In this project I have made an honest and dedicated attempt to make the research material as authentic as it could. And I earnestly hope that it provides useful and workable information and knowledge to any person reading it.

During this small time frame of two months in which the project reached its completion, there were a few people whom I would like to make a mention of and without whose help the project would have never seen the light of the day. I also thank to my internal guide Mr. Ravinder Kumar for his timely response via e-mail, which immensely helped in giving the project the initial direction it needed.

I would like to thank my external guide Mr. Anurag Yadav (Marketing Manager) who gave me a free hand as far as going about the project work was concerned.

I dedicate this project to the Dealers of Bangalore district who were extremely kind and who at times went out of the way to help me. Without their co-operation it would have perhaps not been possible to research a few places, which I did, within the stipulated time frame.

We took our training at SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS LTD. Bangalore. During the training was to get an overview of the Consumer Durable Market of Bangalore district. It was a firsthand experience to get exposed to the professional set-up and face the market, which was really a great experience. Training period was a learning experience.

When business is involved, an experience counts a lot. Experience is an instrument, which leads towards success. Working with SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS LTD., has been a pleasure

I take this opportunity to present the project report and sincerely hope that it will be as much knowledge enhancing to the readers as it was to use during the fieldwork and the compilation of the report.




Before the liberalization of the Indian economy, only a few companies like Kelvinator, Godrej, Alwyn, and Voltas were the major players in the consumer durables market, accounting for no less than 90% of the market. Then, after the liberalization, foreign players like LG, Sony, Samsung, Whirlpool, Daewoo, and Aiwa came into the picture.

Today, these players control the major share of the consumer durables market. Consumer durables market is expected to grow at 10-15% in 2007-2008. It is growing very fast because of rise in living standards, easy access to consumer finance, and wide range of choice, as many foreign players were entering in the market with the increase in income levels, easy availability of finance, increase in consumer awareness, and introduction of new models, the demand for consumer durables has increased significantly. Products like washing machines, air conditioners, microwave ovens, color televisions (C-TV) were no longer considered luxury items. However, there were still very few players in categories like vacuum cleaners, and dishwashers Consumer durables sector is characterized by the emergence of MNCs, exchange offers, discounts, and intense competition. The market share of MNCs in consumer durables sector is 65%. MNC's major target is the growing middle class of India. MNCs offer


superior technology to the Consumers whereas the Indian companies compete on the basis of firm grasp of the local market, their well-acknowledged brands, and hold over wide distribution network. However, the penetration level of the consumer durables is still low in India.

Indian Consumer durables market used to be dominated by few domestic players like Godrej, Voltas, Alwyn and Kelvinator. But post liberalization many foreign companies have entered into Indian market dethroning the Indian players and dominating Indian market the major categories being CTV, REFRIGRATOR, MICROWAVE OVEN and WASHING MACHINES.

India being the second largest growing economy with huge consumer class has resulted in consumer durables as the fastest growing industries in India. LG, SAMSUNG the two Korean companies have been maintaining the lead in the market with LG being leader in almost all the categories.

The rural market is growing faster than the urban market, although the penetration level is much lower .The CTV segment is expected to the largest contributing segment to the overall growth of the industry. The rising income levels double-income families and consumer awareness were the main growth drivers of the industries.



The Consumer Durables industry consists of durable goods and appliances for domestic use such as televisions, refrigerators, air conditioners and washing machines. Instruments such as cell phones and kitchen appliances like microwave ovens were also included in this category. The sector has been witnessing significant growth in recent years, helped by several drivers such as the emerging retail boom, real estate and housing demand, greater disposable income and an overall increase in the level of affluence of a significant section of the population. The industry is represented by major international and local players such as BPL, Videocon, Voltas, Blue Star, MIRC Electronics, Titan, Whirlpool, etc.

The consumer durables industry can be broadly classified into two segments: Consumer Electronics and Consumer Appliances. Consumer Appliances can be further categorized into Brown Goods and White Goods. The key product lines under each segment were as follows.

Industry Size, Growth, Trends

The consumer durables market in India was estimated to be around US$ 5 billion in 2007-08. More than 7 million units of consumer durable appliances


have been sold in the year 2006-07 with colour televisions (CTV) forming the bulk of the sales with 30 per cent share of volumes. CTV, refrigerators and Air-conditioners together constitute more than 60 per cent of the sales in terms of the number of units sold.

In the refrigerators market, the frost-free category has grown by 8.3 per cent while direct cool segment has grown by 9 per cent. Companies like LG, Whirlpool and Samsung have registered double-digit growth in the direct cool refrigerator market.

In the case of washing machines, the semi-automatic category with a higher base and fully-automatic categories have grown by 4 per cent to 526,000 units and by 8 per cent to 229,000 units, respectively. In the air-conditioners segment, the sales of window ACs have grown by 32 per cent and that of split ACs by 97 per cent.

Since the penetration in the urban areas for these products is already quite high, the markets for both C-TV and refrigerators were shifting to the semi-urban and rural areas. The growth across product categories in different segments is assessed in the following sections.


Consumer Electronics

The CTV production was 15.10 million units in 2007-08 and is expected to grow by at least 25 per cent. At the disaggregated level, conventional CTV volumes have been falling while flat TVs have grown strongly. Market sources indicate that most CTV majors have phased out conventional TVs and have been instead focusing more on flat TVs. The flat segment of CTVs now account for over60 per cent of the total domestic TV production and is likely to be around 75 per cent in 2009-10. High-end products such as liquid crystal display (LCD)and plasma display CTV grew by 400 per cent and 150 percent respectively in 2009– 10 following a sharp decline in prices of these products and this trend is expected to continue. The audio/video player market has seen significant growth rates in the domestic market as prices have dropped. This trend is expected to continue through 2010- 2011, as competition is likely to intensify to scale and capture the mass market.




SAMSUNG – Introduction

Vision 2020

As stated in its new motto, Samsung Electronics' vision for the new decade is, "Inspire the World, Create the Future."

This new vision reflects Samsung Electronics’ commitment to inspiring its communities by leveraging Samsung's three key strengths: “New Technology,” “Innovative Products,” and “Creative Solutions.” -- and to promoting new value for Samsung's core networks -- Industry, Partners, and Employees. Through


these efforts, Samsung hopes to contribute to a better world and a richer experience for all.

As part of this vision, Samsung has mapped out a specific plan of reaching $400 billion in revenue and becoming one of the world’s top five brands by 2020. To this end, Samsung has also established three strategic approaches in its management: “Creativity,” “Partnership,” and “Talent.”

Samsung is excited about the future. As we build on our previous accomplishments, we look forward to exploring new territories, including health, medicine, and biotechnology. Samsung is committed to being a creative leader in new markets and becoming a truly No. 1 business going forward.

Our Mission

Everything we do at Samsung is guided by our mission: to be the best “digital-Company”.

At Samsung, we follow a simple business philosophy: to devote our talent and technology to creating superior products and services that contribute to a better global society.


Every day, our people bring this philosophy to life. Our leaders search for the brightest talent from around the world, and give them the resources they need to be the best at what they do. The result is that all of our products—from memory chips that help businesses store vital knowledge to mobile phones that connect people across continents— have the power to enrich lives. And that’s what making a better global society is all about.

Samsung grew into a global corporation by facing challenges directly. In the years ahead, our dedicated people will continue to embrace many challenges and come up with creative ideas to develop products and services that lead in their markets. Their ingenuity will continue to chart Samsung’s course as a profitable, responsible global corporation.



From its inception as a small export business in Taegu, Korea, Samsung has grown to become one of the world’s leading electronics companies, specializing in digital appliances and media, semiconductors, memory and system integration. Today Samsung’s innovative and top quality products and processes are world recognized. This timeline captures the major milestones in Samsung’s history, showing how the company expanded its product lines and reach, grew its revenue and market share, and has followed its mission of making life better for consumers around the world.

The DNA of Digital Innovation

Samsung Electronics is a global leader in semiconductors, telecommunications, digital media and digital convergence technologies with 2004 parent company sales of US$55.2Bn and net income of US$10.3Bn. Employing approx. 113,000 people in over 90 offices in 48 countries, the company has of 5 main business units: Digital Appliance Business, Digital Media Business, LCD Business, Semiconductor Business and Telecommunication Network Business. Recognized as one of the fastest growing global brands, Samsung Electronics Corporation is the world’s largest producer of Colour Monitors, Colour TVs, Memory Chips and TFT LCD’s.

Samsung in India

Samsung India is the hub for Samsung's South West Asia Regional operations. The South West Asia Headquarters, under the leadership of Mr. J S Shin, President & CEO, looks after the Samsung business in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Maldives and Bhutan besides India. Samsung India which commenced its operations in India in December 1995 enjoys a sales turnover of over US$ 1Bn in just a decade of operations in the country.

Headquartered in New Delhi, Samsung India has widespread network of sales offices all over the country . The Samsung manufacturing complex housing manufacturing facilities for Colour Televisions, Mobile phones, Refrigerators and


Washing Machines is located at Noida, near Delhi. Samsung 'Made in India' products like Colour Televisions, Mobile phones and Refrigerators are being exported to Middle East, CIS and SAARC countries from its Noida manufacturing complex. In November 2007, Samsung commenced the manufacture of Colour televisions and LCD televisions at its state–of-the-art manufacturing facility at Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu. The Company is also manufacturing fully automatic front loading washing machines at its Sriperumbudur facility.

Customized products for Indian Consumers

Samsung understands the local cultural sensibilities to customize its products according to the Indian market. It has set up a “usability lab” at the Indian Institute of Technology in New Delhi to customize Samsung products to meet the specific needs of Indian consumers. This industry-institute partnership is helping Samsung to study and analyze consumer response in aspects of product design, including aesthetics, ergonomics and interface.

Through its research done on consumer preferences in India, Samsung has concluded that Indian consumers want more sound oriented products. Thus, the Samsung televisions for India have a higher sound capacity than their foreign counterparts.


For the semi-automatic segment of Samsung washing machines, Samsung has introduced for the first time in India a feature called Super Dry. It is present in three of Samsung’s semi automatic models and dries the clothes better than the rest.

Samsung washing machines have an additional menu that takes care of the local Indian wardrobes. They also have a ‘memory re-start’ that takes care of the frequent power failures in India.

Research methodology is considered as the nerve of the project. Without a proper well-organized research plan, it is impossible to complete the project and reach to any conclusion. The project was based on the survey plan. The main objective of survey was to collect appropriate data, which work as a base for drawing conclusion and getting result.

Therefore, research methodology is the way to systematically solve the research problem. Research methodology not only talks of the methods but also logic behind the methods used in the context of a research study and it explains why a particular method has been used in the preference of the other methods

Research design

Research design is important primarily because of the increased complexity in the market as well as marketing approaches available to the researchers. In fact, it is the key to the evolution of successful marketing strategies and programmers. It is an important tool to study buyer’s behavior, consumption pattern, brand loyalty, and focus market changes. A research design specifies the methods and procedures for conducting a particular study.


According to Kerlinger, “Research Design is a plan, conceptual structure, and strategy of investigation conceived as to obtain answers to research questions and to control variance.

Research design specifies methods and procedures for study. In this study the company was interested to know the demand of different consumer durable product, about competitors, and potential for SAMSUNG procedures to be used for the study among retailers/dealer and. However it was exclusively personal interview.

Data Collection:

This report was prepared after collecting data from the retailers/ dealers and past data was arranged from the various studies conducted in last few years and various other records of company.

Primary Data:

These data were collected by personal interview with retailers/ dealer. For this purpose questionnaires were prepared in such that all necessary data would be collected.


Secondary Data:

Information regarding the project, secondary data was also required. These data were collected from various past studies and other sources of the company.


Random Sampling method

This project gives us great exposure to the consumer durable market because it includes product knowledge and field survey job in which we visited the consumer durable stores in Bangalore district.

While visiting the Dealers we:

1. Calculated the display share of the SAMSUNG product in shop.

2. Collected the data of actual monthly sale of the SAMSUNG product in few shop.

3 Found out the problems that the dealer were facing while selling the SAMSUNG products.

4. Found out the customer response for SAMSUNG products by asking the owner of the shop.



1. In term of purchasing power parity (PPP), India is the 4th largest economy in the world and overtake Japan in the near future become the 3rd largest.

2. Indian consumer durable market is expected to reach $450 billion by on 2010

3. India has the youngest population amongst the major countries. There were lot of people in the different income categories nearly the two third population is below the age of 35 and nearly 50% is below 25.

4. There were 56 million people in middle class, who were earning us$4,400-US$21,800 a year. And there were 6 million rich household in India.

5. The upper-middle and high-income household in urban areas were expected to grew to 38.2 million in 2007 as against 14.6 million in 2000.


1. In India the penetration level of white goods is lower as compared to other developing countries.


3. Rapid urbanization.

4. Increase in income level, i.e. increase in purchasing power of consumers.

5. Easy availability of finance.


1. Higher import duties on row materials.

2. Cheap imports from Singapore, China and from other Asian countries.


Although I tried my best in preparation of this project, but this study has some limitation:

1. The period of the project was not sufficient to study all the factors in deep.

2. Visiting various places for the study consumed a lot of time.

3. We cannot say that what the consumer have revealed will be right for each and every situation because their perception is influenced by many factors.


4. Many consumer and dealers/retailers showed less interest in providing information and haven’t cooperated.

5. Some of confidential information viz. credit period, schemes, policies and sales figure were not disclosed by the competitors.







Scope of market research in view of modern global business

Research methods provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to solve the problems and meet the challenges of a fast-paced decision-making environment. Business research courses are a recognition that students in business, not-for-profit, and public organizations – in all functional areas – need training in the scientific method and its application to decision making. Two factors stimulate an interest in more scientific decision making: (1) the manager’s increased need for more and better information and (2) the availability of improved techniques and tools to meet this need.

During the last two decades, we have witnessed dramatic changes in the business environment. Emerging from a historically economic role, the business organization has evolved in response to the social and political mandates of national public policy, explosive technology growth, and continuing innovations in global communications. These changes have created new knowledge needs for the manager. Other knowledge demands have arisen from problems with mergers, trade policies, protected markets, technology transfers, and macroeconomic savings – investment issues.


The trend toward complexity has increased the risks associated with business decisions, making it more important to have a sound information base. Increased complexity means there are more variables to consider. The competition is more vigorous, with many businesses downsizing to make competitive gains. Workers, shareholders, customers, and the public are better informed and more sensitive to their self-interest. Government continues to show concern with all aspects of society. Each of these factors demands that managers have more and better information upon which to base decisions.

To do well in such an environment, you will need to be equipped with an understanding of scientific methods and a means of incorporating them into decision making. You will need to know how to identify good research and how to conduct it. This book addresses these needs.

As the complexity of the business environment has increased, there has been a commensurate, increase in the number and power of the tools to conduct research. There is vastly more knowledge in all fields of management. We have begun to build better theories. The computer has given us a quantum leap in the ability to deal with problems. New techniques of quantitative analysis take advantage of this power. Communication and measurement techniques have also been enhanced. These trends reinforce each other and are having a massive impact on business management.



The sources may be classified as either internal (organizational) or external sources of information.

Internal Sources

Internal sources of organizational data are so varied that it is difficult to provide generalizations about their use. Accounting and management information systems create and store much of the internal data. Research and development, planning, and marketing functions also contribute. Examples are departmental reports, production summaries, financial and accounting reports, and marketing and sales studies. The collection methods used are unique to the specific situation, and collection success depends on knowing just where and how to look. Sometimes the information may exist in central files (i.e., at headquarters), in computer database, or in departmental chronological files.

In other organizations, a central library keeps all relevant information. Systematic searches should be made through exploratory interviews with everyone who handles the information. Often company librarians, MIS, PR/communications, or departmental secretaries can help in pinpointing critical data sources. Internal data sources may be the only source of information for many studies.


External Sources

External sources are created outside the organization and are more varied than internal sources. There are also better defined methods for finding them. This discussion is restricted to published sources, although other sources of information may be useful.

Published sources of data can be classified into five categories. The newest and fastest growing one is computerized database. They are composed of interrelated data files. The files are sets of records grouped together for storage on some medium. Access may be through online search or CD-ROM. Online databases are often specialized and focus on information about a particular field. Major source of published information consists of diverse materials from special collections. Within this category there are many reference books, each a compendium of a range of information. A second group includes university publications, of which there are master’s theses, doctoral dissertations, and research records. A third group includes company publications such as financial reports, company policy statements, speeches by prominent executives, sales literature, product specifications, and many others. There are miscellaneous information sources consisting of the productions of various trades, professional and other associations. These organizations often publish statistical compilation, research report, and proceeding of meeting.
