Opportunity: Increasing online purchase of Oral Care Products
There has been a noticeable shift in the retailing of oral care products across the world in recent years. Online retailers are slowly being chosen over traditional distributors, retailers, and pharmacies. Buying oral care products through e-commerce portals offers several advantages, such as the accessibility of multi-brand oral care products at comparatively lower prices, ease of purchasing, and free shipping. The effective sales of oral care products through e-commerce have encouraged increasing investment towards these channels by major market players.
Challenge: High Dependency on Retail/Consumer Stores
Prominent players in the oral care market are highly reliant on on retail stores as they are the direct customers for manufacturers. Large stores & supermarkets such as Target, Wal-Mart and Costco have high bargaining strength; the constant trend of consolidation among retailers could thus generate a cost and margin pressure on manufacturers. Also, the high bargaining power of buyers may destructively impact the business of manufacturers.
