ANALYSIS USING PORTER’S FIVE FORCES 26 .

these players have deep pockets and have previously also established their presence in a number of countries.  Product differentiation: These new players own a large number of firm brands most of which are successfully sold throughout its stores. 27 .ANALYSIS USING PORTER’S FIVE FORCES THREAT OF NEW ENTRANTS BARGAINING POWER OF BUYERS INTENSITY OF RIVALRY BARGAINING POWER OF SUPPLIERS THREAT OF PRODUCT SUBSTITUTES THREAT OF NEW ENTRANTS : Although the organized retail sector of India is very small. the growth potential of this market has made it attractive for foreign players. As already mentioned players like Carrefour and Tesco are planning to enter into this market by getting into alliances with already established Indian corporate. The product differentiation they bring to the table is enormous  Capital requirements: Although entering an alliance with a major Indian corporate and establishing new stores through the country may require sufficient capital investments.

Access to distribution channels: A joint venture or a partnership with retail giants as the Future Group in case of Carrefour or a reputed corporate house as the Tata Group will give these companies a very strong supply chain capacity. Carrefour understands the distribution business better than most, and Future Group is a leader in India

Government policy: A policy released recently states that, ―companies cannot sell more than 25% of their cash and carry business to ‗Group‘ Companies and that too the use should be internal. This will prove a major discouragement to the foreign entrants as they will have to reduce their 100% stakes in Indian companies. This will reduce their control over the retail model followed

BARGAINING POWER OF SUPPLIERS  Historically, suppliers enjoy a strong position of control in the retail industry. However with the growth of organized retail, many large retail players are going for vertical integration and manufacturing products under the firm brand. Since these products also give them more margin they are more inclined to promote these firm brands. This recent trend has somewhat decreased the bargaining power of suppliers in the recent past. BARGAINING POWER OF BUYERS  In retail, consumer loyalty is the most important ingredient for success. But the industry is so characterized that there are very few switching costs. Also, documented transactions in retail are very less, and hence even proper data is not available. Thus repurchase is not predictable  Price of competitor products can be lowered all too easily in this industry, leading to a price war. Since both the companies being analyzed specialize in discount and bargain selling, a price war is inevitable. Unless the discount selling is utilized to lock customers in loyalty programs etc, the customers would just buy from where it is cheaper

28

THREAT OF PRODUCT SUBSTITUTES Since the retail industry is considered over here the threat of product substitutes does not essentially come into the picture. INTENSITY OF RIVALRY AMONG COMPETITION   This may be a lesser deterrent for new entrants as the industry of organized retail itself is growing, even though actual existing figures are very low The number of firms competing for a share of the pie is also low. Apart from Indian firms, there are very few foreign players large enough to maintain sustainability over some years, that have chosen India‘s dense and fast growing Retail industry  However with more number of foreign as well as domestic players trying to venture into the sector this scenario might change very quickly and the industry may become very competitive.

The entry of major foreign players as Carrefour will have substantial impact on BhartiWalMart joint venture. DRIVERS OF COMPETITIVE ABILITY

Shaded Area = Market commonality between firms. The rectangle = Resource endowment A. The triangle = Resource endowment B. Walmart and Carrefour both specialize in cost saving shopping for daily needs. Both are cost leaders in their respective geographies. They both are strong distribution system leaders. In India, both the firms will be facing the same fast growing middle class with increasing disposable incomes. The supplier market and procurement channels may overlap to a large extent.

AWARENESS The information available in the industry is symmetric to both the firms. The government impositions are the same, the native retail players are themselves competing for the same resources. The question to be asked is this: Will demand drive the growth story of such joint ventures by foreign conglomerates with Indian Business houses. MOTIVATION Carrefour, when the joint venture with Indian firm Future Group becomes a reality, is going to compete on the same national level almost on the same geographical, cultural and ethnic demographics as Walmart. There is more than enough motivation for Walmart to predict and prevent future bad performance brought about by a competitor as strong as Carrefour. ABILITY Carrefour has the sourcing for whatever resources it requires. It already has a very good relationship with suppliers in the countries it is present in. if it decides to source materials from India as well, it needs to establish its credibility and build relations with suppliers from scratch. Instead, if it sells its existing portfolio of products after determining suitability to Indian markets, it will have to utilize Future Group‘s existing logistics network which itself is very strong. Although WalMart has been present in the Indian market, It has not been able to develop a huge first movers advantage which would keep it far ahead of the competition. MARKET COMMONALITY Since Carrefour and Walmart will be competing for the same resources and courting the same customers, Carrefour may be looking at newer markets where its competitor is not present yet. It may be the rural grocery format that it has successfully implemented in France and other parts where it sells dairy, meat and other products on a daily basis to its

so that will not be a major concern. 32 . Bharti is strong with its logistics. This is one market that is potentially huge in India.rural customers. though there are indications that it could be Walmart. So it is difficult to say which firm will be the weaker when it comes to obtaining resources as of now. whose population lives mostly in villages. However along with this Carrefour will also scavenge WalMart‘s current market. Carrefour enjoys the advantage of having a partner who is respected both for its supplier relations and its distribution channel. RESOURCE DISSIMILARITY Walmart may face certain issues with the suppliers in the Indian context as relationships should be built with them.

This sampling method involves purposive or deliberate selection of particular units of the universe for constituting a sample which represents the universe. In other words. has the same probability of being selected for example.SAMPLE DESCRIPTION Sample selection procedure – businessmen from different areas of Raipur were taken as sample. if we have to select a sample of 300 items from a universe of 52 . stratified sampling. Probability samples are those based on simple random sampling. in case of finite universe. ii) Simple random sampling – This type of sampling is also known as chance sampling or probability sampling where each and every item in the population has an equal chance of inclusion in the sample and each one of the possible samples. judgment sampling and quota sampling techniques. i) Deliberate sampling – It is also known as purposive or non-probability sampling. systematic sampling. Sample Size – The total sample size was 50. With probability samples each element has a known probability of being included in the sample but the non-probability samples do not allow the researcher to determine this probability. Thus. a sample design is a definite plan determined before any data are actually collected for obtaining a sample from a given population. the plan to select 50 of city‘s all retailers in a certain way constitutes a sample design. Samples can be either probability samples or non-probability samples. cluster/area sampling whereas non-probability samples are those based on convenience sampling. SAMPLE DESIGN The researcher must decide the way of selecting a sample or what is popularly known as the sample design.

then a number of these smaller areas are randomly selected. For cluster sampling this list of 15.000 customers. iii) Systematic sampling – In some instances the most practical way of sampling is to select every 15th name on a list. Using the random number tables is another method of random sampling. then we can put the names or numbers of all the 15. Under area sampling we first divide the total area into a number of smaller nonoverlapping areas. In such a design the selection process starts by picking some random point in the list and then every nth element is selected until the desired number is secured.000 items. generally called geographical clusters. Sampling of this type is known as systematic sampling. 53 . every 10th house on side of a street and so on.000 card holders could be formed into 100 clusters of 150 card holders each.000 items on the slips of a paper and conduct a lottery. Sampling Method Used: The sampling method used for filling the questionnaire is Non Probability Sampling in which Convenient Sampling was used. and all units in these small are included in the sample. iv) Cluster sampling – It involves grouping the population and then selecting the groups or clusters rather than individual elements for inclusion in the sample. Suppose some departmental store wishes to sample its credit card holders. It has issued its cards to 15. v) Area sampling – It is quite to cluster sampling and it often talked about when the total geographical area of interest happens to be big one.15.
