Our approach: The total market map for global market opportunity assessment

Market assessment and situation analysis

  • The CAGE distance framework enables us to assess the cultural, administrative & political, geographical and economic differences between a target market and markets we are already ensconced in. Using CAGE distance analysis, we can assess the accessibility of the global market opportunity.

  • Porter’s 5 Forces allows us to assess the competitive environment that relates to the opportunity in each target market, forming a crucial part of our global market opportunity assessment.

  • PESTLE analysis allows us to assess the trends in the market and thus consider how the market is likely to change or grow, which is vital for identifying global market opportunities.

  • SWOT analysis, based on introspective, internal analysis plus external data, allows us to consider our strengths and weaknesses vis-à-vis the competition, and therefore where we are at a competitive advantage or disadvantage. It also encourages us to assess the level and nature of opportunities and threats within the marketplace, crucial for global market opportunity assessments.

  • Finally, it is often said that marketing is all about segmentation. Success in market entry depends heavily on us identifying the specific group within the market that will be drawn towards our offer. We need to understand not only the total market size but above all the size of our target segment in our global market opportunity assessment.


Case study: Developing supply chain maps to help bring a range of beverages to a new market

Our client, a leading cocoa producer and grinder, was looking to expand its beverages offering (flavoured coffee and chocolate drinks) into more markets. It saw an opportunity in the HoReCa (hotels, restaurants and cafés) sector, but needed more market knowledge of the supply chain and the needs and products being used to successfully reach this audience.
