is a framework that explains the differences in industry. Wind energy is a monopolistic competition because of its medium entry barriers, few competitors, and some pricing power.

3.0 Starbucks Porter’s Five Forces Analysis
Porter’s five forces is generally used for strategy development and industry analysis. The five forces which shapes the competition within the industry are rivalry among competitors, the threat of substitute products and services, the entry of new competitors, the bargaining power of the buyers and the bargaining power of the suppliers.
The relationships among these forces is best presented in the following figure.
Coles and Woolworths have an enormous market share, and with this comes increased revenue. Coles and Woolworths have shown that they can afford to lose revenue to gain market share, so from this behaviour its safe to assume that the industry makes abnormal profits. High barriers to entry is another sign that large profits are being made, Coles and Woolworths have gone to unprecedented lengths to stop new firms entering the market.

affect the businesses’ hold over the market. If competitors are offering equally attractive product and service, then business may have little power to manipulate the market situation, because buyers and suppliers have varied options available in the market to make a shift from one product to the other.
4. Substitution threats: This is affected the ability of your consumers to find a different way to do what business do. If substitution is easily available and its practical, then this weakens…
It is important not to overstate the degree to
which capital requirements alone deter entry.
If industry returns are attractive and are expected to remain so, and if capital markets are
efﬁcient, investors will provide entrants with
the funds they need. For aspiring air carriers,
for instance, ﬁnancing is available to purchase
expensive aircraft because of their high resale
value, one reason why there have been numerous new airlines in almost every region.
5. Incumbency advantages…
threat of entry, bargaining power of customers, intensity of competitive rivalry and bargaining power of suppliers.

The fashion and apparel industry is one of high profits and this is why it has attracted many…
