Low prices Low prices are the cornerstone of the IKEA vision and our business idea Low prices make well-designed, functional home furnishings available to everyone Constantly trying to do everything a little better, a little simpler, more efficiently and always cost-effectively

Slide 11:

A better everyday life Taken the straightforward approach to the furniture business, by starting with developing furniture with the price tag in mind. This is the IKEA way, to maximize the use of raw materials in order to fulfill people's needs and preferences by offering quality products at an affordable price

Ikea & the Environment:

Ikea & the Environment Use of wood-recyclable, biodegradable and renewable material Select wood that is from verified, well-managed forests that have been certified Free disposal of light bulbs Minimize costs Selecting the right environmental friendly products Use leftover material Employees are “environmental co- ordinators ” working to increase environmental awareness


PORTER’s 5 FORCE ANALYSIS Threat of Buyers growing bargaining power There is a little power because of the existing low-price options IKEA ensure that their customers in all aspects will be satisfied for quality service they provide Focused their marketing approach on demands and needs of the buyer IKEA uses their corporate responsibility as a good public image to their customers IKEA Family -card as a membership

Slide 14:

Threat of Suppliers growing bargaining power IKEA has its thousands of suppliers that set standards in delivering the materials Because of the low-pricing, IKEA’s profit margin also affects the prices in raw materials than by prices in labour IKEA has a wide network of 1300 suppliers. They carefully select the manufacturer of its products. The company has own production factories and designers which makes it less dependent on others Bargaining power of supplier could be threat for the profit of the company

Slide 15:

Threat of Substitute Products There is no specific product that can be a substitute for the furniture but IKEA at least, have to keep up with the latest trends, to avoid becoming out of style Problems faced due to distribution channels

Slide 16:

Threat of Intense Segment Rivalry The IKEA’s furniture competitors’ offers different styles and functionality Conrin targets a new low cost in terms of furniture line; Crate & Barrel offers a furniture in a box which is subject in higher prices Ethan Allen aimed at a more upscale market Wal-Mart is equipped in a big box furniture that is categorized under the general store must-have-items, but don’t have much of a style IKEA is the most successful in delivering the complete package for the customers that reflects on weak rivalries There will always be substitutes for furniture’s but IKEA competes with price and there isn't competitors in same price range

Slide 17:

Threat of New Entrants IKEA stores do not reach many small towns and this is an opportunity for the new competitors to move into small and midsize cities with smaller stores and less selection. But not easier in city because new entrants have to establish a vast supply chain and create a unique brand name The furniture market is already highly competitive - the risk of new entrants is not extremely high - huge capital needed to start the business
