Introduction
The mobile phone market in India is worth 130 million handsets annually. While the big boys like Nokia,
Samsung, L.G. Motorola and Sony Ericsson make up for 70% share, the market has of late seen a slew of
domestic firms such as Micromax, Karbon and Intex making large inroads and new established brands
like Videocon and Onida entering the field.
Among the domestic firms, one of the most promising brand is Micromax. Micromax, started operations
in 1991 as an embedded software design firm, but was incorporated as a company in 1998, when it
branched out as a distributor of computer peripherals such as printers, monitors, scanners from
manufacturers such as L.G., Sony Inc., Dell Corp.
Today, Micromax is one of the leading Indian Telecom Companies with 23 domestic offices across the
country and international offices in Hong Kong, USA, Dubai and now in Nepal. With a futuristic vision
and an exhaustive R&D at its helm. Micromax has successfully generative innovative technologies that
have revulutionised the telecom consumer space.
Micromax has a lot of interesting and thoughtful products to its credit on their versatile product
portfolio. It was the first to introduce:
1. Handsets with 30 days battery backup
2. Handsets with Dual SIM/Dual Standby
3. Handsets Switching Networks (GSM-CDMA) using gravity sensors
4. Aspirational Qwerty Keypad Handsets
5. Operator branded 3G handsets
6. OMH CDMA Handsets, etc.
With a 360 degree advertising and marketing strategy sketched out, the company has an optimistic
outlook for the telecom consumer space. Currently present in more than 40,000 stores across the
country, the country plans to have an aggressive market incursion to reach out to its customers through
70,000 operational stores in this year.
Micromax recently ventured into the telecommunication industry with an end-to-end solution of Fixed
Wireless Services and Wireless Data Cards.

Situation Analysis
Analyzing current situation through 2C framework:
Customers
Currently Micromax is dominating the rural market. Initially the marketing strategy of Micromax was to
target rural market. They are basically catering to the need of the customers of the rural area. For
example the first mobile Micromax introduced in rural area was having the battery backup of 30 days
which was catering to the need of the rural market of inconsistent power availability.
Competitors
Micromax knows that there are many established brands in Mobile Phones’ industry like Nokia,
Samsung, LG and several other local as well as Chinese manufacturers . Some major competitors and
their strategy and strengths are identified as below:
NOKIA – Nokia is the leader in the mobile phone industry in India (38% market share). It is dominating
the Indian market from years. Recently it is facing problems to retain its growth and sales. But the
pioneer is working hard to get out of this. For the same reason Nokia is going to use operating system of
software biggie Microsoft. So it is expected that Nokia will try to regain its lost market share.
SAMSUNG – Samsung has emerged as a very healthy and prominent competitor in the market.
Samsung is backed with the high quality and professional team in the R&D area. Innovative products
specially smart phones and Galaxy series from Samsung are ruling in the market. So it is expected that
with the increasing demand of mobile phones Samsung will try to retain and increase its market share.
APPLE – Apple is one of the most major competitors in this industry. Slick, stylish and innovative phones
of Apple are driving crazy to its users. Apple is aggressively entering Indian market with its amazing
iPhone series.
Other domestic players – Other players like Karbon, Spice, Lava etc have more or less the same
market strategy.
Chinese manufacturers – Some of the Chinese manufacturers have already entered the Indian
market. These manufacturers have priced their mobiles very low. So these manufacturers are expected
to grow as with the demand.
4
Market opportunities and issues
The Indian mobile handset market is expected to grow from a total of 151 million handsets for the
twelve month period ended December 31, 2009 to 402 million handsets for the twelve month period
ended December 31, 2014.
The growth in the Indian mobile handset market is likely to be driven by the replacement handset
market rather than new user additions. Within the replacement handset market, the medium ASP
device market is likely to grow the fastest. (Source: Analysys Mason)
Replacement cycle: The growth in the Indian mobile handset market is likely to be driven by the
replacement handset market rather than new user additions. The replacement market is expected to
grow from 118 million handsets for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2010, constituting
62.77% of overall Indian mobile handset market, to 359 million handsets for the twelve month period
ended December 31, 2014, constituting 89.30% of overall Indian mobile handset market.
3G business: 3G service is an emerging technology in India. 3G technology provides growth
opportunities through multiple avenues including up gradation to 3G compatible mobile handsets and
mobile data cards.
Value added services: Going forward, the demand for more sophisticated and innovative e-mail and
multimedia based services, as well as gaming, music and video related offerings is likely to fuel growth in
VAS. We believe the advent of 3G will also add impetus to the growth of the VAS market due to 3G's
faster network capabilities.

SWOT Analysis
Strengths:
Innovative products and features- Marathon battery mobile phones with a 30-day battery life,
phone which is programmable as a universal remote control, gravity phones are some of the features
which have increased the popularity of the product.
Low cost of production – With its plants located in China, Micromax bears a low cost in production
due to availability of labour at cheaper rates.
Effective promotion campaigns- Micromax has been promoting its products through famous
celebrities and has also had tie ups with MTV.
Weaknesses:
Weak brand image in urban areas- Micromax has still not been able to establish itself well in the
urban market as its main concentration had been on the rural population.
Perception of low-quality Chinese brand- Micromax has a manufacturing unit set up in china which
has strengthened this perception among people.
Opportunities:
Increase penetration in urban market- Since Micromax has not yet entered this market; it has a very
huge opportunity to establish itself in this market.
Entry into international markets- Micromax has the potential to make its presence felt on global
scale eventually as it establishes itself in the domestic market.
Threats:
Increasing competition from local and international players- With well established players like
Nokia, Samsung, etc Micromax faces a tough competition from these players.
Replication of business model by competitors- Micromax’s business model has been replicated by
many new players which again pose a threat to Micromax.
