Samsung Pestle and Swot Analysis 2018

Samsung electronics is a technology company majorly dealing in the design, manufacture and marketing of smartphones, tablets and personal computers. The global smartphone market is a prominent oligopoly with both high-end and low-end players. Samsung being a high-end market player faces intense competition from Apple and low-end players like Huawei, Xiaomi who are affecting its market share. In 2017, Samsung had a global smartphone shipment market share of 21.6% with major competitors Apple and Huawei having 14.7% and 10.4% respectively (Statista 2018f). Various external factors affect the growth of Samsung and by using a pestle analysis, we realize how the political factors like the 3% increase in corporate taxes in South Korea threatens its profits, how high economic growth in US affects Samsung and how the Chinas growing population of the elderly and the middle class affects its profit margins.

Netflix Swot Analysis 2020

Founded by Reed Hasting and Marc Randolph, Netflix is the biggest American media service provider and production company. The streaming giant has grown to become the biggest media streaming service in the world, with more than 183 million paid subscribers worldwide and viewership of at least 37% global internet users.As the biggest online streaming service globally, Netflix has been enjoying consistent growth during the last few years. But unlike rivals, it was the biggest beneficiary of the global lockdown and stay-at-home measures introduced all across the world following the onset of Covid-19. Global subscriber base during the first 3months of 2020 alone doubled. In the US alone, it added close to 7million new subscribers in the first quarter of 2020, compared to only 550,000 it added during the same quarter in 2019.

As a result, Netflix is much better positioned for a post-COVID-19 world compared to rivals. Using SWOT, this report examine why even though rising competition looms large and content production costs remain a major weakness, the lasting legacy of covid-19 on streaming habits, in line with a continued shift to online/mobile streaming will play a key role in shaping the streaming battlefield, arguing that Netflix is in a much better shape to dominate compared to rivals.

PESTLE and SWOT analysis of Aldi 2018

The UK food retailing industry is characterized by price wars, heavy discounting and increased merger and acquisition activity as seen in the recent merger of Tesco and wholesaler Bookers Group as well as the much anticipated merger of Sainsburys and Asda (Sainsdas). While a Brexit-led lull in consumer spending has played a part in creating this state of affairs for UK supermarkets especially the Big Four, it is Aldi and to a lesser extent Lidl, who have played a massive part in shaking up the UK food retailing industry. They are the only two food retailers in the UK who have been recording double digit growth rates since 2010, during a time when sales and market shares of the Big Four were in freefall. Since 2010, Aldi has increased its market share from 1.6% to 6.8% in 2018, taking it from the 11th largest grocer to now 5th and predicted to overtake Wm Morrisons. Using Pestle, Swot, BCG Matrix and Porters Five Forces analysis, this report examines the macro environment and industry structure of the UK food retailing industry to understand the forces and trends driving competition and how Aldi has been responding. While some trends such as UK consumers continuing to trade down favour it, others such as digitisation innovations and internal weaknesses including its limited product assortment, may hamper future growth in the UK and other key markets such as the US and Australia.
 

PESTLE and SWOT analysis of Huawei 2017

As Trump escalates trade war tensions between the USA and China, Huawei has found itself, like many Chinese mobile and telecommunications companies including ZTE and China Mobile, a victim of the hostile climate the rivalry between the two countries has induced. With investigations underway by the Justice Department on whether Huawei violated U.S. export sanctions related to Iran, Huawei is facing a potential ban on its operations in the US, a fate already suffered by ZTE. Its Mate 10 smartphone has already been blocked from sale in the USA after AT&T and Verizon dropped it due to government pressure, putting Huawei at a competitive disadvantage against major rivals like Apple and Samsung who have established leading market positions in the USA. Using key strategic frameworks including PESTLE, SWOT, BCG Matrix and Porters Five Forces, 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 how Huawei can utilise its brand competencies so as to take advantage of ever changing environmental opportunities while at the same time neutralising emerging threats that threaten to chip away at its success.

In addition, we look at how developments in technology and demographics like increase of consumers using smartphones can favor further growth of China Mobile. Using the swot analysis, we identify China Mobile’s major strength and weaknesses that can be improved upon.
