Another reason why I agree with their decision to move is that at the moment they are not getting as much profit as they forecasted so clearly operating in a Niche market is not working so it makes sense to move into a mass market and increase their sales. It could be argued that it is not a good idea for Shearings to try and appeal to a mass market and move out of the niche market. This is because they were getting a steady profit operating in a niche market so it is a bit of risk moving into a market they are unfamiliar with which could be a huge failure because they are spending lots of money trying to make it work like the £2 million on advertising and the further £35 million they spent on expanding to accommodate the new customers and if it doesn’t work they are left with a huge cash outflow and no where near enough inflows to cover it. Another reason why I would disagree with their decison is that in mass market are huge competitor like Thomas Cook, which could be more appealing to customers, as it is a relatively known name or because they may be able to offer lower prices, this would lead ton o increase in income and would lead to several problems. Overall I think the decison depends on whether the move is affordable as at

Price discrimination also shows signs of oligopolistic firm , as prices are set for different genders, age, time, season, due to lack of competition and choice.
However, future threats always have the potential to arise. Competitive Rivalry – Unless the popularity of the Little Wonder completely dwarfs other products in it's class then competitive rivalry should remain small. This would change if the Little Wonder starts to greatly impact competitor's bottom lines and they find a way to begin to manufacturer new and improved mixers themselves at a lower cost.

Competitors likely would not want to risk losing current sales by adding features which would raise their prices.

Moreover, the goods from the outsourcings may not be as efficient as the goods that are made within the country. The consumers would choose the goods through the brand names or the prices; however, sometimes the consumers would choose goods by where they are made. Therefore, it is very significant to know where the goods are manufactured because it will increase the satisfaction of consumers since they are very demanding on the quality of goods. In addition, as the consumption of the goods decrease, the companies will earn less revenue that decreases the investment that they will spend for outsourcings. Thus, consumer demand has a big impact on outsourcings since people do not want to spend money on the outsourcings’ goods which make the companies earn less profits; on the other hand, the outcome will reduce the spending on
The decline has cause many smaller companies to push their company less and not worry of about effectiveness and stock prices because there is less push from takeovers. This can be bad for investors.
