Competitive Landscape Analysis: How does it help shape markets to your advantage?

Mar 24, 2021

Conducting a competitive landscape analysis may seem like an exhaustive process. Mainly because of the time required to gather market data, share insights, and act upon those insights by integrating them into your business strategy. However, on the flip side, getting into your competitor’s head can help you gauge the competitive landscape by offering you a holistic yet impactful overview of the market.

No company is an island- this particularly holds true in today’s competitive markets. And particularly so in the current business environment. Businesses that perceive the competitive landscape as it is are likely to succeed in the future and gain an edge when compared to their peers. Infiniti’s approach to competitive landscape analysis focuses on analyzing the competitive scenario through an in-depth analysis of your competitors’ strategies, business processes, and the market in general. We adopt a holistic approach that moves beyond the usual market trends analysis and competitor mapping. Evidently, the rewards of adopting such an approach are huge- fewer surprises from your competitors and enhanced ability to tap into new opportunities to shape markets to your advantage.

Given the current business scenario and the complexities of making a move, it isn’t easy to analyze the competitive landscape mostly because every competitor and their decision-makers are not alike. Irrespective of the market in which they operate, every business leader has different assets, resources, and market positions to leverage, safeguard and build upon. This implies that businesses within the same market might have to adopt different strategies to thrive in the long-run. What’s more, even a competitor with similar service or product offerings might have to create unique strategies to achieve the goals that their decision-makers wish to achieve. So if you want to anticipate rather than react to your competitors’ strategic moves, you must analyze the competitive landscape at two different levels- market-level and organization-level.
