  • 11. A better everyday life
    Taken the straightforward approach to the furniture business, by starting with developing furniture with the price tag in mind. This is the IKEA way, to maximize the use of raw materials in order to fulfill people's needs and preferences by offering quality products at an affordable price

  • 14. Threat of Suppliers growing bargaining power
    IKEA has its thousands of suppliers that set standards in delivering the materials
    Because of the low-pricing, IKEA’s profit margin also affects the prices in raw materials than by prices in labour
    IKEA has a wide network of 1300 suppliers. They carefully select the manufacturer of its products. The company has own production factories and designers which makes it less dependent on others
    Bargaining power of supplier could be threat for the profit of the company
  • 15. Threat of Substitute Products
    There is no specific product that can be a substitute for the furniture but IKEA at least, have to keep up with the latest trends, to avoid becoming out of style
    Problems faced due to distribution channels
  • 16. Threat of Intense Segment Rivalry
    The IKEA’s furniture competitors’ offers different styles and functionality
    Conrin targets a new low cost in terms of furniture line; Crate & Barrel offers a furniture in a box which is subject in higher prices
    Ethan Allen aimed at a more upscale market
    Wal-Mart is equipped in a big box furniture that is categorized under the general store must-have-items, but don’t have much of a style
    IKEA is the most successful in delivering the complete package for the customers that reflects on weak rivalries
    There will always be substitutes for furniture’s but IKEA competes with price and there isn't competitors in same price range
  • 17. Threat of New Entrants
    IKEA stores do not reach many small towns and this is an opportunity for the new competitors to move into small and midsize cities with smaller stores and less selection. But not easier in city because new entrants have to establish a vast supply chain and create a unique brand name
    The furniture market is already highly competitive - the risk of new entrants is not extremely high - huge capital needed to start the business
