2 Industry & Competitive Analysis
Dominant economic features of industry Competitive forces in industry - strength of Industry drivers - impact of Which companies in strong/weakest position Key Success Factors of industry Industry attractiveness

3 Dominant Economic Features of Industry
Mkt size Geographic scope Mkt growth rate - stage of growth cycle No. & relative size of rivals No. & relative size of buyers Prevalence of forward/backward integration Distribution channels used Pace of technological change - process & product

4 Dominant Economic Features of Industry
Pdt/service differentiation Scope for economies of scale Learning / experience curve effects Importance of capacity utilisation Resource requirements - ease of entry/exit Industry profit potential/attractiveness

5 Porter’s 5 Force Model of Competition
Rivalry among competitors / sellers Threat of substitution Threat of new entrants Bargaining power of suppliers Bargaining power of buyers

6 Rivalry among Competitors
increases when.... no. and size of competitors increase product demand growing slower tactics used to increase unit volume eg. price cuts low switching costs one or more competitor dissatisfied with position exit costs are high strong co.s outside industry acquire weak firms in ind.

7 Threat of New Entrants Barriers to entry: Economies of scale
Access to technology/expertise Learning curve effects Brand preference/customer loyalty Resource requirements Access to distribution channels Regulatory policies

8 Threat of Substitution
Eg. eyeglasses and contact lenses sugar and artificial sweeteners Depends on: attractively priced substitutes being available quality and performance of substitutes ease of switching The lower the price of subs., the higher their quality and the lower the user’s switching costs the more intense the threat of substitution.

9 Power of Suppliers Threat depends on: significance of item they supply
size of the customer no. of suppliers whether switching costs high potential for backward integration

10 Power of Buyers High if... switching costs are low small no. of buyers
if threat of backward integration - eg own label if buyers are large eg. tesco - shelf space if prestige buyer

11 Implications of 5 Forces...
The stronger the collective impact of the competitive forces, the lower the combined profit of participant firms. However, even when industry is highly competitive (forces are strong) it can be profitable to those who are well positioned. Successful strategists know what forces exist, the relative strength of each and understand the industry’s competitive structure as a whole.

12 Driving Forces The major underlying causes of change in industry and competitive conditions. Driving Forces Analysis - identify the driving forces assess the impact they will have on the industry Important to ensure strategies are as tightly matched to emerging conditions as possible.

13 Examples of Driving Forces
Technological change Product innovation Change in buyer demographics Increasing globalisation Changing societal concerns

14 Key Success Factors - of the Industry
The things that most affect the ability of industry members to prosper in the marketplace. eg. technology related KSFs; manufacturing related KSFs; distribution related KSFs; skills related KSFs. Important to understand the industry well enough to know what is more important to competitive success and what is less important.
