Name a product or a company that you are familiar with. Discuss how environmental forces (social, economic, technological, competitive, and regulatory) will impact that product/company over the next five years.



The name of the product is Coke and this is a Pestel Analysis.

PESTEL is short for Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Environmental, and Legal. All representing factors that can and will impact the operations of any business.


Coca-Cola is a global company with is in the business of providing refreshments to its customers by the sale of Soda or soft drinks. Because of the nature of the product, the industry in which they play is heavily regulated and they must use the best technology in order to stay relevant, competitive, and dominant in the market.  


Political factors

One of the regulators to whom Coca-cola must dance to its tune is the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) a Federal Agency of the Department of Health and Human Services in the US. All Coca-cola product must meet their requirements as stipulated by law. If the laws enforced by FDA changes it could adversely affect the distribution, taxes, accounting, and all other operations of Coca-Cola.  


Economical factors

Some economic factors that may affect a business like Coca-cola are:

Interest rates, exchange rates, recession, Inflation, Taxes, Demand / Supply.

One critical factor in this group which the company must be on the lookout for always is changes in taste and demand. Consumers are making a shift globally towards more healthy alternatives to soda. This is because, as the world becomes more sedentary due to shifts in global economic patterns as induced by the pandemic, risk factors relating to health care on the increase. Hence consumers want to ensure that they cut down on foods and beverages that increase their predisposition to conditions such as obesity, cancer, high blood pressure, etc.

To stay relevant and competitive, the company has to seek out healthy drinks that speak to all the various localities (which are over 200 countries).

Social factors

Examples of social factors that can affect a business are:

e-commerce adaptation, purchasing habits, ease of adoption of technology, changes in customer service expectation, the education level of consumers.

The purchasing habit for Coca-cola is changing in lots of countries. People are becoming more predisposed to buying products online. How will that affect the demand for the company's products? Will it increase as online food orders increase? can the company position itself to take advantage of the trend? If yes, then it is making taking advantage of its changing social environment.

Technological factors

Adoption of best-in-class machinery is one of the strategies that has enabled Coca-Cola to achieve higher quality and quantity of its products. Speed of delivery, processes that are optimized for the lowest costs and highest outputs are now being made possible with advances in technology. Coca-cola is taking advantage of technology especially in regions such as Europe.  

Legal factors

Product liability, third-party liability, employer-employee (labor) relations, compliance, and regulatory factors are all within the scope of Coca-Cola's legal universe.  Constantly managing this space of its operations will keep it from experiencing avoidable erosion of its bottom line and brand equity.

Environmental factors

Companies no longer compete on the basis of profitability alone. Global companies are the target of onslaughts from those who campaign against the degradation of the environment. One way they do so is to discourage the consumption of the goods of a company whose activities are harming the environment.

So companies all over the world are not competing based on the triple bottom line criteria: People, Planet, Profit.

This answers the questions whether

  1. Coca-cola is in compliance with international best practices as far as labor law is concerned;
  2. How does the company handle its effluents and wastes? is it just discharging them into the earth without treatment? or is it creatively converting them into economic products? how responsible is the company socially?
  3. then of course there is the issue of keeping the books in the black


In a perfectly competitive market, the process of entry and exit will end when (i) accounting profits are zero. (ii) economic profits are zero. (iii) price equals minimum marginal cost. (iv) price equals minimum average total cost.



 (ii) economic profits are zero


A perfect competition is characterised by many buyers and sellers of homogenous goods and services. Market prices are set by the forces of demand and supply. There are no barriers to entry or exit of firms into the industry.

In the long run, firms earn zero economic profit. If in the short run firms are earning economic profit, in the long run firms would enter into the industry. This would drive economic profit to zero.

Also, if in the short run, firms are earning economic loss, in the long run, firms would exit the industry until economic profit falls to zero.

A Swiss watch company advertises its history of superior craftsmanship. The company thinks that this would​ a. ​Make the demand for the product less elastic b. ​Make the customers less sensitive to the price c. ​Assist them with differentiating their product d. ​All of the above



The correct answer is letter "B": ​Make the customers less sensitive to the price.


There are several reasons that could make products become elastic or inelastic. Reputation typically makes goods and services be considered inelastic. These types of products do not see a change in their quantity demanded in front of changes in price.

Thus, if a Swiss watch company promotes their history of superior craftsmanship is attempting to aware consumers about its watch quality and reputation so if they decide to increase prices consumers will be less sensitive to the change.
