THE WEALTH OF PRODUCTS AND SERVICES PRODUCED IN A COUNTRY MAKES OUR ECONOMY STRONG.THE BEHAVIOR OF HUMAN BEING DURING THE PURPASE IS TERMED AS BUYER BEHAVIOR.CUSTOMER SAYS ONE THING BUT DO ANOTHER.THEY MAY NOT BE IN TOUCH WITH THEIR DEEPER MOTIVATIONS. CUSTOMER BUYING DECISION PROCESS: 1. PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION : THE BUYING PROCESS STARTS WHEN THE BUYER RECOGNIZES A PROBLEM OR NEED.MARKETERS NEED TO IDENTIFY THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT TRIGGER PARTICULAR NEED.BY GATHERING INFORMATION,FROM A NUMBER OF CONSUMERS; MARKETERS CAN IDENTIFY THE MOST FREQUENT STIMULI THAT SPARK AN INTEREST IN A PRODUCT CATEGORY. 2.

  • 7. OUT LOOK OF TWO-WHEELER INDUSTRY AFTER INDEPENDENCE, BAJAJ AUTO LTD. HAD AN UNDISPUTED LEADERSHIP OVER THE MARKET. THE INDUSTRY REGISTERED COMPOUNDED GROWTH RATE OF 12% DURING THE SEVENTIES. IN PHASE TWO, JAPANESE COMPANIES WERE TYING UP WITH DOMESTIC PLAYERS AND NEW MODELS WERE INTRODUCED. THE GROWTH RATE FOR THE TWO- WHEELER INDUSTRY THIS PHASE STOOD AT 16.4%. THIS PHASE EXTENDED TILL EARLY NINETIES. IN PHASE THREE, SALES STARTED PICKING UP IN 1994. IN 1995, THE INDUSTRY PRODUCED ABOUT ONE MILLION SCOOTERS AND 6 LAKH MOTORCYCLES. ALL MOST ALL THE COMPANIES WERE GOING IN FOR EXPANSION.THE MANUFACTURERS OF TWO-WHEELERS DISTINGUISH THEIR PRODUCTS ON THE BASIS OF POWER, FUEL EFFICIENCY, AND MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENT, EASY IN HANDLING, STYLE & PRICE. INDIA IS THE THIRD LARGEST PRODUCER OF TWO WHEELERS AFTER JAPAN AND CHINA AND THE SECOND LARGEST CONSUMER AFTER CHINA. DESPITE THE POOR ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE AND THE MEAGER PURCHASING POWER, THE TWO- WHEELER INDUSTRY IN INDIA HAS ENJOYED A WIDER APPEAL WITH THE MASSES AS A MEANS OF PRIVATE TRANSPORT. TWO-WHEELERS ARE USUALLY CLASSIFIED INTO THREE TYPES: THEY ARE SCOOTERS, MOTORCYCLES, MOPEDS AND ELECTRIC TWO WHEELER. THE MOTORCYCLE INDUSTRY, HAS REACHED THE STATE OF A COMPETITIVE MARKET WITH A FEW COMPANIES PRODUCING A GOOD RANGE OF PRODUCTS AND PRESENT THRUST IS UPON INNOVATIONS AND HIGH EFFICIENCIES. THE MARKET HAS STEADILY MOVED FROM A SELLERS MARKET TO A BUYERS MARKET. THE COMPANIES ARE RESPONDING QUICKLY TO CHANGING CUSTOMER DEMANDS TO STAY IN THE BUSINESS. PRODUCTS ARE INTRODUCING VARIOUS MODELS OR UPGRADING EXISTING MODELS TO CATER TO THE DIFFERENT SEGMENT AND THERE IS AN EMPHASIS ON INCREASING ADVERTISEMENT EXPENDITURE AND BETTER SERVICE THROUGH UPGRADED SERVICE CENTERS.

COMPANIES SHOULD GIVE MORE EMPHASIZE ON NEWS PAPER AS AN INFORMATIVE TOOL FOR GIVING THE INFORMATION ABOUT MOTORBIKE. 2. IF COMPANY’S TECHNICAL DEPARTMENT WILL WORK IN INCREASING THE MILEAGE AND STYLISH LOOK OF MOTORBIKE SO MORE CUSTOMER WILL ATTRACT. 3. THE DEALERS MUST EMPHASIS ON GOOD AND HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CUSTOMERS BECAUSE CUSTOMERS ARE VERY MUCH AFFECTED BY THEIR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES WHO ARE USING THE MOTORBIKE. 4. COMPANIES SHOULD CONTINUE ITS WAY OF CREATING THE BRAND NAME LIKE FULFILLING THE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. 5. REGULAR CUSTOMER FEEDBACK SHOULD BE THERE SO COMPANY CAN KNOW REGULARLY THAT, WHAT CUSTOMERS WANT IS.
