Competitive vendor landscape

The global Scotch whisky market is consolidated with the presence of many well-known international vendors. These vendors compete on the basis of price, quality, innovation, age, authenticity, distribution, and product promotion. Vendor performance in the market may be affected by changing consumer spending patterns. It may also be affected by consumer tastes; regional, national, and local economic conditions; and demographic trends. Changing economic conditions are affecting customers’ living standards and could also affect a vendor's business. Manufacturers have distilleries in Scotland and produce different types of Scotch whisky.

“Intense competition among vendors coupled with rapid technological changes constitutes a significant risk to vendor operations. Therefore, to survive and succeed in a stiff competitive environment, it becomes imperative for vendors in the market to distinguish their product offerings through a clear and unique value proposition,” says Manjunath Reddy, a lead alcoholic beverages research analyst from Technavio.
