PREFACE
Management education talks of synchronizing the theoretical studies with practical

application in the most effective way. The training figure prominently in the course

curriculum as it imparts practical knowledge to the student aspiring to accomplish

professional insight. It actually gives a feel about what is happening in life and industry

around. It grooms an individual to find himself fit in the corporate world. Students

eventually come out with much confidence, knowledge and matured attitude and outlook.

In today’s competitive world, Marketing Research forms a key player. To me, it is an

orderly and insightful process of thinking about and planning for the market. This process

is applicable to more than just goods and services. I think that anything can be researched

– ideas, events, organization, place, personalities etc. and that motivated me to choose

this as a specialized subject. This particular process starts with entering deep inside the

relevant market place to understand its dynamics and to identify opportunities to meet the

felt or infelt needs.

COMPANY PROFILE

&INTRODUCTION
CO.PROFILE & INTRODUCTION

The Bajaj group came into existence during the turmoil and

the heady euphoria of India’s freedom struggle. Jamnalal

Bajaj, founder of the Bajaj Group, was a confidante and

disciple of Mahatma Gandhi, and was deeply involved in the

effort for freedom. The integrity, dedication,

resourcefulness and determination to succeed which are

characteristics of the company today, are often traced back

to its birth during those long days of relentless devotion to a

common cause. Kamalnayan, the eldest son of Jamnalal

Bajaj, succeeded his father in 1942, at the age of twenty-

seven. Putting the Nation before business, he devoted

himself to the latter only after India achieved independence

in 1947. But when he did so, he put his heart and soul into

it. Within a short while, he not only consolidated the group,

but also diversified into various manufacturing activities,

elevating the Group to the status it enjoys till this day.

Rahul Bajaj today heads the group. He has been the Chief
Executive Officer of Bajaj since 1968 and is recognized as

one of the most outstanding business leaders in India. As

TWO- WHEELERS MARKET SHARE


The auto two-wheeler segment has been witnessing a

mixed trend in year 2004. During the first seven months,

the scooter volumes dipped and there was a sudden spurt in

the motorcycle sales. However there was some deviation

from this trend during October 2001 when the scooter sales

stated picking up due to launch of new variants by Bajaj

Auto Ltd., But on the whole the motorcycle market

continued to prop up domestic 2- Wheelers sales whereas

scooters and moped sales maintained their downward trend

in fiscal 2004.

The sales of motorcycle segment remained buoyant in Dec

2001 and the major three players have reported an average

growth of 55% in their sales volumes. Bajaj Auto Ltd. Has

been the outperformed in the motorcycle segment followed

by Hero Honda Motors Ltd. And TVS Motor Company Ltd.

(formed after the break-off with Suzuki Motor Corporation,

Japan)With the whopping 85% growth in the motorcycle


sales Bajaj Auto Ltd. Is the second biggest manufacturer of

motorcycles.

The company’s recent indigenous launch in 4-stroke

segment viz.; the 150/180 cc ‘Pulsar’ has been the major

contributor to motorcycle sales alongwith its other popular

models such as Boxer ‘,’ Caliber Croma etc. the company is

also refocusing on scooter sales and has launched the 150cc

‘Legend NXT2’ and 4-stroke version of ‘Chetak’ recently. BAL

aims to reach a target of 0.6 million units by the end of

fiscal 2004.

Hero Honda has posted a negative sales growth of

8.75% from last month November 2003 which is attributed

to lower registrations for new purchases by the customers

in the last month of the year. With the rising rural demand

the company is optimistic of reaching the sales target of 1.4

million units for the financial year ending March 2004-05.

PRICES

Pricing is an important component of marketing mix of firm.

Determining the prices of different products of a firm is a

very difficult task of the marketing manager. Price denotes

money value of a product. It represents the amount of

money for which a product can be exchanged. In other

words, prices represents the money which the buyer pays to

the seller for a product price represents the exchange value

of goods and services in terms of money. Price is all around.

manufactures. The manufactures (Bajaj) are charging very

comparatively cheaper prices then their competitors. The

pricing strategy of the company is very set. They price their

product according to the cost of production and also by

keeping an eye on the price of the competitors of that

segment & demand of the product in the market.
