Changes to marketplace structure

Strategies to take advantage of changes in marketplace structure should also be developed. These options are created through disintermediation and reintermediation (Chapter 2) within a marketplace. The strategic options for the sell-side downstream channels which have been discussed in Chapter 2 are:

• disintermediation (sell direct);
