The Achilles’ Heel of Groupon and LivingSocial?

As Groupon and LivingSocial continue their ascent towards Fortune 500 status, an internal weakness may have started to surface; are Groupon and LivingSocial now too big to cater to local markets?

The problem with being too big in the localized Group Buy market is that the capacity of the local vendor is usually capped. In other words, most local vendors cannot meet the demand for their products/services after doing a Group Buy deal with a big Group Buy site. There are numerous accounts of vendors turning away voucher holders simply because too many were sold.

Daily-deal services will generate $3.93 billion by 2015

BIA/Kelsey, adviser to companies in the local media industry, released a new forecast on U.S. consumer spending on deal-a-day offers, which the firm expects will grow from $873 million in 2010 to $3.9 billion in 2015, representing a 35.1 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR). While this is the most likely growth case, BIA/Kelsey suggests a number of variables will have an impact on the actual development of deal a day, such as growth in the number of cities/sites, registered users, transactions per year for the average user and the average price per transaction. Considering these variables, deal a day could grow to as much as $6.1 billion by 2015 (47.4 percent CAGR), while a very conservative outlook pegs the space at $2.1 billion (19.7 percent CAGR).
