Indian Rural Market <ul><li>Some facts about Indian Rural markets are as following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>India has 72% of the total population in the rural areas. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The rural market is not fully developed and it has very low literacy rate. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>But it has very good potential keeping in mind the number of people residing there. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Indian Rural Market <ul><li>As a result of the growing affluence, fuelled by good monsoons and the increase in agricultural output to rural India has a large consuming class with 41 per cent of India's middle-class and 58 per cent of the total disposable income. </li></ul><ul><li>The importance of the rural market for some FMCG and durable marketers is underlined by the fact that the rural market accounts for close to 70 per cent of toilet-soap users and 38 per cent of all two-wheeler purchased. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Indian Rural Market <ul><li>The rural market accounts for half the total market for TV sets, fans, pressure cookers, bicycles, washing soap, blades, tea, salt and toothpowder, What is more, the rural market for FMCG products is growing much faster than the urban counterpart. </li></ul><ul><li>The rural market may be alluring but it is not without its problems: Low per capita disposable incomes that is half the urban disposable income; large number of daily wage earners, acute dependence on the vagaries of the monsoon; seasonal consumption linked to harvests and festivals and special occasions; poor roads; power problems; and inaccessibility to conventional advertising media. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Why Indian Rural Market is growing? <ul><li>The income level and the distribution of income is becoming equal and balanced. So the people in the rural areas have the same opportunity of growth as the people of urban areas have. </li></ul><ul><li>Good support from the private as well as the government agencies is provided for the development of the rural area people. Institutions like: IFCI, SIDBI, ICICI etc. These introduced many schemes which are resulting into the development of rural area people. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Why Indian Rural Market is growing? <ul><li>The scope in the urban area is restricted due to the dominance of the big and multinational company. So, many small scale industries came in the rural areas resulting into the development of the rural area. </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing exposures to the outer world through the development of media result into the change in the mindset. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Barriers of Growth in Rural Market <ul><li>The income level is still not matching to the urban market. </li></ul><ul><li>The knowledge and education level is low. </li></ul><ul><li>Less chances available for growth. Still here people prefer to go outside to the urban areas for the job and other things. </li></ul><ul><li>The infrastructure is not so much available. </li></ul><ul><li>Traditional way of thinking. </li></ul>
  8. 8. What should keep in mind to get success in Rural market? <ul><li>The 4A Approach </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Availability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Affordability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Acceptability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Awareness </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Why companies are focusing towards rural market <ul><li>Due to the huge potential. </li></ul><ul><li>Restriction in the urban markets. </li></ul><ul><li>Future growth chances. </li></ul><ul><li>Consumption rate or volume sales is high. </li></ul>
