2. INDUSTRY PROFILE

11
1. Introduction of FMCG

1.1. What is FMCG?

FMCG industry alternatively called as CPG (consumer packaged goods)


industry. Primarily deals with the production, distribution and marketing of
consumer packaged goods. The fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) is
those consumables which are normally consumed by the consumer at a
regular interval.

1.2. FMCG industry economy

The competition among FMCG manufacturers is also growing and as a result


of this, investment in FMCG industry is also increasing specifically in India,
where FMCG industry is regarded as the fourth largest sector with total
market size of USD 13.1 billion. FMCG sector in India is estimated to grow
60 % by 2010.

1.3. Common FMCG product

Some common FMCG product category include food and dairy products,
glassware, paper products , pharmaceuticals, consumer electronics ,
packaged food products, plastic goods, printing and stationery , household
products, photography, drinks etc. and some of the examples of FMCG
products are coffee, tea, dry cells, greeting cards, gifts, detergents, tobacco
and cigarettes, watches, soaps etc.

1.4. Market potentiality of FMCG industry

Some of the merits of FMCG industry which made this industry as a


potential one are low operational costs, strong distribution networks presence
of renowned FMCG companies.

Population growth is another factor which is responsible behind the success


of the industry.

12
1.5. Leading FMCG companies

 DABUR
 ITC, ETC.

2025.
 By 2020, the revenues of the sector are forecasted to reach US$ 104
billion.

13
2. Distinguishing Features of the FMCG Industry

2.1. Low Capital Intensity

Most of the product categories that come under the FMCG sector do not
require a major investment in plant, machinery and other fixed assets. Since
the investment in plants is not very high, it is highly unlikely that there
would be any product shortage due to lack of capacity. Also, the business
has low working capital intensity as bulk of sales from manufacturing take
place on a cash basis.

2.2. High Initial Launch Cost

Even though the FMCG is a low capital intensive sector, new products
requires a large front ended investment in product development, market
research, test making and launch. The biggest challenge in launching any
FMCG product is creating its awareness amongst consumers. Hence
enormous initial expenditure is spent on its advertisements, free samples and
product promotions. The launch costs in some cases as high as 50-100% of
the revenue in the first year as compared to a mere 5-12% for the existing
brands.

2.3. Technology

The basic technology for manufacturing is easily available and is also fairly
stable. Modifications and changes in technology rarely change the basic
process. Despite all this, global FMCG players pay huge amounts on
research and development (R&D) due to their ability to spread cost over the
wider base of their global operation.

2.4. Market Research

The purchase decision of any consumer is mostly influenced by the


consumer’s perception about the brand. Other factors such as changing
fashions, change in income, change in lifestyle also plays a major role in the
purchase decision. However FMCG products are rarely differentiated on
technical or functional basis. Hence market

14
Research and test marketing becomes inevitable. As a result, due to
increasing competition, companies are spending enormous amount of money
on product launches.

3. Success Factors of FMCG Products

.1. Brand Equity

Brand equity refers to the intangible asset in the form of brand names. The
consumer’s loyalty for a particular brand is due to the perception that the
product has distinctively superior and consistent quality and also satisfies
his/her specific needs. Further provides better value for money than other
competing brands.

In FMCG products, brand equities are relatively stronger as the consumer is


reluctant to try unknown brands/unbranded products as most of these
products are for personal use. It is often difficult to differentiate a product on
technical or functional grounds and therefore little reason to switch from a
known brand.

A successful brand generates strong cash flows, which enables the owner of
the brand to reinvest a part of in it form of aggressive
advertisements/promotion to keep up the superiority of the brand.

The worth of a brand is manifested in the consumer’s insistence on a


particular brand or willingness to pay a price premium for the preferred
brand.

.2. Distribution Network

In FMCG sector, one of the most critical success factors is the ability to
build, develop and maintain a robust distribution network. Availability near
consumer is vital for wider penetration as most products are low units and
are frequently purchased.

Distribution network refers to the consumer buying points where products


are available (almost always). It takes enormous time and

15
effort to build a chain of stockiest, retailers; dealers etc and establish their
loyalties. There are entry barriers for a new entrant as a new product is
typically slow moving and has lesser consumer demand. Therefore
dealers/retailers are reluctant to allocate recourses and time. Establishes
players use their established network to inhibit new entrants.

Thus the distribution factor is the most critical factor which at times even
drives the brand equity factor.

.3. Importance of Super Markets in FMCG Industry

Grocery Stores, Super Markets are the face from where the customer actually
buys his necessity products. In today’s fast moving time customers does not
want to spend much time hopping from one shop to another just to buy the
basic items, thus with the concept of Super Markets the customer is given
with all the choices and all products under one roof which minimizes his
shopping time and gives variety options at the same time. Some Big names
in these markets are: BIG BAZZAR, EASY DAY, D-MART, RELIANCE
FRESH, FOOD BAZZAR, SPENCER’S, SAFAL.

3.4. Conclusion

FMCG products are necessity products which a consumer purchases within


a short interval of time. The companies producing these products needs to
establish a strong distribution network so as to deliver the products to the
customers on time along with building a strong brand equity for its products
as competion in this industry is growing at a very fast pace. With Super
Markets like Big Bazaar, Easy Day, Reliance Fresh which keep all these
necessity products under one roof are giving tough competion to local
grocery store.

5. THEORETICAL BACKGROUND

31
Targeted Customer

Mapro Food Pvt. Ltd. has customers from a wide range of people. Mostly the
customers of the company are children as the products of Mapro are targeted for
this group only i.e. Mapro Products chocolates, jelly, jam and many more
products which are mostly liked by the children only. But this doesn’t mean that
other age groups are not covered.

Concept of Customer

This project presents an original customer satisfaction survey in the food and
beverages sector. The implemented methodology is based on the principle o
multi-criteria analysis and preference disaggregation modeling. The most results
are focused on the determination of the critical service dimension and the
segmentation to customer clusters with distinctive and expectations.

Customer

A “Customer” is one who purchases a product or service from a particular


organization. One thing that we are all customer, in fact everybody in this
world is a customer. Every day in our life we buy and consume an incredible
variety of goods and services. However, we all have different task, likes &
dislikes adopt different pattern while making purchase decision. Each customer
is unique and this uniqueness is reflected in competitive behavior and pattern
and process of purchase.

Customer satisfaction

Customer satisfaction is seen as a key performance indicator within business


and is often part of a Balanced Scorecard. In a competitive marketplace where
businesses compete for customers, customer satisfaction is seen as a key
differentiator and increasingly has become a key element of business strategy

"Within organizations, customer satisfaction ratings can have powerful effects.


They focus employees on the importance of fulfilling customers’ expectations.
Furthermore, when these ratings dip, they warn of problems that can affect sales
and profitability. . . . These metrics quantify an important dynamic. When a
brand has loyal customers, it gains positive word-of-mouth marketing, which is
both free and highly effective

32
Therefore, it is essential for businesses to effectively manage customer
satisfaction. To be able do this, firms need reliable and representative measures
of satisfaction.

"In researching satisfaction, firms generally ask customers whether their product
or service has met or exceeded expectations”. Thus, expectations are a key
factor behind satisfaction. When customers have high expectations and the
reality falls short, they will be disappointed and will likely rate their experience
as less than satisfying. For this reason, a luxury resort, for example, might
receive a lower satisfaction rating than a budget motel—even though its
facilities and service would be deemed superior in 'absolute' terms.

Purpose

Customer satisfaction provides a leading indicator of consumer purchase


intentions and loyalty. Customer satisfaction data are among the most
frequently collected indicators of market perceptions. Their principal use is
twofold.

"Within organizations, the collection, analysis and dissemination of these data


send a message about the importance of tending to customers and ensuring that
they have a positive experience with the company’s goods and services.

"Although sales or market share can indicate how well a firm is performing
currently, satisfaction is perhaps the best indicator of how likely it is that the
firm’s customers will make further purchases in the future. Much research has
focused on the relationship between customer satisfaction and retention. Studies
indicate that the ramifications of satisfaction are most strongly realized at the
extremes."

On a five-point scale, "individuals who rate their satisfaction level as '5' are
likely to become return customers and might even evangelize for the firm. (A
second important metric related to satisfaction is willingness to recommend.
This metric is defined as "The percentage of surveyed customers who indicate
that they would recommend a brand to friends." When a customer is satisfied
with a product, he or she might recommend it to friends, relatives and
colleagues. This can be a powerful marketing advantage.) "Individuals who rate
their satisfaction level as '1,' by contrast,

33
are unlikely to return. Further, they can hurt the firm by making negative
comments about it to prospective customers. Willingness to recommend is a key
metric relating to customer satisfaction

Definition

“Customer satisfaction, is defined as a Business Term, it is the measurement


of how product and services supplied by a company meet or surpass customer
expectation

Measuring Customer satisfaction

Managing customers’ satisfaction efficiently is one the biggest challenge an


organization face. The tools or methods to measure customer satisfaction needs
to be defined sophisticatedly to fulfill the desired norms. There are following
methods to measure customer satisfaction:

1) Direct Methods

Directly contacting customers and getting their valuable feedback is very


important. Following are some of the ways by which customers could be
directly tapped.

a. Getting customer feedback through third party agencies.

b. Direct marketing, in-house call centers, complaint handling department could


be treated as first point of contact for getting customer feedback. These
feedbacks are compiled to analyze customers’ perception.

c. Getting customer feedback through face to face conversation or meeting.

d. Feedback through complaint or appreciation letter.

e. Direct customer feedback through surveys and questionnaires.

Organizations mostly employ external agencies to listen to their customers and


provide dedicated feedback to them. These feedbacks needs to be sophisticated
and in structured format so that conclusive results could be fetched out. Face to

34
face meetings and complaint or appreciation letter engages immediate issues.
The feedback received in this is not uniformed as different types of customers

are addressed with different domains of questions. This hinders the analysis
process to be performed accurately and consistently. Hence the best way is to
implement a proper survey which consists of uniformed questionnaire to get
customer feedback from well segmented customers. The design of the prepared
questionnaire is an important aspect and should enclose all the essential factors
of business.

2) Indirect Method

The major drawback of direct methods is that it turns out to be very costly and
requires a lot of pre compiled preparations to implement. For getting the
valuable feedbacks the supplier totally depends on the customer due to which
they lose options and chances to take corrective measure at correct time. Hence
there are other following indirect methods of getting feedback regarding
customer satisfaction.

a. Customer Complaints

Customer’s complaints are the issues and problems reported by the customer to
supplier with regards to any specific product or related service. These
complaints can be classified under different segments according to the severity
and department. If the complaints under a particular segment go high in a
specific period of time then the performance of the organization is degrading in
that specific area or segment. But if the complaints diminish in a specific period
of time then that means the organization is performing well and customer
satisfaction level is also higher.

b. Customer Loyalty:

It is necessarily required for an organization to interact and communicate with


customers on a regular basis to increase customer loyalty. In these interactions
and communications it is required to learn and determine all individual
customer needs and respond accordingly. A customer is said to be loyal if he
revisits supplier on regular basis for purchases. These loyal customers are the
satisfied ones and hence they are bound with a relationship with the supplier.
Hence by obtaining the customer loyalty index, suppliers can indirectly measure
customer satisfaction.

35
Importance of Customer Satisfaction in an Organization

With the increase in customers demand and competition it has become lot more
importance to base your entire company on customer service. When doing this
one must first realize that every member of your organization plays an active
role in customer service. This includes both external and internal customers
within your company.

In these organizations, top management frequent contacts with external


customers. The top management uses consultative participative and supportive
management styles to get through the customers. The staff focuses on of its
attention on satisfying the customers need.
