Facebook Porters Five Forces Analysis 2019

Facebook boasts some incredible statistics that highlight why it has been very successful. A Porters five forces analysis of Facebook shows that the California based social network wields immense power over vertical five forces primarily Facebook buyers and suppliers whose bargaining power is low or moderate at best. This is predominantly because Facebook has achieved strong network effects from economies of scale and scope, which have ensured the social media network continues to enjoy high switching costs and strong lock-in effects over users. 
But while these factors have ensured Facebook’s dominance over rivals in the social media industry, the company remains vulnerable to the 3 horizontal forces of competition namely substitutes, new player entry and intensifying rivalry between current players. As a Facebook porters five forces analysis revealed, the social media industry is highly competitive with a rising number of substitute services such as Reddit, Digg, EyeEm, Next Door, or Family Wall, many of which can offer similar performance benefits such as sharing photos, videos and messages even though they are not direct competitors of Facebook. 
So though Facebook has created barriers that currently protect its market share, it remains vulnerable to new players who could take advantage of its privacy issues to exacerbate an exodus of more than 3 million teens that’s already underway in the core markets of the UK and US. It is already locked out of the world’s most populous country, a situation exacerbated by China-USA trade war tensions. So while Facebook still wields power over the forces of vertical competition (power of buyers and suppliers), the horizontal forces of competition (competition from rivals, substitutes and new entry) exert enough pressure on the industry to limit profitability and further dominance of Facebook in the future.

PESTLE and SWOT analysis of Huawei 2020-2021

After facing multiple bans in some of its most critical markets in the West such as the United States, and UK, Huawei has also been contending with total bans in markets from other core Asian markets including Taiwan, Japan, Australia, New Zealand etc. Many of the western countries mentioned have security concerns about China and the possibility that it could use it’s 5G network equipment to spy on other countries. Such bans have posed grave obstacles to Huawei’s production capacity so much that even with the technology giant developing its own operating system, finding good quality and original components will still be challenging. In addition, Huawei has lost market share of the 5G network in crucial European markets including the core UK market, leaving alternative suppliers like Nokia and Ericsson to quickly jump in to claim it. This is an example of political factors from the external business environment that can severely impact the operations of a business.

Using key strategic frameworks including PESTLE, and SWOT, the report will identify the major drivers of change behind Huawei’s external global environment looking at the general trends and shifts driving the global mobile and telecommunications industry in general. This will help us understand not just how Huawei is being impacted by its external environment, but also how can it can utilise its brand competencies to help it take advantage of ever changing environmental opportunities while at the same time neutralising fatal threats that are continually threatening its very survival.
