  12. 12. Industry Analysis of REEBOK PORTER’S FIVE FORCE MODEL PORTER’S FIVE FORCE MODEL SNO. PARTICULAR DEGREE 1) THREAT OF NEW ENTRANTS LOW 2) RIVALRY AMONGST EXISTING FIRMS HIGH 3) BARGAINING POWER OF BUYERS - MODERATE 4) BARGAINING POWER OF SUPPLIERS MODERATE 5) THREAT OF SUBSTITUTES HIGHIn detail given below:-NEW ENTRANTSThere are many barriers to entry preventing new entrants from capturing significant marketshare. Today‟s athletic shoes are highly technical. An extremely large capital investment isrequired for new firms to open athletic shoe factories and conduct research and design tocreate a popular athletic shoe. The aggressive marketing campaigns turn their products intohousehold names making it arduous for new firms to compete. Athletic shoe manufacturersgreatly attempt to differentiate their products from all shoe manufacturers.If they are a startup firm, it is extremely difficult to get shelf space at major shoe retailers.If the firm is currently in the dress shoe industry, and is entering the athletic shoe industry,they may use their existing connections to easily access athletic shoe distribution channels.Switching costs are very low for the athletic shoe industry. 12
  13. 13. RIVALRY AMONGST EXISTING FIRMSIn the athletic shoe industry, corporations are mutually dependent. A competitive move byone firm directly effects competitors, forcing retaliation or counter efforts. For example,Reebok‟s expansion of the women‟s walking shoe, inspired other firms to follow.The number of competitors is stable, partially due to high entry barriers. This adds to therivalry among existing firms. Manufacturers watch each other carefully and makeappropriate countermoves to match a competitor‟s move.The rate of industry growth is stable, but the quest for global market share is eminent. Thisincreases global rivalry. Product characteristics are related to market share. Namerecognition alone sells athletic shoes. The larger the market share, the greater advertisingcapabilities and hence increased name recognition.Capacity has minimal impact on rivalry, because most firms have means to manufacture thedemanded amount of athletic shoes. This ability to meet demand reduces market becausemost firms overproduce and drive down the selling price.Low exit barriers and diversity among competitors has minimal impact on profit potential. Ifthe athletic shoe industry becomes too unprofitable, firms could switch to other shoemarkets. Additionally, diversity among firms is small because every firm follows oneanother. The rivalry among existing firms is high where weak firms are easily acquired byfierce competitors. This may have a high impact on profit potential.BARGAINING POWER OF BUYERSBuyers have high switching costs in regards to opportunity cost. If an athletic shoe retailerdecided to drop one of the popular athletic shoe brands, their sales would fall due to highconsumer brand loyalty. Most buyers have a medium profit margin so price sensitivity ofbuyers is moderate. In the athletic shoe industry, price increases pass to the consumers.Theoverall impact from buyer‟s bargaining power to profit potential is moderate.BARGAINING POWER OF SUPPLIERSAthletic shoes are manufactured primarily from raw materials including rubber, leather andnylon. These materials could be classified as commodities, where the manufacturing processadds to their value. For this reason, the suppliers have limited bargaining power, and littleimpact on profit potential. 13
  14. 14. THREAT OF SUBSTITUTESAthletic shoes are designed to improve comfort and personal safety during periods ofincreased movement. Substitutes for athletic shoes are using other forms of shoes, or goingbarefoot(rural areas). A large population of athletic shoe consumers wear athletic shoesstrictly because they are comfortable. Comfortable dress shoes or sandals are equallyinterchangeable with minimal switching costs. If the athletic shoe is used for sports, thenthere are relatively few substitutes. Given these reasons, the threat of substitute products ismoderate and the impact to profit potential is moderate to high. 14

  16. 16. CONDITION(RATING SCALE) 1 LESS THAN AVERAGE 2 AVERAGE 3 MORE THAN AVERAGE 4 STRONGLYINTERPRETATIONAfter competitive analysis of Reebok & nike, we conclude that the reebok faces fiercecompetition from all sides.

  17. 17. CONCLUSIONFrom the above-study, we were able to conclude that people buy Reebok products mostlybecause of comfort and they mostly go for the quality & brand value of the product. And theReebok is positioning to be a high-endathletic footwear brand and a leader in its industry.The „after-sales‟ service provided also acts as a factor for the purchase decision.
