Competitive Landscape

Mon Ami Co Ltd led writing instruments with the retail value share of 10% in 2014. Although the company was positioned as the leading player in writing instruments, it lost share from 2010 as there are many competitors in the market. The company has provided affordable ball point pens under the Monami 153 brand for many years and people regard the company as having a non-luxury image. As many global companies are threatening the company’s further growth, Mon Ami tries to develop more premium pens such as 153 Fisherman and 153 Respect and raise its brand image amongst the public. It focuses on the various online marketing channels including social media sites such as Facebook to capture consumers’ attention. It also recently opened its official shopping mall sites at the end of 2014 to attract more consumers to purchase its products against those of global companies.
