Detailed PESTLE Analysis of Ricoh

Political

1. Influence of politics in different countries: As Ricoh has its presence in 200 countries worldwide, it has to deal with varying political outlook in every country. Having an international presence has its own advantages in terms of having a greater market etc. but it also leads to an exposure to an influence of political unrest in any part of the world. The company also has to deal with policy changes that a new government brings in which may change the political, trade and manufacturing scenario in any country.

Economic

Social

1. Declining demand for 2D printing and DSLR cameras in global markets: The consumer behaviour has changed post digitisation and introduction of Smart phones since 2011. The demand for 2D printing goes on declining in Developed Markets as the focus is now on digital footprint. Whereas, the DSLR cameras which were once considered fashionable are now treated as out dated and primitive in front of the smart phones. Hence, Pentax is suffering. Thus, these changing social trends have an immense impact on the sales at Ricoh and the company looks forward to innovation to keep itself in the market.

2. Dynamic Consumer trends in various Markets: Being a global company, Ricoh has to keep a regular check on the trends that are happening in the market. Be it buying pattern changes or increase in the disposable income of a country. The company has to be regularly in touch with the changing and evolving consumer trends.
