  25. 25. H1: Micromax has established itself as a Brand. As per the analysis TOM, Awareness & Loyalty factor of the data collected we can conclude that it is not a brand. H2: Micromax Smartphones are youth-centric . As per analysis of various factors like price, youth centricity, etc we accept the hypothesis. H3: Good Distribution & Retailer Strategy of Micromax along with low price has been the reason for Micomax’s success. We accept the hypothesis based on the analysis of the retailers data.
  26. 26.      Potential of becoming a brand in smartphone category. Potential for huge increment in market share and compete with likes of Samsung . Needs to focus more on after sales service and open up exclusive Micromax stores. Should enter into newer segments of the market Should move into global markets.
