5 Political Factors Threat of conflict diamonds from diamond- producing countries in political unrest Availability and price of these diamonds depends on political stability of country

6 Economic Factors International sales of luxury goods is on the rise – Emerging markets included, where Tiffany is already established International economic recession 2011 earthquake in Japan, reducing purchases of luxury goods in region

7 Social Factors There is a trend of rising female employment, allowing women their own income to purchase Tiffany products Changing roles of women means changes in mindsets of working women Because of the recession, consumers want to spend their money on products that will last, which includes Tiffany products

8 Technological Factors E-commerce makes purchasing of products easier for customers E-commerce makes it easier for Tiffany to reach international customers

9 Industry Analysis FactorEvaluation Intensity of RivalryStrong Force Buyer PowerStrong Force Supplier PowerBenign Force Threat of Substitute ProductsStrong Force Threat of New EntrantsBenign Force

10 Intensity of Rivalry Strong force Louis Vuitton Moet Hennesy owns over 60 luxury brands They compete directly with Tiffany & Co LVMH has a good deal of power in the industry

11 Buyer Power Strong force Market demand determines supply Customers demand high quality from Tiffany, therefore they must produce it Tiffany must find a way to keep buyers purchasing their products even during times of recession

12 Supplier Power Benign force – not a threat to Tiffany Possibility of depletion of nonrenewable resources, such as diamonds, but not an immediate threat

13 Threat of Substitute Products Strong Force Many possibilities for substitutes Examples: Vacations, home renovations, car purchase, etc.

14 Threat of New Entrants Benign force Not difficult to establish a jewelry store, but more difficult to establish a luxury goods store Very difficult to establish a high quality luxury goods store on the level of Tiffany & Co Takes years of recognition to be considered high quality

15 Blue Ocean Strategy Tiffany & Co Create uncontested market spaceSuccessful Make the competition irrelevantWhile Tiffany has a secure place in the market, they haven not made competition completely irrelevant. Create and capture new demandDemand for jewelry and luxury goods is not a new demand Break the value-cost trade-offTiffany products have very high value at reasonable cost to the company – sold at a high price to customers Align the whole system of a firm’s activities in pursuit of differentiation and low cost The Tiffany brand strives on differentiation, but not low cost

16 Blue Ocean Strategy Tiffany does not need to offer discounts to keep making sales or fight to be noticed in the marketplace Tiffany focuses on differentiation rather than cost cutting Tiffany experiences high growth in a high growth market and does not rely on mergers or acquisitions These shows Tiffany has a high possibility of a BOS

17 Conclusions Economic factors have the largest impact on Tiffany & Co The growing markets offer a large opportunity for the company with possible further expansion into international markets A blue ocean strategy could help Tiffany, but they already have an established place in the market with little threat of new entrants Tiffany is a consistently growing company established worldwide in stable countries with growth potential

28 How Companies Compete CompanyCompetitive Position Tiffany & CoHigh-low products: high-priced products next to low-priced products LVMHHigh quality, high-priced products: luxury Signet GroupAffordable luxury ZaleLow-priced products Blue NileOnline retailer: convenience

29 Jewelry Market $58.8 billion market Customers less price sensitive – looking for quality rather than focused on price – Lower-end retailers more sensitive to economic downturns than the high-end jewelers Experienced decline during 2008 recession, but has risen since then

30 Target Market Women & Men who buy jewelry for women For the high-priced jewelry, target market is individuals with household incomes of $100,00+ Wealthy customers lead to consistent sales even in tough economic times

31 Social Media Social Media Site?Useful? Tiffany & CoFacebook, TwitterYes LVMHFacebookNo Signet GroupFacebookNo ZaleFacebookYes Blue NileFacebook, TwitterYes The social networking sites of these brands show pictures of new products, which can help customers to choose the products they wish to purchase. Social Networks are a good way to build brand awareness, but for higher quality luxury brands, they are not necessary.

32 Conclusions The jewelry market is very large, and not ruled by Tiffany or any of its competitors. While these companies compete on different stances, they try to capture the same market With continuing international growth, expanding further into international markets would be beneficial to each company

33 Conclusions Awareness of companies such as Tiffany and LVMH brands is not an issue, but for smaller companies such as Gordon’s Jewelers (Zale), social networking sites are helpful Each company is successful, residing in the ‘star’ category of the BCG matrix, but the percentage of the total market each company holds could increase by a large amount
