Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

The industry has low barriers to entry and the trend is steady. Industry concentration is low as the top four players account for less than 40% of industry revenue. While there is still significant market share available to new entrants, new players may be deterred by the industry's medium competition from existing operators. Current industry players benefit from the reputation they have established. As a result, they are generally able to offer competitive pricing across a range of products, and consumer incentives such as promotions and loyalty cards. The industry's mature life cycle also deters the entry of new players. The competitive nature of the industry is likely to constrain profit margins, while mergers and acquisitions among operators may hinder the success of new players.
