讲座内容摘要:

We explore retail supply chains in emerging markets in which a manufacturer can reach customers by selling its product through very small independent stores (nanostores) and/or through a supermarket. Nanostores offer consumers the advantage of proximity but supermarkets offer the advantage of bulk buying. We explore the competition between the supermarket and nanostores and examine the manufacturer’s role in shaping the retail market structure for its product through its contracts and through its ability to help nanostores reduce their operations costs. We model and analyze a multi-party supply-chain game in which a manufacturer can sell its product to spatially-distributed, utility-maximizing, price-sensitive consumers through nanostores and a supermarket. Consumers can buy in bulk at the supermarket, optimizing their purchase quantity, and hence visit frequency, in an Economic Order Quantity type approach, or they can purchase from a nanostore (frequently due to store storage-space limitations). We solve for the equilibrium market structure and the associated retail and wholesale prices. Among other results, we find that the presence of a supermarket reduces nanostore prices and thus benefits the consumers if the manufacturer is passive (i.e., exogenous wholesale prices). In contrast, with a strategic manufacturer, the presence of a supermarket results in higher nanostore prices, thus reducing consumer welfare. Also, the manufacturer should sell through both formats if their supply-chain efficiencies are somewhat comparable but should do so in a manner that eliminates competition for the same consumer between the retail formats.
