Porter’s Five Forces Analysis for the Global Smart Beacon Market:

1.  Bargaining Power of Suppliers: In the case of smart beacons, currently there are large number of suppliers offering beacon’s primary components such as battery, central processing unit (CPU), and radio. Most of the developed countries rely on the import of such components from other countries including China and other Southeast Asian countries. Given the constrain on domestic supply of beacon components, global suppliers currently have substantial bargaining power in the market.

Thus, the bargaining power of the suppliers is moderate.

2.  Bargaining Power of Buyers: The market is fragmented with few players and no major player. Switching cost of beacons is low as customers have more power to negotiate for lower prices and better deals. With increasing buyers for beacons in several industry verticals, bargaining power of buyers is more in current scenario.

Thus, the bargaining power of the buyers is high.

3.  Threat of New Entrants: Beacons are impacted by government rules and regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the United States. Low initial investment and demand for innovative proximity marketing technologies, on the other hand, are boosting start-up growth.

Thus, the threat of the new entrants is moderate.

4.  Threat of Substitutes: Smart beacons provide amazing capabilities and value when compared to alternatives such as Global Positioning System (GPS) or Near Field Communication (NFC) technologies. NFC and GPS, as alternatives to proximal marketing, have drawbacks such as limited range and high cost of technology. Smart beacons are a far more affordable and practical instrument for nearby marketing.

Thus, the threat of substitutes is low.

5.  Competitive Rivalry in the Market: The smart beacon market is highly fragmented, with many small firms. Few large companies, on the other hand, are aggressively investing in beacon technology offering better hardware, support, and expertise than their cheaper counterparts.

Therefore, the competitive rivalry in the market is moderate.
