  2. 2. ANSWER - 1 Home Country:South Korea Product: Gold/Gems Introduction: Our Company is gold jewellery making company. We are going to expand our business in the other country. The steps are following: Macro screening: Asia Pacific holds the largest gold jewellery market in the world with more than half of the share being contributed by India and China alone. India is the largest market for gold jewellery in the world, representing a staggering 552.0 tonnes of gold in 2012. China is the fastest-growing market for gold jewellery in the world, accounting for 518.8 tonnes of demand in 2012. The US accounted for 108.4 tonnes of gold in jewellery during 2012. PESTLE Analysis of China: Political: After the economic reform in 1978, the economic is growing spectacularly in China. The reform comprises of motivating the development of private business, foreign trade liberalization, foreign direct investment, and industrial production investment as well as the employment profile. From 1979 to 1994, more than 42 % Chinese economic rate has been grown up. However, there are still many risks to consider before expanding to China. One risk is that the Chinese communist, socialist philosophy continues to be core to the Chinese culture and may impact the political/legal environment and therefore foreign investments in the future. Another risk is that the stability of the current Chinese regime may be negatively impacted by demonstrations protesting cultural changes, low growth, and inequities of wealth and power. Legal:Anti-Competitive Practices - Cartels are independent enterprises created to eliminate competitors. The leaders of a Cartel hope to create a monopoly, or an enterprise that has the exclusive control or rights to sell a product. Cartels and monopolies unlawfully enlarge their areas of trade and create unfair selling practices in order to acquire illegal income which endangers the interests of the consumers. Social: Chinese buy gold as an inflation hedge. Individuals in China are using gold as a substitute for capital flight. Though the buying of gold has increased, while inflation has eased. This means that as the inflation will get more eased up and people will start feeling secure, gold demand would eventually decrease. Economic Analysis: The Chinese government views a growing economy as vital to maintaining social stability. However, China faces a number of major economic challenges which could undermine future growth, including distortive economic policies that have resulted in over-reliance on fixed investment and exports for economic growth (rather than on consumer demand), government support for state-owned firms, a weak banking system, widening income gaps, growing pollution, and the relative lack of the rule of law in China.
  3. 3. Technological: By the early 2000s, the hardware, software and, in general, the web technology were mature enough for develop the design and processing the gold. Environmental: There is not much environmental difference in the in the jewellery industry. Because the gold jewellery can be used in any environment. PESTLE analysis of India: The gems and jewellery sector contributes significantly to the Indian economy through employment generation, exports and value additions. A positive business environment to go with the several incentives offered by the government has further enhanced the country's status as one of the primary global destinations for gems and jewellery. The country possesses skilled workforce of over a million people, who are adept at fashioning beautiful jewellery. This has attracted several international jewellery giants to set up base in the country like Crystal major Swarovski, Swiss luxury and jewellery watch brand de Grisogono etc. WGC has formed a separate private company in India to undertake activities on a larger scale in the Indian market. This includes entering into a commercial setup with banks and gold industry players in future. The corporate structure will help WGC remove the handicaps of operating as a liaison office. As of now, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) does not allow liaison offices to partake in any commercial activity in the country. The gems and jewellery industry occupies an important position in the Indian economy. It is a leading foreign exchange earner, as well as one of the fastest growing industries in the country The two major segments of the sector in India are gold jewellery and diamonds. Gold jewellery forms around 80 per cent of the Indian jewellery market, with the balance comprising fabricated studded jewellery that includes diamond studded as well as gemstone studded jewellery. Competitor Analysis: Porter’s Five Forces Analysis of Gold Industry: Threat of New Entrants:Several of the existing firms have contracts with well-known jewelry distributing companies. New entrants may find it difficult to contract with these companies, because they lack the financial status. Also new entrants do not have a reputable name, which may cause doubt from a diamond distributing company and thus no contract will be created. The entry into this market is getting increasingly difficult due to the growth of companies already established in the industry and due to high initial investment costs. Power of Suppliers: The primary resource a gold mine needs is land which is available in large amount in the world. So the only supply problem remains is the government’s permit to mine the land. Issues like environmental risks possess difficult challenges in securing government’s approval. Bargaining Power of Customers: Moderate-Customers have little bargaining power regarding price when they shop at luxury stores and refuse to search for alternatives, because of such a limited selection. Availability of Substitute: Currently the threat from substitutes is relatively low. Substitutes for gold include other precious metals like silver, platinum, diamonds etc. Although their acceptance level is lower than gold.
  4. 4. Competitive Rivalry amongst existing firms: High-In the jewellery industry companies that are considered mass merchandisers or limited line jewellers generally compete on the basis of price.There is a high growth rate in the industry. The companies have created a stagnant industry that now competes by taking market share away from the other players and creates price wars among many of the firms in the industry. Major players: Gitanjali groups, Titan industry, P.C jewellers, Prince Gems & jewellery etc. Customer need and wants: India is the biggest consumer of the gold. Love of gold in India is goes for beyond a simple source of future profit. It is an expression of wealth financial security and family stability. It also carries religious overtones. Reasons for Selection of our target markets: China (Pros): Largest population Fast growing Economy Largest exporter of gold in year 2013 Cons: High government involvement and almost authoritarian rules and regulations Anti-competitive market Gold demand might not sustain as economy stabilises. India (Pros): Large population (2nd only to China) Fast growing economy Demand of jewelleries throughout the year because of various festivals across different cultures and diversities. Except for last year, India was leading importer of gold and jewelleries. Lenient government policies for MNCs. Cons: Already established players in this industry. Plethora of unorganized players. People still do not readily accept branded jewelleries After comparing industry condition in both the countries, we have concluded that doing business in India would be easier and profitable in India rather than China.
