Natural Environment

One of the first retailers to embrace the idea of “green” marketing.

Societal Environment

Economic

With quarterly losses in 2006, things still looked impressive for Wal-Mart stores as international growth increased.

Rising fuel prices and terrorist attacks have cut into profits for the global giant.

Global Markets continue to combine into the U.S. domestic market, giving Wal-Mart a variety of options to carry out overseas activities.

Technological

c. Political-Legal

  • Increasing tension between employees and Wal-Marts low pay and stingy benefits has created an uproar among former employees.

  • In 2003, raids on stores around the country found illegal immigrants working in their factories and stores.

  • Outsourcing has also been a key factor of concern between employees and customers in the U.S.

  • Customers were found to no longer pleased with the way Wal-Mart was conducting their business abroad and in the U.S.

    d. Sociocultural

  • Geared towards the low-income customer.

    3. Task Environment (Industry Analysis)

  • Wal-Mart has significant influence over its suppliers, therefore they are ready to supply.

  • Threat of substitutes is high and entry barriers are high

  • With companies such as Target, Costco, and other retail giants nipping at their heels, the rivalry in such a business is tough at the top.

  • Specialty companies are cutting into Wal-Marts share of profits by providing specialized products, such as companies like Burlington Coat Factory and Bass Shoes.

  • Bargaining power of buyers is high.

  • Relative power of other stakeholders is medium: Many groups and local communities have begun to oppose the groups entry into markets where they have not been. Many organizations have been active promoting fair labor and union laws for the companies employees.
