1)Massey Ferguson operates as a producer of farm machinery, industrial machinery and diesel engines. In these types of industries are many SME's (small and medium-sized enterprises) and MNE's(multinational enterprises), as Massey Ferguson, present. As a result there is a high level of competition in these markets.

Even if they were successful in 3rd world or developing countries there is no precise positioning about their product market strategy.
