Industry analysis
Porter’s five forces
Bargaining power of suppliers-it is a force that helps in analysing the business strategy.
Qantas has strong position in its supplier due to its growth and reputation in the aircraft
industries. Qantas works with various suppliers in order to preserve the profit margin
(Seufert, 2014). Suppliers has bargaining power in terms of various assess such as fuel and
construction.
Bargaining power of buyers- In the airlines industry, buyers are either business professionals
or individuals belong to middle class. Buying power is high in Qantas airways as customers
can switch to other airways that are providing best services in low cost (Dobbs, 2014). In the
current scenario, passengers have different options such as they can buy the tickets from
websites or from the travelling agent. In this way, it has created the low cost strategy to
increase its customer base.
Competitive rivalry- Qantas is said to be the market leader in Australia but there are some
competitors who put threat to Qantas. From the annual report of the company 2009, it is
founded that Qantas is operating Jet Star in order to compete with the Virgin Blue, a low fare
airline. By taking its competitors in the market, it focuses on differentiation strategy to deal
with its competitors (Qantas Airways, 2016).
Threat of substitutes- The major substitutes of airlines are car, trains, and buses. However, the
airline industry provides the various benefits such as it takes less time of customers to reach
on the location as well comfortable journey is taken by the passengers. Low cost leadership
strategy as well as differentiation strategy of Qantas helps it to retain its customer. Therefore,
threat of substitute is less in Qantas.
Threat of new entrant- There are various barriers in the airline industry, as it requires a huge
capital to initiate the airline business. Besides this, there is threat of competition in the
market. Therefore, Qantas can adopt alliance strategy so that it becomes difficult for new
entrants to come in the aviation industry.
