  5. 5.  Myntra undoubtedly enjoyed the first mover advantage in the online retailing business. But Myntra’s success has been replicated by other companies that have now become competitors for Myntra. Some of them are Jabong HomeShop 18 Snapdeal Amazon COPMPETITORS
  6. 6. Threat of New Competition: In the Online Retailing industry Myntra has already established thelargest market share. But since the barriers to entry/exit and setup capital and working capital arelow in this industry, threat of a new entrant becomes high. Threat of substitute services: Online retailing can be considered to be a substitute to the usual shop retailing. Myntra cannot provide the customer with a real retailing experience but at the same time gives the convenience of shopping from home/office. Currently there does not appear any other substitute service. Thus this threat is low. Porter’s Five Forces Model
  7. 7. Bargaining Power of Customers: The bargaining power of customers is also described as the market of outputs: the ability of customers to put the firm under pressure, which also affects the customer's sensitivity to price changes. Customers can very easily switch to some other online retailer; this puts pressure on the company to continuously improvise on their service so as to keep their users satisfied. Therefore bargaining power of customers is high. Bargaining Power of Suppliers: The suppliers in this case are the various brands whose products are being sold by the company. They can demand an increase in their profit margin and put pressure on the company. The supplier may choose a competitor of the firm to do business since the supplier switching costs are low. Therefore the bargaining power of suppliers is high and Myntra needs to have good supplier relations. Intensity of competitive rivalry: For most industries, the intensity of competitive rivalry is the major determinant of the competitiveness of the industry. In this particular case the current rivalry, rather competition is not very high, but in future it will be
