Description of Disintermediation. Explanation.

 

Definition Disintermediation. Description.


Disintermediation is the removal (or obsolescence) of an intermediary role in the value chain between manufactures and consumers. For example:

  • The classic disintermediation of computer retailers and resellers by PC-manufacturer Dell through selling direct to end users via the Dell website.

  • An airline selling tickets direct to the public over the internet, thus cutting out the travel agent in the selling process.

  • Amazon for books and CDs.

Major advantages of disintermediation are lower cost for the end consumer, plus shopping-convenience for the consumer who does not want to leave home.


Typical intermediaries in the value chain include: distributors, wholesalers, brokers, agents, resellers and retailers.
