Appendix A

Five Forces Analysis of the Procter & Gamble Company

The five force analysis shows the competitive rivalry that has the highest force among
the five forces which are competitive rivalry, bargaining power of buyers, bargaining power
of suppliers, threat of substitution, threat of new entrants ("Procter & Gamble Five Forces
Analysis (Porter’s) & Recommendations - Panmore Institute," n.d.). The analysis ranks a
force as either weak, strong or moderate.

Industrial Rivalry (Strong force)

Procter & Gamble Company

4

The section determines the benefits of the competitive advantage the company has over other
firms and how the business develops strategies that give it a competitive advantage over other
companies. It analyses the influence of rival companies on the industry. The analysis ranks
industrial rivalry as a potent force due to the presence of a large number of firms, that offer a
variety of products and the low switching costs. The company needs to compete with a large
number of firms to ensure its success.

On the other hand, a large number of firms makes it difficult for organizations to compete in
the industry. Low switching costs mean that there will be a low level of consequences when a
client decides to switch from one brand to the other. The analysis thus points out to a strong
force of competition rivalry against Procter and Gamble company.

A threat of new entrants (Moderate force)

The excellent performance of the company is due to the absence of new companies in the
market that can compete effectively. In case a new company arises that can get the capital to
compete directly, it would threaten the existence of the company. The economies of scale
don't favor new companies since the firm is a known international company hence limiting
new entrants. The external factors used to analyze include low switching costs (Strong force),
economies of scale (moderate Force), capital (Moderate Force).

Bargaining Power of suppliers (Weak force)

The force analysis the effects of suppliers on the market conditions. The external factors
considered include the Level of Supply (Weak force), the presence of many suppliers (weak
force), control of distribution flow by suppliers (Moderate Force). Suppliers have control
over how the company`s products flow from their facilities to the consumers. However, since

there are several suppliers, this reduces their ability to limit the number of goods supplied in
the market ("Procter & Gamble Five Forces Analysis (Porter’s) & Recommendations Panmore Institute," n.d.). Therefore, the bargaining of suppliers is a slight issue while making
a strategic decision.

Bargaining Power of Buyers (Weak Force)

Often called the bargaining power of customers. One of the company`s primary objective is
to attract more customers ...
