China Mobile is an investment holding company engaged in telecommunications and related businesses such as mobile businesses which offer voice, roaming and data services, wireline broadline businesses and Internet of Things.

It accounts for 70% of China’s telecom market. Various external factors have hindered the growth of China Mobile and by using a pestle analysis, we realize how the political factors like Trump’s order to block China Mobile from operating in the US affects its profitability, the effect of unemployment on China Mobile. 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 Apple’s major strength and weaknesses that can be improved upon.

Primark pestle and swot analysis 2018

The UK clothing industry is perhaps the most competitive industry in the UK, with the top four clothing retailers such as M&S, Primark, Next and the Arcadia Group controlling only 25% of the total market share. In similar industries such as the UK food retailing, Tesco alone controls more than 25% of its market, yet the Big Four in clothing retailing only control 25% in total, a point which illustrates how fragmented Britain’s fashion retailing industry is.  Despite a fragmented industry, it is Primark which has been the clear winner, with statistics showing the Irish retailer sold more clothing than any other retailer in Britain as of January 2018. It has enjoyed such tremendous growth over the last 10 years due to its low cost fashion, growing from 4th largest clothing retailer in 2013 to 2nd in 2018 and predicted to overtake market leader Marks & Spencer in 2018.

Using Pestle, Swot, Porters Five Forces and the Value Chain, this report strategically looks at the macro environmental factors and key trends driving the UK clothing retail industry and how Porters five forces of competition have shaped the structure of the industry in a way that benefits Primark more than major rivals. In doing so, we examine Primark’s value chain and cost leadership advantage and whether this can help it to build a sustainable competitive advantage in the face of trends such as Brexit or the ubiquity of smartphone shopping given Primark doesn’t even own an online shop. The report concludes with personal recommendations and suggestions for the organizations future strategic practice.

Airbnb Pestle and Swot Analysis 2019

Pestle and Swot Analysis of Lenovo 2017

Lenovo is a Chinese technology firm founded by Liu Chuanzhi in 1984, currently engaged in the design, manufacture and marketing of personal computers, tablets, smartphones, smart televisions, servers as well as related software, accessories and third party applications. Lenovo is the bestselling PC brand in China as well currently being the largest producer of personal computers in the world accounting for over 21.3% of the global market share, ahead of closest rivals Hewlett Packard and Dell. Key products include ThinkPad and Yoga tablets. But a recent report by Mintel (2017) showed Lenovo lagging behind Apple in terms of overall market volume share when it comes to tablet computers. It also lags behind Chinese rivals Huawei, BBK (which offers the Oppo and Vivo brands) and Xiaomi in the Chinese smartphone market. It further lags behind both Apple and Samsung in the global market for smartphones. In other words, Lenovo is stuck in the middle. Nevertheless, current macro trends actually favour Lenovo to expand global market share in the desktop, laptop and tablet computer markets if it can utilize its innovative strengths and market opportunities. 
Using PESTLE and SWOT, this report thus examines how Lenovo can take advantage of certain core strengths such as new innovations, as well as opportunities arising out of a very competitive external environment (see Toshiba section) in order to benefit. Some of the favourable trends Lenovo can benefit from include firstly, the exit of Toshiba from the European PC market in 2016 which has already had a positive impact on the volume share of other major players in the UK computer market and others detailed in the report.

PESTLE and SWOT analysis of Haier 2017

On August 13 2018, US president signed into law the FIRRMA bill, a piece of legislation that many see as an anti-China bill designed to stop Chinese firms acquiring sophisticated US technology via merger or acquisition of US technologies and thus hurt US national security.

Using pestle and Swot, this report will examine the external macro environment currently affecting Haier, China’s leading manufacturer and retailer of household appliances and consumer electronics.
