International Marketing Analysis:
Group 5


The country known as the Netherlands, and unofficially as Holland, is situated in Western Europe, bound by Belgium to the South, Germany to the east, and coastline on the north and west.

Firstly a neutral state, The Netherlands has joined many organizations, most prominently, NATO, the EU, and the UN.

These geographical advantages, together with the inherent "can do" attitude of the Dutch people, have established the Netherlands as a great trading nation.

The Dutch economy is very open and relies on international trade.

Business Environment
"God create the world, but the Dutch created Holland"
Government intervention has historically been minimalist. The workforce in the Netherlands is highly educated, flexible and extremely motivated - and is, of course, one of the most multilingual nations in the world!

The openness of the Dutch economy is just one of the reasons which has made the Netherlands extremely popular with foreign companies. The government's favourable tax treatment for profits made by multinationals has done much to encourage foreign direct investment.

Netherlands GDP & Market Share
GDP/Capita 2012: $46,054.41

GDP Growth Rate 2012: -1.0% annual change

Avg. Income/Capita 2012: $48,250 High Income, 9th on GNI Index

Inflation Rate 2012: 2.4%

The market for luxury goods remains highly fragmented with mainly international brands gaining the largest distribution presence and their position reinforced by continuing support in terms of advertising and new product development.

The Netherlands provides businesses with a perfect strategic location from which to serve and service markets within the EU, plus central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Amsterdam is the largest city in the Netherlands and is the official capital, and it will provide a perfect market for Prada to enter into, with millions of tourists and Dutch alike visiting Amsterdam and the rest of Holland each year.

In Summation
GDP: 26.5 million
GDP per capita: $1600 (2010 estimate)
Ease of Doing Business Rank: 107

Product Market Analysis
In 2013, luxury goods sales are expected to exceed $318 billion worldwide

Over the next five years, spending within this market is expected to increase by more than 65%

From 2000-2010 - luxury groups’ cumulative market shares have grown from 30% to over 35%

Sales of Competing Brands:
Hermes International –$4.48 B. (24% growth)
Christian Dior –$1.59 B. (24% growth)
Louis Vuitton – $8.8 B. (10.69% growth)
Chanel – $4.20 B. (24% growth)
The House of Gucci –$4.30 B. (15% growth)

Product Market Analysis
Other than Prada's direct competitors, the main threat of substitution comes from imitation

Counterfeits easily penetrate the market, which can take away a portion of the sales that should go to luxury goods companies

The global market value of the counterfeit industry is currently at $600 billion with a growth rate of 1,700%
Interesting Fact: By 2015, the economic value of the counterfeit market is expected to reach $1 Trillion
