5. Types of industry analysis
Porter’s Five Forces Analysis
6. Porter’s five forces industry analysis
Porter’s five forces of analysis were developed in 1979
by Michael E porter of Harvard Business School as a
simple framework for assessing and evaluating the
competitive strength and position of a business
Porter’s five forces help to identify where power lies in
a business situation. This is useful both in
understanding the strength of an organization’s current
competitive position, and the strength of a position that
an organization may look to move into.
7. Porter’s five forces are:-
1. Bargaining power of Supplier : An
assessment of how easy it is for suppliers to
drive up prices. This is driven by the: number of
suppliers of each essential input, uniqueness of
their product or service, relative size and
strength of the supplier and cost of switching
from one supplier to another.
2. Bargaining power of Buyer :An assessment of
how easy it is for buyers to drive prices down.
This is driven by the: number of buyers in the
market, importance of each individual buyer to
the organization and cost to the buyer of
switching from one supplier to another. If a
business has just a few powerful buyers, they are
often able to dictate terms.
8. 3. Competitive rivalry: The main driver is the number
and capability of competitors in the market. Many
competitors, offering undifferentiated products and
services, will reduce market attractiveness.
4. Threat of substitution(products and
services): Where close substitute products exist in a
market, it increases the likelihood of customers
switching to alternatives in response to price increases.
This reduces both the power of suppliers and the
attractiveness of the market.
5. Threat of new entry or barriers to entry: Profitable
markets attract new entrants, which erodes
profitability. Unless incumbents have strong and
durable barriers to entry, for example, patents,
economies of scale, capital requirements or government
policies, then profitability will decline to a competitive
9. PESTEL ANALYSIS

Not seeing weaknesses. Be sure to ask customers
and colleagues what they experience in real life.
Not thinking ahead. It's easy to come up with nice
ideas without taking them through to their logical
conclusion. Always consider their practical impact.
Being unrealistic. Don't plan in detail for
opportunities that don't exist yet.
Relying on SWOT Analysis alone. SWOT Analysis
is valuable. But when you use it alongside other
planning tools (SOAR, TOWS or PEST), the results
will be more vigorous.
