Porter's Analysis on Onions

Supplier Power

  • Large vegetable processors engage in contract farming and ensure steady supply
  • Premiums/discounts are set based on the yield rates
  • Farmers have an upper hand in negotiations with smaller processors
  • These small processors are prone to higher price fluctuation risk

Barriers to New Entrants

  • High initial capital investment for processing facilities with large production capacities
  • Access to raw materials is a major challenge
  • Fluctuating margins, due to dependency on weather conditions and no supply guarantee
  • Higher cost of raw materials compared to competing larger companies

Intensity of Rivalry

  • High competition prevails among few established players in developed markets
  • Presence of large number of small-scale players in developing countries dilutes the intensity of rivalry
  • Cost of production largely depends on raw material prices and large processors minimize price fluctuation through contract farming

Threat of Substitutes

  • Processed vegetables do not face any threat from substitutes

Buyer Power

  • Buyers of processed vegetables hold a moderate negotiation power
  • Large food chains, who engage in long-term contracts, hold a higher bargaining power
  • Other buyers, such as infant food, juice, and purees, engage in contract processing of vegetables
