Swot AnalysisStrengths of Ferrari:• Extremely strong brand image.• Products that are a fine combination of beauty & aestheticscombined with unforgettable performance.• The brand has connected to itself an aura of mystique• Is looked upon as a status symbol• Takes on new challenges on a constant basis with a head onattitude.• Innovation & technology are key drivers behind every product.• A very inspired, well taken care of & satisfied work-force who areproud to be attached with the brand. This was further expressedpublicly when Ferrari was voted the “Best Place to Work inEurope 2007″.
Swot AnalysisWeaknesses of Ferrari:• Ferrari’s business model, based around low volumes, removes thepossibility of employing certain technological solutions.• That same business model also limits their sales volumes even though alot more demand is present in the market.• Due to their “waiting list” model, they lose out on customers to thecompetition.• A big challenge lying in wait is fuel efficiency & emissions which aregrowing in importance every day, thanks to spreading concerns overthe environment.
Swot AnalysisOpportunities Ferrari:• Growth in the global market for high-performance super-cars due to growingeconomies & developing nations.• Expansion of the brand through entering into new & important automotivemarkets like India wherein competitors like Porsche have already set up base.• Enlargement of customer base (increase appeal of their products to a morevariety of buyers) through adding comfort, roominess, luggage space,engines that are more user friendly, and so on, while at the same timemaintaining traditional Ferrari characteristics–performance, style, exclusivity.Ferrari has been exploiting this aspect for a while & it has been a keycontributor to their success in the past 15 years.• Development of technology (for example interfacing electronics withmechanical systems) has opened up new avenues to explore for theirproducts.• Packaging i.e. the concept of the car, is another area which still has years toexplore.
Swot AnalysisThreats of Ferrari:• Automotive policies being pushed by countries & continents all over theworld which are being strictly enforced like the emission norms of 130g/kmof CO2 are very difficult to keep up with due to the performance orientednature of the engines built by Ferrari.• Tough competition from other iconic super car brands like Lamborghini &Porsche• A competing brand like Porsche does not follow the same low volumes, highon exclusivity model which is followed by Ferrari & hence sells a lot more ofits products & captures a large chunk of the market share.• Once again, competitors like Lamborghini & Porsche are expanding theirproduct range to high performance SUV’s wherein Porsche has already beenvery successful with its “Cayenne” model, all over the world & in particular,in India, which has led to its success in the Indian market. Ferrari has notannounced any plans for such a product (high-performance SUV) as of yet.
