  14. 14. Threat of New Entrants•There are huge complexities and high regulations to get entry in thisindustry.•The new players need to satisfy the licensing and need to get approvalsby the states and central government.•For international players, the key is find the right partners and links whounderstand the Indian market and legislations.
  15. 15. Contd.. • With liquor makers, both local and foreign, becoming active, competition is intense. • UB-Carlsberg, South African Breweries and some others are awaiting clearance following government stalemate on account of the Supreme Court judgment, the judgment has created a confusion whether the proposals related to FDIs and the issuing of licenses for the liquor industry will be addressed by the Central or the State governments. • A lot of mergers and acquisitions in the international arena have begun to impact the joint ventures.
  16. 16. Threat of Substitutes •Today with the advancements and up gradation in the standard of living, people are becoming more health conscious and a large chunk of the population has become aware of the fact that Liquor is harmful for health. •For this a lot of people have shifted their demand from Liquor to juices & other health drinks.

  17. 17. • There has been a decline in the sale of liquor in India by 2.5% in the year 2010 which clearly indicates the impact of substitutes and awareness amongst the consumers.
  18. 18. Bargaining Power of Customers • The Liquor industry has witnessed the consumers always at a weaker end. • There is not much bargaining power in the hands of the consumers in Indian liquor industry as the prices are set by the forces of demand & supply and the demand for liquor here is high as compared to the supply. • Hence, the producers are at a beneficiary end and charge higher prices. • In India, a liquor brand is identified and is appreciated only on the basis of it‟s higher price. • It is an interesting fact that Companies use “High Price” as one of it‟s promotional strategy to attract the consumers.
  19. 19. Bargaining Power of suppliers •The key raw material for IMFL players is Molasses which is a by product of sugar. Molasses is distilled & processed to form rectified spirit called Ethanol. •The players which have primary distillation facilities in their Plants directly consume molasses, rest all have to purchase Ethanol. •As molasses demand arises only from ethanol demand, the demand supply scenario for ethanol determines the raw material prices for the IMFL Players.
  20. 20. Continued.. • Ethanol demand is expected to rise in future, when the commercial blending of ethanol with petrol (for producing Gasohol) will take off. • In Long term -Molasses supply is going to increase as more sugar manufacturers are expected to set up primary distilling facilities and as new sugar factories are expected to come up in the form of integrated plants with cogeneration & distilling facilities • The suppliers are able to play easily with the prices of these raw materials hence charging higher prices from the Liquor producers.
  21. 21. Predictions regarding Raw Materials • It is predicted by the analysts that after the commercial production of “Gasohol” the prices of Molasses is likely to increase.
