Hi,
This market sizing question is better solved with a supply approach.
So estimate based on the following components
- Share of this cinema chain in all the malls
- On avg how many halls this cinema has in a mall
- Number of movies per day in a hall (may need to differentiate by weekday and weekend)
- Avg capacity of each hall, i.e. seats
- Occupancy rate of each hall (need to make assumption for weekday and weekend separately; also clarify whether you need to adjust for Friday night or not)
- Ticket prices (weekday, weekend)
- Other revenue stream e.g. F&B (can be a simple % of the total ticket sales for simplicity)

Best,

Emily

Hello!

Actually, this market sizing promp has more info than what normally you can expect ;)

My approach would be:

1. Estimate number of cinemas > you can calculate the ratio between population and shopping malls, and than extrapolate.

2. Estimate the number of visitors per day on average > leveraging your own knowledge about the topic + the information you got given of high affluence in the weekends

3. Estimate an average price per ticket > taking into consideration the differnt sessions that are layed out in the prompt.

With these 3 points, you have all solved for the classical P x Q.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

Hi,

I believe you have more than needed information to solve the case.

  1. Assume the share of malls with cinemas
  2. Assume the number of cinema rooms, working hours, average size and occupancy during the week and the weekend, and the number of movies per day in each.
  3. Assume different ticket prices by segment

Bain Case: Old Winery

Solved 70.1k times
Bain Case: Old Winery You have inherited the “Old Winery” from your grandfather, a winery that has been family-owned for five generations and can be dated back to the 16th century. Half of the eleven hectares are used to grow white grapes, the other half to grow red grapes. They are grown in a conventional way, i.e. they are not organically farmed and certified. The vine stocks are in a good condition regarding age and care. Overall, the only ¼ of the harvest is made into wine by the winery itself; the rest is sold. Your grandfather never wanted to change the image of the winery and left the managerial and administrative task to a young and energetic wine-maker. Due to the not so well-known brand, the demand for the “Old Winery” wine is currently rather low. You do not intent to run the winery operatively, given your limited knowledge of winemaking, but find the idea of owning a winery exciting. Your plan is to give the winery some fresh impetus.

Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar

Solved 49.7k times
Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar Onlinestar, an online retailer of furniture and garden products (core business), has grown significantly in recent years as a result of an expansion of its product portfolio. The company mainly imports goods from Chinese manufacturers but also operates its own production of cat lavatories (special business) in Eastern Europe. The company sells its goods via Amazon and eBay, and recently via an online shop on its website. Despite this development, the financial ratios have deteriorated in recent years. In particular, the gross profit margin decreased significantly. Combined with a significant increase in shipping costs, this led to a negative result for the first time in the recently ended fiscal year and a resulting strained financial situation. Against the background of expected stagnating sales for the current financial year, short-term action is required. The board of Onlinestar asks you for an analysis of the reasons for the negative result as well as a derived recommendation for action. As a consultant, you should bring in your knowledge in online trading and develop solutions. In addition, the management board would like to receive a sales and gross profit plan from you for the current financial year.
