Introduction of PVC:
PVC stands for Poly Vinyl Chloride. Also called vinyl is a thermoplastic polymer. Polyvinyl chloride is the third most widely produced plastic, after polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) with a global consumption of approximately 22 million tons per annum with annual growth of 6%. Its production is expected to increase 40 million tons by 2016.

Benefits of PVC:
The most common use of polyvinylchloride (PVC) is to make pipes. PVC is used for producing high quality leakage free pipelines for conveying water, sewerage or effluent, insulating material for electric cables. Following are some advantages of these pipes:  No deposits arise like cast iron due to its low friction and smooth surface.  PVC pipes are self- extinguishing and do not support combustion.  PVC pipes are highly resistant to mineral acids, alkalis and aqueous Salt solutions. For further assistance consult our technical staff.  PVC pipes system fulfills the need of a residential, commercial and Industrial sector.  PVC pipes are light weight and only one fifth of the cast iron pipe.  PVC pipes are long life than the cost iron pipes.  PVC pipes are insect proof and mice proof.

Different Properties of PVC:


 Thermoplastic  Lightweight, toughness and durability  Low thermal conductivity  Good insulation properties  Variety of Colors  Corrosion and abrasion resistance  Weather ability

Fire retardant properties

Its compatibility with most fluids, lower cost of material handling and installation, unique combination of properties and availability of highly reliable jointing system makes it an excellent competitor in the piping world.  Vinyls low cost, versatility, unique set of properties and performance makes it the material of choice for dozens of industries such as health care, communications, aerospace, automotive, retailing, textiles and construction.

Market of PVC:
o Global Market Scenario o National Market Scenario

Global Market Scenario:


PVC is widely accepted overall in the world due to its greater advantages. As according to a survey mostly people are price sensitive, so as of its low price, long time performance and durability as compared to other alternatives available in the market it is appreciated widely. So PVC pipes are being by the larger industries like textile industry, automotive manufacturing, construction industry and other industries. Over the past few years the market for PVC is on a steady rise. Another reason that why it is been widely accepted in the market is because of its increase penetration of insulation of cables and electrical conduit pipes. However the major industries that are being focused and served more by the PVC pipes industries are construction and building industries. In the global market PVC pipes and fittings constitute the largest volume application at 50% of the marketplace. Worldwide demand for these pipes is forecasted to increase more than four percent per year. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) takes the lion's share at around 67% of the global market. Polyethylene (PE) has 20.5%, while polypropylene (PP) takes about 12.5%.

The consumption of the PVC pipes is been gradually increasing in the all over the World. In Europe, 5.5million tons of PVC was used in 2007 to make pipes. Similarly in case of USA pipe demand is projected to grow 2.5% annually to 15.5 billion feet in 2007. Its demand is increasing day by day and its seen that every year there is an increase in demand of PVC. The organizations that are manufacturing the PVC pipes in overall the world are automotive.

Imports of PVC: As the demand of PVC pipes is growing so countries started to import it from other countries for the fulfillment of need in their country. So if an organization that is manufacturing the PVC pipes must look for the opportunities in the global market and by providing the better quality pipes may got a lot of revenues from the exports. France, USA and Mexico have been the top importers of PVC pipes over the past 5 years contributing to approximately 35% of world imports.

Exports of PVC: USA, Germany and Canada are the top three exporters of PVC pipes in the last five years contributing to 32% of world exports. The company having potential of going global may select these countries for exporting their pipes.

National Market Scenario:


There are different types of materials used for piping in Pakistan such as Asbestos Cement (AC), Mild Steel (MS), Galvanized Iron (GI), Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC), Cast Iron (CI), Reinforced Concrete Cement (RCC) and Ductile Iron (DI). Majority of piping applications used in Pakistan range from 0.5 to 18 diameter sizes. In our country it is also being widely used, according to a survey 75% people of Pakistan are price conscious and due to the low cost of these PVC pipes, people are now attracting towards the substitute of GI and concrete cement that is PVC pipe. Here these pipes are used in following areas:  Water drainage and sewerage of a building  Disposal of industrial sewerage  Agriculture irrigation  Water drainage of civil engineering & roads drop down  Swimming pools  Conduits PVC Growth Potential in Pakistan: At present only the most basic PVC applications are being made in Pakistan and that also of low quality. Reasons being:  Lack of exposure in international markets  Lack of information about PVC processing and its versatility In our country there is a lot of potential in the market about PVC. Although there are a lot of small scale units that are producing PVC on small scale but the quality of that pipe is very poor. So there is need of an organization that has highly skilled staff and having modern machinery and that must focused on quality to penetrate in the market and meets the need and fulfill the expectations of the customers. If such an organization comes than there is also increase in the employment opportunities.

It is also necessary to analyze the customer that what is their need and what they want and demand. What will satisfy the consumers quality or price? For the long term relationship with the consumers what the strategies should used? These all the things being explained in this plan very briefly and practically.

Paklite PVC Includes a wide range of products including pipes and other accessories. Currently we are focusing on two basic products UPVC (Unplacticized polyvinyl chloride) pipes and fittings that would be used in houses, building, flats and multi storey building for the purpose of drainage and sewerage for the disposal of wastes. The second basic product is PVC-U Electrical Conduits pipes and its fittings that would be used in Buildings, markets, plazas, communication systems and many other locations for the installation on the electrical wires to save them from different disasters like fire, acid reaction and other chemicals. These are non conductive, easily installed, cost effective and reaction free from different reactions. The environment is also very affecting this decision of making of the two new products. Political conditions are seemed that what are the Government rules and regulations about the particular product and what type of registration is required and what are the taxes rates. Economical conditions are also very important to see that how the current economy is running, inflation rates, unemployment, interest rates and purchasing power of the people; it also includes what is the population of Pakistan, literacy rate, GDP, National Income and per capita income.

Social factors are also very important to see that what is the society to which we are serving, may be make the product that we are producing people dont give proper attention because the product does not matches their style, status or may be the substitutes that they are using is satisfying them. Technological analysis is also very necessary because with the help of this we can understand that what kind of technology is being used in our country in current era. By the introduction of automotive machinery we can get the sustainable competitive advantage and may become the market leader and get the maximum market share. SWOT analysis tells about the strengths of the company, a major strength of the company is that it has a positive brand image in the minds of the consumers. Weakness are also sensed, a weakness that is major is of low education level of the workforce and sales force. Opportunities are also analyzed, a major opportunity that get the competitive advantage by technological advancement. Threat must be sensed also because due to it we can be damaged, a major threat would be the new entry of a potential competitor. Segmentation done by us is on the basis of geography. Pakistan is a geographic area and we divide it into different segments like in the following diagram. And from these segments we target the Gujranwala. Why we target the Gujranwala not Lahore or Karachi because we think that this area is having more potential and buyers have similar needs there. Next element comes is positioning, it means that we have to introduce our product such that it will remain in the minds of the consumers. Products that we are now introducing is Paklite PVC pipes that would be available in two categories of UPVC Pipes and fittings and PVC-U Electric conduits and accessories. Pricing is done on the basis of Market Penetrating Strategy. Distribution channel that are currently been used by the company for it product PP-RC pipes and fittings. Promotional strategies should also be used for the promotion of the product like local advertisement, billboards and other mediums like sale promotions etc. Competitor analysis is also very necessary, here we see the potential competitors, direct competitors and indirect competitors. The next head is we have to see the consumer and their relationship building by providing better quality products.

Political Forces:
These forces are very important to be analyzed by the company before taking the decision of launching PVC. Our development decision may be strongly affected by political environment. Analysis of these forces includes seeing the laws, rules and regulation, government agencies and pressure groups of the current Government. Here we see what the current laws about business are and other several rules and regulations. The government agencies also affect our decisions about the launching of our new products. There are certain acts that may bind our development. The changes sudden in the political environment, policies by Government, democracy and very important terrorism may affect a lot. So we have to focus on these forces if we want to survive and get maximum advantage of the opportunities.

 Current Economic conditions  Exchange Rates  Unemployment Rate  Population Growth  Inflation Rates  Purchasing power of people  Energy crisis  Rising Energy Prices  Terrorism  GDP  National Income  Per Capita Income  Political Instability These forces are very important to judge because any one of these can harm us very badly.

Social Forces:
Social forces include a major factor that is culture of the society. If we understand the culture of a society then we can easily penetrate into them and attract the people by hitting right on their behaviors. Some of the important social forces include:

Technological Forces:
The success or failure of a product is been highly dependent on the technological forces. There are a lot of techniques used for the making of PVC pipes in Gujranwala. These may affect us because if use the plant that having less capacity per production run than we may not compete in the market as compared to the competitors. Rapid changes in the technology are being made by the competitors to get the competitive advantage on the other producers. Local producers are using single screw-extrusion machines. While to be the best quality manufacturer we have to use the technologically updated machinery having greater output capacity. We would use the twin-screw type refurbished machinery imported from Europe. In future we have the plan to import the more technologically updated machinery imported from Japan or Korea. Extruders and dies are critical component of the machinery. The import of their parts is very costly and the local industry is incapable of providing quality spare parts or repairing. So we have to give attention to these specific areas.

Evaluation of Segment Gujranwala:


The segment is selected now we have to evaluate this segment that whether it is suitable or not. We can evaluate a segment on following basis: y Size of the segment: here we see what is the size of the segment that whether it is enough to target the audience or whether we have selected the market which size is low and we can the maximum benefits that we are expecting. y Growth: the next very important point is that whether the segment has growth potential or not. If size is large than probably it must has growth potential. y Structural Attractiveness: the segment we have selected whether it contains the structural attractiveness, Gujranwala contains structural attractiveness, because it attracts the

competitors in future or it attracts now. We have selected a good structural attractive area so now we have to put more effort while introducing our products. y Company Objectives: these are also very important to see while segmenting that whether our selected segment will help to fulfill our overall company objectives. And the segment not against the company objectives. y Resources: the segment we selected is evaluated that we have enough resources to target it. We selected Gujranwala and we see that we have not enough resources to serve it well than we have to leave that segment and move to that segment that is according to our resources.

Targeting:
Here we see that we have selected the Gujranwala segment and now we are targeting it. A target market is a market which we think that the buyers here having common needs. We have selected Gujranwala now we can target it in different ways: y Undifferentiated Targeting: here we think that the whole segment is our target so we come to serve them with one offer. y Differentiated Targeting: here we consider the differences among the audience so we think that one offer is not necessary for the whole market. y Niche Marketing: here we select specific market to serve having common needs that is not served by any competitor because the size of the market is very small so it not look attractive to the competitors.

Positioning:
It is the strategy by which we say that we have to introduce our products such like that it will remain in the minds of the consumer always. We can say that a unique statement about our product that would not be forgot by the consumer.

Price:
There are several strategies for pricing. But we use that strategy that will be successful in the market. That is market Penetration, according to this strategy we keep our products prices low at start and get the maximum sales on low price, price is not enough low that it will brings loss to us but it is the price that first reach us towards breakeven. As we penetrate in the market and our product is getting by customers like hot cakes than we increases our prices slowly slowly and at last became the market leader and get the maximum market share as well. There are several other pricing strategies that we may use: y y y y y Market Skimming: charging the higher prices at the start Cost based Pricing Value Based Pricing Benchmarking Competitive parity Method

Place/ Distribution:

The strategy which is currently running for the distribution is suitable because any other strategy may cause extra cost.

Promotion:
Paklite has to promote its new products by advertising on local media like on local cable network. Advertising is the backbone of any company so by giving importance to this they can increase their sales and remind the consumer also about the company. Advertising has three main objectives y y y To inform the audience To persuade the audience To remind the audience

Paklite has to use the billboards advertisements also. A strategy can be this to buy the billboards on the city entrance location like chan da qila. Khayali bypass or pindi bypass. There are also billboards available at that place so company has to avail that opportunity.
