Shake-out stage of industry evolution
Shake-out is the second stage of the industry lifecycle. It is the stage at which a new industry emerges. During the shake-out stage, competitors start to realise business opportunities in the emerging industry. The value of the industry also quickly rises.
For example, many people die and suffer because of cigarettes every year. Thus, the UK government decided to launch a campaign to encourage people to quit smoking. Nicorette, one of the leading companies is producing several nicotine products to help people quit smoking. Some of its well-known products include Nicorette patches, Nicolette gums and Nicorette lozenges.
Smokers began to see an easy way to quit smoking. The new industry started to attract brand recognition and brand awareness among its target market during the shake-out stage. Nicorette’s products began to gain popularity among those who wanted to quit smoking or those who wanted to reduce their daily cigarette consumption.
During this period, another company realised the opportunity in this market and decided to enter it by launching nicotine product ranges, including Nic Lite gum and patches. It recently went beyond UK boarder after the UK government introduced non-smoking policy in public places, including pubs and nightclubs. This business threat created a new business opportunity in the industry for Nic Lite to launch a new nicotine-related product called Nic Time.
Nic Time is a whole new way for smokers to “get a cigarette” – an eight-ounce bottle contains a lemon-flavoured drink laced with nicotine, the same amount of nicotine as two cigarettes. Nic Lite was first available at Los Angeles airports for smokers who got uneasy on flights, but now the nicotine soft drinks are available in some convenience stores.
