Porter’s Five Forces Analysis on Synthetic Vitamins Industry

The suppliers have better negotiation power, as they are fragmented players for most of the vitamins and volumes are at risk due to increased demand. The intensity of rivalry is medium to high in the vitamin industry, based on the type of vitamin and their grades.

Supplier Power

  • The suppliers have higher negotiation power than buyers, as the market supply is tight and demand is high

  • The suppliers are fragmented and volumes are smaller from each buyer

Barriers to New Entrants

  • Vitamin factories require technology, capital and equipment. History of presence is well noted here and hence, the barriers to new entrants are high

Intensity of Rivalry

  • Vitamin is mainly used in human consumption and animal feed. The supply of vitamin is generally stable. However, trends and political terms might influence the prices

  • The rivalry in the vitamin industry is low to medium, as there are no alternate substitutes

Threat of Substitutes

  • Vitamins are essential to human and animal health and cannot be replaced by anything else

  • There is no threat for vitamins in the near future

Buyer Power

  • The buyers of vitamins are the food, pharmaceutical companies, and animal feed companies

  • All these three categories have been hugely impacted by COVID-19 and has seen increased production
