Lux introduction

  1. 1. PROJECT REPORTLUX INTRODUCTION Consumer is the king of any business activity. It is very important for any marketing person to know how the consumer perceives different things and how he behaves accordingly. So consumer research is imperative for the success of any marketing effort. Hence an attempt is made in the present Chapter to study the behavior and perception of consumer. First of all perception is defined as the process of receiving, selecting organizing, interpreting, checking and reacting to sensory stimuli or data. Consumer behavior is defined as “behavior that consumer display in searching for purchasing, using evaluating and disposing of product and services that they expect will satisfy their needs”. The study of consumer behavior is the study of how the individuals make decision to spend their available resources like time, money, effort, etc, on consumption related items. It includes the study of what they buy, when they buy it, why they buy it, where they buy it, how often they buy it and often use it. As marketer, it is important to recognize why and how individuals make their consumption decision, so that we make better strategic marketing decision. If marketer understand consumer behavior they are able to predict how consumer are likely to react to various information and environmental cues and are able to shape their marketing strategies accordingly. With out doubt, marketers who understand consumer behavior will have great competitive edge in the market. Consumer behavior is relatively new field of study in the mid-to-late 1960’s with no body of research of its own, the discipline borrowed heavily from concepts developed in other scientific disciplines, such as Psychology (study of individuals), Sociology (Study of groups), Social psychology ( studyOSMANIA COLLRGE, KURNOOL
  2. 2. PROJECT REPORTLUX of how an individual operates in groups), Anthropology ( the influence of society on individuals) and Economies. The initial thrust of consumer behavior was from a managerial prospective, marketing manager wanted to know the specific causes of consumer behavior. They also wanted to know how people receive store and use consumption related information so that they could design marketing strategies to influence consumption decision. They regard consumer behavior disciplines as an applied marketing science. There are number of reasons why the study of consumer behavior was developed as a separate marketing discipline. Marketers had long noted that consumer did not act or react as marketing theory would suggest. The size of the consumer market in every country is vast and constantly expanding. Large amount were being spent on goods and services by millions of peoples. Consumer preference were changing and becoming highly diversified. Even in industrial markets, where needs for goods and services were always more homogeneous than in consumer markets, buyers were exhibiting diversified preference and less predictable purchase behavior. As marketing people began to study the buying behavior of consumer, they soon realized that despite a sometimes “mo too” approach to fact and fashions, many consumer rebelled at using the identical product every one else used. Instead they preferred differentiated product that they felt reflected their own special new personalities and life styles. So by studying consumer behavior marketing people will be able to needs of different groups of customers more efficiently.OSMANIA COLLRGE, KURNOOL
  3. 3. PROJECT REPORTLUX INDUSTRY PROFILE ABOUT THE SOAP INDUSTRY: ORIGIN OF SOAP INDUSTRY: History of soap dates way back from 2350 years. Soap manufacturing was started in North America. Early in the history of Europe colonies and of the republic. Some American companies with currently well known names were started 50 to 200 years ago. During middle ages, soap was made at various places in Italy, France, Spain, England and possible other countries. Mankind knew about soap nearly 200 years back 70 A.D. when Mr.Pllny and Mr. elder evidentially discovered the soap when roasted meat over flowed on the flow in ashes. This lump like product was soap and had foaming and cleansing character. Since then 1192 A.D. that in the first time detergent was taken in London. It is in 1931 A.D. that in the first time detergent was discovered by Mr.Grency with the sulphated olive oil and almond oil. The wood consumption of soap in 1884 A.D. was said to be lakhs/ton per annum and it was in this year Mr.W.H.L. ever entered the field of the soap making in a big way. SOAP INDUSTRY IN INDIA: Soap industry in India began with M/S Godrej setting up their manufacturing unit in 1918 at Mumbai and M/S government soap factory in Bangalore. The industry stagnated due to the in informed price control. The industry soon recovered and experienced sharp ups wing during 1974. PROBLEMS OF SOAP INDUSTRY: Soap industry faces some problems in the case of raw materials. The major ingredients like soap ash, linear alkyl, benzene and sodium Tripoli phosphate poses number of series in terms of availability. The demand supply gap to vegetable oil is 1.5-2 lakhs tons and is met through imports. In recent months, price of caustic soda has shown a rising trend. The contents of soda ash in the cheaper varieties of soap are quite high.OSMANIA COLLRGE, KURNOOL
  4. 4. PROJECT REPORTLUX FUTURE OF SOAP INDUSTRY: The growth prospects seems to be enormous considering the fact that the per capita income consumption in India is as low at 0.30kg over the year we have M/S HUL, M/S TAMCO,LUX etc., leading the industry in the field of soap manufacture, growth of population, income Consumption, expenditure increased in urban cities spread of education, growing degree of personal hygiene etc., has increased by the spread of audio- visual media, rising incomes and general consciousness about the health.

INTRODUCTION Behavior is a mirror in which every one shows his or her images. Behavior is the process of responding to stimuli. Consumer behavior is to do with the activities of individual in obtaining and using the goods and services; it encompasses the decision – making process that precedes and determines purchases. STANDARD DEFINATIONS Professor Walter C.G. and Professor Paul G.W, “the process whereby individuals decide whether, what, when, where, how and from whom to purchase goods and services”. Professor Bearden and Associates. Consumer behavior is “the mental and emotional processes and the physical activities of people activities of people who purchases and use goods and services to satisfy particular needs and wants”OSMANIA COLLRGE, KURNOOL
  16. 16. PROJECT REPORTLUX THE CONSUMER BUYING PROCESS: Understanding consumer behavior makes it mandatory to first understand the buying process. Goods many models of consumer behavior portraying buying process have been developed during the last three decades. These models treat consumer as a decision-maker. Among all these models, the one given by Mr. Howard and J.Sheth in their title THE THEORY OF BUYER BEHAVIOR is having sophisticated model which is the most comprehensive and, hence, largely accepted. In simple words, the buying process is made up of three stages namely, ‘input’-‘process’-‘output’. STEPS IN BUYING PROCESS: The consumer buying process is a five steps activity. These five steps are 1. Need Recognition. 2. Information Search. 3. Evaluation and Intention. 4. Purchases decision and 5. Post purchases reaction. 1. Need recognition: The starting point of buying process is the perceived want or a desire. Need recognition is the awareness of the want or a consumption problem without whose satisfaction the consumer feels restless and tension-charged. That is, he or she feels that a desire or want has arisen which has to be satisfied. Needs or wants arise either due to internal stimulus or external stimulus.OSMANIA COLLRGE, KURNOOL
  17. 17. PROJECT REPORTLUX 2. Information search: A need aroused and recognized can be satisfied only when the product or services is available. Consumer interest is indicated in the consumer’s willingness to seek further about product or satisfaction, he searches relevant information. Consumer has many alternative sources of information to tap such as friends, relatives, neighbors, salesman, dealers, advertisements, packages and above all consumer organizations. 3. Evaluation and Intension: It is consumer’s deep interest in the product or services that paves the way for evaluation and intention. The evaluation stages is the stages of mental trial of the product or a services based on the accumulated information and judges the relative worth of alternatives products or services from the angle of want satisfying potential. The final purchases depend on the relative strength of the positive intention to buy. 4. Purchase decision: It is the positive intention of the consumer that leads to a purchases decision. Decision to purchase implies consumer commitment for a product or a service. Practically, it is the last stage in the buying process because, it completes the exchanges process. Such a purchase may be a trial or adoption. Trial purchases are done when the consumer buys the products or service for the first time. This occurs mostly in case of consumer non-durables. In case of consumer durables, it is purchase adoption than trial because, consumer durable items cannot be purchased on trial basis. 5. Post-purchase reaction: Post-purchase behavior or reaction stands for the behavior of a consumer after a commitment to product has been made. This post- purchase experience may be a set of positive or negative feelings. Positive feelings or satisfaction will result in repeat sales or at least recommending the products or services to other; on the other hand, dis-satisfaction or negative feelings creating anxiety and doubts. This stage of mind is called as ‘cognitive dissonance’. He tries toOSMANIA COLLRGE, KURNOOL
  18. 18. PROJECT REPORTLUX reduce it by going in for other alternative products or service in search of highest level of satisfaction. A word of caution, at this level, is essential. The stages mentioned above are only a graphic description of a buying process. There is no specific pattern in which every adoption process must fit in. As consumer is unique creature, one may be quick; another may be slow to reach each stage or stages. It is consumer personality-speed-caution-difference-wavering-shyness-risk taking- jubilant-serious all follow these stages to make purchase. 1. PSYCHOLOGICAL DETERMINANTS: Psychological have also provided certain clues as to why a consumer behaves this way or that way. The major psychological determinants internal to the individual are-motivation-perception learning-attitude and personality. Here is an attempt to explain and to know their implications in so far as consumer behavior is concerned. A. Motivation: Motivation is the ‘why’ of behavior. It is an intervening variable between stimulus and response and a governing force of consumer behavior”, motivation refers to the drives, urges, wishes or desires which initiate the sequence of events known as behavior.” B. Perception: Marketing management is concerned with the understating of the process of perception because; perception because, perception leads to thought and thought leads to action. Perception is the process where by stimuli are received and interpreted by the individual and translated into a response. C. Learning: In behavioral science, learning means any change in behavior which comes about as a result of experience. Learning is the process of acquiring knowledge. Consumer behavior is a process of learning because, it is modified according to the customer’s past experience and the objective he or she has set. D. Attitude:OSMANIA COLLRGE, KURNOOL
  19. 19. PROJECT REPORTLUX The concept of attitude occupies a central position a consumer; behavior studies in particular and social psychological in general because; attitude measurements help in understanding and prediction way when presented with a given stimulus and the attitude towards people, place, products and things can be positive and negative or favorable or unfavorable. E. Personality: Very often, the word ‘personality’ is used to refer to the capacity of a person for popularity, friendliness or charisma. However, in strict sense, it refers to the essential difference between one individual and another. Therefore, personality consists of a mannerisms, habit and actions that makes a person an individual and thereby serve to make hem distinct from every one else. The personality of an individual is either expressed in terms of traits or type. The personality traits may be-aggressiveness-honesty-anxiety-independence- sociability and so on.

LUX soap was launched in the United States in 1957. , years after Unilever acquired soap factory De Duif (Dutch: The Dove) in The Netherlands, from which the English brand name LUX is derived. LUX has been positioned throughout its history without referring to it as “soap”, but as a “’beauty bar” with one-fourth cleansing cream; they stress its moisturizing of skin while washing in contrast to the drying effects of regular soaps(which their advertising calls simply “soap”). Advertisements reinforced the message by showing the cream being poured into the beauty bar. In 1979, the phrase “cleansing cream” was replaced with “moisturizer cream”. In 1979, a Pennsylvania dermatologist showed that LUX dried and irritated skin significantly less than ordinary soaps. As a result of the study, Unilever started aggressive marketing and won more than 24% of the market by 2003.OSMANIA COLLRGE, KURNOOL
