INTRODUCTION TO INDUSTRY

ABOUT CERAMIC INDUSTRY


Rumors have it that the first clay tiles were produced seven to eight thousand years ago in the area now known as the Holy Land. Many sources independently verify that the actual known history of Tiles, (and the known usage of wall and floor tile coverings) can be traced back as far as the fourth millennium BC (4000 BC) to Egypt. In the early days, the tiles were hand-made, each tile was hand-formed and handpainted, thus each was a work of art in its own right. Ceramic tile was used almost everywhere on walls, floors, ceilings, fireplaces, in murals, and as an exterior cladding on buildings.

Today Ceramic tile throughout the world is not hand-made or hand-painted for the most part. Automated manufacturing techniques are used and the human hand does not enter into the picture until it is time to install the tile. They are used in an almost infinite number of ways and you dont have to consider yourself wealthy to own them. In commercial buildings, where both beauty and durability are considerations, ceramic tiles will be found, particularly in lobby areas and restrooms. In fact most modern houses throughout use Ceramic tiles for their bathrooms and kitchens and in every vital area of the premise. Ceramic tiles are also the choice of industry, where walls and floors must resist chemicals. And the Space Shuttle never leaves without its protective jacket of high tech, heat resistant tile.

OVERALL PICTURE OF THE INDUSTRY

Ceramic tiles as a product segment has grown to a sizeable chunk today at 340 Millions Square meters production per annum. However, the potential seems to be great, particularly as the housing sector, retail, IT & BPO sectors have been witnessing an unprecedented boom in recent times. The ceramic tiles sector has been clocking a robust growth of 12-15% consistently over the last few years. Today, India figures in the top 5 countries in the world manufacturing ceramic tiles. The key drivers for the ceramic tiles in India are the boom in housing sector coupled by government policies fuelling strong growth in housing sector. The retail boom in the Indian economy has also influenced the demand for higher end products. Overall the bullish growth estimates in the Indian economy has significantly influenced the growth of the Indian Ceramic tile industry. The main product segments are the Wall tile, Floor tile, Vitrified tile and Porcelain tile segments. The market shares are 35%, 53% and 12% respectively for Wall, Floor & Vitrified/Porcelain tiles. The tiles are available in a wide variety of designs, textures and surface effects. They cater to tastes as varied from rustics to contemporary marble designs in super glossy mirror finishes.

CURRENT STATUS OF THE INDUSTRY

The ceramic tiles industry in India has followed similar trends internationally which have been characterized by excess capacities and falling margins. Countries like Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Vietnam are setting up their own plants. China has emerged as a major competitor. Producers from Spain and Italy have the advantage of lower transportation costs while exporting to USA and Germany. In India, the per capita consumption is as low as 0.30 square meters per person compared to China (2 square meters per person), Europe (5 to 6 square meters per person) or Brazil (2.5 square meters per person). Rising disposable incomes of the growing middle class and 40 millions units of hosing storage hold out a great potential. A major change that took over the ceramic tiles industry, was the introduction of vitrified and porcelain tiles. These new entrant product types are said to be the tiles of the future. Internationally these tiles are already the major sellers.These category of products account for 13% of all organized sales in this industry.

RESEARCH
23

METHODOLOGY

OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY


The basic purpose of the research was to identify the position of the employees .The key objectives of the research are as follows: To know about the how they get training.

24

To know about the employees satisfaction from training. With the help of the questionnaire the company can made the important changes in the training procedure so that the company reaches towards the employee satisfaction. It helps understanding perception of the employees about the training and accordingly designs the training process. Collecting information about the training methods used in an organization. Determining and evaluating the effectiveness of the training methods in meeting the objectives of the organization.

TYPES OF RESEARCH
There are many types of the research like descriptive , analytical, applied, qualitative, action, quantitative.

Descriptive Research:
25

This research is the most commonly used and the basic reason for carrying out descriptive research is to identify the cause of something that is happening. For instance, this research could be used in order to find out what age group is buying a particular brand of cola, whether a companys market share differs between geographical regions or to discover how many competitors a company has in their marketplace. However, if the research is to return useful results, whoever is conducting the research must comply with strict research requirements in order to obtain the most accurate figures/results possible.

Analytical Research:
I also have collected data from already available information. I got the information from the newspapers with the help of that information (phone no.) I used to take appointment with the concerned person. In this research correlation technique is used to analyze the data.

Applied Research:
The research which has immediate commercial potential is called applied research. Applied research can further be classified as problem oriented and problem solving research.

QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH :
Quantitative research is used to measure how many people feel, think or act in a particular way. These surveys tend to include large samples - anything from 50 to any number of interviews. Structured questionnaires are usually used incorporating mainly closed questions - questions with set responses. There are various vehicles used for collecting quantitative information but the most common are on-street or telephone interviews.
26

QUALITATIVE RESEARCH :
Qualitative research is used to help us understand how people feel and why they feel as they do. It is concerned with collecting in-depth information asking questions such as why do you say that?. Samples tend to be smaller compared with quantitaive projects that include much larger samples. Depth interviews or group discussions are two common methods used for collecting qualitative information. ACTION RESEARCH : Action research is a methodology that combines action and research to examine specific questions, issues or phenomena through observation and reflection, and deliberate intervention to improve practice.

SAMPLE SIZE AND METHOD OF SELECTING SAMPLE


Once the researcher has clearly specified the problem and developed an appropriate design and data collection instrument, the next step in the research process is to select those elements from which the information will be collected.

27

SAMPLE SIZE
I have taken kajaria ceramics ltd. Manufacturing plant in gailpur ,bhiwadi as a sample size. I have taken personal interviews of hr manager, trainers of the employees. I took survey of about over 350 of employees (officials and labour) in the plant.

METHOD OF SELECTING SAMPLE

1. PRIMARY RESEARCH:
Under this research I have selected sample with the help of questionnaire.

2. SECONDARY RESEARCH :
Personal interviews Collection of information in a face to face situation Company magazines

SCOPE OF STUDY

Organizations find it increasingly difficult to stay competitive in todays global economy. Leaders in the workplace are using benchmarking, competency, competency models, and competency studies to help make human resource decisions, such as hiring, training, and promotions. In training and development (T&D), it is helpful for
28

competencies to focus on knowledge, skills and/or abilities. But neither the field of T&D, nor competency within the field, is static. Reported here is a careful review of literature showing the trends in competency over the past three decades in the training and development field, and provides some speculation regarding competencies needed in the near future for professionals in T&D. Two of the most apparent changes in T&D are the shift to performance improvement and the use of technology. Thus the skills, knowledge, and abilities involving these areas will continue to become increasingly necessary for T&D professionals. The survey conveyed would help the kajaria ceramics limited to make some important changes in its training and development procedures. This survey would provide some knowledge about the training procedures in human resource field and also the position of its products in comparison with others.

LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY

Most of the respondents were reluctant in giving information. It was very difficult to connect the trainees and supervisors ,as they were busy with their regular day to day activities.

29

The short period had been given, so the study does not covers the whole. There were few places which are not allowable to go in, except of regular employees.

Kajarias institutional clients in India, comprising DLF, Unitech , Mantri Group and Raheja Developers, among others, drive product off take.

WEAKNESS
Low per capita consumption (0.15 sq.mt. p.a.)as compared to developed nations.
38

Not much importance given on brand building and network thus creating hindrance for export growth.

OPPURTUNITY
The construction and Housing Boom to provide bolstering demand for ceramic tiles. The untapped rural market supported by a strong growth witnessed by Indian Agriculture provides tremendous potential for the domestic ceramic manufacturers.

THREATS
