Strategic Marketing Markets and Strategies l Value Migration Strategic Marketing Markets and Strategies l Value Migration – There are three stages to value migration: l Stage 1: Value inflow stage - value is absorbed from other companies or industries because of a superior business design l Stage 2: Value stability stage - competitive equilibrium with stable market shares and stable profit margins l Stage 3: Value outflow stage - companies lose value to other industry - reduced profit margins - loss of market share - outflow of talent and other resources Strategic Marketing Markets and Strategies Strategic Marketing Markets and Strategies l A Case in Example: – Automobile industry in the US l Stage 1: – Lack of public transport, larger families and rise of the baby boomers, industrialization, gasoline and outlets availability, limited airstrips and air travel, declining recession etc. – Larger cars; size and availability l Stage 2: – GM and Ford providing such value at a massive scale – Highly regulated industry initially then deregulation – Rise in cost of fuel, urbanization, service sector boom, smaller families, rise of baby busters and innovation from Japs. l Stage 3: – Rise in transit and cost of fuel, economy cars, decline in births, etc. industry shakeouts.
