Oceans cover approximately 75% of Earth 's surface and are vital to this planet and the people who inhabit it. Oceans provide food, natural resources, and recreation for nearly everyone in this world.

These organizations also have established relationships with retailers and suppliers and hold a certain amount of leverage within the industry. New company products are viewed as fads and are short lived. Small companies cannot compete in store with the bigger companies for shelf space. To sell products in department stores or specialty store, the product must have a favorable quality image. New firms will have trouble entring the CFT industry due to the high learning curve. Avon would be able to produce products in the same product line for a lot less due to their acquired expertise and experience they have gained by being in the business for over a century. New entrants will have a hard time competing with the prices, advertising, loyalty of customers, and the years of experience that firms like Avon have acquired over the years. Incumbent firms may not pay much attention to a new entry until it survives for a period of time or if they launch an innovative product that needs to be copied under the larger name. As for substitute products, women might switch to different brands of cosmetics but it is doubtful that a replacement short of surgery will substitute cosmetics from a different industry. The only substitute products are similar products from another company within the CFT industry. Because there are no true substitute products from a different industry the threat of substitutes is very weak.
