The acquisition followed Amazon’s entry into online food retailing with Amazon Fresh. The shares of Kroger, the biggest supermarket chain in the United States, fell by 11% on news of the deal.How might Kroger use the competitor analysis framework outlined in Figure 4.4 to predict Amazon’s competitive strategy in the US grocery market?Disc 2. By 2018, the online travel agency industry had consolidated around two leaders: Expedia (which had acquired Travelocity, Lastminute.com, Hotels.com, Trivago, and Orbitz) and Priceline (which owned booking.com, Kayak, Rentalcars.com, and OpenTable). These two market leaders competed with numerous smaller online travel agents (e.g., TripAdvisor, Travelzoo, Skyscanner, Ctrip), with traditional travel agencies (e.g., Carlson Wagonlit, TUI, American Express—all of which had adopted a “bricks ‘n’ clicks” business model), and with direct online sales by airlines, hotel chains, and car rental companies. Amazon and Google were both potential entrants to the market.
