PESTLE and SWOT analysis of Barclays Bank 2016-2017

2016 was a pivotal year for Barclays, embarking on one of its largest restructurings in history designed to make bank smaller, better capitalised, and less leveraged and more geographically anchored on its core UK and US geographic markets. The major decision to exit Africa is part of the mega restructuring. The bank had to contend with regulatory pressures as well as effects of Brexit as examples of some of the major external macro factors impacting their operational environment.
PESTLE is a business strategy tool used in strategy to analyse such macro environments and identify how future trends in the political, economic, social, technological, environmental and legal environments might impact individual organisations within an industry. Firms then study the key drivers of change behind the PESTEL factors. These key drivers of change constitute opportunities and threats in a firm’s external environment and industry which can be overcome by focussing on strengths and eliminating weaknesses. This is why PESTLE is only a starting point since other frameworks such as Porters Five Forces and SWOT have to be used in conjunction to help firms like Barclays utilise internal core competencies so as to take advantage of opportunities while neutralising threats in its industry.

PESTLE and SWOT analysis of Aldi 2017-2018

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 Nestle 2017

While Nestle continues to perform relatively well compared to some of its rivals such as PepsiCo, and Coca Cola, it is also facing the same critical challenge facing the entire food and drinks industry; new eating habits and lifestyles in much of the developed world. Consumer-focus on healthy beverages with less sugar content is, for example, driving the decline in sugary drinks consumption in the United States. Americans are for instance so turned off by sugary drinks they are now drinking more bottled water than soda, the first time it’s happened, amidst increased concern over their impact on health and obesity levels that have risen to the highest level in the world (Purdy 2016; Sun 2017). Such trends are not going away and mark a critical transformation in core markets, presenting both opportunities and challenges for an industry that is now at a crossroad. For many food and beverage firms such as Nestle, the pressure is to respond with new innovations, build new capabilities remaking their brand portfolios either through innovative reformulations of existing products or adding new product categories in order to tackle these new food and beverage trends sweeping the industry (Kell 2017b).

This report will identify the global food and beverage trends driving Nestlé’s external market environment focussing especially on the core UK and US markets. This will help us understand how the biggest food and beverage corporation in the world can utilize its brand competencies and take advantage of macro environmental opportunities while at the same time neutralizing emerging threats that could undermine its progress.

Pestle and Swot Analysis of Tesco 2016-17

Tesco has been the UK's most dominant supermarket for more than two decades and it is still the biggest supermarket in the UK. But all is not well with Tesco at the moment. Since 2013, the food retailing giant has posted declining UK sales. It also been losing market share in the UK from a high of 30.9% in 2012 to 827.6% as of 2018. Using Pestle, Swot and Porters Five Framework, we examine external and internal factors behind Tesco’s poor performance, such as the rise of hard discounters Aldi and Lidl, who have benefited from a significant rise in consumer frugal shopping habits since 2009. Both Aldi and Lidl have doubled their market share in five years, at the expense of the Big Four supermarkets.
