Porter's Five Forces

Created by Harvard Business School Professor Michael Porter in 1979, Porter's Five Forces model is designed to help analyse the particular attractiveness of an industry; evaluate investment options; and better assess the competitive environment.

The five forces are as follows:

  • Competitive rivalry
  • Supplier power
  • Buyer power
  • Threat of substitution
  • Threat of new entries
Porter's Five Forces is a framework that businesses can use to assess the potential profitability of an industry or market sector. The framework is based on five key forces that affect the profitability of an industry:

1. The bargaining power of buyers: This is the extent to which buyers are able to negotiate favorable terms with suppliers.

2. The bargaining power of suppliers: This is the extent to which suppliers are able to negotiate favorable terms with buyers.

3. The threat of new entrants: This is the extent to which new businesses can enter the market and compete with existing businesses.

4. The threat of substitute products or services: This is the extent to which alternative products or services can meet the needs of customers.

5. The competitive rivalry within the industry: This is the extent to which businesses within the industry are competing with each other.

5GN Networks Limited scores relatively HIGH on the first three forces, indicating that the company has good potential for profitability. The company's bargaining power with buyers and suppliers is strong, and the threat of new entrants is LOW. However, the company faces a MODERATE threat from substitute products and services, and the competitive rivalry within the industry is high.
