Price rises will be fueled by growing construction, recreational events and government consumption
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2014
Portable toilet rentals have a buyer power score of 3.0 out of 5. According to IBISWorld procurement analyst Ian Buchanan, “this score represents strengthened buying power stemming from a low market share concentration and a lack of specialization required of this service.” At the same time, buyer power is slightly limited by the lack of practical substitutes available to buyers.
Market share concentration is low, which means that there is a high level of competition among vendors of portable toilet rental. Heightened competition is beneficial to buyers because it pressures suppliers to offer reduced pricing to avoid being undercut by competitors. However, the majority of providers are small-scale companies with a narrow area of operations. “As a result, buyers that are located in regions with higher concentrations of suppliers will experience the full benefits of low market share concentration,” says Buchanan. Buyers also benefit from the lack of customization that goes into portable toilet rental. Products are mostly homogenous across suppliers, although the number and quality of services offered will vary from vendor to vendor. The low level of specialization in the market allows buyers to easily find suppliers that offer a product that meets their requirements. Suppliers, consequently, have a significant incentive to offer flexible pricing, resulting in strengthened buying power.
However, buying power is weakened by the lack of practical alternatives to renting a portable toilet. Because portable restrooms are costly and require extensive maintenance and cleaning, purchasing is typically an unrealistic solution for many buyers. Armed with the knowledge that buyers do not have other options, suppliers can leverage prices in their favor, diminishing buying power. The largest suppliers in the market are Republic Services, United Site Services and Waste Management.
