Macro Environment Analysis

The economy is one of the external factors that would affect mostly industries and businesses. These factors incorporate taxation, interest rate, inflation, exchange rate, and GDP. These factors impact not only behaviour of customers, but also the behaviour of companies. For example, the strong NZ dollar makes the export goods less imperative yet makes import goods more affordable to local consumers. The global financial crisis has affected New Zealand economy although New Zealand and Australia are thought to escape relatively well and have 2 to 3 percent growth in the near future. In the online equipment brokerage sector, the low interest rate could have a positive effect as the lower rate makes the asset investment more attractive. Moreover, the tax reduction for both individual and business may increase the revenue of the industry in the future.

Consumers like novel technology and most of them have become tech savvy. Internet, mobile phone, video games, and HD TVs are parts of everybody’s everyday life. For many products and services, technology can reduce expenses, escalate quality and productivity, and lead to innovation. Advances in technology will ultimately produce benefit for both consumers and the company offering the products and services. In some industry, technological factors are imperative for generating competitive advantages and maintain market position.

M-Commerce has lot of potential

New Zealand is wealthy nation where consumers have already been using cards for a long time and the cards market has reached its height in terms of volume, with new innovations and technology the expectations of consumers has reached to an undiscovered level .
