    Porters Five Forces framework is used by companies to analyse industry attractiveness by assessing the five competitive forces. These are; threat of entry, bargaining power of suppliers, bargaining power of buyers, threat of substitutes and competitor rivalry. Porter stipulated that in any industry where the five forces are high, the industry is not attractive. High rivalry, high bargaining power of buyers and suppliers, high threat of entry and substitutes squeeze the profitability of an industry. 
    In this report, the author will use the Porters five forces framework to help us to recognize and analyze the important forces that determine the profitability of the global athletic wear industry industry. Using Porters five forces, we will evaluate the nature of competitiveness in the athletic wear industry and develop strategies for Nike accordingly.
