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 todays 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


The Bajaj group came into existence during the turmoil and the heady euphoria of Indias
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 dynamic and ambitious as his
illustrious predecessors, he has been recognized for his achievements at various national
and international forums. The Waluj plant inaugurated by the erstwhile President of India
Shri Giani Zail Singh.

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 2Wheelers 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.

11

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 companys 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

optimistic of reaching the sales target of 1.4 million units for the financial year ending
