    • Enumerate and classify the different dimensions of market analysis.
    • Discuss the dimensions of market analysis and relate them to personal experiences and/or observations.
    • Illustrate the value chain and experience curve.
  • 3. Goal of Market Analysis
    • To determine the attractiveness of a market and to understand its evolving opportunities and threats as they relate to the strengths and weaknesses of the firm.
  • 4. Dimensions of Market Analysis (David A. Aaker)
    • Market size (current and future)
    • Market growth rate
    • Market profitability
    • Industry cost structure
    • Distribution channel
    • Market trends
    • Key success factors
  • 5. Market Size
    • The size of the market can be evaluated based on:
        • Present sales
        • Potential sales (if expanded)
    • Some information sources for determining market size:
        • Government data
        • Trade associations
        • Financial data from major players
        • Customer survey
  • 6. Market Growth Rate
    • A simple means of forecasting the market growth rate is to extrapolate ( infer or estimate ) historical data into the future. While this method may provide a first-order estimate, it does not predict important turning points. A better method is to study growth drivers such as demographic information and sales growth in complementary products .
  • 7.
    • Ultimately, the maturity and decline stages of the product life cycle will be reached. Some leading indicators of the decline phase include:
        • Price pressure caused by competition
        • Decrease in brand loyalty
        • Emergence of substitute products
        • Market saturation
        • Lack of growth drivers
  • 8. Market Profitability
    • While different firms in the market will have different levels of profitability, the average profit potential for a market can be used as a guideline for knowing how difficult it is to make money in the market.
  • 9. Porter’s Five Competitive Forces Rivalry among Competitors Threat of Substitute Products Potential New Entrants Bargaining Power of Buyers Bargaining Power of Suppliers Internet tends to increase bargaining power of suppliers Internet reduces barriers to entry Internet blurs differences among competitors Internet creates new substitution threats Internet shifts greater power to end consumers
  • 10. Industry Cost Structure
    • The cost structure is important for identifying key factors for success. To this end, Porter’s value chain model is useful for determining where value is added and for isolating the costs.
    • The cost structure also is helpful for formulating strategies to develop a competitive advantage. For example, in some environments the experience curve effect can be used to develop a cost advantage over competitors.
  • 11. Porter’s Generic Value Chain Support Activities Primary Activities Profit Margin Profit Margin Infrastructure Human Resource Management Technology Development Procurement Elapsed Time - Value added time cost Inbound Logistics Operations Outbound Logistics Marketing & Sales Service
  • 12. Primary Value Chain Activities:
    • Inbound Logistics: the receiving and warehousing of raw materials, and their distribution to manufacturing as they are required.
    • Operations: the processes of transforming inputs into finished products and services.

    • Marketing and Sales: the identification of customer needs and the generation of sales.

  • 14. Experience Curve Diagram
  • 15. Distribution Channel
    • The following aspects of the distribution system are useful in a market analysis:
        • Existing distribution channel
