With an understanding of the rapidly changing consumer preferences coupled with the use of the latest technologies; Micromax differentiated itself from the other players with its pricing everything started with a truck battery in the year 2007. In 2008 Micromax ventured into the mobile handset market. The brand wanted to create a base before taking on the large players. Hence as a go to market strategy, Micromax concentrated on the rural market first. It was a different move altogether since most of the marketers tend to concentrate on the urban markets and then move to the rural market.

  7. 7. SWOT analysis Strengths: Micromax is well known brand in electronic market Micromax is in both direct market as well as open market in mobile segment. Collaboration with Aircel, MTS(SSTL),Virgin mobile. Large range of CDMA mobile product from Rs 1,000/- to Rs 14,000/-. Innovative and Featured product. Strong National distribution channels. Effective promotional campaign. Weakness: Micromax‟s late entry in Indian mobile market. Micromax has less service centers compared to other big players. Less investment in R&D as compared to biggies like NOKIA, SAMSUNG. Misunderstanding has a Chinese Brand Poor service after sales support. Opportunities: Tele density is increasing in Indian telecom market. CDMA mobile would pay a major role in rural penetration. 3Gservice availability. Falling ARPU‟s of Indian telecoms. Foreign telecom are coming into Indian market would be opportunity for direct market. Threats: Popularity of GSM mobile. Competitors are focusing only in telecom segment. Entry of foreign player in mobile equipment market Threats from Chinese mobile market and well known players.
  8. 8. Future expectation Micromax has achieved success within a short span of time and hopes to be best in the market in near future by beating Nokia and Samsung down in the track. Marketing strategy As the numbers of mobile users are relatively young, Micromax should change its marketing strategy and will give more focus on this age group Services As Micromax has less service centers compared to other big players, we hope Micromax should come up with some relevant services from time to time differentiate its product and to generate additional revenue. Advertising strategy Micromax should give high priority to customer service and satisfaction as satisfied customers do the best advertisement. To increase the market share As the society always needs new in everything, Micromax should continue with its innovative ideas for making a mobile phone which will be very different from others. Focus on international market Micromax needs to expand to international markets and enter into neighboring Indian countries, South African countries etc. Electronic products Micromax launched a new range of LED Television, home threaters, 3D Blu Ray and Smart stick the Android dongle on 9 th October 2012. Micromax should continue with electronic product, so as to give competition to the market leaders in Indian market first.
