sometimes referred to as the "Great Firewall of China").

Market Analysis of Tiny Houses

Words: 710 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 39679528

Tiny House: Target Market Analysis

The tiny house market for homes "typically between 100 and 500 square" has a wide demographic outreach in terms of its age range: "Millennials, who have limited funds and might not be able to afford a traditional mortgage because they have to pay off college loans; and Baby Boomers, who are retiring and seeking ways to stretch their pension by finding affordable homes" (Hyde n.d.). The concerns of both groups are strikingly similar. Idealistic Millennials embrace the environmental benefits provided by such homes and Baby Boomers are seeking to save money on utilities. However, demographically, the impressive size of the Millennial generation makes this an even more attractive potential target market: "By sheer numbers, the 75 million members of the millennial generation overtook baby boomers last year" (Lee 2016). Slice of Heaven's emphasis on the luxury market of tiny homes would allow both demographics to…… [Read More]

For the secondary target customers Diesel designers should combine jeans with other clothing items that are best suitable for 25-35 aged customers, that have good jobs and that are present in high social circles. For the secondary target customers the price should be significantly higher than the price for the primary target customers.

3. How the quality of service changed and why?

The quality of service increased significantly as all practices areas of the hospital better aligned to the cultural norms, values and needs of each ethnic population represented by the segments served. The quality also increased because the staff also began to better understand the unique needs of the patients being served, with more emphasis on interpersonal communication than had been the case in the past. This personalization aspect of leadership works both ways; the hospital staff had a much better appreciation and understanding of the unique needs of the population they were serving, and the potential patients and customers developed familiarity and trust with the providers. The next step for the hospital is to create a means to continually evaluate the level of satisfaction they are delivering to patients. The hospital could use the SEVQUAL metrics to evaluate the level of…… [Read More]

Shared value as a business approach is integral in conducting business because it both creates economic value and societal benefit. Businesses create shared value when they can make profit while also meeting important social needs like improving environmental performance, reducing health related problems, improving nutrition, reducing disability among other factors. When businesses create shared value to make profit and meet societal needs. Shared value should not only be thought of in the context of doing more good. It also encompasses aspects of capitalism (Driver, 2011). Capitalism has relegated many important aspects of society like improvement of environmental performance, safety, and focus on the local community to the periphery of the business operations because of a notion that these are social and not business related activities. The shared value concept includes all these social items into capitalism. For profit firms that engage in these social activities stand to gain a lot…… [Read More]

Market Equilibrium War Outbreak

What are the effects of Market Equilibrium at the outbreak of War on the Economy?

Over the decades, there has been the continuing debate about the underlying effects that war is having on the economy. At the heart of this argument, is the belief that once a war begins it will have a positive impact. This is because it effectively, controls the forces of market equilibrium. Simply put, this is when there is a perfect balance between: supply and demand. As this helping to: ensure price stability. The reason why, is because of: the massive amounts of spending and the allocation of various resources in supporting these efforts. ("Market Equilibrium") Once this takes place, it means that there will be the ideal conditions for the economy to begin to experience above average growth. As there are no economic forces, that can create the kinds of situations…… [Read More]

In his work, Fama argued that given the massive use of resources by the brokerage firm to conduct studies on trends in the industry, the effects of changes in interest rates on corporate balance sheets and expectations of managers and/or political analysts of the companies should be able to systematically beat a generic portfolio with the same risk characteristics.

Since, according to Fama, professional in every situation, the analyst has a fifty percent chance of beating the market; although its specific capabilities did not exist he would beat a lot of the market. The analyst did "help" the market to be efficient if all the investors, in fact, would hold portfolios composed of stock indices, would open up significant opportunities for professional traders to take advantage of the situation. But the movement of traders to that "new market" would…… [Read More]

They see alternatives and their consequences as costlier and pay very little attention to them. Rationality exists less in public than in private organizations. A public agency's ends often compromise incompatible interests and neither occasionally nor accidentally. Conflict becomes inevitable and the end-system goes haywire. And the end-systems of public organizations are much more complex than those of private ones. The more complex, the harder to institute courses of action, the more results to evaluate, and the greater the chance to sacrifice some ends for other ends. It would be most helpful to find detailed case studies of organizations sharing a common concept so that they can be compared. From the comparison may develop a plan and rational choice (ranfield).

Market Potential Index

There are eight indicators on the market potential index: market size, market intensity, growth rate, consumption capacity, commercial infrastructure, receptivity, economic freedom and country risk.

The market size is the largest weight. The measures used are urban population and electricity consumption, I guess as proxies for the number of people who have at least the possibility of having money.

Market intensity is based on the gross national income per capita and private consumption as % of GDP, measures that reflect the wealth of the country and presumably telling something about purchasing power.

Growth rate is based on the growth rate in energy use and the real GDP growth rate, looking at how fast the market is growing.

The consumption capacity is measured with consumer expenditure and income share of middle class. This is similar to market intensity, but with a focus on consumers and the middle class,…… [Read More]

Market Structure of Subway Sandwiches

At the national level, Subway operates in a nearly perfectly competitive market: there are a number of franchise competitors (Blimpee, Quiznos), regional chains, and independent establishments, and supermarkets Market barriers are reasonably low (a food truck can offer sandwiches and compete with a local Subway), consumers have a high degree of buying power (there is a low commitment level when buying a sandwich) and there are many available substitute goods. However, in some areas, competition may be less 'perfect' depending on the availability of other establishments where people on a quick lunch break can eat. Although there still may be many possible options, such as bringing lunch, the location and lack of competitors can make it easier for a Subway to thrive within a certain area.

d.). Billboards and other public advertising such as on buses and subways are also a viable option. Japanese are wired, so advertising through popular Internet portals is a possibility. Also, mobile phone advertising is a possibility. However, it is worth noting that the preferred medium for advertising is highly dependent on the type of product or service offered. Therefore to some extent the ideal channel will be dictated by industry norms (Ibid), unless we choose to buck the trend.

Promotion of Product

The Japanese market is intensely competitive for most products, since it is a mature market with only limited growth prospects. Promotion can be very aggressive as a result. Japanese consumers are price sensitive, but they are equally sensitive to quality. Thus, it is best to enter the market with either a cost leadership strategy or a differentiated strategy.
