The company was founded by Mr Vrajlal Parekh. But the company is also a major player in manufacturing crates which are used for commercial purposes. 2009 Nilkamal Plastics : Creating Value Through Convenience Corporate Brand : Nilkamal Agency : Triton Brand Analysis Count : 385 Nilkamal is a company that successfully branded a commodity. The Indian home furniture market is huge with a market size of around Rs 14000 crores. MARCH 03. The brand has a long history dating back to 1934. Nilkamal Plastics was born in 1956 and became and independent company in 1981. Mr Vrajlal Parekh started manufactur ing metal buttons from his small factory.TUESDAY. he started producing plastic products and the company was called Standard Plastics. Majority of the market is in the unorganized sector. Nilkamal is the market leader in the plastic molded furniture segment in India. 40% of which is in the unorganized sector. Nilkamal operates in the moulded furniture market which is around Rs 950 crores. Nilkamal is known for its plastic chairs . But Nilkamal was able to . Nilkamal is a brand that popularised the use of plastic chairs at homes . Earlier households used to purchase only wooden /steel furnitures. In 1950. According to reports .

baby chairs which became popular.The success of Nilkamal prompted many players to enter the segment.break that mindset . the brand building gave Nilkamal more mileage and also premium prices. Nilkamal is the market leader in the segment with a share of over 37%. The company also introduced a new range of office furniture brand Novella. dining tables . Nikamal is a brand that is heavily associated with plastic furniture. The brand was slowly moving towards becoming a lifestyle furniture player. During this time. Recently the brand also launched a range of plastic Cupboards and cabinets branded as Freedom. Households earlier was averse to plastic chairs because it looked ugly and was not perceived to be strong. Since the designs could be easily copied. In 2005. In a market which was dominated by unorganized players. it was difficult for Nilkamal to sustain the growth momentum. These retail outlets showcased the new range of home solutions from the company. The brand introduced knocked down furniture and also sofa sets . the brand moved from molded furniture to home solutions. The brand has a high credibility among the consumers.This was backed by heavy promotions using various media. Nilkamal did this by creating good designs and also taking care of the quality factor.But the market for moulded furnitures has become stagnant. the brand ventured into retail business by launching large retail format under the brand name @home. The major problem faced by the brand is that plastic is . Nilkamal changed that perception by introducing well designed chairs .

Branded wooden furniture are out of reach for many middle class customers. As a consumer. There is a flood of imported furniture which looks good and priced affordably. Hence there is a huge potential for affordable designer furniture. it could leverage that equity in creating an affordable range of home solutions to the Indian middle class. Currently this market is being captured by cheap imports from China. I have often found branded furniture to be terribly overpriced for the quality it delivers. Nilkamal have the brand equity to tap this potential. Although it is heavily associated with plastics. Plastic furnitures lack the glamour and home makers tried to avoid these products. But I think there is a huge potential for Nilkamal in developing itself to a highly creative furniture company. .associated with cheap furniture and this has prevented the penetration of this product category into high -margin household furniture segment.
