    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
