Bharti Airtel- Ansoff Matrix

The Ansoff Matrix helps to define the product strategy which encompasses the product, its marketing strategies and its management altogether. To portray alternative corporate growth strategies, Igor Ansoff conceptualized a matrix that focused on the firms present and potential products and markets / customers. He called the four product-market strategic alternatives Market penetration [existing market + existing product], Market development [existing product + new market],

Product development [existing market + new product], and Diversification [new product + new market].

The company should follow all four strategies depending on the demand and product as indicated in the matrix. The company perhaps needs to focus more on the comparatively neglected area of diversification. MARKET PENETRATION: Airtel entered in broadband and fixed phone line market as a part of its market penetration strategy. PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT: IPLC products. Digicel Business IPLC or International Private Leased Circuit provides your business with dedicated point-to-point data networks. It is an ideal communication tool if you operate in multiple markets as it provides immediate connection to global associates and assets, direct links between HQ and branch, immediate access to data banks- live or back-up and real time links to call centers. MARKET DEVELOPMENT: Airtel is now looking for overseas market. Company has already made their presence in Nigeria and Seychelles. This move can be categorized as development of newer markets for the company to move into. DIVERSIFICATION: Airtel has now outsourcing sum of its services like customer services with IBM which is diverting from its mainstream telecom operation.
