Retailing in Rural Market

...unprivileged class is set back by a lack of educational opportunities that could empower them to confidently pursue economic progress and overcome the debilitating effects of low literacy and rigid social hierarchies. The Indian rural retail opportunity is currently estimated to be in excess of Rs. 1400 billion (approximately US$34 billion). The figure is likely to touch Rs. 1800 billion (approximately US$ 43 billion) in 2010 and go up to Rs. 2400 billion (approximately US$ 58 billion) by 2015, according to CII - YES BANK Study on the Rural Retail Sector15. India’s rural markets are growing at double the rate of urban markets. The retail revolution is going to act as a catalyst. So, the new concept that is hitting the market today is the "Rural Retailing".

Retailing smart phone to tablets and to TV will happen sooner than later. And we want to be part of that story,” says Sharma. With presence in nine countries, Sharma at the moment is focusing on the domestic market and wants to capture all the available screens in the country. That may not be too tall a claim as the India Quarterly Media Tablet Market Review for the second quarter of this year shows Micromax has 18.4 per cent of the tablet market in India against Samsung’s 13.3 per cent and Apple’s 12.3 per cent. The company has also been inching up in the mobile segment. Apart from being the third largest player with 8 per cent share behind Nokia and Samsung, it is also the 12th largest manufacturer. The Global Handset Vendor Marketshare report from Strategy Analytics stated in the second quarter of 2011 (the latest figures available), Micromax topped the micro vendor rankings, shipping four million handsets worldwide. The numbers are impressive for a late entrant. In four years, Micromax has managed to log in sales of close to 1.5 million handsets per month. So what is the key to Micromax’ success? Experts attribute it to low pricing, unique features, focus on entry level products and a huge distribution set-up. In the tablet space, its products start at Rs 6,000 and go up to Rs 9,999. The same is evident in its LED TV launch. An entry level LED TV of 24” from Micromax costs Rs 15,990 and a full HD smart TV of 55” costs Rs 129,990. But Sharma downplays the price......

...products which make it possible to be a magnet for more customers. Yes, anchor or big-box stores are also considered as department stores. 5. What lines of retail trade do you believe will be most affected by growth of retailing on the Internet? I think the store-based line of retail trade will be the most affected by the growth of retailing on the internet because, in all honesty, Internet has the ability to reach customers anytime and anywhere. It gives more convenience and access to the consumers. 6. Why isn’t Walmart a good choice to be an anchor at a mall? Walmart isn’t a good choice to be an anchor at a mall because of the fact that it is the largest retailer in the world. It will only sort of take over the entire place or mall. This big-box retail store will eventually drive the other small and independent businesses away. If that will happen, sooner or later Walmart will kill the mall traffic. 7. How have improvements in the user-friendliness of GIS mapping technology caused retailers to become more research-driven in locating stores? Improvements in the user- friendliness of GIS mapping technology caused retailers to become more research-driven in locating their stores because the said technology has the ability to analyze and report data in a way that is visually appealing and understandable. It helps the retailers to gather business date, especially data related to location. GIS reveals the trends and opportunities that may not be detected in a......

Die Portfolio-Analyse im Allgemeinen und die BCG-Matrix im Besonderen sind in der Praxis und Lehre der strategischen Planung schon seit vielen Jahren weit verbreitet.

Sie listen nach der Beschreibung des Konzepts einige Vor-und Nachteile auf, raten aber nicht von der Anwendung ab oder empfehlen diese. Ziel dieser Hausarbeit ist es, mit Hilfe eines Praxisbeispiels die Vor- und......

... |-Diversity of rivals | | |Buyers' incentives |-Corporate stakes |  I. Rivalry In the traditional economic model, competition among rival firms drives profits to zero. But competition is not perfect and firms are not unsophisticated passive price takers. Rather, firms strive for a competitive advantage over their rivals. The intensity of rivalry among firms varies across industries, and strategic analysts are interested in these differences. Economists measure rivalry by indicators of  industry concentration. The Concentration Ratio (CR) is one such measure. The Bureau of Census periodically reports the CR for major Standard Industrial Classifications (SIC's). The CR indicates the percent of market share held by the four largest firms (CR's for the largest 8, 25, and 50 firms in an industry also are available). A high concentration ratio indicates that a high concentration of market share is held by the largest firms - the industry is concentrated. With only a few firms holding a large market share, the competitive landscape is less competitive (closer to a monopoly). A low concentration ratio indicates that the industry is characterized by many rivals, none of which has a significant market share. These fragmented markets are said to be competitive. The concentration ratio is not the only available measure; the trend is to define......

...What is Retailing?  Retailing involves selling products and services to consumers for their personal or family use.  Department stores, like Burdines and Macy's, discount stores like Wal-Mart and K-Mart, and specialty stores like The Gap, Zales Jewelers and Toys 'R' Us, are all examples of retail stores.  Service providers, like dentists, hotels and hair salons, and on-line stores, like, are also retailers.Many businesses, like Home Depot, are both wholesalers and retailers because they sell to consumers and building contractors.  Other businesses, like The Limited, are both manufactures and retailers.  Regardless of other functions these businesses perform, they are still retailers when they interact with the final user of the product or service. | | Indian retailing Retailing in India is one of the pillars of its economy and accounts for 14 to 15 percent of its GDP.[1][2] The Indian retail market is estimated to be US$ 500 billion and one of the top five retail markets in the world by economic value. India is one of the fastest growing retail markets in the world, with 1.2 billion people.[3][4] As of 2013, India's retailing industry was essentially owner manned small shops. In 2010, larger format convenience stores and supermarkets accounted for about 4 percent of the industry, and these were present only in large urban centers.

...fairly diversified businesses. In addition to its furniture products, the company operates restaurants, houses and flats. Although, firm’s main business is designing, manufacturing and selling furniture it is not so affected by the changing forces in this market as other furniture retailers. WEAKNESSES Negative Publicity. The company has been criticized many times for issues like poor treatment of employees, questionable advertising practices or lobbying government authorities. Negative publicity decreases brand reputation and customer loyalty. Low Quality of Products and Services. IKEA is unable to find compromise between continuous cost reductions while maintaining the same quality of products. According to UK Customer Insights report on IKEA by Verdict, IKEA’s customers are less satisfied with its product and services quality than the average customer in UK buying at other stores. Firm’s cost reductions lead to decreasing product quality, which was followed by higher number of products returned and damaged brand. Standard Products. IKEA’s main competitive advantage derives from low costs, which in part are achieved due to standardized products. Standardized products attract fewer customer segments. Therefore, the business inability to offer better quality more customized products allows its competitors to fill that niche and fortify their position in it. Maintain Lower Price IKEA’s products as we know are cheap. Therefore it’s hard for them to find......

...Functions of retailing From the customer point of view, the retailer serves him by providing the goods that he needs in the required assortment, at the required place and time.  1. Arranging Assortment:manufacturers usually make one or a variety of products and would like to sell their entire inventory to few buyers to reduce costs. Final consumers, in contrast prefer a large variety of goods and services to choose from and usually buy them in small units.    2. Breaking Bulk: to reduce transportation costs, manufacturer and wholesalers typically ship large cartons of the products, which are then tailored by the retailers into smaller quantities to meet individual consumption needs  3. Holding stock: Retailers maintain an inventory that allows for instant availability of the product to the consumers. It helps to keep prices stable and enables the manufacture to regulate production.  4. Promotional support: small manufacturers can use retailers to provide assistance with transport, storage, advertising, and pre- payment of merchandise.  The Retailer also serves the manufacturers by  1. Accomplishing the function of distributing the goods to the end users  2. Creating and Managing a channel of information from manufacturer to the consumer 3. Act as a final link in the distribution chain  4. Recommending products where brand loyalty is not strong or for unbranded products.

...International Marketing – 3rd Assignment Portfolio Analysis Region 4 (Italy) June 2011 1 Portfolio Analysis – The BCG Matrix The BCG Matrix is a market growth-market share matrix developed by the Boston Consulting Group, which is used to support strategic decisions in order to optimize a business portfolio with regard to new, old, innovative or established products and/or strategic business units (SBU). Its underlying theories are the experience curve as well as the product life cycle. Having classified its strategic business units, a company can develop its individual strategies for each of these SBUs. Future decisions include how to allocate investments on the SBUs, analysis about whether the respective products are still profitable or should be “killed” or given away and last but not least the need for developing new products or SBUs. The findings of the PIMS database (Profit Impact on Market[ing] Strategy) support the BCG matrix .

...------------------------------------------------- Retailing A person who can communicate well, convince people easily, and sell something right off, fit well in the retailing business. By serving as the middleperson of producers and consumers, a retailer can earn money easily by selling food, apparel, home furnishings, appliances, automobile parts, and many other kinds of goods. Retailing is selling goods directly to consumers. This entrepreneurial activity is based on the understanding that while a customer keeps buying and never lets up, there are actually certain factors that keep a retailer’s sales up. Consumables and other products with recurring sales value have to be placed regularly on the customers’ homes and ultimately on the retailers’ shelves. Types of Retailing 1. Store-based retailing – Store retailing can take form of an over-the-counter service or a self-service store, a big department store, or a small kiosk offering a variety of goods. Store retailers operate on a fixed location which can draw a lot of walk-in customers. * Supermarket a large self-service store that carries a wide variety of household, food, and laundry products. Examples are Rustan’s Supermarket, SM Supermarket, and The Landmark Supermarket. * Convenience store a retail store that is located near a residential area that is usually open 24 hours a day , 7 days a week.
