  13. 13. Threat Of New Entrants –Low •  Bottling  Network -­‐  Have  franchisee  agreements  with  their  existing  bottlers   who  have  rights  in  a  certain  geographic  area  in  perpetuity •  Access  to  distribution  is  limited •  High  brand  loyalty •  Advertising  Spend -­‐huge  advertising  and  marketing  spend  required
  14. 14. •  Commodity Ingredients •  Majority of the U.S. CSDs were packed in metal cans - Coke and Pepsi were among the largest customers for metal can industry -  Cans are commodity, 2-3 manufacturers competed for single contract •  Plastic Bottles - 42% of CSD packaging - Bargaining power of them was low

  19. 19. 2.  Compare  the  economics  of  the  concentrate   business  to  the  bo.ling  business:  why     is  the  profitability  so  different?     Concentrate Producers •  Blend raw material ingredients, packaged the mixture and shipped those to the container bottler. •  A typical manufacturing plan costs $25 million to $ 50million. •  Significant costs were for advertising, promotion, market research and bottler relations •  Invest heavily in their trademarks and innovative marketing campaign
  20. 20. Bottler • Cost of sale is more in bottlers than concentrate producers • Bottled or canned is the resulting CSD product • Bottling process is capital - intensive plant, and involved specialized lines • Invest a lot of capital in trucks and distribution networks • Purchase major inputs: packaging in can, bottle and class , sweetener …

  23. 23. 4.  Can  Coke  and  Pepsi  sustain  their  profits  in   the  wake  of  fla.ening  demand  and  the   growing  popularity  of  non-­‐CSDs?     Alternative beverages bring increasing profitability due to the health consciousness of the consumers. •  Coca-cola and Pepsi can sustain their profits in the industry •  Adding new products allows larger margins and brings more potential opportunities. •  Shifting the advertising budget and marketing slogans to deliver the messages related to health consciousness also increase the demand of the consumers.
