  3. 3. Consumer Durable MarketA change in the lifestyle, higher disposable income coupled with greater affordability and a great surge in advertisinghas seen the demand for consumer durable products escalate in recent years.Financing schemes and lower EMIs have led to exponential increase in turnover over the years.

  4. 4. Competitor Analysis  White goods characterized by High-priced & heavy Slow-moving electronic goods like fridge, AC etc.  Brown goods characterized by  Light electronic consumer  Low-priced and fast-moving goods including gadgets of various natures. Finding 1: Godrej is not present in many of the consumer durable product space & is thus losing out on the opportunity of being a complete consumer durable product provider. Finding 2: From the primary research we found that Godrej has a very good brand recall, it should target to enter into other segments and be a household name in the consumer durable product space.
  5. 5. Strategic Group Analysis (SGA) Product Diversity Vs Promotion & Dist.  LG & Samsung are clear industry leaders – well established in terms of diversity as well as distribution  Companies in SG2 (Sony & Videocon) are lacking in terms of wide product line  SG3 companies like Philips, Godrej & Bajaj have fair product lines but they lack last mile reach – Need to increase the distribution Technology Capability Vs Price Range  LG & Samsung are leading – they have presence in wide spectrum of business segments which make them the mass reaching company  Godrej has fair product price range but lack in technology capability , though recent development (Chotu kool) are steps in right direction

  14. 14. Product Level Launch StrategyAll the launches will have phased approach such that starting with the initial pilot phase and moving to later phaseson basis of its success in the regionThe timeline for the launch should be aligned with the harvesting time which happens at three different timesdepending on region – Kharif, Rabi & Zaid. Air Cooler Initial focus should be to launch the product in Hot Dry & Composite regions indecreasing order of priority; Formation of different clusters for the phased launchof the product --- Roadmap -- Phase 1 - Pilot(away from coast): Parts of Maharashtra, Gujarat Phase 2 – Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab Phase 3 - Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Bihar and parts of Andhra Pradesh Induction Cooker, Washing Machine & Water PurifierNo dependence on climate – therefore launch area will be selected purely onbasis of income level, HDI and GDI of the region; Cluster formation will be donesince helps in synergising the logistics in a region --- Roadmap -- Phase 1 – Pilot: Maharashtra & Gujarat (West cluster) Phase 2 – Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu (South cluster) Phase 3 – Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab Later Phases – Add other states by expanding different cluster on the basis of response
