different car brands.

There is a sufficient of data analysis and conclusions


are given in the research paper.
On the basis of feedback through questionnaire and
observation method, I find out that the Hubli-
Dharwad consumer has changed their strategy
towards the products and starts to purchase them on
the basis of their quality.
As the result, there is close competition between the
companies.
The each of them are increasing their products,
qualities, and looks and providing better services
everyday.

Our analysis is based on sample results. It was a


difficult task to gather the information from
respondents by meeting them personally in order to
get questionnaire filled. There was a lot of time
pressure and sometimes unwillingness of respondents
to respond.

CHAPTER.1
Introduction

There was a time when the car companies ignores in


the market, they took no any interest to produced or
sell products in the market in India. It was the initial
stage of car companies in India. As per as the time
had passed, the strategy and marketing style of car
companies had been changed.
DESIGN OF THE STUDY

The design of the study determines the steps to be


followed to conduct the study and the important
topics, which are to be covered in the study.

This research is carried out as per the steps of


market research process. To meet the objectives
primary research is undertaken.

A detailed design of the study is considered to be


necessary in order to compare the actual theory with
that observed in picture.

The basic study on attempt has been made to


separate the various respondents on basis of their age,
income, education, profession and external factors.

Statement of the problem


A study to Study impact of TATA Nano launch on
purchase in Hubli-Dharwad City.

It is to know the opinion of the consumer about


the Tata Nano car.

Objectives

There are following objectives of the


project:-

• To study which brand car is doing well in the


Hubli – Dharwad market.
• To know the details of the impact of the Nano in
Hubli- Dharwad market
• To know the consumer behavior and their
willingness to buy TATA Nana car
Need for the Study

In those days, the car market is the one of the best


opportunity for the A segment car sector in the India.
It is wider and less competitive market for the car. As
the income
Level of the consumers increasing, the demand of car
is increasing continuously. The various need of the
study is given as follows:-

To determine the raising demand of Tata Nano cars


in Hubli-Dharwad cities.

Know about the different choices of cars consumers.


RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

SAMPLE DESIGN

SAMPLE UNIT: - All working people are included


both the genders i.e. males and females irrespective
of their education level.

SAMPLE SIZE: - 230

SAMPLE REGION: - Hubli-Dharwad

SAMPLING PROCEDURE: - Random Sampling


DATA COLLECTION METHOD
PRIMARY DATA

Primary data was collected through a self


administrated questionnaire. This questionnaire aims
to gather information related to various Branded cars

SECONDARY DATA

Secondary data was collected through magazines,


research papers, internet etc.

Data collection
Questionnaire design
As the questionnaire is self administrated one, the
survey is kept simple and user friendly. Words used
in questionnaire are readily understandable to all
respondent. Also technical jargons are avoided to
ensure that there is no confusion for respondents.

Definition of the Problem


The study of opportunity for car companies in the
market is a sum total of different analytical survey of
different car companies in the hubli-dharwad area. In
one sense, we can say that it is determination of how
much market captured by different car companies

Changing lifestyles

Rising per capital income, increased literacy and fast


urbanization have caused fast growth and change in
demand patterns. The rising aspiration levels,
increase in spending power has led to a change in the
consumption pattern.

Hypothesis
I am also a citizen of rural area. I use my experiences
and perceptions as hypothesis towards to made this
project.

Geographical area of study

This geographical area is concerned to the where I


conducted serve to analyze which is the best car
brand in the twin city’s.

I conducted serve in the serve in Hubli–Dharwad


City’s areas like Gokul road, CBT, Aruna colony,
Navanagar, Maruti nagger, Sirur park circle, etc. In
Dharwad geographical areas like NTTF, Vidyagiri,
Shivagiri, Vidyaranagar, Anandnagar, N R Stadium
etc.

Limitations
While surveying I encounter with some problems like
some people were not willing to respond and few of
them who responded were in hurry hence the active
participation was lacking.

Due to which we faced difficulties in collecting


information regarding our questionnaire.

Another problem which we face was that people were


hesitating to give information about their opinion.
Except it, the sample size we have taken for survey
was small and it’s a difficult task to draw accurate
conclusion or reach to an exact result on the basis of
limited sample size. Moreover, our investment was
limited and time was also less to go in depth.
Threats to us are that- as people were hesitating to
give their opinion and details so there is chance of
error regarding opinion.

CHAPTER.2
An over view of study
Hubli-Dharwad market is one of the best
opportunities for the car sector. In some sense we can
say that Hubli-Dharwad market is future of cars. The
lifestyle of Hubli-Dharwad consumers is changing.

The Indian market and the marketing strategy have


become the latest marketing buzzword for most of
the car majors. They added the strategies of different
car companies for capturing Hubli-Dharwad market
like Maruti, Hyundai, Mahendra, Honda, Ford, Bajaj,

According to one of the survey, the economic growth


in India's agricultural sector in last year was over 7%,
compared with 3% in the industrial sector. This
implies a huge market potentiality for the marketer to
meet up increasing demand.

Factors such as strong distribution network and


market awareness are few prerequisites for making an
impression in the cars market.
The characteristics of the market in terms of low and
spread out population and limited purchasing power
make it a difficult market to capture.

The Bottom of the pyramid marketing strategies and


the 4 A's model of Availability,
Affordability, Acceptability and Awareness provide
us with a means of developing appropriate strategies
to tackle the market, it is a study of different car
companies used by Hubli-Dharwad consumers. It will
provide information about consumer’s preferences
towards a good car company which is too unique and
different from those above researches.

CHAPTER.3

Opinion of study

After a good deal of consumer survey and marketing


research, I have collected a good collection of data.
The analyses of those data’s are given as follows:-
In the initial years, the Hubli-Dharwad consumers
preferred A’s segment cars etc. but from the last
period of five years, the preference of Hubli-Dharwad
consumers towards cars has been changed.

An extremely large number of cars of different


companies are selling in Hubli-Dharwad market. The
Hubli-Dharwad consumer’s preference towards the
different car brands are given in following:

CHAPTER.4

Benefits of the study

The result which we get after doing the survey and


doing all the data analysis etc. it will considered as
effective Market leader and growth on market and as
well as Competitors and we can measure the people
confidence about the TATA group.

Findings

 Promotional activities are not carried out


 Major customers are professional and middle
class people
 There is more scope for TATA Nano car and
about the TATA group

SUGGESTIONS

Employees should be increased in number to


concentrate more attentively towards customer.

Giving good service and quick respond towards the


complaint is also increasing the sales and usage.

Finally I hope TATA service is very good better then


the other car companies.

The Hubli-Dharwad market is very large in compare


to the market as well as it is more challenging
market.
The consumer wants those products which are long-
lasting, good, easy to use and cheaper.

It is necessary for all the car major companies to


provide those products, which are easy to available
and affordable to the consumers. It is right that the
profit margin is very low in the Nano products, but at
the same time the market size is much large in the
Hubli-Dharwad cities, as well as in India the
companies can improve their product by increases the
costs on the advertising because the Hubli-Dharwad
consumers need attractive colors and service.
Application of 4A* is also a major task for the major
companies in this area.

(*4A= Availability, Affordability, Acceptability,


Awareness)

CONCLUSION
There is wide scope for TATA Nano car because now
days the standard of living style increasing day by
day and also the car rate also very less compares to
the other A’s segment cars so people are interested to
buy the Nano car. The banks also providing car loans
for middle class people it is also one of the reasons
for increasing in the sales.

As I has analyzed the various data based on


questionnaire, a fact has came into light that Tata’s
products are the most known and popular Brand in
context of home car products in Hubli-Dharwad
market followed by Tata indica, Tata somo and Tata
indigo, Tata somo victa.

Because of extremely large product line, cheaper


cost, brand loyalty, good publicity and advertisement,
the Hubli-Dharwad consumers generally prefers the
products of Tata’s in all segments. Except it, people
firstly prefer for good quality and comparatively low
prices products.
