Porters Five Forces Analysis
Bargaining Power of Suppliers, 2016
Frozen French fries occupy the highest share in the global market. Potatoes from warehouses or directly from the fields are processed via high-tech machinery to manufacture different varieties of the frozen potato. Apart from that, there is low product differentiation in the industry, leading to less switching cost. The presence of a large number of domestic and international raw material or potato suppliers at low cost lessens the suppliers bargaining power. There is low threat of forward integration from suppliers in the market, which further lessens the bargaining power of suppliers. Multiple sources are present for supplying potato as raw material to manufacture different kinds of frozen potato. Thus, considering the above factors, the bargaining power of suppliers is low, and is expected to remain as such during the forecast period.
