COMPETENCE
The firm has a stiff competition in the Indian market. Currently, Nike is the
leading player in the industry.
➢ Multi-Brand Approach
There is a natural limit a brand can achieve given the diverse tastes and
expectations of a highly fragmented consumer market. Thus, a multi-brand
approach will provide the firm with a major competitive advantage and
significant additional commercial opportunities compared to a single brand
strategy. It can leverage the power of its brands in a more precise and
meaningful way, utilizing the combined strengths of each to compete for a higher
percentage of the market, covering a greater number of consumer needs, price
points and demographics.
➢ Broader distribution
Close cooperation with retailers can significantly improve the in-store experience
for the product. Establishing shop-in-shop formats (e.g. with JJB and Dick’s
Sporting Goods) or retail partnerships (e.g. with INTERSPORT) are examples
where the company is leading the industry. Such co operations can be
particularly effective in markets that have become dominated by price and lack
of differentiation.

➢ Cost leadership
The acquisition of Reebok has created significant opportunities to reduce and
optimize costs, through scale benefits, back office consolidation and combined
capital expenditure planning.

PORTER’S GENERIC COMPETITIVE STRATEGY
The DIFFERENTIATION strategy would help the firm in competing in a
competing market place.

The firm has a strong grip only in the basketball and casual wear product line.
Diversification of the products athletics, cricket and hockey would enormously
help the firm in competing in such a market as cricket is the most popular sport
in India. This would be a tough task since Nike is the sponsor of the Indian
national cricket team.

ADIDAS – Strategy in India


Adidas’ strategy in India has been consistent over the past few years. The broad
elements of the strategy are to target the brand to urban youth with our brand
proposition from ‘competition to lifestyle’ using the authentic sports platform and
build and reinforce credibility through relevant brand ambassadors and
grassroots sports marketing programs. Further, it would target principal
consumption centres, namely metros and build significant stand-alone exclusive
store presence in significant locations. The strategy would be to play to our
strengths, i.e. in apparel and mid to high priced footwear.
