One sector in Pakistan that has grown considerably in the past is the Home Appliances
Division. There is great competition in this sector and PEL has survived this
competition with great flair. PEL enjoys good reputation in the market for its home

PEL is in a growth phase in this sector. This sector carries a lot of potential and PEL
can capitalize on this fact.
My stay at PEL was very beneficial due to the fact that I got the opportunity to learn
the trends in the market in this sector. The company takes it as a liability to take care of
its employees. The corporate culture at PEL was very healthy and induced work habits.
This atmosphere helped me in building self-confidence and belief. At PEL I had an
opportunity to deal directly with the customers and find out their demands and
problems associated with PEL. I got to know about the trend in the industry and also
conducted a research through which I got a better understanding of the consumer
buying behavior.
I also got a chance to improve my decision-making skills. Further more, working at
PEL also helped me in becoming a better time-managed person. I got to know the
importance of teamwork at the work place.

In the end, all the experience that I have gained during my stay at PEL has helped me a
lot in becoming a better organized person and will definitely help me in becoming an
even better person in the future. I can say this with out doubt that the values that I have
gained while working at PEL will be applied to wherever I go to work in the future.

Pak Electron Ltd. (PEL) was established in 1956 with the technical collaboration of
M/S AEG Germany and is the oldest composite electrical equipment manufacturing
unit in Pakistan.
In October 1978 the company was taken over by the SAIGOL GROUP, which is one
of the leading industrial and commercial groups of Pakistan. The products
manufactured by PEL have always been of a high standard and the name “PEL is
synonymous with quality all over Pakistan.” PEL, since its inception, has been acting
as an institution working for the advancement and development of engineering and
modern technology in Pakistan
Since its inception, the company has been working for the advancement and
development of engineering know-how in Pakistan. The company has produced
hundreds of engineers and skilled workers and technicians through its apprenticeship
schemes & training programs.
PEL has been continuously adding new products to its range. As a result, PEL has
registered a significant increase in its sales volume, during the last ten years
In 1978, the Saigol Group of Companies purchased major shares of Pak Electron
Limited. At that juncture, the company was only manufacturing transformers and
switchgears. With the Saigols in management, PEL started expanding its product range
by entering into Air Conditioner manufacturing.
In 1981, PEL window type air conditioners were introduced in technical collaboration
with General Corporation of Japan.
In 1986-87, the company started manufacturing of refrigerators in technical
collaboration with M/s IAR-SILTAL of Italy.
In 1987, PEL deep freezers were also introduced in technical collaboration with M/s
Ariston of Italy.

In 2006, the Company has started manufacturing of split type air conditioners of
various capacities as the customer choice has shifted from window type to split type.
The product has been well received in the market. This encourages the company to
multiply its production in the coming year.
Today, PEL has become a household name. Its products are not only in great
demand in the local market but the Company has started exporting its appliances
division products.

Pak Electron Limited (PAEL or PEL) is the pioneer manufacturer of electrical goods in
Pakistan. The company is listed on all the three stock exchanges of Pakistan. Its
principal activity is manufacturing and sale of electrical capital goods and domestic
appliances.But now, PEL is operating a single business entity without any


In Lahore Factory, Refrigerators, Transformers, Energy Meters, and Switchgears

are produced. Previously, Window AC and Deep freezers were also produced in
Lahore Factory but PEL quit these operations. However, PEL has restarted the
production of Deep freezers once again at Lahore factory.

There are following departments in the Factory of PEL:

• Production department.
• Research and development.
• Quality control department.
• Human resources department.
• Marketing department.
• Finance department.

The company comprises two divisions:

 Appliances Division.
 Power Division.

PEL’s Appliances Division is the flag carrier of the Saigol Group involved in home
appliances manufacturing.

 Air conditioners.
 Refrigerator.
 Deep freezers.
 Microwave oven.
 Washing machine.
 Generators.
PEL Power Division manufactures energy meters,

Threat of Substitute

The final out come of the research was that PEL has lost its competitive edge
when it comes to other brands. I shall now discuss why is this so in the light of the
Porter’s Five Forces Model. These five forces are following.

 The risk of new entry by potential competitors

 Rivalry among established firms
 The bargaining power of the buyer
 The bargaining power of the supplier
 The threat of substitute products


Pak Electron Limited Change your Life

The direct competitors of PEL are Dawlance, Waves, LG, and Haier etc. The Dawlance
is market leader in the refrigerator and PEL is still on second number. But in window
room air conditioner (WRAC) the PEL is market leader

Total market sale of refrigerator in 2003 was 367000 units. Last year sale was 256900
units. These figures show 30% market growth. But the average growth was 13% to
17%. And the PEL sale growth is 70%, which is a great achievement.
 Dawlance is a market leader in refrigerator with 46% share.
 PEL has 32% market share.
 Waves has 11% market share.
 11% shares are others.

PEL is a market leader with a market share of about 60% in local manufacturing
industry. And overall has 35% market shares for this product.
 LG has about 32% market share and stands on number two.
 And rest of the manufacturers have 23% marker share.

Indirect Competitors:
The indirect competitors for PEL in this industry are Samsung, Orient, Mitsubishi,
Sabro, Nobel and others Chinese brands available in the market. The PEL has no big
threat from all these companies. But the Sabro pioneer for introducing the split air
conditioner in Pakistan. Now days the sabro has lost its market share to other
companies for the business of Split AC.


• High Investments.
Threat for new entrants is high in this industry, partly due to the fact that this industry
is a lucrative industry and is very attractive for foreign companies. But in order to
really make a mark in this industry, you need to have strong investment and funding.
For this matter, PEL is at risk of the influx of foreign investments in this sector.

Pak Electron Limited Change your Life

• Foreign Brands.
Foreign brands like LG, Sony, Samsung, Mitsubishi and Haier etc. are a big threat for
local brands. The quality and brand image of foreign brands is high as compared to
local brands. Foreign brands have captured the market of split AC and television. LG
and Sony are the market leader in television sector. Local brands can’t compete with
these companies in this sector.


Company’s buyers are the people who ultimately purchase and consume its products. If
there are so many brands and products available in the market at different prices, the
bargaining power of the buyers will be high because they have many alternatives, they
can demand to lower the prices. On the other hand if there are few brands or companies
in the market, then the buyers will be in a weak position to bargain. As a result, the
company can raise its prices and earn greater profits. If we see the Pakistani industry
the bargaining power of the buyers is very high because a variety of products are
available in the market at different prices. So the buyers can choose the product
according to his requirements.


Suppliers can be viewed as a threat when they are in few numbers in the market. In that
case, the suppliers are able to force up the price of inputs. The after effects
of that can result in the reduction in the quality of inputs. If the suppliers of
PEL Company are weak then company will force the suppliers to reduce the
prices of input and demand for higher quality. If the suppliers are selling the
products that have very few substitutes and are differentiated from others,
then the suppliers are always in good bargaining position.


Pak Electron Limited Change your Life

There is no real substitute for the products of this industry. Refrigerators and deep
freezer have there own attributes. Cold stores can be substitutes for these products, but
these substitutes are more costly and can’t be easily approached.

The strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of PEL are discussed


• Strengths:
PEL has the following strengths.
 Brand Name
 Strong Dealer Network
 Quality Products
 Best Sales Services
 Market leader in WRAC
 Number 2 in Refrigerators in Pakistan
 Strong Management Team
 Distribution of Authority
 Research and Development Department
 Free Customer Service

Brand Name:
PEL has created a strong brand image in the mind of the customers
through higher quality and low prices. The customers of PEL always prefer its
home appliances like Window AC, split AC and refrigerators, during the time of
purchase. PEL is a popular company in Pakistan and every one knows about the
PEL products and its brand name. That’s why PEL is a market leader when it
comes to Window AC.

Strong Dealer Network:

Pak Electron Limited Change your Life

It is also the plus point for PEL that it has developed a strong dealer
network in the market. The dealers always try to sell the PEL products to the
customers because, the company for its products, gives them a high margin. The
management of PEL also provides more incentives to their dealers than their
competitors. Dealers are very conscious about the PEL products and always guide
the customer in buying the PEL products.

Quality Products:
PEL is also in a strong position because it provides superior quality
products to customers. So it gives an edge to company over its competitors. Due
to best quality, guarantee of products of PEL is more than its competitors.

Best Sales Services:

PEL provides the after sale service to customers which increases the
customers satisfaction. The biggest strength of services department is that it
handles a complaint within 24 hours in any part of the country, that helps in
increasing the satisfaction level of customers.

Market leader in WRAC (Window Room Air Conditioner):

It is also strength of PEL that it is a market leader in WRAC. Costumer
always gives preference to PEL in window AC market because of low price, high
quality and durability.

Number Two in Refrigerators in Pakistan:

After the Dawlance refrigerators, PEL has the second position in the
refrigerators market. PEL is gradually coming up in refrigerator market and
increasing its market share. Due to improved quality, innovative features and
good sales services PEL is becoming the first choice for customers.

Strong Management Team:

It is another plus point that PEL has a strong management. Its employees
are competent, efficient, skilled and knowledge. They always cooperate with the
top management in achieving of goals that are assigned to them. Employees are

Pak Electron Limited Change your Life

well aware about the company objectives and are committed to the development
of company.
Distribution of Authority:
Top management of PEL delegates the power to the subordinates for
achieving the marketing objectives in a specified time period. So every manager
has an authority to take decisions to achieve the goals of company. In this way
they save the time and react quickly.

Research and Development Department:

PEL has a strong research and development department that is
continuously trying to develop new features for the products. R&D department
spends huge amount of money for the development of new products.

Free Customer Service:

PEL provides free customer service for one year to its customers. The
customers who buy the PEL products become brand loyal due to this facility.

• Weaknesses of PEL:

Like other companies PEL has some weaknesses. If PEL overcomes these
weaknesses then it can become a market leader in home appliances. PEL looses
some competitive edge in the following areas:
 Financial Problems
 Lack of advertisement
 System variations
 Lack of Product range
 Less Utilization of capacity

Financial problems:
Sometimes PEL faces the financial problems because its stocks are so
much piled up in the stores that creates problem of cash flow because when the
stocks are not sold and the production is in process for 24 hours a day then the
company faces such problems.

Pak Electron Limited Change your Life

Lack of advertisement:
It is a second major weakness of PEL that it is not a vigorous advertiser.
Only recently has PEL invested a considerable amount in advertisement, but when
we look at its competitors, PEL still has to do a lot in this sector.

System variations:
It is also the main weakness of PEL that there is a rapid change in polices
of selling the products. That creates problems for the selling team to sell the
products to the dealers because the top management requires urgent amount of
money. Thus the products are sometimes sold on hard cash that reduces the prices
of products that creates problems for the management.

Lack of Product Range:

PEL has introduced more products of consumer items but there are more
needs to develop new consumer items like PEL washing Machines, Vacuum
cleaner and other items.

Less utilization of capacity:

Due to lack of finance a company cannot utilize all its resources on its full
capacity. It increases the cost of products per unit that decreases the profit margin
of each consumer item. Sometimes, the company cannot allocate the resources
according to the requirements of the production department, which later on
becomes a problem for the complete utilization of resources.

• Opportunities for PEL:

For PEL, there are more opportunities for expansion in business. Following are
the opportunities for the PEL.
 Exploration of market in Pakistan
 Increase in product range
 Export opportunity
 Increase in production capacit

Pak Electron Limited Change your Life

Exploration of market in Pakistan:

PEL has the opportunity to explore the market in all over the Pakistan.
Even though PEL has introduced its products in many cities of Pakistan but there
are so many places that are yet to be exploited.

Increase in Product Range:

PEL can increase its product range that will be more profitable for the
company. There are more needs to develop new consumer items like PEL washing
Machines, Vacuum cleaner and other items.

Export opportunity:
PEL has also the opportunity to export their products in other international
countries like UAE, SAUDI ARABIA, and other Arabic and African countries.

Increase in production Line:

Company can also increase its production line at the maximum level that
will increase the efficiency of the employees and will also reduce the total cost.

• Threats for PEL:

Following are the main threats for the PEL:
Strong competition
China’s product introduction in the market
Price war
Slow growth rate in Pakistan
Instability of government
Tax department
World Trade Organization
Strong competition:
There is very strong competition in the home appliance division. Every
company adopts different strategies for selling of the products. It reduces the
profit margin of each company and increases the bargaining power of the buyers
who will demand higher quality of products at lower cost.

Pak Electron Limited Change your Life

China’s product:
China’s products are another threat for the Pakistani companies because
these products are cheaper than the Pakistani products. China products stress the
indigenous companies to lower the quality and prices that will not be profitable in
the long run.

Price war:
As there is stiff competition in the home appliance market that will cause
the price war.

Slow growth rate in Pakistan:

There is also slow growth rate of home appliance in Pakistan that will
increase the stocks of the company. Although, this industry is in the growth phase,
but the speed of the growth is very slow.

Instability of Government:
The rapid changes in governments will become a threat for the companies
because every government adopts new policies for the industries. So it
increasesthe uncertainty for the investors who want to invest heavy amounts in
their new projects.

Tax department:
Tax department is another major threat for the company that will restrain
the business expansion. There is a most complicated tax procedure operating in
the country that creates hurdle in the production and smooth functioning of
different companies in Pakistan.

World trade organization:

World trade organization will give the permission in 2005 to each company of
home appliance to export their products after paying less duties or duty free products.
That will increase the pressures for the indigenous companies to reduce the prices and
increase the quality. It will increase the competition among the foreign companies and
indigenous companies.

market share.
 Washing machine and microwave oven are the products of PEL having low
market share but high annual growth

Dog is the business unit that has small market share as well as low annual market
growth rate. A company normally would be unwise to invest substantial funds in SBUs
in this category. Marketing strategies for dogs are intended to maximize any potential
profits by minimizing expenditures or to promote a differential advantage to build
market shareAnd the company can diverts or liquidate the dog product
 Deep freezer is the product of PEL having low market share plus low annual
growth share.

In competitive environment challengers strategies are very significant to survive in the

market. Firms in this category can adopt one of the following strategies:The leader is
attacked but it is very risky and high payoff.Company can attack unprogressive and
under financed firms, it is less risky and less payoffIt can also attack on small local and
regional firms, it is neither risky nor high payoff

Choosing A General attack strategies:

Frontal attack:
The attacker matches its opponent price, product, advertisement and distribution. The
principle of force says that side with greater manpower (resources) will win

Guerrilla Warfare:
It consists of small but continuous attacks to harass and demoralize the opponents.

Pak Electron Limited Change your Life

Encirclement attack:
It involves launching grand offenses on several fronts attack on every feature of

As far as PEL is concerned, it uses technological leap fogging strategy to attack. PEL is
launching products having several innovative features to differentiate its product from

♦ Water dispenser refrigerator is the product having innovative feature

of getting cool water without opening refrigerator
♦ 6- Series refrigerator is the product having differential feature of light

Price is a strong element in the marketing mix. It has a direct impact on the customer,
business. To the consumer, the price is a major indicator of the quality of good and an
important factor in making decision about it’s purchase
In deciding the price the business management must consider the kind of competition
in the market for the good, the elasticity of demand for product, its cost of production
As far as PEL organization is concerned, sets its prices of product line regarding the
competition in the market.

expectations regarding necessities of home appliances. So company tries to focus on
this portion of society, while setting the prices.
