Porter’s analyse assist marketer to distinction an aggressive environment. Affective five forces of ambitious position ideal analyse and assess the competitive position and strength to the organization.

Compititive Rivals

“Competitive rivals are competitors within an industry”.

1. Rivals can be harmful for MHCCH due to aggressive environment in Singapore.

2. More hotels entered into market, means increase in competitors so MHCCH have to updated about market research and consumer needs compare with competitors services and pricing which they are providing and than if necessary innovate new services to compete the cut throat competitive environment.

New Entrant

Singapore a highly famous country for its hospitality and a place of tourist attraction all over the world. Singapore hotel industry a busiest enterprise in these days.dew to increase in tourist travel towards Singapore from few decades. Many new competitors may wants to enter in market for business and if MHCCH don’t have much key technologies and competitive strategies than other competitor can harm MHCCH market or position and can decrease the growth level.

Subsitute Product

MHCCH is a hotel and operating within an aggressive and competitive environment .many competitors can introduced the same services and facilities on low price by outsourcing. It is important to consider but the most important thing to consider what kinds of facilities and services people wants according to new market trend. Market research has to be updated. What other’s competitors are providing? And then provide same services on less price and high quality to increase the profitability of the hotel .there may be a risk involve in decision making process.

Byer’s Power

Buyer power divided into two categories

2. Singapore hotel industry.

3. A large booking of rooms could be a buyer power.

4. Extreme price awareness of customers.

The term ‘suppliers’ elaborating all sources for injunction that should be in an order to afford services.

1. For example MHCCH have only few suppliers in a market rather than a burst source of supply.

2. Switching cost to change a supplier could be high.

Conclusion

In light of my above research I have come to conclusions which are that “MHCCH” have to consider the main marketing strategies, due to increase in occupancy level in Singapore hotels. MHCCH need sustainable position through strong marketing strategies, planning and extend the hotel at global level and develop more rooms availability and need to stabilized a good relation with their customers, suppliers and the most important competitors. Improve research and development departments by recruiting intelligent staff and give them comprehensive training and knowledge about their relevant fields to tackle modern environmental needs. Company have to develop the hotel at local and international level and get benefits from new recruiting partner with 5 years experience in marketing fast consumer’s goods. My suggestion for hotel is to expand the business external property by investing immense amount of sources on site like (restaurant and bar). Except this oppertunity and get continue growth instead of sell this hotel.
