It is quite impossible for us to prepare a report without limitations. Lacking of information was
a big factor. We have to depend heavily on the various websites. As there is not that much
options for comparison with other brands that causes a problem. We conducted the survey
during our ongoing course, thus facing serious time constrains. Employees of the organization
were not that much free to share there every marketing policy. Thats why we had to serve the
market & customers, which was really tough during our ongoing courses.

2.6Current Marketing Situation


Fast food business is very profitable in Bangladesh. Therefore, PRAN cannot appeal to all buyers
in the market place or at least to all buyers in the same way. Buyers are too numerous too widely
scattered and too varied in the need and buying practices. Therefore, generally want to serve
different segments of the market. We must identify the parts of the market that it can serve best
and most profitable. It needs to design strategies to build the right relations with customers.
Firstly, we identify markets segments. We segment the market for the buyers need. Segmentation
is very important. We also segment our market occasions, user status, and usage rate.
We are focusing on buyers who have greater interest in the values they crate best. Secondly, we
will identify the target market segment. Market segmentation revels us market segments
opportunities. Beyond deciding which segments of the markets it will target, we must decide
what position is the way the mango is defined by customers on importance attributes, the place
the product occupies in customers mind relative to competing products. We selling the
competitive positioning for the the fast food product which are creating a detail marketing mix.

Marketing Strategy

The preparatory point for discussing market segmentation is mass-marketing. The market for any
product is normally made up of several segments. A market after all is the aggregate of
consumers of a given product. And, consumer (the end user), who makes a market, are of varying
characteristics and buying behaviour. There are different factors contributing for varying mind
set of consumers. It is thus natural that many differing segments occur within a market.
In order to capture this heterogeneous market for any product, marketers usually divide or
disintegrate the market into a number of sub-markets/segments and the process is known as
market segmentation.

3.1 Market Segmentation Strategy


Page | 12

Dividing a market into distinct groups of buyers who have different needs, characteristics, or
behaviors and who might require separate products or marketing programs.
At PRAN, we believe you should enjoy what you eat and still live a healthy life.
Thats why we are dedicated to make the food that people love even better. And were supporting
programs and partnerships that help to educate and induce people to make healthful choices.
To ensure best quality products reaching to the consumers, PRAN places great
importance on hygienic manufacturing processes. If we talk about the drinks category PRAN
beverage produce Juice, Fruit drinks and carbonated soft drinks.

There are four types of Segmentation for Consumer Market:


3.1.1 Geographic Segmentation: Dividing the market into different geographical units. In
Bangladesh PRAN beverage divide the market into urban, suburban, and rural.

Geographically
Urban

15%
35%

Sub-urban

50%

Rural

In Bangladesh, PRAN geographically target the urban, sub-urban, and rural areas. In the chart we
can see that they sale 50% products in urban, 35% in sub-urban and 15% in rural areas. In urban
and sub-urban areas, there are many working class and educated people .They are very health
conscious. So in urban and sub-urban areas the sales rate are high.
3.1.2

Demographic Segmentation: Dividing the market into groups based on variables


such as age, gender, family size, family life cycle, income, occupation, education,
religion, race, generation and nationality.

Page | 13

Generation; 20

Age; 30

Education; 20
income; 30

Demographic factors are the most popular bases for segmenting customer groups. In Bangladesh
PRAN demographically segment the customer market with customers age, income, education
and generation. If we talk about the age we can see that the Children and teenagers mostly like
the PRAN beverage products. The juice is very common among children and they like it. The
products are very reasonable. Rest of the people can easily afford it.

3.1.3 Psychographic Segmentation: Divides the market into different groups based on
social class, life style or personal characteristics. People in the same demographic group can
have very different psychographic makeups.

Psychographically

Lower class; 20%

Upper class; 30%

Middle class; 50%

Page | 14

In psychographic segmentation PRAN divide the market into three classes. The three classes are
upper, middle and lower classes. They sale a big portion of products to middle class customers
because in our country most of the peoples belongs from middle class. Though the price is
reasonable they also like the beverage products.
3.1.4 Behavioral Segmentation: Divides buyers into groups based on their knowledge,
attitudes, uses or responses to a product. Many marketers believe that behavior variables are the
best starting point for building market segments.

Behavioral

Loyalty Status; 23%

Ouality; 27%

Uses rate; 23%


User status; 27%

In behavioral segmentation PRAN divide the market into product quality, user status, uses rate
and the customers loyalty. Market can be segmented into light, medium and heavy product
users.

Age: PRANs primary target was only the young generation where the age may vary
from 16-27. But it is not limited within this age. It has also spread out among the children

noticeably as well as the people above 27 years


Gender: Both young boys and girls are the target market for the PRAN juice. It is not
specially made for any particular gender

Page | 15

Occupation: Occupation is not clearly defined for the target market of Pran juice;
however where the age varies within the young generation as well as children so it can
easily be understood that most of them will be whether student or doing any job or

business
Income: PRAN juice preserve 500ml, and 900 ml Orange, Mango, Cocktail Special
juices which will be totally sugar free but sweet. They keep their price relatively low than
other soft drinks and fruit juice. The whole production process is in strict conformity with
international standards, and constant research and development all products. Pran Juice

provided superior value to their customer who they promised throwing advertising.

3.2 PRAN Drinks Target Market Strategy:


PRAN Target Market is Mass Marketing. PRAN main target market people are the young ages
people who like to soft drink very much. Mostly the School, Collage and Universities going
students and the middle age people. Beside that we also focus the young generation people.
Although our main target market is young people but we also prefer the people of adult and old
ages people.
In evaluating different market segments, PRAN Company must look at three factors. company
must first collect and analyze data on current segment sales, growth rates and expected
Page | 16

profitability .PRAN company also needs to examine major structural factors that affect long run
segments attractiveness. Finally identify the companys objectives and resources. The company
should enter only segments in which it can offer superior value and gain advantage over
competitor.

Age: Age is the major determinants in targeting the consumers. PRAN reflects the
Bangladeshi culture and it represents youth. From our survey, we have found that PRAN
is most preferred in the age group between 20-25 years (85% of 100). Moreover, the
least PRAN preference comes from two age groups: 25-35 years and 35-45 years, about

1%.
Sex: Beverage is used for thirst-quenching purpose and this product is gender neutral,
meaning there is no such kind of obligation to consume the product for male or female.
However, from our survey outcome, weve found that 71% of the consumers are male

and 29% are female from 100. All the respondents are from urban location.
Occupation & Income: Consumers purchasing pattern, lifestyle and status largely
depend on their occupation and average monthly income of the family. The social class of
the target respondents was determined by their income or taking from family. PRAN is a
low involvement product and it is good enough to consume by upper and middle class.
From the survey respondents, students are the most who purchase PRAN and their
income level is less than 5000 taka. Business people, private service personnel and other
earning people consume less amount of PRAN although their income is comparatively
high than the student

Recommendation & Conclusion


Recommendation

PRAN can extend their pack sizes because there is a demand of 1 Liter from consumer
side. When it is a matter of 2 or 3 drinker, 500 ml is small and 1500 ml is big. When these
2 or 3 consumers' need a PRAN Drinks they have to switch to other brand through their
first choice is PRAN
Young age segment is comparatively bigger than other age segments. So by targeting this
segment some advertisement can be created.
Some promotions can be given for this segment thus they become more motivated to
purchase PRAN.
PRAN van sponsor to sports program in different school, colleges and university etc.
As this is a very hot season PRAN can provide cold drinks to the consumers using small
size van, like Ice-cream van.
By adding more features : If it is added more features, it could be more popular in the
market.
By adding more quality: PRAN drinks is undoubtedly a quality full product but if it is
added more quality, its relative market share could be increased.
By providing availability in everywhere: It is not available in everywhere yet. It must be
available in everywhere of the country.

By increasing distribution channel: It distribution channel is limited. It should be


increased.
