A Five Forces analysis can help companies assess industry attractiveness, how trends will affect industry competition, which industries a company should compete in—and how companies can position themselves for success.

Five Forces Analysis is a strategic tool designed to give a global overview, rather than a detailed business analysis technique. It helps review the strengths of a market position, based on five key forces. Thus, Five Forces works best when looking at an entire market sector, rather than your own business and a few competitors.

The Five Forces are: Threat of new market player, threat of substitute products, power of customers, power of suppliers, industry rivalry which determine the competitive intensity and attractiveness of a market.
