Porter’s 5 Forces & the Russian Commercial Banking Sector and Wealth Management Industry

...PORTER’S 5 FORCES & THE RUSSIAN COMMERCIAL BANKING SECTOR AND WEALTH MANAGEMENT INDUSTRY Today’s Russian Federation is characterized by low competitiveness in the context of firm strategy and rivalry, a supportive infrastructure for industries, a mixed bag when factor or input conditions are assessed (human resources, capital resources physical infrastructure, etc.…), and a polarized consumer base, where some hold most of the wealth, while the rest are quite average or below the poverty line. It is an overachieving country, with high income compared to low competitive index. In Porter’s Diamond-E Framework, Russia is in the Efficiency-Driven Stage; it is an investment-driven economy. This is not congruent with the general analysis of the banking industry worldwide, when looking at it through Porter’s Five Forces Model. Applying the model to this sector yields high barriers of entry, a moderate power of suppliers in terms of their ability to lure away human capital, increased power of buyers in terms of switching costs, many substitutes, and a high competitive rivalry. To better assess the entry of The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) into the Russian market, one must also consider Canada-Russian relations. Being the two largest Artic countries, Canada and Russia share many common opportunities and challenges. The countries have a long history of cooperation on issues such as science, energy and environmental protection, and in 2012, promising areas of......

Similarly, if the economy is facing a slow growth, the chances of the company growing fast are lesser. Currency & commodity price movements Most companies use commodities like coal, metals and crude oil as their inputs. Any change in the price of these commodities has an implication on the profitability of the company.

Interest rate movements Companies borrow money to invest for their expansions. Also, consumers borrow money to buy products. Thus, if the interest rates are high, the borrowing cost of the companies would increase. Also, consumers......

Electric Vehicle Industry Analysis 2013

...March 8, 2013 Five Forces Analysis Tesla Motors, Inc. is a luxury electric vehicle manufacturer from the United States focused towards creating increasingly affordable, efficient, and environmentally friendly vehicles.1 Tesla is a relatively new company that accounts for less than three percent of the hybrid and electric vehicle manufacturing industry.2 This report will extensively discuss the five competitive forces that influence HEV and EV manufacturing industry and how Tesla should evolve their business strategy to account for these industry forces.3 The HEV and EV manufacturing industry solely includes firms within the United States for the purposes of this report. The industry manufactures automobiles that utilize electric motors for compulsion, as opposed to traditional gas powered automobiles. It is an emerging industry currently in the growth stage. The industry is highly concentrated with just three major players, Toyota Motor Corporation, Ford, and Honda Motor Company Ltd. The industry is profitable and expected to grow another 6.3% annually the next five years.4 In this industry the threat of new entrants is weak for a variety of reasons. First, expensive and expansive manufacturing plants are utilized by all major firms in this industry, enabling leaders to produce larger volumes of HEVs and EVs than their competitors with fewer manufacturing resources. Considering firms in this industry produce relatively large volumes at lower costs, supply-side......

Commercial Airline Industry

...Introduction Boeing and Airbus have established themselves as market makers when it comes to the commercial airline manufacturing industry. As the only two major players, both companies have significant leverage over the supply chain, but competition has been intense between the two rivals. This intensity has driven both companies to pursue alternative methods of creating value along the supply chain. This analysis seeks to examine the soundness of the strategic supply chain decisions that have been made. However, it is first important to identify the key elements and driving factors for manufacturers in the industry. Market Forces of the Commercial Airplane Industry Bargaining Power of Buyers The aircraft manufacturing industry currently is a duopoly, which consists of Boeing and Airbus. The lack of providers means that buyers have relatively no bargaining power. According to an article written by Daniel Michaels of the Wall Street Journal, some customers are now expecting to receive their shipment of Dreamliners approximately four years late. With no available alternatives, the buyers do not have any choice but to wait. Bargaining Power of Suppliers The industry has a global supplier market that can be closely linked due to the presence of modern technology. Web-based programs allow instant communication and the sharing of data such as the complex plans used during the construction of the aircraft. The access to instant global communication as well...

U.S. Motor Vehicles and Parts Industry Profitability Analysis (Using Porter’s Five Forces of Competition Framework)

...U.S. Motor Vehicles and Parts Industry Profitability Analysis (Using Porter’s Five Forces of Competition Framework) Introduction This paper will focus on the U.S. automotive industry and the low profitability it is currently experiencing. The U.S. auto industry can be considered an oligopoly with just three main players; General Motors (GM), Ford and Chrysler – known as the Big Three. From 1999 thru 2005, this segment recorded only 9.8% ROE, ranking it 36 out of the 50 industries (on page 68), resulting in the bottom 28th percentile. The industry’s profitability can be considered low, based on its ranking in this list of U.S. industries (against Japanese rivals, the Big Three made about $3800 less per car/truck and shrinking market share, 1996 - 74%, 2001 - 65%, 2006 - 57%). Working against the industry are high labor costs (labor costs for the Big Three are about 10% more per vehicle, or $1500 per vehicle, than Japanese), rising health care costs for an ageing workforce (Toyota competitive advantage is $900-$1400 per vehicle just on healthcare per vehicle costs), rising fuel and raw material costs, ever toughening competition from Japanese and Korean manufacturers, and the struggling U.S. dollar (yen advantage in current exchange rate). The following overview will use Porter’s Five Forces to show why the auto industry is experiencing such low profitability. The two Forces working against the industry (strong forces against profits) are (1) strong rivalry among......

Analysis of Automobile Industry

...Analysis of Pakistani Automobile Industry Introduction The dictionary says that an automobile is a land vehicle equipped to carry a driver and several passengers, generally moving on four wheels and boosted by an engine that burns gasoline, and the companies that manufacture these automobiles are categorized under the automobile industry. So simple it seems. However, in the real substance, automobiles and the auto sector mean much more than this. It represents mobility, transportation and communication. It represents an industry that has a strong impact on a dozen other sectors like steel, vending, petrol or even employment. Hence auto sales reflect not only the basic human desire for mobility but these are also an important economic indicator. Historical overview of automobile industry of Pakistan When Pakistan was established in 1947, there were neither any automobile assembly plants nor any industrial capability available for this important manufacturing of cars, Light commercial vehicles, motorcycles, trucks and buses. In 1953 Pakistan produced its first vehicle in, the Bedford trucks, under the banner of National Motors, which went on to produce about 80% of the country’s automobiles in the 60’s. In Mid 1950’s Naya Daur Motors established the first ever plant to assemble trucks and buses. In 1983 Suzuki commenced assembly of FX 800cc.

How to Ensure Equity in Commercial Exploitation of Outer Space Resources

...Research Paper On How To Ensure Equity In Commercial Exploitation Of Outer Space Resources Reference: Lee, R. J. (2012). Law and regulation of commercial mining of minerals in outer space. New York; Dordrecht, The Netherlands: Springer. Lee’s book discusses various aspects of exploitation of outer space mineral resources. Different from other authors, Lee focused his discussion on commercial exploitation and proposed a comprehensive legal framework to regulate such activities in order to benefit the mankind. His book targets a wide range of readers so there is a lot of background information about technological and policy development. Lee himself is also professional lawyer who is specialized in space law, so his book s a reliable source of information. I am able to use this work as a good reference book to discuss how ethical theories such as deontology can be applied to commercial exploitation of outer space resources. Livingston, D. (2003). A code of ethics for conducting business in outer space. Space Policy, 19(2), 93-94. Livingston’s article presents a list of code of ethics for commercial operations in outer space and serves as an independent guideline for companies that want to venture into space. His guideline provides me with a good tool to evaluate different approaches that I want to propose in my paper using ethical theories. I believe the ethical consideration is the most important factor to ensure equity of commercial exploitation of celestial......
