  16. 16. Competitors in Market For Lipton Ice Tea, the direct competitors belong to the tea and the indirect competitors are of the beverage industry.  State Of Market and Competition: As far as the competitors are concerned, Lipton has a strong competitor in this field. Nestea and Coca-Cola is also producing ice tea in India. Lipton can have a competitive edge over Nestea by producing iced tea in the country and making it available for target customers at a lower price than competitors. Secondly Unilever is a trusted company so people prefer buying its products and they are not reluctant in trying its products.  DIRECT COMPETITORS: The direct competitors of our Product are: • Nestea: We are competing our product with them because they are the main competitors of the ice tea market and they are providing the many flavor of ice tea and also they have contain 73% market share of ice tea.- • Coca-Cola- Coca cola is coming with their ice tea drink Fuze with six flavor. Coca cola is new entrant for Lipton as well as Nestea.  INDIRECT COMPETITORS:As the ice tea is the symbol of the refreshment and nutrition and its is also a substitute for the other soft drinks, so in the soft drink market we have the competitors like carbonate drinks, juice.

  19. 19. SWOT ANALYSIS LIPTON ICE TEA  STRENGTHS: • LIPTON ICE TEA provides extra nutrients in the form of natural extracts. These extracts provide additional vitamins, calcium, iron, carbohydrates etc. LIPTON ICE TEA does not consist of any artificial flavorings or colors. • The USP is very distinct considering the fact that this product has a combination of attributes that are not otherwise found in the competing products. LIPTON ICE TEA’s distinctiveness lies in its nutritional value and herbs which serves as its USP.
  20. 20.  WEAKNESS: • Strong Direct & Indirect Competition:-There is strong competition in the industry through the presence of Tea industry giants like Tata tea, Taza etc. and in addition Pepsi and Coca-Cola capture a large market share through efficient and widespread promotional campaigns and distribution network. • Conventional Perception About Tea:-In a country like India the consumption of tea is very high. Keeping this in mind there are a lot of companies catering to this need segment. LIPTON ICE TEA, though is a differentiated product, has tea as its base, therefore the first image that it conjures up in the mind of users is that of a drink that is taken chilled in different flavours. • Competition:-Lipton has intense competition, as our analysis is one of their weaknesses as to stay alive against a giant as Lipton and the other one new entrant in the beverages industries. Our product is suitable only for summer season.
  21. 21.  OPPORTUNITY: • High Potential In Terms Of Increasing Market Share:- LIPTON TEA Pvt. Ltd views the ever increasing market share of 1.2 billon population as an opportunity for LIPTON ICE TEA. • Higher degree of adaptability from the younger generation:-The youth of India in contrast to their precedents are more adaptable and recipient towards new ideas. It will attract these youngsters as well as people in their thirties through these features, who over all other things rate convenience and quality first. • Nutritional Product:-LIPTON ICE TEA, in contrast to tea and other fruit drinks available in the market, contains no artificial flavors or coloring. Apart from this it’s low caffeine content, non- carbonated and presence of additional vitamins, calcium, carbohydrate and iron contents make it an attractive alternative to the already present drinks in the market. The novelty of our drink will attract the health conscious group of consumers who are otherwise neglected.
  22. 22.  THREATS: • Government Policies:-Government Policies like GST, which has been levied upon all consumer products, poses as a threat to us as to fulfill this criterion and to cover our costs we have to set our prices higher than we initially hoped for. Apart from this the discouraging policies regarding the import of tealeaves is another threat for us. • Competitor’s Strategies And Polices:-The very fact that LIPTON ICE TEA is competing against names like Nestea, Coca-Cola Fuze, etc. poses to be a threat for us. At this initial stage, though LIPTON ICE TEA will be substantiated with an adequate advertising budget, it may still fall short of that of its competitors. • NEW competitor enters in the market like Coca-Cola with Fuze tea. • As we are distributors if company increase their price or stop manufacturing the product our business will lead to failure.
  23. 23. MARKETING STRATEGY AND OBJECTIVES  Marketing Strategy: • Lipton Ice Tea would be considered product development as it is a new product and targets new market. • The target market is younger, energetic and moderate-to-high-income individuals who seek different tastes in their drinks and teas. Lipton Ice Tea will be positioned as a drink more fun and refreshing , for more outgoing people and for people with a distinctive taste. • Lipton aims to catch more of market share in the long run. To achieve this Lipton will maintain high quality of materials and products and keep improving it over the years. Prices could vary slightly depending on competition from other firms • TARGET MARKETS- Teenagers And Young Adults.

  25. 25. Inventory and sales • Lipton expects around 500 students everyday. • They bring fresh material daily which helps them to maintain their quality and their customer loyalty. • However, these figures don’t hold true for the months of December, June and July when students are not in campus and the sales also decrease during exam days. • But during the fests the sales increase.
  26. 26. Competitors if any…  Bean-O-Mania  Jain Kiryana Shop  C-Cubes  Verka But the Lipton team believes that :  All are different organizations  They don’t feel any kind of pressure when it comes to competition.

  30. 30. Lipton PEST Analysis
  31. 31. Product Life Cycle  Just how humans are born, grow, mature and eventually pass away, similar is the story with products.  Products also follow the same life cycle as humans and is the called Product Life Cycle.  On similar lines, Industries also follow the same trend and is called the Industry Life Cycle. There are four basic stages that all products go through which are -  The Introductory Stage  The Growth Stage  The Maturity Stage  The Decline Stage.
  32. 32. From the Table above we can clearly infer that the Iced Tea in India is still in its Introductory stage because of the following, 1)High Cost, Less Sales 2)Less Brand awareness 3)Lot of advertising & promoting campaigns 4)Less competitors.
  33. 33. Porter model • THREATS OF NEW ENTRANTS  High capital Lipton is the market leader of tea worldwide. Any new entrant in the market needs a huge capital to participate in the race with the Lipton  OWN DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM To own a distributor channel in the market where large organization like Lipton are already present is very difficult for the new entrants  BRAND IDENTITY How to identify our brand in the market is more difficult for any new entrants, because Lipton is a very recognizable brand so it is very difficult for the new entrant to compete.
  34. 34. • BARGAINING POWER OF BUYERS The bargaining power of buyers with Lipton products is very high in India because of their price sensitivity, brand loyalty status which is becoming high inIndia and they are becoming more familiar with the products and the features of different brands including Unilevers brand Lipton. BARGAINING POWER OF SUPPLIERS The bargaining power of suppliers with Lipton in India is very low because of the availability of large numbers of suppliers in the market and it becomes the honor for the suppliers to become a supplier of Lipton, the world’s largest HOUSEHOLD Company, but now Unilever has almost its own suppliers. • THREATS OF NEW Substitutes Lipton does not have so many threats of substitutes for its products except for few which are:
  35. 35. Inter rivalry Bargaining power of buyer Bargaining power of suppliers Threat of substitutes Threat of new entrants
  36. 36. Industrial analysis • In 2005, the tea industry reached the $1.7 billion category and it is expected to continue growing indefinitely. Market analysts believe the tea industry will continue to boom and is not expected to reach saturation level in the near future. The favorable movement in the tea industry can be attributed to two major factors: • a) Consumers need for convenience and time-saving services; • b) The positive press given to tea. • As so many companies do increase their Product Mix in order to increase the sales by serving a different and unconsidered segment of the market and also to increase their market share
  37. 37. US - Lipton and Competition 79% 3%% 4%% 7%% 7%% Soft Drinks and Alternative Beverages generate retail sales of over 70$ billion Bottled Water is the fastest growing beverage category!!! Lipton has been leading the market by introducing innovative products such as dieting and flavored teas backed up by smart spending on Rainforest Alliance to gain access to non-auctioned tea - Teaconomics
