The oral hygiene industry in Singapore is quite big because it is one of the developed country where majority of the population is aware about their health concerns. Therefore, sales of the oral hygiene product are also good in this country. The total market size is near about 4.6 billion where Colgate has the maximum market share of 28% (Forbes.com 2016). The oral hygiene product market is growing with a rate of 4% annually.

Dividing the market into segments helped the business to address the more specific market needs, media, pricing patterns and decision making in each of the different market segments. Oral hygiene is the basic treatment that is used by every household. Therefore market Segmentation for  the product will be wide that eliminates the geographic and behavioural segmentation however demographic segmentation like occupation, socio economic group and psychographic segmentation like personality and lifestyle will be relevant. Entrepreneur segmented the market by the age of users (Mollick 2013).

Targeted market will be population between age 20 to 60 in Singapore areas approximately 3.5 million which is the largest population in the country. For future, there is plan for gaining more market share by selling the product in more than one country (Berry 2005).

Mission and vision statement

Buyer of oral hygiene product in Singapore market is aware about their product benefit and they understand the need of their hygiene. In such case, it is very important to understand the market and provide the best product to the customer. The customer behaviour is associated with the product quality and benefit whereas it is not highly influenced by the price (Pollack, Rutherford and Nagy 2012).

Threats of substitutes – Threat of substitute is low in this market. Magic tooth cleaner has an innovative idea, with high quality and technology which makes it a user-friendly product.  Magic tooth cleaner also creates value for everyday life for their consumer by providing benefit to their health.

Threats of New Entrants – Threat of new entrant is medium. Due to its innovative technology product of Magic tooth cleaner will have trademark and support of intellectual property right. This will provide barrier to the new entrants with same kind of product however, threat of different product with similar benefit is always there (Entrepreneurship.org 2016).

Rivalry among existing firms - Rivalry among existing firms is also considered as low in the market because it will operate in market segment where already many company exist with their existing brand.

Bargaining power of suppliers - Bargaining power of suppliers is high. The technological resources of the company are very limited therefore; company has to depend on very few suppliers that increase their bargaining power.

Bargaining power of buyers - Bargaining power of buyers is high. Due to lot of competition in the market buyer will have lot of option for their oral care that increases their bargaining power however, the uniqueness of the product will also control the market and the buyer behaviour (Keating, Geiger and McLoughlin 2014).

The customers may have different needs for different demographic region. Therefore, market segmentation comes in as important factors.  As magic tooth cleaner is suitable for every household, oral hygiene is recognised as a must for all human. It is also one of the Maslow’s basic needs. Therefore, when entrepreneur consider market segmentation for this area, age is consider main factor. Too young age may need supervision; in addition, old age may not want to opt for new technology invention (Söderblom et al. 2015). Entrepreneur decided Age 20 to 60 has been chosen to segment in Singapore area. Marketing effort and strategies will zoom into particular age group. The sale target for 1st year of the production will be at least 40% of consumer age within 20 to 60 around Singapore area (Entrepreneurship.org 2016).

Aims and objective

Value proposition statement - “Oral hygiene is necessity for every household and it is a norm. We promote every household for hygienic tooth care; minimize time consuming for cleaning of the sink with better technology, cost saving and low maintenance after each usage as it is disposable.”  

Unique value proposition will be first-ever product among oral hygiene, Time saving for cleaning up the sink every morning for housewives, for hospitals, lower cross infection caused by body fluid bore disease such as AIDS, Hep-B etc.

The most crucial part is determining the competitor accurately. Tactics and strategy will be created according to the competitor’s business nature. Someone sells a product that is different from magic tooth cleaner does not mean that they are not a competitor. As long as it can be substitutable, they are competitor. As magic cleaner is first of that kind in the market, toothpaste industries are classified as competitors because they also provide oral care benefits (Mullins 2012).

Industry and market analysis

The sale potential of the “magic tooth cleaner” will stay in market worthwhile. It is not just for short term. It has opportunity on long-term growth rather than just a trend, as it is an oral care, which is necessary for every household.

The wholesaler and retailer will be set in the channel distribution system who will distribute the product to the customers.

The market of the oral hygiene product in the Singapore market is growing in a 4% rate annually where the market leaders are growing below the rate of the industry. Therefore, it can be said that there is a moderate growth potential in the market for a normal brand. However if the new product is associated with the good features then it can grow beyond the market growth (Klotz et al. 2014).

6.1 Making, assembling and outsourcing

From there on, after the business is stable, the machines and equipments will be upgraded for newer and latest models. Entrepreneur will carry out negotiating the deal with suppliers for the raw materials. Items that need to be outsourced or make will be decided after ACCA graduate professional accountant’s advice. It will be decided most cost effective production for beginning. The general rule is that entrepreneur should buy little and in expensive machines for new venture to avoid wastage on re-equipment for production (Au et al. 2013).
