Analyzing Business Markets and Business Buying Behavior

  1. 1. Chapter 8 Analyzing Business Markets and Business Buying Behavior
  2. 2. Organizational Buying • This is the decision-making process by which formal organizations establish the need for purchased products and services and identify, evaluate, and choose among alternative brands and suppliers. • For example, rather than manufacturing the parts themselves, computer manufacturers often buy computer parts and put them together to create a finished product. • (Lenovo Product with Intel Processor)
  3. 3. The Business MarketVersusThe Consumer Market •For use in the operation of a business or organization. •To manufacture other products •For resale to others Organizational Product For personal or household use Consumer Product
  4. 4. Business Market • consists of all the organizations that acquire goods and services used in the production of other products or services that are sold, rented, or supplied to others. • Example: • Mattel buys everything from plastic to paints to produce toys.
  5. 5. Fewer Buyers, larger Buyers Fewer buyers: Business marketers normally deal with far fewer buyers than do consumer marketers. Larger buyers: Buyers for a few large firms do most of the purchasing in many industries.
  6. 6. Close Supplier-customer Relationship • Business Market relationship is often are more complex than consumer relationships, and they require superior communication among the organizations’ personnel. • Basic aim here is long term relationship. • primary goal of business market relationship is to provide advantages( lower price, quicker delivery, better quality and reliability, customized product features, more favorable financing terms and so on).
  7. 7. Geographically Concentrated Buyers • Certain industries locate in particular areas to be close to customers. • concentrated buyers Geographical concentration of producers helps to reduce selling cost. • Business marketers need to closely monitor regional shifts of certain industries. Selling costs are reduced with the geographical concentration of the producers.
  8. 8. Derived Demand • Derived Demand refers to the linkage between demand for a company’s output and its purchases of resources such as machinery, components, suppliers and raw materials. • Ex.The demand for computer microprocessor chips derived from the demand for personal computer.
  9. 9. Inelastic Demand • Demand throughout an industry will not change significantly due to the price change. • Example: • If the price of lumber drops, a construction firm will not necessarily buy more lumber from its supplier unless another factor – such as low mortgage inteterest rates – causes more consumers to purchase new homes.
  10. 10. Fluctuating Demand Derived demand creates volatility in business market demand. This happens when the demand for business goods and services tends to be more volatile than the demand for consumer goods and services. • Example: Assume the sales volume for a gasoline retailer is increasing at an annual rate of 5%. Now supposed the demand for this gasoline brand slows to a 3% annual increase.This slow down might persuade the firm to keep its current gasoline pumps and replace them only market conditions improve.
  11. 11. Professional Purchasing • In the business market, the purchases are often made by trained purchasing officials. Purchasing policies, constraints, requirements etc are to be followed. • Some companies designate centralized purchasing departments to serve the entire firm, and others allow each unit to handle its own buying. A supplier may deal with one purchasing agent or several decision makers at various levels. Each of these structures results in different buying behavior. Example : request for quotation, proposals, and purchase contacts.
  12. 12. Several Buying Influences • More people typically influence business buying decisions. Buying committees are common in the purchase of major goods; marketers have to send well-trained sales reps and often sales teams to deal with these well-trained buyers. • Example: Metal supplier Phelps Dodge uses an “account management approach” to reach all the key people who influence business buying decisions in customer organizations.
  13. 13. Multiple Sales Calls •Large sale cycles (often measured in years) for large projects. Average industrial sale takes four sales calls to close. •In case of capital equipment sale for large projects,it may take many attempts to fund a project, and the sales cycle-between quoting a job and delivering a product.
  14. 14. Directed Purchasing •Business buyers often buy directly from the manufacturers rather than through intermediaries. •Example: mainframes, aircrafts etc.
  15. 15. Reciprocity •Business buyers often select suppliers who also buy from them. •A practice of Buying from suppliers who are also customers – is a controversial practice in a number of procurement situations. •An office manufacturer may favor a particular supplier of component parts if the supplier has recently made a major purchase of the manufacturer’s products.
  16. 16. Leasing • Leasing is a process by which a firm can obtain the use of certain fixed assets for which it must pay a series of contractual, periodic, or tax deductible payments. • leasing serves as an alternative method for customers looking to use high-priced products and services . • For example, customers often lease software products.The process works similar to leasing a car, where customers pay a fee over time to use the technology without owning the equipment. At the end of the lease, the hardware is returned or purchased at a fair market price .
  17. 17. Buying Situations •Buying behavior also involves the degree of effort the purchase decision demands and the levels within the organization where it is made. •1) straight rebuying 2) modified rebuying 3) new -task buying
  18. 18. Systems Buying and Selling Systems Buying • A single provider provides the total package for the buyer’s needs • practice originated with government purchases of major weapons and communications systems. • May involve turnkey solutions Systems Selling • Manufacturers sell entire systems • Supplier provides all MRO items (maintenance, repair, operating)
  19. 19. Turnkey Solution •is a type of project that is constructed so that it could be sold to any buyer as a completed product.This is contrasted with build to order, where the constructor builds an item to the buyer's exact specifications, or when an incomplete product is sold with the assumption that the buyer would complete it.
