TANISHQ PROFILE

Evolution of Tanishq Titan came into existence in July 1984, when the Tata Group joined hands with the Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation (TIDCO) to make a foray into the watch industry. Titan started manufacturing jewellery watches and jewellery in 1994. It set up its fully integrated Rs. 400 million-jewellery plant in Hosur. The plant had the capacity to manufacture four tonnes of gold in a year. Titan launched these products under the brand name of Tanishq, in 1995. The name Tanishq, a blend of two words, 'tan' (body) and 'ishq' (love), was coined by Xerxes Desai, the Vice-Chairman and Managing Director of Titan. To change its image from a watch manufacturer to a fashion accessories manufacturer, Titan was renamed Titan Industries Ltd. in 1995. Titan scaled the capacity of its Hosur plant to 4.18 million units in 1996 to meet the domestic and international demand. From the late 1990s, Titan's commitment to the jewellery business increased. When Titan launched Tanishq in 1995, the jewellery industry in India valued at Rs 40,000 crore was mostly unorganized, with around 3.5 lakh players. Before 1992, only the Metal and Mineral Trading Corporation and the State Bank of India were allowed to import gold. In 1992, as part of economic liberalization, the government abolished the Gold Control Act

of 1962, allowing free import of gold. In 1993, private companies were allowed to enter the hitherto restricted gold and diamond mining industry. Foreign investors were allowed to hold up to 50% equity in mining ventures.

Purity of jwellrey through karat meter is still the sign of total purity. Distribution network and retailing store are in place for the company with 130 stores countrywide. Mind boggling/award winning designs have come for the company. Diversity in jewellery gold/diamond/platinum enhances the product range of the company. We also have competitive prices for the entire product ranges as compared to the competitors. • Weaknesses Capture Rs 70,000-crore Indian jewellery market. Tanishq comprises a small share of the overall Rs 70,000-crore Indian jewellery market and hence it needs to increase its market share in this huge industry. Escalated gold costs has caused lower margins is to push sales as much as possible.

• Opportunities Global markets like USA needs to be looked at. Low cost and easy to wear jewellery should jewellery designs be further promoted. Customized

should provided to the customers. Concentrate on Gen-X by having trendy jewellery. Expand retail stores in India to further increase reach. • Threats Competition from local jewellers all over India. Lack of Skilled workers in jewellery industry. Gold is no longer seen as source of investment. People are more concerned about design and luxury.

Limitations

 The survey was conducted within the limited time frame; so few shortcoming may be expected.

 The respondent’s personal bias may be another factor, which is uncontrollable.

 The finding of the survey is strictly based on the responses of the respondents. It is difficult to find the euthenics be true, so we are assuming them to be true.

 It was very difficult to explain the respondents about how to fill the questionnaire & it took time for data collection.

We have used 2 types of reaserch design they are a) Exploratory research b) Descriptive research
Marketing Research GIDC ROFEL Business School Page 29

Buying behaviour of Gold
Exploratary research because we were not knowing the actual problem faced by tanishq. So for that we did an Indepth interview of 3 person to find what are the major findings & difficulties are faced by them. We did Interview of a) Mr Bhaskar who is the senior sales manger of tanishq of south Gujarat region. In the interview we asked him diifrent question regarding the sales & their way of operation & different aspects about tanishq From the answers given by Mr Bhaskar we found that major reason why people are not turning out towards Tanishq is because of Price a bit higher & pattern availability in tanishq . he also told us the major reason why people are coming to tanishq is the quality of gold & services provided by them. He also said that people who loves the ambiance of store may affect the buying decision. Then we interviewed Mr Azad the owner of Payal jwellers of vapi town & we asked him the same questions what we asked Mr. Bhaskar. We found that a) Major people who buy gold from there are their regular customers from long time b) The people have trust on the purity of gold c) He also said that people are having bad experience of going to tanishq as the price of gold is more than what they are paying to normal retailers.
Marketing Research GIDC ROFEL Business School Page 30

Buying behaviour of Gold
d) He also said that people of vapi are more price councius & not quality concius. e) He also said that patterns which are available with them are the same or much more compared to tanishq people. From the detailed interview of these 2 people we thaught that major reasons which can effect the purchase decision of people buying gold are 1) Price 2) Quality 3) Service 4) Availability of pattern 5) Proximity to market 6) Ambiance of store

The hypothesis of these question is that the price does not effect the buying behavior of consumer that is Ho. So from the calculation we got the value of H0 as 59.8149 So when compared to tabulated value of the number that is (r1)*(c-1) gives us the tabulated value so for my question (51)*(5-1) = 16 is the degree of freedom.

The value for the 16 is 26.3 So Ho>H1 so hypothesis is rejected.

The hypothesis of these question is that the proximity does not effect the buying behavior of consumer that is Ho. So from the calculation we got the value of H0 as 21.21 So when compared to tabulated value of the number that is (r1)*(c-1) gives us the tabulated value so for my question (51)*(5-1) = 16 is the degree of freedom. The value for the 16 is 26.3 So Ho<H1 so hypothesis is accepted.

c) The people also visit Tanishq because they provide better services then the other retailers. d) The pattern are also major factor because of which people does not prefer Tanishq. e) The people says that the location of store is not affecting them to visit Tanishq.

From these we can conclude that people are more sencisitve towards price , Quality & availability of pattern. If they find these 3 things ok & they fill that this is what they wanted they will buy from there only. For people of vapi ambiance , proximity to market & service are less important.

attracted because of service they get. People are not affected with the ambiance of the shop.

Recommendation We would recommend Tanishq following things
a) The making charge is affecting their sales so they

should cut down their prices.
b) The patterns are comparative less so they should

provide more number of patterns & also should increase their market share by bringing more innovative scheme & loyalty programs.
c) People are more service conscious so they can target

young business man & young professional as they are now more in investing money in gold. d) Gold price are increasing day by day so they should increase their sales by selling biscuits of gold rather than selling more of ornaments.
