Introduction about the Industry


The Indian automotive component industry is dominated by around 500 players which
account for more than 85% of the production. The turnover of this industry has been
growing at a mammoth 28.05% per annum from 2002-03 onwards as illustrated in Fig
which clarifies its emergence
as one of India's fastest growing manufacturing sectors. During 1990s, the auto
components market in India used to be dominated by supplies to the aftermarket with
only 35% exports sourced by global Tier 1 OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers).
The industry made a sustained shift to the global Tier 1 market and today, the component
manufacturers supply 75% of their exports to global Tier 1 OEMs and the remaining to
the aftermarket. This is largely due to the growing capability of The Indian component
suppliers in understanding technical drawings, conversance with global automotive
standards, economically attractive costs (manufacturing costs are 25%-30% lower than its
western counterparts), flexibility in small batch production and growing information
technology application for design, development and simulation.

Besides The burgeoning demand of auto components from global majors, the domestic
automobile industry has been showing a sparkling growth caused by increasing customer
base and affordable loans. Based on this, the turnover of The Indian auto component
industry is expected to touch US$ 18.7 billion by 2009 and estimated to reach US$ 40
billion by 2014.

Auto Components Production Range In India

India is bestowed with excellent infrastructure for production of auto components. There
are various national and multinational companies in the country that have put up state of
art auto component manufacturing facilities. The production range of auto components in
India. For many of the auto components, steel remains the dominant material due to its
versatility providing a wide range of properties through the choice of appropriate
combination of composition and processing.

Along with The above, long term availability of raw materials, good recycling ability, a
relatively favourable price and The large experience based knowledge favour steel as a
choice for use in auto component manufacturing.

The steel requirements in general for engine parts such as fan, pulley, piston pin & oil fan
are met by low carbon steels, medium carbon steels/alloy steels based on requisite
mechanical properties are applied for crankshafts, connecting rods, rocker arm shafts e t c
. While low carbon/low carbon alloy case hardening steels are u s e d f o r
moderately/severely stressed components. Transmission parts such as input shaft, output
shaft, front axle, rear axle, kick down & reverse bands, pinion shafts, clutch discs &
plates, automatic transmission components etc. are made with medium carbon/alloy steels
while The gears are made of low carbon/low carbon alloy case hardening steels.
Suspension and steering parts such as knuckle ball studs, arm sector shafts, arm parts,
pitman & idler arms, struts, tie rod ends, ball joint studs, center link etc. are either made
of medium carbon steel or alloy steel depending upon The conferred properties, spring
steels for suspension springs while low carbon case hardening steels are applied for
components that require wear resistance. Various low carbon/low carbon alloy steels are
used for rivets, bolts, nuts & other fastener items. Steel required for chassis components
are met with cold forming & wieldable low carbon/micro alloyed steel sheets/plates while
deep drawing & extra deep drawing varieties of steel sheets are employed for body.

Steels are shaped, formed, heat treated and/or machined into automotive components
fulfilling The specific design criteria requiring critical set of properties like strength &
toughness, fatigue & fracture resistance, wear resistance, corrosion resistance etc.
Technology of machining, fabricating or forming of engineering components has
undergone rapid changes with the advent of Computer
Aided Manufacturing systems and robotics. Consequently, the auto component
manufacturers require the highest degree of consistency in the quality of the steels both
metallurgical and dimensional. Also, the changes in customer expectations for lighter,
more powerful & fuel efficient vehicles with greater degrees of reliability & safety will
continuously drive The steel industry towards development and manufacturing of steel
with closer band of metallurgical properties, physical properties, leaner alloy
compositions, higher strength to weight ratio etc. at The most competitive prices.

Today, automobile sector accounts for 7% of the total steel consumed in India. The
sparkling growth of the automotive component industry and the automobile industry in
India translates into a tremendous potential and opportunity for domestic steel producers
to cater to the needs of these industries where steel is the most vital input.

India Emerging as Hub for Auto Components Indian auto component industry is fast
emerging as an attractive OEM & Tier 1 supplier. The auto component exports from
India rose from a mere US$ 0.760 billion in 2002-03 to US$ 1.8 billion in 2005-06
showing growth @ 45.61% per annum from 2002-03 onwards. In 2005-06, about 36% of
the component exports headed for Europe, 26% for America, 16% for Asia, 10% to
Africa, 10% to Middle East, 1.5% to Oceania and others account for 0.5% of the total

Based on The sparkling growth in demand for auto components, global auto majors and
domestic giants have been investing heavily in India because of India's competitive
advantage. Accordingly, the total investment in Indian auto component industry has been
showing a tremendous growth @ 22.12% per annum from 2002-03 onwards. The
investment is expected to rise further with huge strides. Among various investments
pumping in India, auto parts maker Robert Bosch of Germany will investment US$ 201.4
million in its Indian subsidiaries over two years with bulk of investment in Motor
Industries Co. Ltd.(MICO). Hitachi Ltd. of Japan is planning to start auto component
manufacturing in India with its O E M s - I s u z u Motor & Nissan Motor to begin
manufacturing cars in India. GKN Driveline, a wing of UK based auto c o m p o n e n t
manufacturer GKN plans to open a new manufacturing facility in India. Dubai based auto
ancillary Parts International Company plans to invest about US$ 3.6 million in India over
three years which includes setting up a manufacturing facility to service exports to CIS &
SAARC countries. Fiat India has been taking

various measures to become a global sourcing hub for components by exporting

components worth US$ 8.3 million last year to its operations in South Africa and plans to
source components worth US$ 200 million. Hyundai already invested US$ 197 million to
supply transmission system, gear boxes, axles, propeller shafts and aluminium pressure
die casting products to global operations. Delphi is planning to source components such
as piston rods, steering system, drive shafts, catalytic converter, stampings in power train,
sheet metal/stampings for chassis and electrical parts like wiring harnesses & armature
motors worth US$ 250 million by 2007. General Motors which presently is sourcing
components worth US$ 6 million from Indian suppliers intends to ship parts worth US$ 1
billion for its global production units by 2010 and The components include crankshaft
forgings, radiator caps, gear boxes, leaf springs, wiring harnesses & cables. Ford Motors
plan to source components like steering columns, alloy wheels, crankshafts, exhaust
parts, complete engines for IKON model, radiators, springs, castings, forgings, leaf
springs, body panel, horns, dash board assembly, starters, alternators & door trims from
The present level of US$ 150 million to around US$ 600 million by 2009 from India.
Visteon which had already invested US$ 56 million is sourcing components for exterior,
instrument, cluster assembly & bumpers, AC system, starters, motors, alternators and
panel instrument assembly from India.

Along with this, over 20 OEMs have set up International Purchasing Offices (IPOs) in
India for components and the figure is expected to double by 2010.

Considering the above, Indian auto component manufacturers are substantially increasing
investments in production capacities, establishing partnerships in India & abroad and
have been investing in or acquiring companies overseas. In continuation with this, global
multi nationals are shifting automotive design centers into India with India evolving as an
excellent automotive R & D base for prototyping, testing, validating and production of
auto components caused by excellent IT skills & exemplary automotive domain


With increased role of outsourcing in an integrated global economy and India being
considered as a low cost automotive component producer possess a greater edge in the
global market aspiring to capture 10% share of the global market which translates into an
export target of US$20 billion by 2015. Also, by the current trends in the domestic
automotive industry, the indigenous demand for auto components is estimated to reach
US$20 billion in The next 10 years. This is expected to increase the demand for alloy
steels providing a great opportunity for alloy steel producers in the country to capitulate
on it.

What is marketing?

There are many different definitions of marketing. Consider some of The following
alternative definitions:

“The all-embracing function that links The business with customer needs and wants in
order to get The right product to The right place at The right time”

“The achievement of corporate goals through meeting and exceeding customer needs
better than The competition”

“The management process that identifies, anticipates and supplies customer requirements
efficiently and profitably”

“Marketing may be defined as a set of human activities directed at facilitating and

consummating exchanges”

Which definition is right? In short, They all are. They all try to embody The essence of
• Marketing is about meeting The needs and wants of customers;
• Marketing is a business-wide function – it is not something that operates alone from
other business activities;
• Marketing is about understanding customers and finding ways to provide products or
services which customers demand

To help put things into context, you may find it helpful to often refer to The following
diagram which summarises The key elements of marketing and Their relationships:

It is a fundamental idea of marketing that organisations survive and prosper through

meeting The needs and wants of customers. This important perspective is commonly
known as The marketing concept.

The marketing concept is about matching a Company's capabilities with customer wants.
This matching process takes place in what is called The marketing environment.

Businesses do not undertake marketing activities alone. They face threats from
competitors, and changes in The political, economic, social and technological
environment. All These factors have to be taken into account as a business tries to match
its capabilities with The needs and wants of its target customers.

An organisation that adopts The marketing concept accepts The needs of potential
customers as The basis for its operations. Success is dependent on satisfying customer

What are customer needs and wants?

A need is a basic requirement that an individual wishes to satisfy.

People have basic needs for food, shelter, affection, esteem and self-development. Many
of These needs are created from human biology and The nature of social relationships.
Customer needs are, Therefore, very broad.

Customer needs are broad, customer wants are usually quite narrow.

A want is a desire for a specific product or service to satisfy The underlying need.
Consider this example:

Consumers need to eat when they are hungry. What they want to eat and in what kind of
environment will vary enormously. For some, eating at McDonalds satisfies the need to
meet hunger. For others a microwave ready-meal meets the need. Some consumers are
never satisfied unless Their food comes served with a bottle of fine Chardonnay.

Consumer wants are shaped by social and cultural forces, The media and marketing
activities of businesses.

This leads onto another important concept - that of customer demand:

Consumer demand is a want for a specific product supported by an ability and

willingness to pay for it.

For example, many consumers around the globe want a Mercedes. But relatively few are
able and willing to buy one.

Businesses therefore have not only to make products that consumers want, but They also
have to make Them affordable to a sufficient number to create profitable demand.

Businesses do not create customer needs or The social status in which customer needs are
influenced. It is not McDonalds that makes people hungry. However, businesses do try to
influence demand by designing products and services that are

• Are available

Businesses also try to communicate The relevant features of Their products through
advertising and other marketing promotion.

The marketing mix is generally accepted as The use and specification of The four Ps
describing The strategic position of a product in The marketplace. One version of The
origins of The marketing mix starts in 1948 when James Culliton said that a marketing
decision should be a result of something similar to a recipe. This version continued in
1953 when Neil Borden, in his American Marketing Association presidential address,
took The recipe idea one step further and coined The term 'Marketing-Mix'. A prominent
marketer, E. Jerome McCarthy, proposed a 4 P classification in 1960, which would see
wide popularity. The four Ps concept is explained in most marketing textbooks and


Although some marketers have added other Ps, such as personnel and packaging, The
fundamentals of marketing typically identifies The four Ps of The marketing mix as
referring to:

Product -An object or a service that is mass produced or manufactured on a large scale
with a specific volume of units. A typical example of a mass produced service is The
hotel industry. A less obvious but ubiquitous mass produced service is a computer
operating system. Typical examples of a mass produced objects are The motor car and
The disposable razor.

Price – The price is The amount a customer pays for The product. It is determined by a
number of factors including market share, competition, material costs, product identity
and The customer's perceived value of The product. The business may increase or
decrease The price of product if other stores have The same product.
Place – Place represents The location where a product can be purchased. It is often
referred to as The distribution channel. It can include any physical store as well as virtual
stores on The Internet.

Promotion – Promotion represents all of The communications that a marketer may use in
The marketplace. Promotion has four distinct elements - advertising, public relations,
word of mouth and point of sale. A certain amount of crossover occurs when promotion
uses The four principal elements together, which is common in film promotion.
Advertising covers any communication that is paid for, from television and cinema
commercials, radio and Internet adverts through print media and billboards. One of The
most notable means of promotion today is The Promotional Product, as in useful items
distributed to targeted audiences with no obligation attached. This category has grown
each year for The past decade while most other forms have suffered. It is The only form
of advertising that targets all five senses and has The recipient thanking The giver. Public
relations are where The communication is not directly paid for and includes press
releases, sponsorship deals, exhibitions, conferences, seminars or trade fairs and events.
Word of mouth is any apparently informal communication about The product by ordinary
individuals, satisfied customers or people specifically engaged to create word of mouth
momentum. Sales staff often plays an important role in word of mouth and Public

Broadly defined, optimizing The marketing mix is The primary responsibility of

marketing. By offering The product with The right combination of The four Ps marketers
can improve Their results and marketing effectiveness. Making small changes in The
marketing mix is typically considered to be a tactical change.

Making large changes in any of The four Ps can be considered strategic. For example, a
large change in The price, say from $19.00 to $39.00 would be considered a strategic
change in The position of The product. However a change of $131 to $130.99 would be
considered a tactical change, potentially related to a promotional offer.

Market research is for discovering what people want, need, or believe. It can also involve
discovering how They act. Once that research is complete it can be used to determine
how to market your specific product. MR-Anywhere is a very good platform for market
research and analysis

For starting up a business There are a few things that are important:

Market information

Market information is making known The prices of The different commodities in The
market, The supply and The demand. Information about The markets can be obtained in
several different varieties and formats.

Examples of market information questions are:

Who are The customers?

Where are They located and how can They be contacted?

What quantity and quality do They want?

When is The best time to sell?


Market segmentation is The division of The market or population into subgroups with
similar motivations. Widely used bases for segmenting include geographic differences,
personality differences, demographic differences, use of product differences, and
psychographic differences.

Market trends

The upward or downward movements of a market, during a period of time. The market
size is more difficult to estimate if you are starting with something completely new. In
this case, you will have to derive The figures from The number of potential customers or
customer segments.

But besides information about The target market you also need information about your
competitor, your customers, products etc. A few techniques are:

Customer analysis Risk analysis

Product research Choice Modeling

Advertising research Competitor analysis


Research Methodology

1. To know the feedback of customers regarding the services which are being provided

Research can be defined to be search for knowledge or any systematic investigation to

establish facts. The primary purpose for applied research is discovering interpreting and
The development of methods and systems for The advancement of human knowledge on
a wide variety of scientific matters of our world and The universe.

Research Methodology can be defined as:

The analysis of the principles of methods, rules, and postulates employed by a discipline;

The systematic study of methods that are, can be, or have been applied within a discipline

A particular procedure or set of procedures.

3.2.1 Population

The main emphasis of the study was on the customers of MGF Hyundai in New Delhi.

3.2.2 Sample Design

Marketing research can classify in one of three categories:

Exploratory research

Descriptive research

Causal research

These classifications are made according to the objective of the research. In some cases
the research will fall into one of these categories, but in other cases different phases of
the same research project will fall into different categories.

Exploratory research has the goal of formulating problems more precisely, clarifying
concepts, gathering explanations, gaining insight, eliminating impractical ideas, and
forming hypotheses. Exploratory research can be performed using a literature search,
surveying certain people about their experiences, focus groups, and case studies. When
surveying people, exploratory research studies would not try to acquire a representative
sample, but rather, seek to interview those who are knowledgeable and who might be able
to provide insight concerning the relationship among variables. Case studies can include
contrasting situations or benchmarking against an organization known for its excellence.
Exploratory research may develop hypotheses, but it does not seek to test them.
Exploratory research is characterized by its flexibility.
● Descriptive research is more rigid than exploratory research and seeks to describe
users of a product, determine the proportion of the population that uses a product, or
predict future demand for a product. As opposed to exploratory research, descriptive
research should define questions, people surveyed, and the method of analysis prior to
beginning data collection. In other words, the who,

what, where, when, why, and how aspects of the research should be defined. Such
preparation allows one the opportunity to make any required changes before the costly
process of data collection has begun.

There are two basic types of descriptive research: longitudinal studies and cross-sectional
studies. Longitudinal studies are time series analyses that make repeated measurements of
the same individuals, thus allowing one to monitor behavior such as brand-switching.
However, longitudinal studies are not necessarily representative since many people may
refuse to participate because of the commitment required. Cross-sectional studies sample
the population to make measurements at a specific point in time. A special type of cross-
sectional analysis is a cohort analysis, which tracks an aggregate of individuals who
experience the same event within the same time interval over time. Cohort analyses are
useful for long-term forecasting of product demand.

● Causal research seeks to find cause and effect relationships between variables. It
accomplishes this goal through laboratory and field experiments.

The research associated to my project is EXPLORATORY RESEARCH.

3.2.3 Sample Size

How many people should be surveyed? Large samples give more reliable results than
small samples. However, it is not necessary to sample the entire target population or even
a substantial portion to achieve reliable results.
Samples of less than 1 percent of a population can often provide good reliability given a
credible sampling procedure.

A customer-based survey was conducted in which 100 people were asked to fill the

3.2.4 Sources of Information

Primary Sources

Secondary Sources

Primary Resources

Primary source, (also called original source), is a term used in a number of disciplines to
describe source material that is closest to the person, information, period, or idea being

Secondary Sources

In library and information science, historiography and other areas of scholarship, a

secondary source is a document or recording that relates or discusses information
originally presented elsewhere. A secondary source contrasts with a primary source,
which is an original source of the information being discussed. Secondary sources
involve generalization, analysis, synthesis, interpretation, or evaluation of the original

new entrants.

From the findings and analysis it is clear that Hyundai Car is highly preferred when
compared to the other brands of car in the same segment.

With the analysis through the survey conducted for a period of 2 months in Delhi on the
consumer satisfaction of Mgf Hyundai Car Dealer, the findings and analysis shows that
80% of the consumers are happy with the dealer and also sales service and rest 20% of
them says that they are dissatisfied.

Since each customer is like an asset for an organization the company should try to
improve in the area of dissatisfaction.

We know that getting new customer is double the cost of retaining the old customer so
the company should focus on retaining the old customers whom a in the future purchase
the product or recommend others to purchase the product. Thus they help directly or
indirectly for the product sale.

Change is the only think to retain and attract the customers so the company should
identify the needs and dry to fulfill them.


Mgf Hyundai should adopt defensive marketing strategy because as being one of the
largest car dealer in delhi market.

Hyundai must adapt new technology and train their employees.

Hyundai should adopt an offensive marketing strategy for attracting customers.

Better relationship with customers

India is 11th largest passenger car market in the world. India is the second-biggest market
for small cars after Japan. It accounts for 60 percent of the domestic market. Mgf hyundai
must bank upon this aspect.
