Market Structure adidas belongs to monopolistic competition Reason : 1~ A large number of sellers and buyers 2~ The goods sold are heterogeneous 3~ Imperfect information of the market 4~ The sellers are price-searchers 5~ Non-price competition is involved

Weakness : 1 Lots of substitutes ( e.g. Puma, Nike ) 2 Reduce efficiency Due to the problems of communication and co-ordination Opportunity : 1 Open more lines such as elderly 2 Expand the market of women and children 3 Explore more market in developing countries Threat : 1. Many Competitors
Conclusion As Hong Kong is now facing the problem of ageing, the market of the elderly will become larger. Therefore, we suggest adidas to open more production lines for the elderly in order to increase its market size and profit. Moreover, women are fashion-conscious, so their demand for this fashion label will increase. Therefore, adidas should increase its market share in womens market. Nowadays, sports become more important for children. The parents will buy more sports hardware for their physical development, adidas should focus on children market also. As a result, the profit of adidas will increase!!!!
