      Before firms can formulate market entry strategies for their new product or service, they need to understand the nature of competition in the market they are about to enter. It is crucial for predicting how competitors that are already in the market are likely to respond to the new firm’s entry. It also helps in figuring out whether the product should be positioned in terms of its price or the benefits that it generates to the consumer.

      In addition to understanding the nature of competition in the market you are about to enter, an equally important consideration is what your strengths and perhaps weaknesses are. How should you position your product so as to make it competitive vis-à-vis the competitors?

      Previously in this course we learned about the particular challenges of entering oligopolistic markets with new products and services. In this module, we will dig deeper into these challenges by learning how to identify and understand different barriers to entry and how to understand and analyse predatory acts: competitive pricing strategies aimed at deterring entry or pushing a competitor out of the market

      Many new firms suffer from the ‘liability of smallness’: they do not have the resources to do everything by themselves. Cooperating with other firms is one solution to overcome resource scarcity. Also established firms bringing new products and services to the market should carefully weigh which elements of the product or service they ought to do themselves (‘make’) and which elements to outsource to other firms (‘buy’).

      Level 6 - Industry Analysis Kunskapstest
      Tillgänglig om: Du uppnår högre än en viss poäng i Level 0 - Introduction

      An important consideration in market entry decisions is analysing the intensity of post-entry competition in the industry that the firm aspires to enter. Perhaps the most prominent tool for this purpose is Michael Porter’s five-forces framework, which is the focus of this learning module. As you will see, the five-forces analysis is like a convenient summary of the concepts that we have covered in the previous modules.

      The price of the product or service that the company enters a new market which has played a central role in the previous modules. In this module, we take a closer look at different pricing concepts from an economic perspective. Thus, instead of trying to address the whole plethora of different (psychological) pricing concepts – which are covered in detail in the marketing literature – we will focus on studying price discrimination as a fundamental economic concept for understanding strategic pricing.
