Snapdeal Industries IPO - SWOT Analysis

Strengths and Opportunities Weaknesses and Threats
Snapdeal has already created a brand image as a value-for-money platform in Tier 2 cities in India which they can scale up with the capital they raise via the organic growth that they claim to be raising the money for. Their sales, revenues, profits have not shown sustained positive growth - they need to stop being a loss-making, inefficient firm in order to instil confidence in potential investors and gain positive share price movements.
Snapdeal enjoys certain favourable market trends. The DRHP mentions that the value lifestyle retail market in India is set to grow at 15% between 2021-26 - from $88 billion to $175 billion. The shopper base is set to rise from 140-160 million to upto 350 million in the same period. It is an enormous opportunity for an e-commerce platform following an omni-channel model that has such a strong presence among middle income mobile phone owners. Their incapability to sustain their presence in Tier 1 cities means that they will not be entering a foreign high-value market any time soon. Therefore they are completely dependent on the Tier 2 cities market in India. Moreover, over time as the customers in these cities grow richer due to India’s economic growth they might switch to other brands which they may consider to be more “high-value”. At the same time, minor dips in the economy can have a far-reaching impact on its customer base - it is sort of stuck in a catch 22 situation.
It has a strong focus on technology including AI - having the right human and technological capability can help them overcome the current inefficiencies over time. Therefore the product itself is good - has fine UX and also multilingual user support. It is dependent on Google Play store and Apple store for both promotion and existence of its app.

Competitive Analysis: Market Peers

Snapdeal faces stiff competition from major players with strong finances such as Amazon and Flipkart (the latter is seeking a market valuation of $50 billion, several times more than Snapdeal).
