4.0 Strategic and Market Analysis
4.1 Economic Outlook
This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the contracting cabinet industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations. Currently, the economic market condition in the United States is moderate. The meltdown of the sub prime mortgage market coupled with increasing gas prices has led many people to believe that the US is on the cusp of a double dip economic recession. This slowdown in the economy has also greatly impacted real estate sales, which has halted to historical lows. However, this should only have a modest impact on the Company’s ability to generate revenues.
4.2 Industry Analysis
According the U.S. Economic Census, cabinet installation contractors generated gross revenues of $18 billion dollars. The industry employs 170,000 people and outputs gross annual payrolls of $4.7 billion dollars. This growth is expected to taper off as the demand for new housing construction has continued to wane over the past three years. However, many cabinet contractors have been able to remain in business due to the fact that these businesses generate very high gross margins from their installation services coupled with moderate gross margins from the sales of cabinets.
4.3 Customer Profile
The Company anticipates that a majority of its clients will be building owners and property management firms contracting on behalf of building owners. Management expects that the Cabinet Contractor’s client base will consist of commercial, industrial, and residential clientele. However, Management anticipates that its largest client base will come from the residential arena. As time progresses, the Company may engage more complicated industrial and high-end commercial and industrial cabinet installations that require specialized materials and specialized skills from carpenters and cabinet installation staff.
4.4 Competitive Analysis
This is one of the sections of the business plan that you must write completely on your own. The key to writing a strong competitive analysis is that you do your research on the local competition. Find out who your competitors are by searching online directories and searching in your local Yellow Pages. If there are a number of competitors in the same industry (meaning that it is not feasible to describe each one) then showcase the number of businesses that compete with you, and why your business will provide customers with service/products that are of better quality or less expensive than your competition.

Mr. Doe intends on using a number of marketing strategies that will allow the Cabinet Contractor to easily homeowners, building owners, and home builders within the target market.
