Years in the making and sweeping in scope, this major work explains how in every industry three major players emerge to dominate the market, with the balance filled by specialist niche players, and how this determines business strategy. In an indispensable guide to predicting trends in mergers, competition and profitability, Jagdish Sheth and Rajendra Sisodia offer crucial insights for businesses large and small. Based on extensive studies of market forces, they show that the vast majority of industries follow a distinct pattern and ultimately fall under the influence of 'the rule of three.' Evidence suggests that three full-line, volume driven competitors eventually emerge to capture between seventy and ninety percent of a given market. Documenting how markets evolve into two complementary sectors, generalists, which cater to a large, mainstream group of customers at both the high and low ends of the market, and any company caught in the middle is likely to be swallowed up or destroyed. Sheth and Sisodia show how most markets resemble a shopping centre with specialty shops anchored by large stores. Drawing wisdom from these markets, THE RULE OF THREE offers counterintuitive insights, which inform suggested strategies for the 'Big 3' players, as well as for mid-sized companies that may want to mount a challenge and for specialists who want to flourish

The Rule of Three, by Jagdish Sheth and Rajendra Sisodia, offers an innovative take on corporate development that could help leaders put their own operations into a new context that improves competitive strategies and boosts market performance. Sheth and Sisodia, consultants and marketing professors, base it on their contention that just three major players ultimately emerge in all markets--such as ExxonMobil, Texaco, and Chevron in petroleum, and Gerber, Beech-Nut, and Heinz in baby foods. These giant "full-line generalists" are eventually surrounded by smaller "specialists" who successfully concentrate on niche products (such as high-end audio gear) or niche markets (like fashions for professional women), along with midsized "ditch-dwellers" who struggle to reach an audience in between (like second-tier airlines that compete with goliaths on price and regionals on service). The authors examine this pattern of market evolution and the "radical disruption" that can occur when technology or regulation changes or a new entry "succeeds in altering the rules" (as Starbucks did by sneaking up on coffee's Big Three). Appendices present helpful examples of the way this has shaken out in various industries. --Howard RothmanAbout the Author:
