ORIENT Fan market in India


The fan market was a well developed and mature market. Fans were the 4th largest
owned consumer durable after watches, bicycles and radio sets. In the year 1993,
the electrical fan market was more than Rs 1000 crores.
The market was dominated by the top 5 brands- Orient, Orient, Crompton, Polar &
Khaitan - who controlled 70% of the market. They also enjoyed 95% awareness in
the market. However, they were gradually losing market share in a low growth
stagnating market
Where the rapid growth of the unorganized sector (10% annually) was giving them
stiff competition.

The organized fan industry had witnessed a decline of 30 per cent in production
last year because of competition from small scale units which escaped excise duty.
Despite this Orient International had sold more last year and gained market share.
The size of the market is Rs. 1,300-1,400 crores in value terms including the small
scale sector and Orient's share is half of this. On import threat from China,
company pointed out that there was duty protection of 40 per cent.

On the other hand in the plastic table and wall fans segment there may be a serious
problem as China can make them much cheaper. The company will continue to
17

focus on strategic tie ups only in fans, sewing machines, small appliances, engines
and motors, auto components, air-conditioners and exports. It has no intention to
get into white goods.

At the top end, the company has joined hands with the U.S.-based Hunter Fan
Company, biggest ceiling manufacturer in the world. It will exclusively market the
Hunter range of fans in India under the joint branding of Orient Hunter. The tie up
has enabled Orient to enter and create a high-end premium category in the ceiling
fans market.

The premium end ceiling fans costing Rs. 5,000 - 10,000 are meant for hotels,
guest houses and air-conditioned houses. The consumers can now look forward to
super premium ceiling fans with wooden blades with an option of imported
Belgian and Italian light fittings to enhance the decor of any room. Around eight
models will be introduced in the first year.
The company last year had a turnover of Rs. 400 crores and a profit of Rs. 9.8
crores. This year would witness marginal growth in the top line segment.

18

In an effort to expand its market share in the lower-end, the largest consumer
durable marketing company, Orient International is planning to launch low-cost
fans christened Zipp, shortly. The company is preparing a new marketing strategy
to enhance the market share in the domestic fan market by creating price points for
targeted customers. Without compromising on the quality, the company is planning
to offer a range of fans to suite to the needs and paying capacity of the customers.
Company has plans to launch 19 fan models between April and May 2003,
besides the company will also launch 10 models in the home appliances segments,
he added. The models include: Ceiling fans range-Opera, Optima, Sea Breeze,
Sonata Decorative, Ultimate, Zipp, Table fans range-Mist Air EX, Zipp table fan,
Pesdestal Fans range-Mist Air ultra, Mist Air Pedestal remote fan, Mist Air EX
pedestal fan.
The company last year had a turnover of Rs. 400 crores and a profit of Rs. 9.8
crores. This year would witness marginal growth in the top line segment.
On the financial front, the company hopes to achieve a turnover of over Rs 500
crore in the current year as against Rs 400 crore turnovers reported in the last year.

Research methodology
Research methodology means what are methods we are using to make a report. The
first work is to collect the data from survey method
Generally there are two methods of survey is used1) census survey methodIn this method the survey is conducted over whole population. This method
of survey is not commonly used, because the over whole population is very
difficult, complicating, expensive and time consuming..
2) sample survey methodIn this method of research a fix sample size of sample is selected from whole
population and collects the data according to them.
32

This report is based on sample survey method and till now I took the sample of 25
shopkeepers of India.

33

Data collection
Data collection means collecting the related information, which are needed to
completing that work. Generally there are four methods of data collection1) Questionnaire- it is very popular method of data collection. In this method
we write a set of questions in a paper and give to the respondent and he
himself or with the help of researcher fills up the required information.
2) Personal interview- this is the process in which the investigator personally
meet the respondent and frequently asked related questions.
3) Mail survey- in this method of research researcher send a set of questions
through mail and wait for his response.
4) Telephonic interview- here the interviewer gives the call to the respondent
and asks the questions through phone.
For this report I have used three methods of data collections:
1) Questionnaire- I met some shopkeepers and customers of Orient fans and
give them my questionnaire to fill.
2) Personal interview- I have also taken the personal interview of some of
the employees of company.
3) Telephonic interview- there was some person who didnt have time to
meet me. Them I took the telephonic interview of those personals.

ELECTRICIA

Above chart shows that, company have their two distributors in the India city. And
distributer sell product through
four mediums.
CUSTOMER
35

a) Dealers- These are big shopkeepers appointed by company. They purchase


goods in very huge amount and then sell them with the help of shopkeepers
and electricians. They also sell goods directly to the customers.
b) Shops- After the dealers distributor gives goods to small shopkeepers of all
over India according to their requirement.
c) Electricians- These are very good communicator between distributer and
customers. Because electricians are directly in touch with the customer. So
they know very well that what customer want and where they want.
Distributers maintain good relationship with electricians because electricians
gives them product directly to the customers and ignore the mediators thus
automatically the profit of distributer will increase.
d) Sales team- distributer have some sales teams with them, who are doing
direct marketing like, putting banners and hoardings, canopies, personal
selling , continuously be in the contact of existing customers and trying to
resolve there problems.

36

Some major marketing strategies of company in India city


1) Sales promotions:
For the promotion of their product company time to time give some extra
incentives, discounts and gifts to the dealers and shopkeepers as well as
customers. Sometimes these types of methods used by distributors also.
2) Margin policy:
Company try to give more amd more margins to the shopkeepers because
when a customer come to in a shop to buy a fan then it is the hand of
shopkeepers that what customer buy. Generally 70 % customer said that
show me any good fan, then it is depend on shopkeeper that which he will
promote. Defiantly he will promote that company product who will give him
more margins.
3) Quantity discount:
Company gives a quantity discount to the distributers, dealers and
shopkeepers. Company said that if you purchase this much amount then I
will provide you some extra fans, some cash discounts etc.

4) Continuous improvement:
Company continuously make some improvements in his product like a new
fan which is more power saver, introduce some new colors, change the
weight of the fans, change the design of the fans, some decorative features
etc.
5) Pricing policy:

37

Company price policy is flexible. Here flexible means not this that company
less or increase his product price, but when company see that some less price
fans come in the market, then they immediately starts discounts on his price,
start providing free gifts like watches. Cameras etc.
Distributers:
Company has two main distributer in India1) Home agent at GTB complex new market India
2) In old India

38

Competitors
Orient has a lot of competitors in India city. Some of international brands, some
national brands and lot of local brands. The main competitors of Orient are as
follows
Bajaj, Polar, Crompton, Khaitan, Hevells, Orpat, etc
And in local brand Indian, Sarvotam, etc
Top five companies of India according to his market share:
1) Crompton
2) Orient
3) Orient
4) Bajaj
5) Khaitan
This distribution clearly says that on the basis of market share Orient have 3rd
place.

39

According to the above graph 51% fan market of India capatured by only five
companies and in 49% All remaining brands are exist.

40

Company involvement
The India market in not only in hand of distributers even company also
continuously involve with it. Company appointed his 3-4 members team with each
distributer and they regularly keep their eyes in the happenings of market. They
always are in the touch of all distributers and all dealers. They always watch the
marketing process of distributers and the performance of dealers, shopkeepers and
sales teams.
They also conducted researches time to time to find out where the company is
gaining and where the company is lacking. And if lacking then why. What is the
factors due to which there competitors are able to doing well. And eventually on
the basis of their findings and conclusions they suggest the company to make
required changes in product features and there prices.

41

Benefits to the company


With the help of this report company will able to:
1) Judge his actual position in the market
2) Aware with the competitors strategy.
