The idea of “company saves money as it produces higher quantities of its product, as in all business areas, the more you buy, the more you save”
Step by step Experiential Learning can be obtained by companies when do Internationalization.
For example, The Uppsala Model explains how companies’ internationalization process be described in incremental steps
Experiential Learning refers to the process of accumulating market knowledge in foreign markets
Green Toys have already served the overseas markets by exporting in several countries
Green toys must expand to European (EU) market because, it offers as the best market to:
Expand market shares and sales
Poland can provide the resources they need and where they can get them at the lowest price, whereas the neighbouring country especially Germany, UK, Austria and Belgium provides the best market in terms of consumer’s demand.
Ability to produce new product line
Migitate the risk of depending on just one market.
expand globally for defensive reasons-to protect themselves from competitors or potential competitors, or to gain advantage over them.
Why EU MARKET?
Country similarities between US and UK therefore reduced administrative and compliance cost.
Safety requirement of toys are similar in US and UK. Thus, product must be made in Europe for European market (know-how can be transferred).
Management can better stay in control of production processes by keeping production close to the main markets.
The short product life cycle of toys drives the need for constant for innovation and research and development, rather than advantage of low wages.
Demand for recycle toys in Europe is high (ESCIP Consortium, 2013). Parents are looking for safety and quality as main criteria, and they are less sensitive on price (ESCIP Consortium, 2013).
Why not China?
Although Asian market is is the largest market, but
Local supplier (US) are not able to meet the demand of this market, thus, there is a need to expand production in China.
But, Toys made in China as not safe. They contains serious chemicals that posses deadly risk to children (Consumer Product Safety Commission, 2010).
Companies take a great pride in their products, thus any negative feedback will tarnish their reputation.
China is still working on its recycling policies, but their environmental concerns is still limited, and but most worrying is consumer’s mentality towards recycling is still low (NationalGeogrpahic, 2011; New Yorker, 2014).
Thus, due to the awareness and attitude, the demand for recycle items will be low even if the potential market is huge.
Risk of counterfeit in China and Hong Kong (ESCIP Consortium, 2013).
