CHAPTER-1

INTRODUCTION

1.1 EXPLANATION OF THE TOPIC

Marketing plays the crucial role from planning,selling,to the satisfaction of


consumer. Really marketing is changing from “Selling the product” to “Creating a
customer”. So customer becomes the king of the present globe.
Understanding consumer behavior and knowing customer is never simple. Customer
behavior studies how individuals, groups and organization select,buy,use and dispose of
goods and services ,ideas or experiences to satisfy the needs and desires.
The most important thing is to forecast where customers are moving and to be in front of
them. To know the customer psychology market research is carried out for any existing as
well as new entrants in the field of marketing. It has become a crucial part for any
organization to conduct market survey/.research.
It is usually said that if marketing would be a train, then market research would be the

locomotive. In other words, market research should ideally be the starting point of any

marketing exercise. Conducting any marketing exercise - be it related to pricing,

promotion or distribution of a product or service, without researching the potential

market is as sensible as setting out to sell sand in the Sahara Desert.

Market research provides the answers to all the questions that generally occupy the minds

of marketers, at every stage of the marketing process.

• Will there be a demand for my product or service ?

• What should be the ideal price of my offering - one that ensures that I earn the

maximum profit ?

• Should I place my product only in urban markets or distribute even in the rural

areas ?
-2-

• What should be the preferable media to promote my offering ?

• Would it be better if I replaced the pale green packets with bright yellow ones ?

• Is the fourfold growth in my sales figures a consequence of our latest television

commercial ?

• How satisfied are our customers with the after sales services we provide ?

• What image comes to the minds of consumers when the hear our company's name

It's really crucial to understand your target market before undertaking any

marketing exercise, unless you don't mind risking your hard-earned money and

precious time on activities that might not get you the results you want.

Simply put, ignoring market research before marketing is synonymous with firing

a shot in a pitch dark room, and still hoping that the bullet hits the bulls eye.

In the insulin market there are a handful of competitors. They are playing in this field
for last long 10 years. So, it is tough for the new entrants to face their challenges. In
order to know the customers reaction about this product as well as getting information
about the competitors and their strategy a market survey was conducted by me.

1.2 REASONS FOR SELECTING THE TOPIC

 As the consumer is the king of current market, I would like to do research on


consumer behavior to gain more knowledge to attract the minds of consumer.

 I want to be part of Cadilla Diabetics Care Ltd.

1.3 IMPORTANCE OF THE TOPIC TO THE COMPANY

accordingly.

 Organization can know about the target customer by which, organization gives
more emphasis to a particular customer groups.

 Organization can get to know what the real needs of consumers are.
 Organization can get to know its position in the competitive market.
