The perfume industry in India has come of age. From a cottage industry it has become fullfledged industry in the last two decades. The industry is growing at 125 percent annually. The growth is attributed to an increase in disposable income. WITH GLOBALIZATION, liberalization and the IT revolution, living standards of the Indians have increased manifold. The demand for fashionable products has increased too. That is why; all global players are eyeing the subcontinent for business purpose. The illegal flow of lifestyle products confirm the great demand for these products in India. The affinity of the Indians for foreign goods also compels the indigenous manufacturers to tie-up with international brands to tap this segment of people. The fragrances industry is big business, very big business. It includes much more than retail sales of fragrances. Related industries such as chemical companies supply the chemicals and the fragrances are made from it. Most fragrances chemicals are synthesized from petroleum

products. Some companies formulate fragrances and flavours for other companies. Marketing and advertising are used to create and promote the image of a fragrance. The perfume industry, basically, was just a cottage industry some two decades ago. But now, due to the huge demand among the people, it has blossomed into a full-fledged industry. Recently, Alcome Perfumes and Cosmetics, declared a plan to set up a Rs. 100 crore green field perfume plant in and around Noida Special Economic Zone. The domestic perfume market is estimated to be worth Rs.300 crore and is growing at around 125 percent annually. The forecast is that it may grow at a rate of 200 percent in the coming years, with fast changing consumer behaviour and habits. Geneva-base International Fragrance association has estimated that the global perfume market is worth $ 40 billion, out of which the mass market has a 70 percent share. In this, India, China has a considerable share. With the growing demand for fragrance, the Indian perfume companies are planning to change their strategies by utilizing their resources mainly for the domestic market and a meager portion for exports. Apart from that these that these companies are also planning a multiple marketing and distribution strategy to foray into a market with huge potential. The potential is immense as the middle class is growing rapidly and disposable incomes are increasing.

LIMITATION OF STUDY

It consumes more time and requires lots of expenditure. More time is needed to do this study. Study is based on secondary data only. The quality of inventory is not compared in analysis. The analysis is based on figures present in the internal records only. The study is based on two year reports given by marketing and finance department that has its own limitation. Working environment didnt permit more involved way of collecting data.

FINDINGS

Company is maintaining zero safety stock it cause production loss. The inventory turnover is in decreasing order in 2008-09 it is 3, but in 2009-2010 it is 2.4. By ABC Analysis we can say that there is a little difference between A B & C class items so every product is important for company.

There is positive correlation between sales to inventory. The percentage of raw material from total inventory is 23.94% in 2009 and 19.73% at 2010. The percentage of finished goods, semi finished good, packaging material from total inventory is 34% ,5%,37% in 2009 but in 2010 40%, 4%, 34%. Companys aim to achieve more sale it may require huge amount of inventory in future. Company is concentrating on domestic market and first time they achieve the target of 10 crore, that is good sign of establishment of domestic market. Economic order quantity (EOQ) in year 2009 is 109.526 units EOQ for year 2010 is 320.76 units, it shows that company can place more orders at one time. There is good relationship between company and their distributors, vendors and sales executives.

SUGGESTIONS

There can be a system where in periodical review (twice in a month) of inventory could be carried out so that the inventory can be kept under control. There should be periodical review of movement of items so that any non moving items can be identified and suitable action can be done.

At present the company is maintaining zero safety stock for all items, if the safety stock is maintained for important items, delay in production can be eliminated and orders can be supplied in time which will result in a better credibility in both international and domestic market.

It has been predicted that if company is planning to achieve more sale it may require huge amount of inventory in future. So the company has to arrange capital to meet future requirement.

It is suggested that they can have close monitoring of receipts and issue for A class items in order to have control of inventory.

To increase the inventory turnover ratio by increasing the sales level and maintaining the required level of inventory.

To maintain the Re-order level, Min-stock level and Economic order quantity company should consider the demand of the product.

There should be proper communication between purchase and production department.

There is no communication from dispatch section to store department, about quantity wasted. Feedback about the quantity wasted will help the store department to forecast future requirements and to focus on minimum possible waste.

Improve the minimum value of product C up to 5%-8% in total sale value by increasing market level of these products. It helps to get min return on investment in these products as soon as possible.

There is one warehouse for keeping the finished good and packaging material and packaging material are not arranged in good manner so it should be in order wise.

CONCLUSION

Inventory control is exercise when you order an item. If you do a poor job then everything after is inventory correction GORDON GRAHAM

Inventory is the physical asset of a company that can create problem if there is shortage, while in production and also if its in excess even after production. Inventory is constantly changing as quantities are sold and replenished. Hence it can be understood that efficient inventory management can take the company to new heights and inefficient inventory management can ruin the company. Company is highly concentrated on domestic market, it increase the market level of company because trend of domestic market is changing. The study on Inventory management in SFP Sons (India) Pvt. Ltd about A BC analysis for items is predicting future inventory requirements etc. From the study it is predicted that future sales have to be achieved and inventory level have to be maintained. ABC Analysis was carried out to identify the fast moving and important items. The company has to periodically review the inventory to avoid production loss. The results of the study can be further extended for future research.
