4.0 EXTERNAL MARKET AUDIT

4.1. Macro Environment

Every organization should understand their operating environment as it allows them to take
advantage of the opportunities and minimize threats. The following pest analysis illustrates the
environment of UAE in which Noode will be operating.

Political and Legal

UAE is a low crime and politically stable economy; as a result foreign investors are attracted to
UAE as diversification strategies. The UAE government is on a regular effort improving business
relations with trade and investment partners in US and Asia.

Economical

Increase in Oil prices and non oil based revenue witnessed a high growth rate of the UAE’s The
UAE is strategically located in the midst of one of the richest regions and is served by over 120
shipping lines and linked via 85 airlines linked to over 130 destinations making it an attractive
industrial hub coupled with No corporate and income tax, low custom duty of 4% and no foreign

Page 5 of 30
exchange controls makes it more attractive for foreign investors.

High inflation rates and fear of possibilities of exchanges rates de-pegging against the US$ keeps
the investors away from making huge investments in the UAE economy.

Page 6 of 30
Social

Arabic traditions and cultures are respected by affluent nationals. A notable concern is on the
nation’s preference of Islamic value based products like Sharia complaint Islamic Banking
products, Islamic Sukuks, etc.

The economy has a multinational workforce and cosmopolitan lifestyle which encourages
foreigners in investing in the economy as compared to other countries in the region. People can
follow any religion and culture.

Technology

There is huge investment from the government to develop the infrastructure, good telecom system,
internet facilities, etc. The implementations of the latest technologies to support the banking
system have made UAE as advanced as any other developed economy in the world. The findings
of the external marketing audit are summarized in the Exhibits below.

Page 7 of 30
4.2. Micro Environment

The analysis of the competitiveness that is prevailing for Noode in the UAE market is made within
the context of ‘Porter’s five forces’ and is expected to highlight the strength and weaknesses of
each force in order to understand their impact

Diagram 1 – Porters Five forces

Threat of New Entrants – Moderate

UAE has strict regulations when it comes to imports of toiletries and cosmetics. The exclusive and
profitable trade environment persists to open more opportunities for foreign companies to step in
especially during Dubai Shopping festival and Gulf Beauty Expo. However consumers in this part
of the world are more selective in their choice of personal care items. Hence opt for international
brands which are trusted and famous

Bargaining power of Suppliers – Low


Since Noode is a supplier with the aim of due rapid expansion in the country infrastructure to
accelerate in available retail space in the coming five years, the opportunity to trade via the Jebel
Ali Free Zone is favored and with out VAT the risk is low.
Competitor rivalry within Industry - High

Page 8 of 30
Cosmetic and toiletries manufacturers are moving to UAE to target the high consumption of
cosmetics and toiletries “According to a recent survey, consumption of cosmetics and fragrances in
the Gulf States is among one of the highest per capita in the world with the average purchase
estimated in the region of AED 1,229 per head,“ said, Mr. Eckhard Pruy, CEO of Epoc Messe
Frankfurt toi (N.A.2008).Since Noode will be newly launched and the competition is high, Noode
has develop a good name for itself to make it exclusive and successful

Bargaining Power of Buyers – High


The Bargaining power of Buyers can be considered as a high threat as they are constantly looking
for better pricings. There are many skin care products company who are offering high-quality
products at attractive prices and customers can receive benefits at finer rates. Therefore quality and
price is important to attract customers and avoid losing them to competition.

Threat of Substitutes - High


According to recent study the space in shopping malls of UAE has been growing by approx 50%
yearly out of which the retail space dedicated to beauty products from around the world has grown
by over 30% in the past three years. This demonstrates that there are several international brands in
the market offering high quality products at affordable prices.

for which it has appointed a new Head of Marketing who will be supported by three marketing
managers. The head of marketing will implement plans and report directly to the MD.

The marketing managers will be responsible for the marketing activities in their own sectors and
will have marketing officers reporting to them. Budgets will be allocated to the managers by the
Head of Marketing and their performance will be evaluated every month.
