15 Comparative Advantage

16 ● Almost 40% of the workforce holding a tertiary qualification or advanced diploma ● The first choice education destination within the Asian region ● Rich in natural resources ● Female population is increasing to 50.2% of the total ● High level of disposal income ● An opening trade market ●10th in the country of ease of doing business

17 Market Structure ●Monopolistic Competition ●Limited barriers to entry ●Large competition from Australian drug store’s

18 Social Trends ●We increasingly rely on use of skin product ●Awareness of healthy skin and body care ●Women’s inherent love for beauty ●Environment: air pollution, low water quality ●Daily life: bad habits, fast pace of life, stressful

19 Corporate Social Responsibility Workplace: safe, healthy,supportive, discrimination-free environment 4 pillars Marketplace: setting out the same ethical expectation with business partners, offering the products of best quality

20 Corporate Social Responsibility Environment: energy-efficiency, reduce waste and greenhouse gas emission Community: develop programs with organization’s that are relevant to local community needs ( beach cleanup, gardening for the community )

21 Porter’s 5 Forces

22 Australian Beauty & Health Industry ➢ Modest growth of 2% in 2013 ➢ Consumers seek products with multiple benefits ➢ Mass resurgence in drugstores ➢ Price promotions and discounting ➢ Australian households spent 8 billion on beauty and 10.5 billion on personal health care in 2012

23 Competitor Priceline pharmacy -A health and beauty retailer of cosmetics, skincare, haircare and healthcare products - Over 330 Priceline brand stores throughout Australia. - Has over 4 million memberships, making it one of the largest health and beauty retail loyalty programs in Australia.

24 Opportunities & Threats -Potential customer base among Asian females (own their brand loyalty) -Professional sellers speaking different languages -Unique products -Lower prices -Lack of popularity among locals

25 Bargaining power - Suppliers have little bargaining power : a large batch of demand for stores all over the world (economies of scale) - Customers have high bargaining power: large competition in Australian industry

26 Self-developed Products ◈ Products owned by Watsons and manufactured in Mainland China (low cost) ◈ Issue: transportation cost ◈ Solution: already have warehouses in Southern Asia: Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, much closer and cost much cheaper transportation fee

27 Strategy Transnational Strategy

28 Entry Method Greenfield ●Late mover in Australia health and beauty industry Scale of entry ●Strategic commitment

29 Action Plan -One store in each city -Find out customer preference -Build warehouses -Adding more stores over time -Using similar marketing strategy we did in other countries -Market position: localization

30 Risks Involved -Variability of Australian currency -Competition from large multinationals in industry -Low brand awareness from residents not of Asian heritage -Do not yet know consumer preferences
