Historically, mattresses have been filled with a variety of natural materials, including straw
andfeathers. Modern mattresses usually contain either an inner spring core or material such as
latex, or other polyurethantype foams.Mattresses may also be filled with air or water or a variety
of natural fibers,such as in futons. In past decades, people of India used to ma!e"buy
mattresswhich are made up of cotton or coir. Then the time brought up a diversion withthe
rubber and latex. #nd this made a way to the industriali$ation of sleepingmattress. In its
expedition, mattress observed many ups and downs in itsmar!et% still it continued to flow
forward, slowly but consistently.
It displayed ama!eover in all aspects of its si$e, shape, texture, fillings etc. &rom the materialof
essentiality today it became a symbol of luxury.&rom a handful of manufacturers, during early
'0s this product got some mar!etrecognition in early (0s. In the next ) decades over one hundred
manufacturershave entered rubberi$ed coir field. Today rubberi$ed coir products are
increasingly used in many industries notably in transport industry li!e railwaysand buses,
theatres and
auditorium. The basic raw material for - industry is the brown coir fiber and the natural latex

INTRODUCTION ABOUT THE MATTRESS
Indian consumers usually have a habit of going to store and feel the mattress by touching or
sitting on it. This is how they decide the comfort level of mattress and take their decision which
makes the offline mode of distribution more popular. Branded mattresses are broadly sold to two
end users viz. residential and institutional. Growing housing demand has been increasing the
sales of mattresses in the residential market all over the country. Whereas institutional demand is
thriving owing to an increase in construction, real estate, and tourism & hospitality sector that
requires hundreds of beds and mattresses. Hence, both residential and institutional demand is
growing in India with the rising awareness regarding mattress types and brands. Among various
sizes available, King size mattresses are the most preferred one and comfort is the important
factor.
Key Product Type
 Coir Mattress
 PU Foam Mattress
 Spring Mattress
 Others
The study starts with reviewing the earlier works in this area, the objective of the study and the
research methodology used is then delineated.
COMPANY PROFILE
Kurlon’s journey is a fine lesson in entrepreneurship. During a visit to Germany, Ramesh Pai
discovered that high-end motor car seats used rubberized coconut-coir fibre manufactured from
Sri Lankan base material. He knew that India was one of the largest producers of coconut in the
world and so, he rightly assumed, there was a new business to be pioneered. Charged with this
thought, he returned home to start his journey of discovering how best he could take advantage
of the coir husk India produced. He found that coconut coir was being used only by the cottage
industry to manufacture retted fabric. From here his idea took shape and become the predecessor
to Kurlon – Karnataka Consumer Products Limited – was formed in 1962.
He brought in Austrian technology to extract fibre from the husk and curl it into ropes. A slew of
opportunities opened up upon this craft. Rather than restrict himself to mattresses he also
developed an ancillary range of products such as cushions and mats. In 2004 it ventured beyond
providing just a better sleep experience and extended its product range into the home comfort
segment.
Kurlon Today
The company has evolved and now manufactures mattresses in 126 different configurations.
Pan-India they have partnered with a dealer network comprising more than 7000 dealers, 70
branch and stock points and 9 strategically located manufacturing facilities across Karnataka,
Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Uttaranchal and Gujarat. With state-of-the-art technology, these factors
will continue to improve the level of standards in the mattress industry and serve the growing
Indian population.

LITERATURE REVIEW
Christopher (1989) studied the shopping habits of consumers to form an idea of whether or not
the store concepts, product ranges and strategies of the companies are appropriate towards
consumer requirements. He believed that consumer behaviours are unpredictable and changing
continuously changing; while trying to under try to understand how individual or group make
their decision to spend their available resources on consumption-related items. These are factors
that influence the consumer before, during, and after a purchase (Schiffiman and Kanuk, 1997),
for example, feedback, from other customers, packing, advertising, product appearance, and
price (Peter & colsonet, 2005).
The essence of this approach is critical for organizational success, so that they can have a better
understanding of their customer behaviours (Solomon et al., 2006). The physical action or
behaviour of consumer and their buying decision every day can be measured directly by
marketers (Papanastassiu and Rouhani, 2006). For that reason many organisations these days
are spending lot of their resources to research how consumer makes their buying decision, what
they buy, how much they buy, when they buy, and where they buy (Kotler, Amstrong,
2001). To get a well coherent result, organizations normally looked at these behaviour base their
analysis on difference conceptions; whether customers buying behaviour were measured from
different perspectives, such as product quality and better service, lower price structured etc
(Papanastassiu and Rouhani, 2006)
Different theories and researchers have claimed that when organization fully meet all aspects of
its customer needs, the result enhances their profitability (Chaudhuri, 2006), and also enable
them to develop a better tackling strategies for consumer (Asseal, 1998). Possibly, the most
challenging concept in marketing deals with the understanding why buyers do what they do and
what method or philosophy are they using to evaluate the product after the transactions and what
might be the effect on future transaction (Schiffman, 2004). The reason why marketer chooses to
learning about consumers” buying behaviour is, from a business perspective; to be able to be
more effectively reach consumers and increase the chances for success (Sargeant & West,
2001). Therefore the field of consumer behaviour has taken a tremendous turn in the commercial
world and became the fundamental concepts of achieving company goal (Schiffman and
Kanuk, 2007).
Five-Stage Model of the buying process:
(Kotler 1993, p. 182)

  • 7. Historically, mattresses have been filled with a variety of natural materials, including straw andfeathers. Modern mattresses usually contain either an inner spring core or material such as latex, or other polyurethantype foams.Mattresses may also be filled with air or water or a variety of natural fibers,such as in futons. In past decades, people of India used to ma!e"buy mattresswhich are made up of cotton or coir. Then the time brought up a diversion withthe rubber and latex. #nd this made a way to the industriali$ation of sleepingmattress. In its expedition, mattress observed many ups and downs in itsmar!et% still it continued to flow forward, slowly but consistently. It displayed ama!eover in all aspects of its si$e, shape, texture, fillings etc. &rom the materialof essentiality today it became a symbol of luxury.&rom a handful of manufacturers, during early '0s this product got some mar!etrecognition in early (0s.

  • 8. INTRODUCTION ABOUT THE MATTRESS Indian consumers usually have a habit of going to store and feel the mattress by touching or sitting on it. This is how they decide the comfort level of mattress and take their decision which makes the offline mode of distribution more popular. Branded mattresses are broadly sold to two end users viz. residential and institutional. Growing housing demand has been increasing the sales of mattresses in the residential market all over the country. Whereas institutional demand is thriving owing to an increase in construction, real estate, and tourism & hospitality sector that requires hundreds of beds and mattresses. Hence, both residential and institutional demand is growing in India with the rising awareness regarding mattress types and brands. Among various sizes available, King size mattresses are the most preferred one and comfort is the important factor. Key Product Type  Coir Mattress  PU Foam Mattress  Spring Mattress  Others The study starts with reviewing the earlier works in this area, the objective of the study and the research methodology used is then delineated.
  • 9. COMPANY PROFILE Kurlon’s journey is a fine lesson in entrepreneurship. During a visit to Germany, Ramesh Pai discovered that high-end motor car seats used rubberized coconut-coir fibre manufactured from Sri Lankan base material. He knew that India was one of the largest producers of coconut in the world and so, he rightly assumed, there was a new business to be pioneered. Charged with this thought, he returned home to start his journey of discovering how best he could take advantage of the coir husk India produced. He found that coconut coir was being used only by the cottage industry to manufacture retted fabric. From here his idea took shape and become the predecessor to Kurlon – Karnataka Consumer Products Limited – was formed in 1962. He brought in Austrian technology to extract fibre from the husk and curl it into ropes. A slew of opportunities opened up upon this craft. Rather than restrict himself to mattresses he also developed an ancillary range of products such as cushions and mats. In 2004 it ventured beyond providing just a better sleep experience and extended its product range into the home comfort segment. Kurlon Today The company has evolved and now manufactures mattresses in 126 different configurations. Pan-India they have partnered with a dealer network comprising more than 7000 dealers, 70 branch and stock points and 9 strategically located manufacturing facilities across Karnataka, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Uttaranchal and Gujarat. With state-of-the-art technology, these factors will continue to improve the level of standards in the mattress industry and serve the growing Indian population. Awards Behind the triumphs at Kurlon over the years, there has been a series of awards, accolades and recognition the brand has received. These awards include the acknowledgment of its stellar role from institutions like the Coir Board, Reader’s Digest, the National Safety Council and several other distinctions. For the past sixteen years Kurlon has won the Coir Board of India’s awards for Outstanding Performance in Export of Rubberized Coir Products, the Development of the Domestic Market for Rubberized Coir and the award for being consistently the country’s largest manufacturer. In 2014, the company bagged the ShreshthaSuraksha Puraskar award from the National Safety Council of India in recognition of developing and implementing highly effective management systems and procedures and achieving outstanding performance in occupational health and safety.

  • 11. LITERATURE REVIEW Christopher (1989) studied the shopping habits of consumers to form an idea of whether or not the store concepts, product ranges and strategies of the companies are appropriate towards consumer requirements. He believed that consumer behaviours are unpredictable and changing continuously changing; while trying to under try to understand how individual or group make their decision to spend their available resources on consumption-related items. These are factors that influence the consumer before, during, and after a purchase (Schiffiman and Kanuk, 1997), for example, feedback, from other customers, packing, advertising, product appearance, and price (Peter & colsonet, 2005). The essence of this approach is critical for organizational success, so that they can have a better understanding of their customer behaviours (Solomon et al., 2006). The physical action or behaviour of consumer and their buying decision every day can be measured directly by marketers (Papanastassiu and Rouhani, 2006). For that reason many organisations these days are spending lot of their resources to research how consumer makes their buying decision, what they buy, how much they buy, when they buy, and where they buy (Kotler, Amstrong, 2001). To get a well coherent result, organizations normally looked at these behaviour base their analysis on difference conceptions; whether customers buying behaviour were measured from different perspectives, such as product quality and better service, lower price structured etc (Papanastassiu and Rouhani, 2006) Different theories and researchers have claimed that when organization fully meet all aspects of its customer needs, the result enhances their profitability (Chaudhuri, 2006), and also enable them to develop a better tackling strategies for consumer (Asseal, 1998). Possibly, the most challenging concept in marketing deals with the understanding why buyers do what they do and what method or philosophy are they using to evaluate the product after the transactions and what might be the effect on future transaction (Schiffman, 2004). The reason why marketer chooses to learning about consumers” buying behaviour is, from a business perspective; to be able to be more effectively reach consumers and increase the chances for success (Sargeant & West,
  • 12. 2001). Therefore the field of consumer behaviour has taken a tremendous turn in the commercial world and became the fundamental concepts of achieving company goal (Schiffman and Kanuk, 2007). Five-Stage Model of the buying process: (Kotler 1993, p. 182)
  • 13. RESEARCH DESIGN A research design is the arrangement of condition for collection and analysis of the data in a manner that aims to combine relevance to the research purpose with the economy in procedure.
