Michael Porter s Five Forces Model

Overall industry rating: Threat of new entrants. Bargaining power of buyers. Threat of substitutes. Bargaining power of suppliers. Intensity of rivalry among competitors. X X X X High Moderate Low X

Michael Porter s Five Forces Model

Threat of New Entrants Threat of new entrants is towards lower side. Economies of scale in manufacturing, distributing, and marketing create high barriers to the national and global markets. The capital needed to build spirit manufacturing facilities and the costs associated with operating business on a national scale are extensive. The costs associated with this highly controversial industry seek high levels of sales, thus making the industry more and more prohibitive for newcomers. Government regulations are largest factor in this force

Michael Porter s Five Forces Model

Bargaining power of suppliers Barraging power of buyers is high. The quantity of alcoholic beverages that a nation consumes tends to be unaffected through recession and prosperity while the quality of the products purchased is directly related to the disposable income. A decline in disposable income shifts consumer preferences away from premium-priced brand-name products in favor of lower-priced brands i.e. switching cost is low.

Michael Porter s Five Forces Model

Threat of Substitutes & Bargaining Power of Suppliers Threat of Substitutes Threat of substitutes is low. Customer loyalty through brand awareness. The advertising restrictions placed on alcoholic beverage industry in recent years make it harder to achieve brand loyalty. Bargaining power of suppliers Supplier Power is low Products used to brew spirit are inexpensive and suppliers are numerous.

Michael Porter s Five Forces Model

Intensity of rivalry among competitors Moderate. Rise in legal and regulatory burdens, leads many manufacturers to merge in order to lower competition. Acting as oligopolies, they ensure high profit margins, cash flows, and investment returns. Though the competition is tough, The Kingfisher brand is the one of the largest supplier of beer, & the third largest producer of distilled spirits.
