Porter's Five Forces
Intensity of Competitive Rivalry
It’s not easy to enter because of the cost will be too high to compete with the electronics giants that already exist.
A small player will also require strong relation with suppliers and efficient manufacturing processes otherwise they could not produce at low cost.
Sony is currently the 4th rank in ‘The 100 Most Loved Companies’ by APCO worldwide and it is also one of the top 10 Best Global Green Brands that consumers associate with environmental conservation and sustainable business practices. This may attract consumer to be loyal to Sony brands and attract new buyer of those who support green product. This is a competitive threat for new industries to attract customer loyalty to establish brands.
Patent right and government regulation keeps the threat of new entries.
Threat of New Entrants
Although Sony has tries to differentiate their products through modern design, high quality graphic and superior technology.
They still have threat of substitute product like iPod over Sony Walkman, iPad or Android or Tablet Game over Sony PlayStation, and HD DVD over Blu-Ray.
Substitution like music download or streaming cause an effect on Sony recording music industry.

Beside Sony there are plenty of electronic business that are doing the same product as Sony like LCD, PlayStation, Music Recording, Tablets and also Notebook.
