Global Top 6 Agriculture Equipment Manufacturers - Strategic Factor Analysis Summary (SFAS) Framework Analysis - 2016 - John Deere, CNH, AGCO, CLAAS, SAME Deutz-Fahr, Kubota

The report provides strategic insights into the overarching Strategic Positioning and degree of Environmental Responsiveness of the Global Top 6 Agriculture Equipment Manufacturers through a Strategic Factor Analysis Summary (SFAS) framework analysis; also referred to as Quantitative SWOT Analysis, against the backdrop of an evolving industry landscape & shifting global dynamics. The Global Agriculture Equipment market is driven by robust fundamentals & strong, long-term demand & growth drivers linked directly to a rapidly growing global population. The global agricultural output is required to double itself by 2050 as against the present level, in order, to match the rate of global population growth, as per projections, amid diminishing natural resources, thus, highlighting & underscoring the imminent & urgent need for tremendously enhancing efficiency & productivity through precision farming.

The current & near term view of the industry is, however, grim with continued, significant pressures on farm incomes & profitability being the dominating theme emanating from an altered supply side economics with record crop production for 2014 across key geographic regions impacting crop prices, farm incomes & agriculture machinery sales across industry OEMs directly & significantly. Additionally, the plummeting of global crude oil prices since late 2014 have severely impacted the demand for bio-fuels & the global bio-fuel production value chain, based on agricultural feedstock based sources, especially, corn & soyabean which had witnessed a significant increase in planting acreage across key producing regions over the recent years, thereby, further compounding an already complex & difficult scenario. The multitude of pressures on top line growth have necessitated & rendered competitiveness as crucial to protecting profitability across industry OEMs which have been working towards optimizing & aligning their cost base & industrial footprint in-line with emerging demand scenario.

The report provides an overall SFAS score on each of the Top 6 Agriculture Equipment manufacturers based on an analysis of each company's strategic positioning & the degree of responsiveness to its internal & external environment respectively, thereby, making it especially useful for competitive & comparative analysis. The framework generates an insightful snapshot of the prevailing, overall strategic equation for each company by identifying, weighing, prioritizing & ranking strategic factors present in the internal & external environment through an Internal Factor Analysis Summary (IFAS) matrix followed by an External Factor Analysis Summary (EFAS) matrix based on their strategic significance & potential degree of impact along-with each respective company's corresponding degree of responsiveness to those factors.

The framework, thus, assesses the strategic positioning & the degree of responsiveness of each company towards the present as well as emerging market & industry dynamics to be able to harness potential growth opportunities effectively by leveraging its structural & core strengths while negating threats simultaneously.

SFAS, as a framework, thus, scores over the traditional SWOT analysis framework, in terms, of its ability to quantify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities & threats respectively based on the potential degree of effect of each strategic factor being analyzed and the company's commensurate degree of responsiveness to that, thereby, making it much more effective for competitive assessment & analysis and from a strategic planning standpoint with the creation of a quantitative strategic snapshot on each of the companies.
