Industry Overview:

i. India is the largest consumer of gold in the world to be followed by China and Japan. India is emerging as world's largest trading centre of this commodity with a target of US$ 16 bn. set for 2010. ii. Placed against targets to achieve 65 percent of the international market by 2010, India’s gem and jewellery industry has registered an impressive 21.33 percent growth in exports iii. India dominates the world’s cut and polished diamonds (CPD) market. In value terms, the country accounts for approximately 55 percent of global polished diamond market and nearly 9 percent of the jewellery market. According to GJEPC's provisional estimate, cut and polished diamonds registered 19.06 percent growth in exports at US$ 7.11 mn. iv. India accounts for 80-85 per cent of the world’s CPD market in volume terms, 55-60 per cent in value terms and about 90 per cent in unit terms. Other major players in the global CPD market are Belgium and Israel. v. Surat contributes 90 percent of India's total diamonds exports. vi. India's domestic branded jewellery market is estimated at US $150 bn. vii. There are 13 bullion importing banks in India. viii. India's Gem and Jewellery Exports Promotion Council (GJEPC) is aiming at turning India into an International Diamond Trading Centre. ix. Since India already enjoys 80-85 per cent of the world CPD market, scope for further growth in diamond exports is limited. Hence, if India's gems and jewellery sector is to substantially increase exports, the best bet lies in the jewellery sub-sector. Given the…...

Tanishq Positioning to Capture the Indian

...Tanishq: Positioning to Capture the Indian Woman's Heart I. Case Summary: The case study here provides us with the insight of how Tanishq has adopted different strategies to position itself as a mainstream jewelry brand and differentiate itself from the competitors, in the Indian jewelry market. GoldPlus, on the other hand which was launched nine years after Tanishq had entered the jewelry market, is also a subsidiary of the same holding company, which is targeted towards serving the customers which Tanishq was not serving, plain wedding jewelry in rural and semi -urban market. Tanishq, first started as a brand name for jewelry watch of Titan, was targeted towards the Indian high end customers. By then it was positioned as an ego satisfier. The reason for failure of Tanishq in the initial phase was that the company followed a selling concept. They made the product first and then tried to sell it. The consumer preference was not considered while designing the 18 karat jewelry. Over time Tanishq has undergone through a lot of changes in its marketing policies and strategies to position itself as a mainstream jewelry firm rather than targeting a small customers of the whole jewelry market. Tanishq, established in 1995, challenged the established family jeweler and introduced new rules in precious jewelry. Tanishq spread awareness to the public about alleged impurity in Gold jewelry across India. Tanishq introduced innovations like Karat meter, the only non-destructive means......

Tanishq Case Study

...Track the Tanishq campaign since 1995 till date. The campaign for the Tanishq brand over the years have undergone a lot of experimentation and changes, both dramatic as well as subtle changes to create the current image of that of India’s only truly national jeweler that sold gold and gem-studded jewelry in boutiques across the country. Tanishq as a brand emerged from the Titan Industries, which was instrumental in bringing a paradigm change in the Indian Watch Industry by being the first Indian Company to introduce the Quartz Watches. It had entirely changed the market scenario over a period of ten years subsequent to its entry. By the year 1995, Titan Industries was keen to launch a new design watch targeted at the very high end consumer market segment. This gave the birth of Tanishq- as the Jewelry Watch Brand. This was a brand pegged as an ego satisfier, above the mundane and utilitarian. However the Jewelry Watch Brand concept did not click with the consumer as it was perceived to be clunky in design and highly overpriced. In 1996, brand Tanishq was therefore used to offer an entirely new product range to the consumer. This was Precious studded Jewelry. Underlying logic was the possibility of capitalizing on the high pricing of studded jewelry compared to plain gold jewelry, where the gold as a commodity mindset, of the consumer did not allow too many pricing options. However selling studded jewelry required a paradigm shift of the consumer mindset......

Tanishq Trurn Around Story

...Tanishq – The Turnaround Story "When we started out we didn't think that we could achieve this, but now being jewellers to the nation doesn't seem so distant." - Tanishq COO, Vasant Nangia, in March 2000. The Unsuccessful Launch In 1995, Titan Industries, India's leading manufacturer of watches, launched the Tanishq range of gold watches and jewellery. Till then, the Indian jewellery market was to a large extent unorganized, with a few recognized names such as Tribhovandas Bhimji Jhaveri and Mehrason's. Tanishq, an entirely new concept in the Indian market, thus had to struggle hard to be accepted by the customers. Industry watchers were extremely skeptical of Tanishq and doubts were being cast over its prospects. Tanishq began by offering jewellery in the 18-carat gold range, with designs borrowed heavily from contemporary European brands. The company justified its decision saying that it wanted to be 'different' from the traditional Indian offerings. Tanishq performed very badly in the next three years, posting a huge loss in 1997-98, proving its detractors right. Jacob Kurian, Tanishq's chief operating officer admitted, "Tanishq, as a concept, was far too ahead of its times." Even if one agreed with Kurian, it could not be denied that Tanishq did commit mistakes. Analysts decreed that the company's strategies were wary. At this point, Tanishq took various steps to correct the mistakes it had committed and very soon, posted its first ever operating profit in 1999.......

...TANISHQ: A SPARKLING JOURNEY The Tanishq saga began in the early 1990’s, primarily fuelled by the fabled Tata entrepreneurial spirit and partly forced by circumstance. The splendid Titan watches success story was already up and running, and happened to need more foreign exchange to purchase the imported components and machines required to keep up with the burgeoning watch production. But with India going through a foreign exchange crisis, there was no help coming in, forcing Titan to search for a business that would earn them the required foreign currency. The first precision engineered watch, Tanishq created with 103 diamonds and pure 18 carat gold. Indian-made jewellery was already a big foreign currency earner and being strongly supported by the central government, and also happened to be a very good fit with the watch business as articles of adornment.The best known brand names in both Europe and America had watches and jewellery together, offering further proof that the two industries are intrinsically linked. It was a business with a huge wealth potential and it added a very feminine offering to Tata’s long line of products that appealed mostly to the opposite gender. It also called for an organization that inspired trust and had high order design, manufacturing, marketing and retailing skills, and Tata fit the bill on all accounts. A revolution in Gold Purity Standards across the country. Tanishq was coined from a combination of Tata/Tamil Nadu and Nishq...

Tanishq Case Study

...CASE STUDY SUMMARY. Name of Organization: Tanishq Market Segmentation is a term of Marketing theory which simply implies grouping or aggregation of the entire consumer base consisting of existing and potential buyers into groups. Segments of unique sub groups of people with common tastes and preferences within a larger customer population is identified. This aggregation is done on the basis of some defined criteria. By doing so a company can develop different products that would cater to different needs of different consumers in a better manner. Company can target different categories of consumers who perceive a particular product offering differently from other groups within the categorised market by fine tuning the products to meet the needs of the differentiated consumers. Not only can the company provide more value, it also benefits by having a better understanding about the minds of different consumers and accordingly can design and develop promotional campaigns that would be tailored to match the preferences of the different consumers, thus having a greater impact. A well planned marketing strategy would undoubtedly aim at identifying the needs of the consumers before the competition can and satisfying them better that the competition but it is not possible to satisfy all customers by treating them alike hence segmentation becomes necessary. It is essential to learn each segments commonalities demands and attributes. What makes them different from the other target......

It is like a homework task that a good advertising/marketing/sales person would always carry out before (and after) implementing the said product's advertising/marketing strategy. By collecting data with the help of research methods, the researcher can manage to understand the consumer, what he wants, when he wants it, and how he wants it. Research methodologies, more or less, aim to reveal consumers’ different perceptions of the product, in large part about the way it is advertised. The researcher wants to know how effective the advertisement is on his listeners, where the strategy falls short, and where it can improve. Ultimately, it can be said that the most important task of advertising/marketing research is to increase the sales of the product. This requires a well......
