  2. 2. Project report ON the business line selected And Innovations that we as a Group Would like to bring in The business. SHOE CARE INDUSTRY: The secondary findings from various sources Introduction: The shoe care market includes a wide range of individual products which are used by consumers to clean, polish, care for, change the color of, make more comfortable, or otherwise extend the life of various forms of footwear, including shoes and boots made from leather, suede or synthetic materials, as well as training/sports/casual footwear. Segmentation: The three main categories of shoe care products are as follows: (a) Chemical products: Comprising polishes of various types (pastes, liquids, creams etc), desalters, color changers/dyes, soaps and shampoos, deodorizers (b) Insoles: Comprising inserts to improve the fit or comfort of footwear, to provide an anti-slip action (c) Accessories: Comprising shapers, laces, brushes, dusters. Demand for shoe polish products has been stagnant, one reason being a switch from formal leather shoes to other non maintenance material shoes, another being reduced interest on the part of consumers in the appearance of their shoes. Overall demand is relatively insensitive to price, and because the products are an infrequent purchase, and the items are comparatively low-priced,
  3. 3. consumers tend not to shop around or be sensitive to differences in price between retail outlets. • The range of applied shoe care and shoe polish products available within India • Consumer demand • Brand loyalty and advertising in the market for shoe polish products • the size and structure of the market for shoe polish products markets • Competition and industry pricing. [The market for applied shoe care and shoe polish products is small in comparison with many other consumer products and one on which there is limited published information available.] Proper functions that have to be performed for shoe care • Remove Grass stains, Grease, Oil, Food, Tar, Dust, Paint • Bring Shine • Restore Gloss • Improve the life of the footwear by nourishing the material Secondary Research from internet+ blogs + SSI: 1.The various Shoe type material available in the market are • Leather • Canvass • Smooth leather • Suede • Nubuck • Nylon mesh 2. The various footwear available in the markets are: • Maujri • Athletic • Skets • Sandals • Floaters • Casual wear • Slippers • Sportswear • Outdoor • Hiking and trekking • Formal wear
  4. 4. 3. Broadly in India there are 2 types of shoe care: • Wax polish • Liquid polish 4. Leather industry is shifting to the non leather industry which is keeping in with the current trends and fashions. They are maintenance free and require no shoe care. 5. Occasion when people shop most often: (In order of preference) • Diwali and Id • Discounts season • They are April-March (Because of the market trends) • Sep-Dec is the other peak season due to the festival season • January and June are off-season • Semi planned purchase 7. Key drivers for choice of footwear: • Road Shops – the fashion trends and synchronism with their apparels and comfort ability. • Branded Shops – Comfort ability and then fashion trends. Observations: Some crucial observation in addition 1. There were few, if any, generally perceived quality differences: a tin of black polish, for example, would not be thought of as having any particularly high or low quality but merely as being useful in cleaning black shoes. 2. What most of the students look out for is time convenience and are not price conscious as it is an infrequent purchase 3. They do not lay a major stress on the packaging but the handling and designing 4. Girls do not find any need and requirement to polish their sandals but usually do just use a cloth or home remedies 5. A very striking observation that has been made is that although that the shoe market is increasing the shoe care market has been stagnant
