Detailed SWOT Analysis of Robert Bosch

Strengths

1) Diverse portfolio of products: The strategic objective of Bosch is to deliver solutions for a connected life. In their words, Bosch creates technology that is “Invented for Life”. They intend to deliver this through a portfolio of products divided into four major business sectors: Mobility Solutions, Consumer Goods, Industrial Technology, and Energy and Building Technology. This diversification in the product portfolio provides them with a dual advantage, firstly shield them against unfavourable forces in a specific market and secondly enables them to identify opportunities across various industries.

2) Geographic diversification: Bosch Group comprises of Robert Bosch GmbH and its 440 subsidiaries and regional companies in 60 countries. With the help of its sales and service partners, it operates in around 150 countries across the world. Europe is its biggest market accounting for 53% of its revenue in FY15. This geographic diversification helps them in reducing the business risks and also take advantages of the opportunities in the emerging markets.

3) Consolidated Ownership: 92% of the shares of Robert Bosch GmbH are owned by a charitable foundation named Robert Bosch Stiftung GmbH whereas the majority of voting rights are held by an industrial trust Robert Bosch Industrietreuhand KG, and the remaining shares are owned by the Bosch family and by Robert Bosch GmbH. This consolidation in the share capital provides Bosch group with the entrepreneurial freedom to plan over long term and also to take up significant upfront investments, if needed, without any major corporate hassle.

Weaknesses

1) Frequent product recalls: Bosch has faced frequent product recalls in the recent past. There have been four major instances in the past eight years where Bosch had to recall its product on a large scale. The most recent one being when Bosch had to recall 63,000 dishwashers sold in Australia because of a potential fire risk.

2) Overdependence on a single segment: For FY15, 59% of the group’s revenue was contributed by the Mobility Solutions segment. Consumer goods accounted for 25% revenue, but the Industrial Technology and the Energy and Building Technology segment lacked behind contributing only 9% and 7% respectively. The changing dynamics of the automotive industry along with the overdependence of Bosch group on the segment might amplify the associated business risks.
