• Large number of suppliers

• Materials are widely accessible

• Suppliers are relatively small sized with no threat of forward integration

• High switching costs, however, BMW ensures close and beneficial relationship with their suppliers (helping them out throughout recession)

• Well established brands in the industry

• Large capital required

• Very hard to achieve economies of scale (have to produce a lot to reduce the costs)

• Patents restrict entry (in case of BMW)

• Relatively easy to choose an alternative and customers are quite price sensitive

• However, does it all apply to BMW?

• Mass Customisation and High Flexibility

• It also depends on the market we are talking about

A lot of alternatives, but none of them can offer the same convenience

Public transport can seem as more environmental friendly...

However, BMW's partnership with Toyota (developing the technology for mixed engine cars, i8)...

• Large Mature Industry

• Audi, Mercedes, Lexus – all competing for the same customer

• BMW response was Strategy Number One – developing brand loyalty, focus on growth, customers, profitability and long term future.

(Helmut Panke , Chairman Of BMW 2002-2006)
"I would say: focus on who you are, what you stand for. What are the values you have in the organization? What are the values ou believe in the products and services you sell and provide? BMW build high performance products because BMW is a high performance organization".
Large investment on Research & Development of new Technologies .

Focus on the Environmental issues and ways to create more environmental friendly solutions in transport sector.
