INTRODUCTION 
Marketing segmentation is a process of 
grouping the customers into number of different 
divisions on the bases of similar characteristics. It 
is a customer oriented philosophy. A market 
segment consists of a identifiable group within a 
market. Every product is not required by 
everybody. Therefore marketer must group the 
customers on the basis of similar characteristics 
or uniform response to a concentrate either on 
one or more groups depending upon his 
capability instead of launching his product in the 
open market.
• Market segmentation strategy involves dividing the 
market into groups, where individuals have similar needs 
and wants for services and products. It could also be a 
segmentation of people on the basis of behavior, culture 
and economic status. To get a clearer picture of what is 
market segmentation, one can always look into the 
definition provided by business dictionary. COM, market 
segmentation is defined as, "Process of defining and sub-dividing 
a large homogenous market into clearly 
identifiable segments having similar needs, wants, or 
demand characteristics".
Definitions of Marketing 
segmentation 
According to Philip Kotler, ” Market segmentation is the sub-dividing 
of market into homogeneous sub-sections of customers . where any sub-section 
may conceivable be selected as a market target to be reached 
with a distinct marketing mix.” 
According to W. J .Stanton, ”Market segmentation consists of taking 
the total heterogeneous market for a product and dividing information 
technology into several sub-markets or segments, each of which tends to 
be homogeneous in all significant aspects. 
Market segmentation allows a marketer to take a heterogeneous 
market , a market consisting of customers with diverse characteristics 
,needs , wants and behavior , and carve information technology up into 
one or more homogeneous markets which are made up of individuals or 
organizations with similar needs, wants and behavioral tendencies. 
marketing segmentation means “Group according to their similarity 
related to a particular product category.
McDonald’s and other marketers have found 
market segmentation to be a valuable technique for 
the following reasons: 
• Efficient use of marketing resources 
• Better understanding of customer need 
• Better understanding of the competitive situation 
• Accurate measurement of goals and performance
Market segments are groupings of two or more consumers for a 
product or service so that their needs are better served. 
Market segmentation can be designed as indicated in Fig.8.1

PRACTICAL REQUIREMENTS OF 
MARKET SEGMENTATION
Market Segmentation Strategies 
How a market is segmented is based on variables used for 
segmentation; behavioral, demographic, psychographic and 
geographical differences. 
1.Behavioral Segmentation: 
Behavioral segmentation is based on the customer's needs and 
subsequent reaction to those needs or toward the purchase of 
intended products and/or services. This study is conducted on all 
variables that are closely related to the product itself, like loyalty 
to a particular brand, cost effectiveness in terms of benefits and 
usage, circumstances responsible for the purchase, whether the 
customer is a regular, a first timer or and has the potential to 
become a customer, and whether the readiness to buy is linked to 
status.
• 2.Demographic Segmentation: 
Demographic segmentation refers to a wide study of the 
potential customers. While marketing a product many 
variables like age, gender, education, income, size of the 
family, occupation, socioeconomic status, culture and 
religion, language and nationality are taken into account. 
There are many instances where such a segmentation has 
worked very profitably, toys and clothes for every age group, 
certain food products that do well in certain counties and 
don't in some, either due to cultural or religious reasons. 
Demographic segmentation plays a vital role in determining 
whether a product can be mass marketed or designed for 
specific clientele. Dividing the market into groups based on 
variables such as age, gender family size, income, occupation, 
education, religion, race and nationality.
• 3.Psychographic Segmentation: 
Segmenting people according to their lifestyles and 
values, and how they translate into consumption or 
purchases of products of services is what psychographic 
segmentation is all about. How one's interest, opinions, 
values, attitude and the activities they perform, all affects 
how and why a group of people would lean towards one 
product more than others. A high status would translate into 
an expensive flying habit, while a thrift value will translate 
into an economy flight.
• 4.Geographical Segmentation: 
Geographical segmentation is done by dividing people 
(markets) into different geographical locations. The country, 
state, or neighborhood, the king of gentry, climate, size of a 
place segmented into size of its age wise population, etc. all 
play a role in devising market strategies. This helps the 
producer and the marketers to understand what will sell and 
what won't, for example, a market for winter wear would 
definitely not work in warm regions. Geographic 
segmentation tries to divide markets into different 
geographical units.
Strategic marketing planning 
• Strategic marketing planning involves four steps. 
1)Situation Analysis 
Situation analysis is the starting point in all planning activities ,I.e. .,where 
are we now? Information technology analyses existing marketing programmed 
and where the programmed should go in the future. Information technology 
gives information on market demand, market environment and performance. 
it enlightens us on our capabilities and limitations. Information technology 
also reviews the existing marketing mix thoroughly. 
2)Marketing Objectives and Strategies 
these at the marketing level are closely allied with corporate objectives 
and strategies. The marketing objectives translate corporate strategy is 20 per 
cent cost reduction in order to enhance profitability. This company strategy 
will now be the marketing objective and the marketing strategy may be 
payment of sales remuneration in the form of commission instead of salary.
3) Segmentation and target market 
in a new company, segmentation enables the company to identify 
potential target markets. In a running concern, management reassesses 
the choice of target markets and modifies them, if necessary. The firm 
may also reconsider segmentation strategy. Information technology has 
to ascertain sales forecast in its target markets. 
4) Marketing –mix 
A distinctive marketing –mix is now prepared to satisfy target market 
demand and attain marketing objective for each target market. 
marketing-mix and its implementation constitute the bulk of 
company’s marketing efforts. We have the best integration of product, 
price, promotion and distribution strategies.
Advantages of Segmentation 
• The main advantage of market segmentation lies in a better 
understanding of the consumer needs and behaviour so that a 
marketer can plan accordingly. In brief, market segmentation helps: 
1. Understand potential customers; 
2. Pay proper attention to particular areas; 
3. Formulate marketing programmes; 
4. Select channels of distribution; 
5. Understand competition; 
6. Use marketing resources efficiently; 
7. Advertise the products and launch sales promotion 
programmes;and 
8. Design marketing mix- product , price, place and promotion.
Limitations of Segmentation 
• Lack of information and data: some markets are poorly 
researched with little information about what customers 
want 
• Difficulty in measuring and predicting consumer behaviour: 
humans don’t all behave in the same way all of the time. 
• Hard to reach customer segments once identified: it is one 
thing spotting a segment; it is another reaching target 
customers with an effective marketing message
Methods of 
Seg-men-ta-tion 
Demographic/Geographic refers to age, sex, income, education, race, martial 
status, size of household, geographic location, size of city, and profession. 
Life stage refers to chronological benchmarking of people's lives at different 
ages (e.g., pre-teens, teenagers, empty-nesters, etc.). 
Lifestyle refers to the collective choice of hobbies, recreational pursuits, 
entertainment, vacations, and other non-work time pursuits 
Psychographics refers to personality and emotionally based behavior linked 
to purchase choices; for example, whether customers are risk-takers or risk-avoiders, 
impulsive buyers, etc. 
Belief and value systems includes religious, political, nationalistic, and 
cultural beliefs and values. 
Behavior analysis includes what behaviors consumers actually engage in 
(after all is said and done)
Market segmentation
Requirements for segmentation 
Identifiable: the differentiating attributes of the segments 
must be measurable so that they can be identified. 
Relevant/Accessible: the segments must be reachable through communication 
and distribution Question: channels. 
What are some criteria that could be used 
to ensure that a segmentation has utility? 
Substantial: the segments should be sufficiently large to justify the resources 
required to target them. 
Unique needs: to justify separate offerings, the segments must respond 
differently to the different marketing mixes. 
Durable: the segments should be relatively stable to minimize the cost of 
frequent changes.

Fashion Channel: Market 
Segmentation (Brief Case) 
• The new Senior Vice President of Marketing for The Fashion 
Channel (TFC), a cable television network dedicated to round-the-clock, 
fashion-oriented programming, is preparing to recommend a change in 
the company's traditional marketing approach by introducing a market 
segmentation program. This program is, in part, a response to the 
intensifying competitive environment for TFC, and it needs to strengthen 
the company's brand and positioning with viewers and advertisers. At the 
same time, the program must maintain consumer and distributor 
satisfaction with the network. Several segmentation options are being 
considered, each with pros and cons. Consumer research provides insights 
but does not give a simple answer regarding the best path to take. The 
reader must evaluate the research results, calculate financial scenarios, 
and make a recommendation. Also looks at change management issues. 
TFC has never done a program like this before, and the Senior Vice 
President of Marketing is new to the job. In addition to making a 
recommendation, she must manage the change process to insure that the 
organization and her leadership team peers are fully aligned.

Conclusion 
• Market segmentation: is separating a market into distinct 
groups of potential consumers who share common 
characteristics and interests and who are likely to be 
attracted to particular products or services. Segmentation 
allows you to develop products and plans which fit the 
needs of customers more efficiently. Market segmentation 
is also separating the customers into different groups, and 
sometimes can split up into different age groups because 
different age customers are interested in different things 
from the business. Market segmentation is a marketing 
approach that encompasses the identification of different 
groups of customers with different needs or responses to 
marketing activity. The market segmentation process also 
considers which of these segments to target.

J .Stanton, ”Market segmentation consists of taking the total heterogeneous market for a product and dividing information technology into several sub-markets or segments, each of which tends to be homogeneous in all significant aspects. Market segmentation allows a marketer to take a heterogeneous market , a market consisting of customers with diverse characteristics ,needs , wants and behavior , and carve information technology up into one or more homogeneous markets which are made up of individuals or organizations with similar needs, wants and behavioral tendencies. marketing segmentation means “Group according to their similarity related to a particular product category.

  • 15. PRACTICAL REQUIREMENTS OF MARKET SEGMENTATION
  • 16. Market Segmentation Strategies How a market is segmented is based on variables used for segmentation; behavioral, demographic, psychographic and geographical differences. 1.Behavioral Segmentation: Behavioral segmentation is based on the customer's needs and subsequent reaction to those needs or toward the purchase of intended products and/or services. This study is conducted on all variables that are closely related to the product itself, like loyalty to a particular brand, cost effectiveness in terms of benefits and usage, circumstances responsible for the purchase, whether the customer is a regular, a first timer or and has the potential to become a customer, and whether the readiness to buy is linked to status.
  • 17. • 2.Demographic Segmentation: Demographic segmentation refers to a wide study of the potential customers. While marketing a product many variables like age, gender, education, income, size of the family, occupation, socioeconomic status, culture and religion, language and nationality are taken into account. There are many instances where such a segmentation has worked very profitably, toys and clothes for every age group, certain food products that do well in certain counties and don't in some, either due to cultural or religious reasons. Demographic segmentation plays a vital role in determining whether a product can be mass marketed or designed for specific clientele. Dividing the market into groups based on variables such as age, gender family size, income, occupation, education, religion, race and nationality.
  • 18. • 3.Psychographic Segmentation: Segmenting people according to their lifestyles and values, and how they translate into consumption or purchases of products of services is what psychographic segmentation is all about. How one's interest, opinions, values, attitude and the activities they perform, all affects how and why a group of people would lean towards one product more than others. A high status would translate into an expensive flying habit, while a thrift value will translate into an economy flight.
  • 19. • 4.Geographical Segmentation: Geographical segmentation is done by dividing people (markets) into different geographical locations. The country, state, or neighborhood, the king of gentry, climate, size of a place segmented into size of its age wise population, etc. all play a role in devising market strategies. This helps the producer and the marketers to understand what will sell and what won't, for example, a market for winter wear would definitely not work in warm regions. Geographic segmentation tries to divide markets into different geographical units.
  • 20. Strategic marketing planning • Strategic marketing planning involves four steps. 1)Situation Analysis Situation analysis is the starting point in all planning activities ,I.e. .,where are we now? Information technology analyses existing marketing programmed and where the programmed should go in the future. Information technology gives information on market demand, market environment and performance. it enlightens us on our capabilities and limitations. Information technology also reviews the existing marketing mix thoroughly. 2)Marketing Objectives and Strategies these at the marketing level are closely allied with corporate objectives and strategies. The marketing objectives translate corporate strategy is 20 per cent cost reduction in order to enhance profitability. This company strategy will now be the marketing objective and the marketing strategy may be payment of sales remuneration in the form of commission instead of salary.
  • 21. 3) Segmentation and target market in a new company, segmentation enables the company to identify potential target markets. In a running concern, management reassesses the choice of target markets and modifies them, if necessary. The firm may also reconsider segmentation strategy. Information technology has to ascertain sales forecast in its target markets. 4) Marketing –mix A distinctive marketing –mix is now prepared to satisfy target market demand and attain marketing objective for each target market. marketing-mix and its implementation constitute the bulk of company’s marketing efforts. We have the best integration of product, price, promotion and distribution strategies.

Understand competition; 6. Use marketing resources efficiently; 7. Advertise the products and launch sales promotion programmes;and 8. Design marketing mix- product , price, place and promotion.
  • 23. Limitations of Segmentation • Lack of information and data: some markets are poorly researched with little information about what customers want • Difficulty in measuring and predicting consumer behaviour: humans don’t all behave in the same way all of the time. • Hard to reach customer segments once identified: it is one thing spotting a segment; it is another reaching target customers with an effective marketing message
  • 24. Methods of Seg-men-ta-tion Demographic/Geographic refers to age, sex, income, education, race, martial status, size of household, geographic location, size of city, and profession.

Behavior analysis includes what behaviors consumers actually engage in (after all is said and done)
  • 26. Requirements for segmentation Identifiable: the differentiating attributes of the segments must be measurable so that they can be identified. Relevant/Accessible: the segments must be reachable through communication and distribution Question: channels. What are some criteria that could be used to ensure that a segmentation has utility? Substantial: the segments should be sufficiently large to justify the resources required to target them.

  • 29. Fashion Channel: Market Segmentation (Brief Case) • The new Senior Vice President of Marketing for The Fashion Channel (TFC), a cable television network dedicated to round-the-clock, fashion-oriented programming, is preparing to recommend a change in the company's traditional marketing approach by introducing a market segmentation program. This program is, in part, a response to the intensifying competitive environment for TFC, and it needs to strengthen the company's brand and positioning with viewers and advertisers. At the same time, the program must maintain consumer and distributor satisfaction with the network. Several segmentation options are being considered, each with pros and cons. Consumer research provides insights but does not give a simple answer regarding the best path to take. The reader must evaluate the research results, calculate financial scenarios, and make a recommendation. Also looks at change management issues. TFC has never done a program like this before, and the Senior Vice President of Marketing is new to the job. In addition to making a recommendation, she must manage the change process to insure that the organization and her leadership team peers are fully aligned.

  • 35. Conclusion • Market segmentation: is separating a market into distinct groups of potential consumers who share common characteristics and interests and who are likely to be attracted to particular products or services. Segmentation allows you to develop products and plans which fit the needs of customers more efficiently. Market segmentation is also separating the customers into different groups, and sometimes can split up into different age groups because different age customers are interested in different things from the business. Market segmentation is a marketing approach that encompasses the identification of different groups of customers with different needs or responses to marketing activity. The market segmentation process also considers which of these segments to target.
