The packaging industry is a group of companies whose similar products and services process the enclosing, storage, sale, use and distribution of a variety of products.

The Business Report of the Australian Major Footwear Retailer-Ugg

...globalization, the company should take actions depending on the varied circumstances to have a strong position in its marketplace. 3. Overview of the market IBISWorld Pty Ltd (2009) defines the footwear retail as a connection between the manufacturing company and customers. It also identifies that the shoe retail is mainly concerned about purchasing and promoting attractive shoes without any change to the customers. Other activities such as customer service, cash handing are also involved in the footwear retail (IBISWorld Pty Ltd, 2009). According to the statistics by IBISWorld Pty Ltd (2009), the industry has revenue of $2475.0 million between the year 2008 and 2009. But meanwhile, it experienced a real growth of -2.9%. 4. The marketing environment 1. The Microenvironment 1. Key competitors Footwear market is a competitive marketplace because of globalization. There are 3,238 retails providing large number of appealing shoes to customers in Australia and there are 48 sheepskin retails among them (Yellow Pages Australia, 2009). Barack (2008) recognizes that in the present environment it is a difficult task for retailing to maintain the same revenue as before. Other famous brands like Chukka boots and Rocky are the direct competitors to UGG (Wikipedia, 2009). IBISWorld Pty Ltd (2009) asserts that Ascendia Retail Pty Limited is the top indirect competitor to UGG because it holds 16% of the Australian market. Followed by that,......

...emergence of the toning footwear market. Coupled with Sketchers brand tripling its share to 17%, Nike lost over 7% of its market leading 31% share (Townsend, 2010). According to 2009 numbers, the US footwear manufacturing industry is on the steady decline, projected to decrease at an average of 5.2% annually. Coupled with the surprising fact that over 90% of footwear sold in the US is sourced from foreign manufacturers, the industry truly has “one foot in the grave” (IBIS, 2010). With increased competition and rising prices in the U.S., it comes as no surprise that both Nike and Adidas have moved overseas in search of both market growth opportunities and lower production costs. [pic] Listed above are 2009 figures, courtesy of IBISWorld, that depict the steady decline of the US athletic footwear manufacturing industry. This increased competition has also positioned the two companies to compete in an area traditionally dominated by Adidas: soccer. As the 2010 South Africa World Cup sponsor, Adidas has enjoyed a firm grasp of the market. However Nike has made a push in the segment, even making an attempt to sponsor the German national team during the 2010 World Cup. However Adidas CEO Herbert Hainer immediately doubled their existing offer with the Germans, whom they had sponsored since 1954, stating that “soccer is, of course, the heart and soul of our company” (Townsend/Holger, 2010). 2.

...section we shall discuss the economic concepts which will be used for the economic analysis in the next section of this paper. The first concept is the demand and supply. With this concept, key factors which affects demand and supply are determined. Furthermore, the elasticity concept will also be used in order to determine if the newspaper is elastic or inelastic. Lastly, will be the efficiency and equity concept. With this concept, the efficiency of the newspaper market will be previewed. 4 3.0 3.1 Economic Analysis Demand and Supply The two major revenue channels for newspaper publishers are advertising spending and newspaper circulation, according to Ibisworld (2014). In Australia, these channels have varied in demand determinants where advertising spending is dependable to the economic situations (Ibisworld 2014). The selling prices, development of competing media platforms, real household discretionary income and population are the key determinants of demand for newspaper sales and advertising space. These factors affects the newspaper industry to lean more into the digitalisation and the upbringing development changes in technology.

...compared to premillennial habits (McCrindle Social Research 2013). This can be attributed to the increased media exposure to male specific lifestyle magazines and shows (IBISWORLD 2013). Not only are Australian males become more image conscious they are also recognizing the importance of maintaining healthy lifestyles (Euromonitor 2013). Australian men can be demographically profiled by generation, Baby Boomers being aged roughly 47-65, Generation X aged early 30’s to mid-40’s, Generation Y born between 1981 and 1994 and Generation Z those born between 1995-2009 (Holroyd 2011). Over the next five years the population of Australians over 50 is expected to grow to 8.5 million people, making up 32% of Australia’s total population (Australian Bureau of Statistics 2013). The baby boomer age cohort will therefore represent a market of 4 million Australian males (IBISWORLD 2013). This presents them as a key target demographic for Bulldog Natural Skincare. Overlook of Major Trends: Australia’s ageing population presents an opportunity to increase the range of new cosmetics and personal care products specifically designed for the ageing population, including rejuvenating, anti-ageing, image enhancing, and health-maintenance products which could potentially stimulate growth within the cosmetic industry (IBISWORLD 2013, Euromonitor 2013). Anti-ageing and similar products will be directly targeted at Australian men in order to capitalize on their desire to retain a youthful......

As the economy begins to pick itself up again, we will learn to what extent the addition of new brands will succeed as it will largely depend on how and if the companies are able to capitalize off the new additions by taking sales away from other companies and cannibalizing their competitors.

...a projected growth of -0.1% until 2019. Meaning this industry is in the decline phase. This is the case, despite a project GDP growth of 2.5% per year in the next 5 years. (IBISWorld, 2014) Online Jewelry Sales (NAICS: OD5099) Agents in this industry sell fine jewelry, specialty jewelry, custom jewelry, artificial jewelry, and watches over the Internet. In 2014, revenue for the online jewelry industry reached $4.7 billion, annual growth for the past 5 years was 8.3%, and profits hit $298.6 million. The online jewelry sales industry is thus in the growth stage. According to an IBISWorld specialized US industry report, “the Online Jewelry and Watch Sales industry is expected to grow more slowly compared with the past five years. Nonetheless, it will still outpace the growth of brick-and-mortar stores”(IBISWorld, 2015) . Jewelry Wholesaling (NAICS: 42394) Operators in this industry wholesale fine jewelry, custom jewelry, watches, precious metals and metal flatware.

...increase in failed businesses (IBISWorld). After 2011 it’s percentage started to increase, as ADP better managed its assets to gain more earnings. The next ratio analysis to evaluate financial health is long-term debt to equity. Finding the long-term debt to equity ratio is important as it indicates the leverage of the firm. If the ratio is high than it is more risky which implies that there are more liabilities and less equity. As shown below, in a five-year span, the long-term debt to equity line graph looks the opposite of the one above. From 2010 to 2011 there is an increase in the ratio, which as mentioned before, there was an increase in failed businesses, causing the long-term debt to equity ratio to rise and become more risky. Fortunately, the risk decreased as ADP increased their clientele and client retention. The last ratio analysis is equally as important as the last two, as it is shows how much revenue ADP Inc. has made. The total asset turnover line graph also shows a trend of the past five years. The total asset turnover line graph is very similar to that of the return on assets line graph, however, with much higher percentages. It, as well shows how past events affected it from 2010 to 2011. From then on it has increasingly become more profitable. Automatic Data Processing, Inc. has been increasing their worldwide client revenue retention rate and continues to be successful because of the large market that it provides its services to (IBISWorld). ......
